Helena Christensen smoulders in latest photoshoot

The Danish supermodel looks like she never lost it for her latest magazine spread.

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."

Age cannot wither her... but this week at 39 Kate Moss made a rare fashion faux pas at Paris Fashion Week, wearing a sheer body stocking, which didn't cover her bum cheeks.
Stella Tennant is a 42-year-old mother of four but also Karl Lagerfeld's muse and regularly takes to the catwalk for the Chanel shows.

37-year-old Carolyn Murphy has been modelling since the age of 15 and recently landed French label Paul Joe's spring/summer 2013 campaign.
Stephanie Seymour is another 44-years-old model and a mother of four who still, as demonstrated in this spring/summer campaign for Jason Wu, is as gorgeous as ever.
The grey hair gives away her 46 years but Kristen McMenamy is as in demand as ever, most recently as the face of Versace couture power suits.
42-year-old Naomi Campbell is still gracing the pages of glossy magazines and she is also set to appear on modelling show The Face this year.
Now 47-year-old Linda Evangelista famously claimed that she wouldn't get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day is the face of Chanel's eyewear campaign, at Karl Lagerfeld's request.
Christy Turlington is now 44-year-old, married to actor Ed Burns and the mum of two. She is attached to numerous charities but still finds time to front campaigns for the likes of Esprit.
42-year-old Claudia Schiffer was the star of the Guess' 30-year anniversary shoot, a role that made her famous in 1989. Twenty-three years on, she's hardly changed a bit.

The 41-year-old German model Nadja Auermann launched her own perfume in recent years but was convicted of tax evasion by a German court in 2011.

Cindy Crawford hasn't aged a day since the 1990s when she was queen of the supermodels.
Christie Brinkley is 59 years old, and if possible, even more gorgeous than she was in the heyday of her modelling career.
The blonde supermodel was the All-American face every major brand wanted in the 1980s.

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."
