Do you want to hear Claudia Schiffer’s story? We promise it’s a fun one. And also pretty unbelievable!
Claudia Schiffer was born on August, 25, 1970 in Rheinberg, West Germany. At just 17, young and shy Claudia Schiffer had an encounter with fate. Here’s how it all begun.
Once upon a time… oh, this is not Cinderella’s story. Let me begin again.
One ordinary evening, the Schiffer family was having guests over. Since Claudia was 17 at the time, she was in charge of the fun. The local club in her town was not a good idea, so they’ve decided to go big – partying in Dusseldorf! Claudia was not very happy about this because she has never been to such ‘wild’ nightclubs. She was shy after all. But, she didn’t want to be rude to her guests. So, with a blue shadow on her eyes and blush on her cheeks, Claudia made her debut at the night club. And that is exactly the night when she was discovered by a fashion scout. A fashion scout who also wasn’t supposed to be at the night club that exact night!
That my friends, is what I call fate. Maybe my original beginning ‘Once upon a time’ was just in place. It does sound like another Cinderella story!
Nowadays, Claudia Schiffer is a world-renowned super model, actress and fashion designer. While at the very beginning of her career she was often compared to Brigitte Bardot, today her name is loud enough on its own. She holds the record for being featured on the most magazine covers. Another thing worth mentioning; her net worth is around $60 million.
What exactly made Claudia Schiffer to be so adored by the world? I mean, other than her captivating beauty. One thing is for sure; it is rare to meet someone from the fashion or modeling industry that is as much down to earth as Schiffer is.
At the very beginning of her modeling career, Claudia was surrounded by alcohol, drugs and thousands of vices. But no, she always stuck to peach juice. 30 years later, she still believes that a guardian angel from another planet was sent on earth to look after her. And modeling is what she calls her savior. That is the biggest compliment the modeling industry can receive.
Claudia Schiffer is one of the best examples that life can be just like a movie. Although she is not in the modeling world anymore, there’s not a single person no matter what their age is, that doesn’t know who Claudia mother freaking Schiffer is!
Oh, Donatella Versace, thank you for bringing Claudia home again- on the runway where she belongs. Even if it was just a short visit. Versace’s Spring 2018 show was actually a big, happy reunion. The most epic moment of this year’s Milan Fashion week was when Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Carla Bruni, and Helena Christensen took the runway!
