was discovered in a nightclub in October 1987 in Dusseldorf.
She was spotted on the dancefloor by Michel Levaton, director
of the Metropolitan model agency. Claudia is one of the world's
top sex symbols, having appeared on the covers of hundreds of
magazines. She now endorses such products as L'Oreal, Joop and
Victoria's Secret. Claudia has also had parts in numerous movies.Claudia
Schiffer is one of the original supermodels of the early 1990s.
She gained her popularity and worldwide recognition among men
(and women) by appearing in sexy Guess? advertisements in early
1989 and her sultry looks have boosted her recognition internationally.
Born on August 25th 1970, Claudia was raised in Dusseldorf,
Germany to a homemaker mom and lawyer dad. As a child growing
up, Claudia did not wish to become a model, rather she wanted
to be a lawyer and work in her father's successful law firm.
Claudia's aspirations of becoming a successful attorney came
to a halt when she went to a nightclub for a night on the town
with her friends in October 1987. A modeling agent, Michel Levaton,
spotted Claudia and was instantly taken with her. Claudia inevitably
flew off to Paris for her first test shoot and indubitably,
a star was born. Claudia's initial emergence came from the popular
cover shot for Elle magazine. Claudia began receiving unbelievable
recognition by magazines in Europe and was later selected to
be the new Guess? girl in 1989. All the while that she was fulfilling
her Guess? ad campaign duties, Claudia managed to appear on
five magazine covers in the United States and seven in Europe.
At 5'11" with long, flowing blonde hair and piercing blue eyes,
she has appeared on over five hundred magazine covers and her
annual calendar is always one of the hottest selling items around.
She has made many television appearances throughout her successful
career on shows such as Larry King Live, The Tonight Show, The
Late Show with David Letterman, and Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
Besides her television stints, Claudia has also appeared in
a number of feature films including the most recent, Black &
White (2000), which starred everyone from Mike Tyson to Robert
Downey Jr. Claudia has even made a personal exercise video and
is also quite the entrepreneur, considering she was one of the
original founders of the trendy Fashion Cafe (with fellow supermodels
Elle MacPherson, Christy Turlington, and Naomi Campbell,). As
for her hobbies, Claudia likes to ride horses, paint, play tennis,
read, ski, and dance. As well, this beauty is also fluently
trilingual - she speaks German, French and English. Claudia
remains one of the top five supermodels in the modelling industry
today. She signed a four-year contract with Revlon cosmetics
worth $6 million. Unfortunately for us, the contract states
that she can't pose nude during that time. Claudia certainly
hopes to continue modeling well into the new millennium. She
would also like to make the transition and become a respected,
successful actress and later on hopes to raise a family of her
own. Trivia Supermodel Owns the chain of Fashion Cafe restaruants
