She’s now facing backlash for calling the supermodel’s look “tacky” considering her age.
British Vogue’s former editor-in-chief is in hot water after slamming supermodel Helena Christensen‘s sexy outfit.
In a piece published by the Daily Mail over the weekend, fashion editrix Alexandra Shulman declared that Christensen, 50, was “too old” to wear the black lace bustier she paired with high-waisted jeans for Gigi Hadid’s 24th birthday party last week.
“We might like to think that 70 is the new 40 and 50 the new 30 but our clothes know the true story,” 61-year-old Shulman wrote, calling Christensen’s look “tacky” and comparing it to that of “the madam in a one-horse town.”
“Something you wore at 30 will never look the same on you 20 years later. Clothes don’t lie,” she added. “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.”
Christensen responded by posting a photo of herself wearing the same corset alongside designer Camilla Stærk and Tali Lennox. “Let’s continue to elevate and support each other, all you beautiful, smart, fun, sexy, hard working, talented, nurturing women out there,” she captioned the snap, along with the hashtag #ooopssheworeabustieragain.
The fashion legend’s famous friends flooded the comments section with support. “You are BEAUTIFUL inside and out,” wrote Edward Enninful, who replaced Shulman as British Vogue’s editor-in-chief in 2017. “She should be ashamed of herself. You are a goddess,” added Linda Evangelista, while Karen Elson wrote, “I just read that article. Bitch please … you are on fire!”
“Such a cheap shot, she has no right or claims to be writing such a ridiculous article,” fellow supermodel Naomi Campbell chimed in. “I’ve known you 30 years and whatever you wear, you wear it WELL with class and dignity!! Hold your head high and keep your drive.”
