STAR QUALITY: Supermodel of yore Helena Christensen will be the star of the Emanuel Ungaro couture show on Wednesday — and then some. The couturier selected the green-eyed beauty for embodying the timeless allure of Ava Gardner. He also tapped Christensen to star in an upcoming couture ad campaign destined for the September issue of Italian Vogue, to be shot by Alex Cayley. And that’s not all — Christensen, a budding photographer, also has been asked to lens a campaign for couture fabrics in the same issue. But the model has not yet booked a model for her shoot.

FRESH FACE: Country Road Australia has a new spokesmodel: Australian actress Sarah Wynter. The 29-year-old, now based in the U.S. and co-star of television’s “24” and films “Bride of The Wind” and “The Sixth Day,” is shooting in far north Queensland and Sydney for CRA’s spring advertising campaign, which is slated to break Oct. 1.

The second in a series called “Young and Free,” the print and outdoor media campaign will cost more than $660,000 (or 1 million Australian dollars). Wynter hasn’t lived in Australia for 12 years and is relatively unknown there. But she seems to be making up for lost time. Although she can no doubt now afford whatever she likes, the actor has been spotted with her mother stocking up in Country Road boutiques. “It’s a sort of childhood dream to have a top-to-toe wardrobe of the brand,” said Wynter on a break. “When I was growing up I couldn’t afford to buy Country Road.”
