'90s Supermodels Are Sexier Than Ever - Here's the Photo Proof

You know who looks amazing naked these days? Supermodel Helena Christensen. Know how we know? Because she dared to bare just about all in the latest issue of FutureClaw magazine. The above left shot is the tamest pic of the bunch (you’ll have to click to see the rest) and it’s still pretty steamy.

Christensen, 44, is just the latest in her cohort of 1990s supermodels to show off an unbelievably smoking bod into her fifth decade. The youngest of the group, 39-year-old Kate Moss, recently stripped down for St. Tropez (below), while the eldest, Elle Macpherson, 49, recreated an iconic Playboy cover for Harper’s Bazaar Australia (bottom photo).

Christy Turlington, 44, has booked a spate of sexy ads lately, including Jason Wu (above in the red dress) and Calvin Klein intimates; the latter ads aren’t out yet, but she confessed to being nervous to get back into the famous underwear at her age (nothing to worry about there, Christy!).

Finally, Paulina Porizkova, 48, showed no such reservations about showing some skin, posting a super-sexy bikini pic to her own Twitter with the caption “Total heaven.” We have a feeling her husband, rocker Ric Ocasek, agreed with the sentiment.

Now we know that these women were called supermodels for a reason — the ability to stay in such killer shape year after year is truly superhuman. (P.S. All of these women are moms, which is even more amazing!)

Tell us: What do you think of the stars’ sexy photos? Are you as impressed by their bodies as we are?

The irony is they look better now than they did 20 years ago, probably because they likely aren’t starving themselves and/or doing drugs like they did back then. The only ribs I like to see sticking out are ones from a pig or cow, slathered with BBQ sauce, and plopped onto on my dinner plate, thank you very much.

I think all of the women except Kate Moss are gorgeous and always have been. Kate Moss is from the “waif” era and that just isn’t attractive. She’s getting better with age but all of the women are better as they have aged.

Beautiful lady (Christiansen), but pics are clearly heavy with photoshop. See real pics of her on google.

Jenny! on

I gotta say that first pic with her in a red dress is a really.. loose looking pose, beautiful dress nicely set table and a f u ck me look/pose to go with it.

Anna on

Kudos to the doctors involved! They look great…

Sonya on

These woman are a hundred times more beautiful than the models of today. I do not think Gisele Bundchen is attractive at all. Put her next to Helena Christensen and she’s just a plain jane.

Sonya on

To Anna: You are just jealous. Doctors can only do so much. You have to have a beautiful body, bone structure and face to look this beautiful. Sorry you think so poorly of yourself that you have to hate and be jealous on beautiful women.

kim on

i think they all look amazing. gives me high hopes for my future…its all about taking care of yourself…

happymomof2 on

I have seen Helena ‘in the flesh’, and I would love to look as fab as she does, when I reach her age in a few years time!!!
I better start working out and eat less of the yummy spareribs ‘PS’ spoke about above ;o))

Kim on

These images are highly editted – these women do not look like this in the original image. I work in this industry and if you knew the amount of retouching that occurs in every image you are spoon fed to beleiving is ‘real’. They’re selling you a product, that’s it. Unfortunately women and girls see these modified shots and think it’s real…it’s not and wish People didn’t glorify it.

Jenny on

Christy Turlington looks awkward and kind of crazy in that ad. It’s kind of scaring me :/

Denise on

The first two pictures is Helena on the left and Christy Turlington on the right in the red dress.

Sammi on

Now these are supermodels, Christy Turlington is my favourite.

Luke on

The reason why they look better now it because they are photoshopped to look however they want. There is no phenomenon going on here with the female body. PHOTOSHOP PEOPLE. PHOTOSHOP.

Jenny on

To Sonya: Get off your high horse. You’re crazy if you think there’s no work done in these pictures. Maybe not necessarily medical, but definitely digital.

Christy Turlington was in an ad for a make up product and it was so heavily photoshopped that they banned it in Europe!

JRoo on

With as much air-brushing these magazines do, how can you believe what you are seeing?

Lunabell on

The ad was banned in the UK.

Mark on

Look at those gorgeous @sses. Don’t be jealous ladies. Just firm yours up a bit and drop the donuts and bonbons.

Jenna on

So much hotter then the models these days. These women are classic beauties


Please!! I have friends that are in their early 50s that put these women to SHAME!!! Black women…you know what they say, and there’s NOTHING to photoshop!!!

kellyrsmith15 on

Helena looks amazing!! As does Christy Turlington and Kate Moss. Never really thought Elle was that beautiful so I have no comment on her. They all look a hundred times better than most of todays supermodels…

kk on

idk what does it poves.. like, kate moss for me is hte most photoshoped model ive seen, i think
for a reason, people seems to love her young past loook so much, that they still put this girl on covers with huge ammount of photoshop.. but i think its also her persona, cause she is ricky, takes drugs n like parties.. thats how she mantains herself famous

kk on

the last one is a real picture.. the others not

kk on

for me all r normal looking but the first one whos got light eyes
thats beautiful, but other r normal to me
doest catch my attention at all

Ellue on

The only thing they are showing is that somehow looks are all that matters. Shame, really. I would rather see photos of women who have accomplished something other than only being just a midel, using your face and body to earn money.

Dina on

Damn you Photoshop for letting us poor mortals to think these woman look like this at that age. I am calling this BULLSH@#$%%%

Rebecca on

Helena looks amazing! On a side note, she and the actor who plays Daryl on The Walking Dead have a child together lol.
They actually all look really great, but Paulina’s face is kind of awkward in that picture. Ella looks even better than she used to. Kate Moss is over photoshopped as usual.

maroon5girl on

re-touching ora not those women are just as gorgeous as ever!! As a 45 yr old woman I can vouch that things can still look good after 40. You just have to work at it. : ) I feel better now than I did in my 20′s and it is because I stay active. There are plenty of non-models who look just as good! Look around, we’re everywhere!!! Beauty has no age limit.

ron on

Now these are supers. So sick of this new age egg headed fat faced model trend they got going on now, such as that chipmunk face miranda kerr or bucked tooth beaver adrian lima, yuck. They can’t model well like these women either, hence why they can’t even book great covers and ads in their 20s let aone their 40s
