Backstage at Vogue World, Photographed by Helena Christensen

Vogue World brought together the biggest names in fashion for a one-night-only runway event and street fair on a cobblestoned block in Manhattan’s meatpacking district. Stars such as Kourtney Kardashian Barker, Travis Barker, Lori Harvey, and Lil Nas X sat in the front row, and the talent on the runway was equally stacked. Joining Serena Williams, who opened the show in caped, custom Balenciaga, were Gigi Hadid, Precious Lee, Shalom Harlow, Emily Ratajkowski….the list goes on and on. 

Helena Christensen, one of the original supermodels and an accomplished photographer, graciously agreed to document the backstage magic at Vogue World through a Kodak film camera. She took a sweet mirror selfie with piles of hair and makeup products, and persuaded models such as Hadid, Karlie Kloss, and Liya Kebede to take a break from their prep to pose (that group snap with Irina Shayk posing with a fork? A framer for sure). Below, see the fittings, the dogs, and the dancers that Christensen captured at Vogue World.
