Helena Christensen has cryptically told her Instagram followers she’s received “flowers and an apology” following the Alexandra Shulman fall out.
Former British Vogue editor Shulman took aim at the Danish model’s outfit of choice for Gigi Hadid’s recent denim-themed birthday party, calling her corset and jeans look “tacky” and declaring her too old to wear the black lacy bustier.
Fellow supermodels Naomi Campbell, Karen Elson, and Linda Evangelista, as well Shulman’s Vogue replacement Edward Enninful, leapt to the 50-year-old beauty’s defense, and now Christensen has seemingly updated her followers with a turn of events.
Writing on her Instagram Stories, she shared, “We all make mistakes. Flowers and apology received,” followed by a shaking hands emoji.
Hours earlier, she also posted a lengthy statement about corsets, explaining all about the undergarment.
Copying and pasting a passage from Wikipedia, the catwalk star added a smirking face emoji to a line referencing journalists.
“For dress reformists of the late 1800s, corsets were a dangerous moral ‘evil’, promoting promiscuous views of female bodies and superficial dalliance into fashion whims,” the post reads. “The obvious health risks, including damaged and rearranged internal organs, compromised fertility; weakness and general depletion of health were also blamed on excessive corsetry… Preachers inveighed against tightlacing, doctors counseled patients against it (smirking emoji) journalists wrote articles condemning the vanity and frivolity of women who would sacrifice their health for the sake of fashion.
“Whereas for many corseting was accepted as necessary for beauty, health, and an upright military-style posture, dress reformists viewed tightlacing as vain and, especially at the height of the era of Victorian morality, a sign of moral indecency.”
A defiant Christensen donned the lace garment for a second event over the weekend, writing next to snap: “Let’s continue to elevate and support each other, all you beautiful, smart, fun, sexy, hardworking, talented, nurturing women out there #ooopssheworeabustieragain.”
