Her waistline is the envy of many. Claudia Schiffer is one of the most famous German supermodels of the 1990s. She becomes more and more beautiful over the years and, regardless of her age, her look always arouses admiration. Claudia was tall and thin from an early age, so a modeling career was on the cards. But as a child, she did not like her figure.
One day, when Schiffer was a student and visiting a club in Düsseldorf, she met a recruiter from the modeling agency Metropolitan Models. He advised the girl, who had the potential to succeed in the fashion world, to go to Paris.
For a long time, Claudia could not believe in her success. After the first photo shoot, she suffered from impostor syndrome. She thought she was in the wrong place: she entered the sector by chance. However, everything went well. After appearing on the cover of French magazine Elle and her debut at Chanel, she became a muse for Karl Lagerfeld, who compared her to another style icon, Brigitte Bardot.
In the 1990s, Schiffer’s career took on an international dimension. She becomes a star of New York Fashion Week, signs a contract with L’Oréal and becomes the face of the popular Fashion Café. For a long time, Claudia was the highest paid model in the world: in 2000, Forbes magazine estimated her annual income at 9 million dollars.
Schiffer, yesterday and today. Claudia’s appearance has not changed: in the 1990s she became famous for her ideal figure: 90-60-90 with a height of 180 cm and a weight of 60 kg. Since then, she has kept herself in shape by training hard, eating well and living a healthy lifestyle.
The model has often said that the secret to her figure is water and good food. Sweets and fast foods are prohibited. Claudia is always elegant. She rarely wears pants or sneakers. She is often seen in dresses and skirts that reach her knee. She also likes to incorporate colors into her daily wardrobe that match her image. Blue, red and soft pink go well with her blonde hair.
The model prefers to wear low-heeled shoes. She seems more feminine and more comfortable on her feet. Unlike the flamboyant 90s, Claudia Schiffer’s makeup today is sober and nude, with a little eyeliner. The star sticks to her natural hair color and doesn’t try to change her image. She is a real German: orderly and methodical. With such an attitude, it’s no wonder the supermodel was named 2020 “Woman of the Year” by GQ magazine.
