Supermodel Helena Christensen reveals she almost ran out of food when stranded in shark-infested waters during a Vogue magazine fashion shoot

Supermodel Helena Christensen has revealed how she almost ran out of food when stranded in shark-infested waters during a Vogue magazine fashion shoot.

The 51-year-old was on a modelling assignment in the Indian Ocean with photographer Fabrizio Ferri when their boat broke down.

Miles from land and with food and water supplies dwindling, Ferri decided to have a dip in the ocean while waiting for help to arrive.

Worrying: Supermodel Helena Christensen, 51, has revealed how she almost ran out of food when stranded in shark-infested waters during a Vogue magazine fashion shoot

Helena – who recently starred in a campaign for lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret – told The Sunday Times: ‘Fabrizio was about to dive into the ocean when the captain came running up from the lower deck, waving his arms and screaming for him to stop.

‘The captain said that had Fabrizio jumped in he would not have resurfaced because it was mating and feeding time for the sharks.

‘A few days later, having almost run out of food and water, we were rescued.’

In true supermodel fashion, Helena has been staging photoshoots at her home in upstate New York during the lockdown.

In pictures posted on Instagram she wore items from her fashion line with business partner and fellow Dane Camilla Staerk. 

Helena has been staying at her Catskills home with Camilla as well as her son Mingus, 20, who she shares with actor ex Norman Reedus. 

The beauty revealed she would be using the time to work on her clothing designs.

‘Navigating this surreal time is challenging for us all, but at least we are in this together. Wanted to share how grateful we are for family, friendships and our incredible team and partners.

‘Being in nature always makes us feel creative and we have been thinking about how to keep the wheels moving and help our fellow NY’ers…’

Good cause: The beauty revealed she would be using the time in lockdown to work on her clothing designs and revealed on social media that she would donate a percentage of sales from her accessories range to feel the elderly housebound in New York during the crisis
