Helena Christensen is one of our favorite faces, so we were thrilled when Monsoon announced her as the new face of their eco fashion range - even though Monsoon is only sold in Great Britain. Meanwhile, UK chain store New Look unveils its upcoming organic collection, which will be modeled by Fearne Cotton, a London TV presenter. What does this mean for American girls? Nothing - yet. But pop culture trends often trickle from the UK to the US - American Idol, text messaging, and fast fashion are good examples. So next season, if Selma Blair models a new brand of eco-friendly jeans from Gap... just don't say we didn't warn you.
Helena Christensen Tells Us Why She's Going Behind the Lens For Her Next Gig
Helena Christensen has made a career in front of the camera, but for her next gig she's stepping behind the lens. The Danish supermodel is teaming up with scouting and management agency Unsigned Management and Swarovski Crystallized to find the new faces for the Swarovski Crystallized Spring 2012 campaign. But Christensen won't just be lending her expert opinion as a model with an enviable 20 year career--she'll be photographing the campaign. We chatted with the supe about her passion for photography, her advice to young models, and why she got involved with the Unsigned Model Search with Swarovksi Crystallized.
