There's a whole line of beauty products named after Helen of Troy. You know she'd be proud.

In an episode of the original Star Trek series called "Elaan of Troyius," the Enterprise transports a beautiful alien woman to the planet of her people's enemies. Sound familiar?

Lucky lady Piper McLean picks out a knife that once belonged to Helen in The Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan.

John Cale (of The Velvet Underground) released an album titled Helen of Troy in 1975. Think she'd approve?
