**model of the moment: claudia schiffer



So, in case you haven't heard, the influence of the 90's has come back and is here to say. Trends like minimalist simplicity and grunge are at the forefront of the best Fall 2010 collections, and you can't flip through the pages of Vogue without seeing the 90's supers in numerous ads. Among the models to make a recent comeback is Claudia Schiffer, the 5'11" blonde-haired, blue-eyed German model who was discovered in 1987 at age 17. For someone who initially doubted her modeling potential (she felt sure that the agency had signed her by mistake), she's had an epic career. Notable achievements include working as Karl Lagerfeld's muse, making her runway debut at the Chanel show, and starring in the popular and seductive Guess ad campaigns of the 90's. But her real super power? With a ever-perfect body and flawless skin, it's hard to believe she's now 39! More images below...

Very Brigitte Bardot, no?



90's Gucci... isn't it great?







Her famous Guess ads...







In Vogue Italia, April 2008...





With her kids, so cute!



Keep an eye out for her ads--she's the face of both Chanel and Salvatore Ferragamo for Spring 2010.

Hi Stacey! Love Claudia, she's always been one of my faves! Oh, 90s, please go back where you came from and stay there! I'm sorry, I just wasn't a huge fan of 90s fashion. But maybe I will be inspired by reinterpretations of it! Well, at least models weren't streaking their hair gray back in the 90s, lol! Great blog, I'm a new follower!

There is such a healthy and Bardot-esque quality to her. Isn't it amazing that she (but also other 80s superstar models) are coming back? Looking better than ever!

Remember when Naomi called Claudia a "German cow?" Cow she isn't. Amazing how the 90's supermodels have had such longevity,proving that beauty exists at any age and that a great personality stands the test of time.
