Some things – and some people – get better with age. Put Helena Christensen in the elite category of vintage wine and George Clooney. At 43, the former supermodel and current mom/photographer looks as radiant as ever. It also looks like her style has evolved with grace.
Strolling with her son in the Manhattan’s West Village last week, Helena was the epitome of effortless chic, proving that the nautical theme translates smoothly to city streets and cementing the fact that this spring is all about purposeful matching! Her rope-handled Michael Kors tote is the perfect topper to a demure cherry dress and ballet flats, oversized sunnies, and a classic trench, accented with coordinating blue trim. I love a girl who dresses for her bag and who makes it all appear impossibly easy.
Rope in Helena’s look with other takes on the seafaring trend, like Tory Burch’s two-tone straw top-handle ($395), Lanvin’s luxurious leather bucket ($1,975), or Yves Saint Laurent’s knotty-print hobo ($1,495).
