She may have turned 40 in December, but Helena Christensen shows, she’s still got a body to die for as she poses nude for a French magazine.

The Danish-born supermodel recently kept her modesty by covering herself with her arms in a sultry black and white shoot for fashion publication Citizen K.

The racy photograph, which appeared on the cover of the magazine’s summer issue, came after the mother of one made her return to the catwalk in Stockholm, Sweden for the label Odd Molly.

Helena, who is dating musician Paul Banks from the band Interpol, is a natural in front of the lens, but she is also a whizz behind the scenes, and has been honing her photography skills.

She has officially snapped Bono, as well as stars such as REM’s Michael Stipe and Robbie Williams, and held her first exhibition in 2006.  Last year she fronted a lingerie campaign as a saucy pirate queen for Agent Provocateur, and stole the show from model-of-the-moment Alice Dellal, who is nearly 20 years her junior.

Helena, who has a nine-year-old son, Mingus, currently splits her time between New York and Copenhagen.
