2017 — Claudia at the Versace spring-summer collection show
As in the case of most supermodels, Claudia’s talent was revealed by a purely accidental coincidence: at the age of 17, the future star of the catwalks met a scout of a modeling agency in a nightclub. He managed to persuade Schiffer’s parents to let their daughter go to Paris and give her the opportunity to build a modeling career. Some time later, Claudia was already conquering the covers of glossy magazines with might and main and walked the runway of the Chanel show for the first time.
Today, the star is not as close to the modeling industry as before. The star actively cooperates with the organization UNICEF and is one of its goodwill ambassadors. Schiffer’s style often becomes the subject of criticism by fashion reviewers — in their opinion, recently the celebrity has somewhat launched her wardrobe and excessively ignores the current trend agenda.
But Claudia herself is not offended by these remarks, because at 51 she boasts an ideal figure and excellent skin condition — the beauty is as good as a few decades ago.
