Fabulous at 46: Brigitte Nielsen shows she’s still got the figure of an Amazonian Queen

She’s a fortysomething, but there’s no denying Danish actress Brigitte Nielsen still knows how to make a dress look sexy.

The Hollywood star, best known for her roles in Red Sonja and Rocky IV, struck a series of sultry poses as she marked her first high fashion shoot in two decades.

With her peroxide blonde hair and Amazonian stature, the star, 46, was photographed for DANSK magazine at the luxurious Goldstein Residence in Los Angeles.

In one shot, in a nod to her famous 1987 Herb Ritts beach pose, Brigitte is back in fishnets.

But rather than fishing nets, this time she opts for a revealing body-stocking, complete with knee-high Christopher Kane boots and a black skirt.

In the accompanying interview, she reflects on her look, her 1980s top model career and remembers her friends, fashion photographer Helmut Newton and designer Gianni Versace.

Brigitte was famous for getting down to her bare essentials in the Eighties and more recently rose to prominence after appearing on Celebrity Big Brother in 2005.

In one of the most memorable episodes in CBB history, Nielsen was confronted with her former mother-in-law Jackie Stallone, mother to Sylvester, who was sent in to spice things up.

As well as her reality TV appearances and acting, Brigitte has also become famous for her five marriages, her latest being to Mattia Dessi in 2006.

Speaking to DANSK, she revealed that she is proud of her achievements over the years and how she influences her contemporaries.

She said: ‘At the People’s Choice Awards, Rihanna smoking came up to me and said: “Brigitte, can I just be you for one day?”

‘I’m like, start off bleaching that hair, girl! I always take it as a compliment I’m very proud of what I’ve accomplished. The ideas and trends that we created through the years influenced so many things.

‘When I did the Herb Ritts shot where I’m covered in fishnet, Cindy Crawford saw it and went: “That’s what I want to do!”

‘Then she copied me. We did some shoots that were absolutely beyond, but to become an icon and make a difference you have to take chances.’

She revealed how hairdressers are scared to cut her hair too, adding: ‘They get so nervous.

‘The last time I changed hairdressers, her hands were shaking. I said: “Calm down. Have a chamomile!’”

Nielsen also spoke about her secret of making a dress look sexy.

She said: ‘A dress looks different on a person who’s sexual. You become the dress and the dress becomes you. My way of being eccentric shows off in the way I wear a dress, and in my choice of dress.’
