After three decades in fashion, Claudia Schiffer releases a collection of images that encapsulate her killer career.
Claudia Schiffer, the epitome of New York supermodel glam in the ’90s, in an image by Ellen von Unwerth, who wrote the foreword to Schiffer’s new book of photos.
September screams fashion in New York City, and nothing screams it louder than models strutting their stuff between Fashion Week shows. With a new crop of girls on the rise, it’s hard not to look back fondly at the “supers”! The ’90s were the height of the supermodel era, and no one embodied its supreme, lovable excess more than Claudia Schiffer. The über-model is now being celebrated in a 175-image tome from Rizzoli, titled, appropriately enough, Claudia Schiffer. Page after page, the images show the global impact Schiffer had on fashion. Born in Germany, she traveled the world, walked in every major show from Versace to Gucci, and scored every covetable ad campaign. Remember her as the super-sensual girl in denim in the racy Guess campaign? Here, in an image snapped by iconic photographer Ellen von Unwerth, Schiffer sells the sex appeal she is so well known for in a career that has spanned more than 30 years.
