Helena Christensen, 54, poses in legwarmers after watching Flashdance | The Sun

SUPERMODEL Helena Christensen shows her beauty can straddle the eras — as she lounges around in legwarmers.

The Dane, 54, who shot to fame in the 1990s, said she was inspired to pull them on after watching 1983 flick Flashdance.

Fashion designer Bella Freud replied to Helena’s post on Instagram: “It must be such fun being you.”

Helena recently confessed that she used to buy and wear used men’s underpants.

The shock revelation comes after the Danish beauty, 54, has taken part in dozens of high profile lingerie campaigns and was a Victoria’s Secret Angel.

The brunette said: “I didn’t have fashion magazines, but as a teenager one of my favourite stores was a secondhand one.
