The one and only 1990s supermodel Helena Christensen was recently in Dublin to launch the new Triumph Essence collection, for which she will be brand ambassador. I love how, even though Helena looks drop dead gorgeous in the above photograph, it’s serious proof of photoshop in action – and pointless photoshop, at that! She looks amazing in the flesh; why try to improve on near perfection?!

The lingerie is available in Brown Thomas now – and, I have to say, I really like what I’ve seen of the range. Simple, pretty styles with flirty accents – lace and polka dots. (I do kind of wish Helena had been in her underwear at the photocall!)

I love Helena’s dress, too – just stunning.

As a last and perhaps not-all-that-important point, I wish nobody would ever put models in heels and underwear together. It just feels so trashy to me; a bare foot is so much classier and more natural. (That said, check out the smize on Yomiko – fiiiiiierce!)

On that note, the latest series (series 18, can you believe it?) of America’s Next Top Model is pitching American and British girls against one another, and it is TV gold! Gold.
