Fashion editor under fire for saying 50-year-old model Helena Christensen is 'too old' to wear bustier

Helena Christensen may be a supermodel, but even she is getting flak for stepping out in a sexy bustier.

The Danish beauty wore a black lace bustier paired with high-waisted jeans to fellow model Gigi Hadid’s denim-themed 24th birthday party on April 22. But the racy look fell flat with a fashion editor who called it “tacky” and argued that, at age 50, Christensen was “too old to wear that.”

Writing for the Daily Mail, former British Vogue editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman shamed Christensen for her outfit, accusing her of looking like “the madam in a one-horse town.”

Shulman, 61, went on to argue that women of a certain age should know better than to wear sexy or revealing items.

“We might like to think that 70 is the new 40 and 50 the new 30 but our clothes know the true story,” she wrote, later adding, “Something you wore at 30 will never look the same on you 20 years later. Clothes don’t lie.”

She also wrote, “When women’s bodies no longer serve any child-bearing purpose, we find flaunting them disturbing and slightly tragic. I don’t claim that this is fair. But it’s true.”

It didn’t take long for Shulman’s remarks to generate some swift backlash. Christensen fired back at the criticism by sharing a photo of her wearing another bustier alongside pals Tali Lennox and Camilla Stærk.

“Let’s continue to elevate and support each other, all you beautiful, smart, fun, sexy, hardworking, talented, nurturing women out there,” she wrote, adding the hashtag #ooopssheworeabustieragain.

Her famous friends were quick to back her up.

“You are BEAUTIFUL inside and out,” wrote Edward Enninful, who replaced Shulman at British Vogue.

“She should be ashamed of herself,” fellow supermodel Linda Evangelista added. “You are a goddess.”

“Just read that article,” wrote model Karen Elson. “B*tch please ... you are on fire!”

“U always do, my beautiful friend,” Julianne Moore responded.

“How dare any woman shame another woman,” creative director Ronnie Cooke Newhouse said of Shulman’s takedown. “And how sad she has become so bitter and sunk to such a low level. You look amazing.”

Shulman has not yet addressed the backlash, though critics have flooded her Instagram page with comments like “I’m sorry Alexandra but you’re too old to wear this” and “You’re just too old to post on social media.”

Christensen may have the last laugh. According to her Instagram Stories, her Stærk & Christensen brand — whose swimsuit collection was just modeled by Brooke Shields — could be whipping up some new merchandise: bustiers.

25 richest supermodels to walk Fashion Week

Ashley Graham Net Worth: $1 Million

Plus-sized model Ashley Graham made her NYFW debut in February 2017 while walking in the Michael Kors fashion show. The “America’s Next Top Model” judge has been modeling since age 12 and is passionate about helping women appreciate their bodies at any size.

She hasn’t yet made Forbes’ list of top-earning models, but she did land a spot in the magazine’s "2016 30 Under 30: Art & Style" compilation.

Jasmine Tookes Net Worth: $5 Million

In February 2017, Jasmine Tookes stayed busy at New York Fashion Week, gracing the runway in 2017 collections by Jeremy Scott, Jonathan Simkhai and Prabal Gurung.

A Victoria’s Secret model since 2015, she made Forbes’ list of highest-paid models for the first time in 2016, when she earned $4 million.

Karolina Kurkova Net Worth: $10 Million

Former Victoria’s Secret model Karolina Kurkova has plenty of NYFW experience. Recently, she strutted her stuff in Christian Siriano’s February 2017 show and Marchesa's 2015 show.

It’s been almost a decade since Kurkova was included on Forbes’ list of highest-paid models, but in 2008 she made the cut with $5 million in earnings.

Bella Hadid Net Worth: $12 Million

Gigi Hadid’s younger sister is quickly making a name for herself in the fashion world. During the Fall 2017 New York Fashion Week, Hadid walked the runway for some of the world’s most prestigious designers, including Zadig & Voltaire, Alexander Wang, Brandon Maxwell, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Prabal Gurung, Anna Sui and Ralph Lauren.

According to a recent Los Angeles Times article, the model will also appear in this year's Victoria’s Secret fashion show, set for Nov. 28.

Gigi Hadid Net Worth: $13 Million

Current "It girl" Gigi Hadid has modeling in her DNA, as her mother — former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Yolanda Hadid — was a top model in the 1980s and 1990s. She took New York Fashion Week 2017 by storm in February, when she opened the shows of both Anna Sui and Jeremy Scott.

She’ll debut the fall Tommy x Gigi collection — her third collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger — on Sept. 19 in London. Hadid earned $9 million in 2016, according to Forbes.

