Making a triumphant return to the fashion world, Danish legendary supermodel Helena Christensen covers the new issue of Net-a-Porter's 'The Edit' magazine. Posing for a stunning spread inside the magazine's pages, Helena also comments on her extensive career as a model. She says that when she was starting out, many of her fellow models weren't interested in becoming supermodels but they did try to push themselves to the next level: "None of the girls ever cared much about the actual supermodel phenomenon. We just worked really hard and put ourselves into each shoot 100 per cent. If you work at a level where you're fortunate enough to travel then you learn about people, psychology, languages, cultures, history... It's literally one big visual experience."

Helena has been an Oxfam ambassador since 2010 and admits that taking photos while working with Oxfam was an amazing experience because she got to see a whole new world: "It was like being in photography school. I never really felt like I was modelling so much as being a fly on the wall and absorbing everything. I mean, modelling was fun, but it was like, 'OK, I'm going to have to do this in order to get all the rest in'."

Opening up on her every day off-duty style, Helena comments that she loves vintage dresses and usually just picks one for daily wear. She likes how easy and fuss-free a relaxed dress can be: "A beautiful vintage dress is always easiest for me. There's no pressure, there's no stress and I feel very comfortable. We have a certain amount of time on earth. When you look in your wardrobe, you wear what's at the front, you know?"
