Claudia Schiffer shot to fame in the early 90’s as one of the “big six” supermodels alongside Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Kate Moss. Claudia explains that being that famous came with some issues.

Our May cover was made before the current crisis, but we hope original supermodel @claudiaschiffer will offer a moment of joy and distraction. A fashion player for 30 years, now at 49, she reflects on making waves in the nineties and her plans for the future.

She told Elle U.K. that she had security because people would constantly steal her bras and knickers by cutting holes in the fashion tents. Schiffer tells the fashion magazine, when I was out on the runway I’d come back and constantly my underwear would be gone – my bra, my knickers … gone!”
Now at the age of 49, Claudia says that she’s older and no longer dealing with the chaos and attention. Claudia is on the cover of Elle UK and explains that “you don’t have to be called beautiful your entire life.”
Adding, “It’s a nice memory, but then the next generation starts and you hand over.”
