It would seem that the original Supermodels are waking from their yoga-filled, humanitarian-seeking slumbers to get back to what they do best: show off their incredible bodies.

Hot on the heels of Christy Turlington, 44, bouncing back with three new ad campaigns under her belt, and Elle Macpherson, 49, recreating a nude Playboy cover for Harper's Bazaar, comes Helena Christensen and a very naughty little photo shoot.

The 44-year-old mother-of-one is the new cover star of FutureClaw magazine, and leaves no debate as to her current physical state.

Shot in her New York apartment by Gregory Derkenne, FutureClaw remark that she is: "styled in her own clothes. (or no clothes..)."

Indeed, the beauty admits how she: "opened my closet doors and picked the pieces as the day went along."

Props from her eclectic home also feature, including a vintage mannequin and a couple of strategically-placed ceramic swans to preserve her modesty. The images have proven so popular that the magazine's website has crashed due to an influx of traffic.

But while the half-Peruvian, half-Danish pin-up is comfortable with revealing herself on camera, she definitely won't be taking to social networking sites to air her views.

"I do understand why those sites can be very useful to people, I even get why people end up more or less addicted, but they just don't appeal to me. Virtual reality seems to suck up too much time. I also do not have any desire to publicly talk about my daily whereabouts."

Alongside raising her 11-year-old son, Mingus, the Super has branched out a successful photographer.

"I always love shooting Natalia Vodianova, she has such an awesome face and moves with such grace and elegance," reveals Christensen.

The late Gianni Versace once declared that Helena had the best body in the business, and a couple of decades on, we'd be inclined to agree. But what makes a body beautiful for her? "All the naked women in Helmut Newton pictures," she explains: "they were long, lean, toned and yet feminine and curvaceous."
