Happy birthday to the always gorgeous Helena Christensen! The Danish supermodel and photographer turns 47 today and we can't help but notice her jaw-dropping good looks, further proving age is just a number.

After competing as Miss Denmark in the 1986 Miss Universe pageant, Christensen moved to Paris to pursue a modeling career. It wasn't long before she appeared in a slew of advertising campaigns for brands, such as Chanel, Prada, and Revlon. Not only that, but Christensen is also a former VIctoria's Secret Angel and modeled alongside some of today's most iconic supermodels, including Tyra Banks, Karen Mulder, Daniela Pestova, and Stephanie Seymour.

Christensen's talents aren't limited to just modeling. She also helped to cofound Nylon magazine in 1999, serving as its creative director, and also co-owned the West Village boutique, Butik. Over the last decade, her photography has appeared in magazines, as well in exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad.

In honor of Christensen's many accomplishments, incredible modeling career, and many contributions to fashion, we raise a toast to the Danish beauty on her birthday.