Jourdan Dunn Net Worth: $13 Million

Discovered at a chain store in London when she was just 15 years old, Jourdan Dunn has been rocking NYFW for years. In February 2017, she walked in the Brandon Maxwell and La Perla fall shows.

Dunn made Forbes’ list of the highest-paid models in 2015, with $3.5 million in earnings for the year. An all-around fashionista, she launched athleisure line Londunn with Missguided in March 2017.

Karlie Kloss Net Worth: $16 Million

More than just a pretty face, former Victoria’s Secret Angel Karlie Kloss quit the lingerie company in 2015 to start classes at New York University. However, she left room in her schedule for NYFW, including an especially busy stint in February 2016, when she walked for Carolina Herrera, Diane von Furstenberg and Ralph Lauren, and opened and closed the show for Jeremy Scott.

Also a tech whiz, Kloss founded girls' coding camp Kode with Klossy in 2014. One of the top-earning models of 2016, Kloss made $10 million last year, according to Forbes.

Kendall Jenner Net Worth: $18 Million

Thanks to her family’s show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” the world has watched Kendall Jenner evolve from an adorable 11-year-old to a stunning and rich supermodel. During New York Fashion Week in February 2017, Jenner strutted the runway for Alexander Wang, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs and Anna Sui, and closed shows for both La Perla and Michael Kors.

In 2016, Jenner earned $10 million, giving her the No. 3 spot on Forbes’ list of highest-paid models.

Cara Delevingne Net Worth: $21 Million

The current face of PUMA’s “Do You” campaign, Cara Delevingne temporarily quit modeling in 2015 but came out of retirement in 2016 to walk for Chanel. It’s been awhile since the British model appeared at NYFW, but she did strut the catwalk for Marc Jacobs in September 2013.

Also an actress, Delevingne has starred in a number of films, including “Paper Towns” and “Suicide Squad.” She earned $8.5 million in 2016, according to Forbes.

Candice Swanepoel Net Worth: $25 Million

South African beauty Candice Swanepoel made a splash at NYFW in September 2015, when she tripped on the Givenchy runway. Like a true professional, she got up and finished her walk in style.

Continuing to impress, the Victoria’s Secret Angel returned to modeling lingerie for the brand in May 2017, just eight months after giving birth to her son. Forbes listed her 2016 earnings at $7 million.

Christy Turlington Net Worth: $30 Million

During the 1980s and 1990s, Christy Turlington was one of the most sought-after supermodels in the world. Certainly no stranger to NYFW, she walked the runway for Ralph Lauren in 1993.

When Forbes first started calculating model salaries in 1999, Turlington was one of five to be listed, with $7 million in earnings for the year. The brainy NYU alum wrote Karlie Kloss a recommendation letter for her alma mater and founded Every Mother Counts, a nonprofit focused on maternal health.

Naomi Campbell Net Worth: $60 Million

Discovered at age 15, Naomi Campbell has been modeling for more than three decades. She’s graced plenty of NYFW runways and walked for La Perla in February 2017.

Also an actress, Campbell recently appeared on several episodes of “Empire” and served as a coach on the reality series “The Face.” Forbes started calculating model earnings after Campbell’s heyday, but given her current net worth, she likely would have made the cut.

Adriana Lima Net Worth: $75 Million

Named a Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2000, the stunning Brazilian model is still wearing her wings 17 years later, making her the brand’s longest-running model. When she’s not performing her angelic duties, she makes time for NYFW, even walking in the September 2016 Marc Jacobs show.

Currently serving as the face of Maybelline, Vogue Eyewear and IWC watches, Lima ranked No. 2 on Forbes’ list of the highest-paid models for 2016, when she made $10.5 million.

Cindy Crawford Net Worth: $100 Million

One of the most iconic supermodels of all time, Cindy Crawford strutted the catwalk for Todd Oldham during NYFW in April 1994. A seasoned professional, she also walked the runway at the Esteban Cortazar spring/summer show in September 2003.

Crawford passed her good looks on to her lookalike 15-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber, who is now following in her mother’s footsteps with a modeling career of her own.

Crawford’s recent earnings haven’t been revealed. However, given her many business endeavors, the former model is likely doing well for herself. She currently has her own skincare line, Meaningful Beauty, and an interior design brand called Cindy Crawford Home.

Gisele Bündchen Net Worth: $360 Million

She retired from the runway in 2015, but Gisele Bündchen hit the catwalk at Alexander Wang’s February 2012 show, much to the surprise and delight of the crowd. By then, doing the model walk was second nature for the Brazilian beauty, who served as a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 1999 to 2006.

In 2016, Bündchen topped Forbes’ list of the highest-paid models with $30.5 million in earnings for the year.
