Brooke Shields and Helena Christensen recently teamed up for a stunning swimsuit shoot, and have been sharing some of the resulting snaps on their respective Instagram accounts over the past several days.
Shields, 55, first teased the collaboration last week, posting a photo of herself basking on the beach in a sunny yellow one-piece with the word “sunkissed” printed across the front.
“Working on something special with my friend @helenachristensen. You are incredible,” the “Blue Lagoon” actress wrote.
Christensen, 51, shared more images from the shoot a few days later, including a number of black-and-white snaps of Shields posing in a garden surrounded by flowers and showing off her fit figure in a classic black bathing suit.
“Capturing a person’s essence isn’t always so simple. You wish to reach through the complex, sometimes guarded layers to find the vulnerable, raw, yearning truth in their heart and mind,” the Danish beauty captioned her post.
“This beautiful woman is someone who has shown those qualities to my camera lens for years. I am grateful to have her, not only as an inspiring photography subject but also as a caring, smart, witty, honest friend. And I’m excited to be a part of a personal project she’s been working hard on for a while now.”
Commented Shields, “I trust you, I respect you, I’m here for you, and I appreciate you. I thank you for your eye, your character and your belief.”
The “Suddenly Susan” star also Instagrammed some of the sultry shots on her own page Wednesday, calling Christensen “a great friend and a dream collaborator.”
“Thank you for believing in my vision and helping bring it to life,” she wrote.
