Helena Christensen is heating up the ‘gram.
The supermodel, 53, showed off a series of sexy looks yesterday as she stars in the new Coco de Mer lcons lingerie campaign — and her Instagram followers couldn’t get enough.
Posing in a sheer black lace “Hera” high-necked bra ($165) and Brazilian panty ($122) with a matching suspender belt ($133) and stockings, the brunette beauty leans against a railing above a sparkling pool in the first photo from the new ad campaign.
“Always love hanging out in my favorite lingerie @cocodemeruk,” Christensen wrote. “This is my second campaign working with this inspiring team consisting entirely of cool women. We had a blast capturing these images from a female gaze perspective.”
She also shared several behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot, posing in a strappy black “Sylph” bodysuit ($207) in one shot as a group of women surround her, and holding a paper fan in other snaps to combat the British heat wave.
Other pieces she modeled for the campaign include the Coco de Mer “Hera” bodysuit ($315), “Seraphine” slip ($261) and “Athena” bra ($144) and matching panty ($101).
Famous fans were wowed by the images, like Kate Bosworth, who commented “Damn” along with three flame emojis. Fellow ’90s model Shalom Harlow wrote “Wowsers” surrounded by two hearts, while Josh Brolin commented with five fire emojis.
This isn’t the first time she’s shown off her skivvies for the retailer; last year, the star was featured in another campaign for Coco de Mer, sharing some sexy snaps on Instagram as a preview.
Despite her toned physique, Christensen recently told the Telegraph that “no woman feels confident about her body all the time,” adding, “the good thing about getting older is realizing that everyone has the same insecurities about everything in life.”
The model told British Vogue that while it was difficult to think of herself as an “icon” for the campaign, “it’s wonderful to have a sense of yourself radiating something that makes others perhaps feel inspired by you.”
As for the secrets to prepping for such a big shoot in her fifties, Christensen said “it’s more in my head than physically,” adding that she already “eats more or less healthy” and is “very physically active” — the mom of one is a huge proponent of boxing and swimming in the wild.
And although she rocks lacy knickers for Coco de Mer, the supermodel — who recently chopped her hair off — admitted to the magazine that she’s actually a fan of granny panties.
“Sometimes I go through an entire winter wearing the big old cotton ones you find in vintage stores in all different kinds of beautiful colors,” she revealed.
However, don’t expect the ’90s icon to match her bra to her underwear for a big date. “I feel the same way about that as I do about anything that matches,” she told the Telegraph. “I always try to do quite the opposite because I hate anything that feels too perfect. My skin starts tingling around perfection.”
