Helena Christensen has stepped out from behind the camera and back in front of the lens for a new photo shoot for Madame Figaro magazine - and it's so hot she's almost sizzling.

The supermodel and photographer, 46, shows of her enviable figure in an 11-page shoot for the French fashion magazine, and barely looks a day over 25 while posing topless in the sand in a pair of teeny gold shorts Kylie would be proud of.

Photographed by Fred Meylan on the idyllic beaches of Saint Martin, Helena looks as stunning as she did in Chris Isaak's music video for 'Wicked Game', directed by Herb Ritts back in 1989. Sigh.

She now lives in New York, and spends a lot of her time working as a photographer, shooting the likes of Liv Tyler, Julianne Moore and Bono, for publications like Vs. Magazine and NYLON, as well as shooting documentary photography as an Oxfam ambassador.

When she manages to get a day off, she spends it with family, saying, "I like to spend time outdoors with my son and my partner, or leave for the weekend to the mountains north of New York to run outside."

And how does she keep looking so good? "I never followed any diet, I love good food. I have a good metabolism," she explained. "I started doing sports quite late, around 30 years. I started because I wanted to feel more toned. I hate endurance sports, it would be impossible for me to run a marathon. I love the intense sports, such as boxing or sprint."

Still keeping a hand in fashion, Helena has recently designed a new clothing range and created a signature fragrance, deadofnight by Strange Love - sold exclusively at Harrods in the UK.

The latest issue of Madame Figaro is on sale now.
