Tamara Mellon taps Helena Christensen for Fall ’22 campaign
Oh my! Helena Christensen shows off her legendary modeling chops as the new campaign star for Tamara Mellon.

I have always admired Helena’s work and outstanding personal achievements — for me her elegance and unique sense of style make her the quintessential Tamara Mellon woman, which made her a natural fit for our F/W’22 campaign.” Feast your eyes on the sizzling campaign, below:
