Fifties Playboy magazines were my inspiration: Helena Christensen on her super sexy lingerie line - and how she got in shape to model it

Designer turn: Helena Christensen models her Triumph collection which is on sale now

She's used to modelling sexy lingerie but now Helena Christensen has turned her hand to designing it. And the Danish beauty has admitted she looked back to the women who were the sex sirens of their day for her creative ideas.
'Photographs of Eastern Europe in the '30s and '50s, Playboy magazines from the '50s and images of a young Jane Birkin (were my inspiration),' she told net-a-porter magazine.
The model added that she's a great fan of vintage clothing and wanted this to be reflected in her new range for Triumph.

Her designs, some of which are created using handmade lace and others embellished with Swarovski crystals, were first unveiled last Autumn but have only just gone on sale in stores.
The range includes bras, knickers and camisoles - some in neutral and dusky hues, others in seductive black and further pieces use art-nouveau-inspired print.
Mother-of-one Helena, who has a 12-year-son named Mingus with former husband Norman Reedus, looks stunning with an enviable flat stomach and slim legs as she poses in the range herself.

Versatile: The range includes bras, knickers and camisoles in white and black styles as well as print with lace detail and some embellished with Swarovski crystals

The supermodel revealed the secret to her toned figure at the age of 44 in the interview with the fashion website.
'I've been training with my boxing coach Jason Lee for seven years and when I’m at home in Copenhagen I enjoy swimming in the ocean. I also do yoga sun salutations,' she said.
While Helena is now enjoying her time as a designer - another collection for Triumph is in the works - she said she wouldn't rule out a return to the catwalk to showcase other people's styles.

In her Nineties heyday, she graced the runway for many of the greats including Versace, Valentino and Le Croix.
She revealed 'it wouldn't take much' for her to return to catwalk modelling, 'except for my own courage. Regardless of how simple it seems, it’s actually quite nerve-wracking.'
