Some would do anything for a dinner with Claudia Schiffer. It was at the end of the 1980s that the world discovered the face of the German blonde, who from the top of her meter 81 poses for the Guess brand in Marilyn jeans. Captivated by its beauty, fashion photographers will tear it apart, as will the designers who will show it off. Her name is thus added to the list of Supermodels, with Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell or even Cindy Crawford. And even today at 50, she has nothing to envy the new generation of models.
If she left the catwalks for several years, Claudia Schiffer still multiplies the covers of magazines, and remains the face of many luxury brands. An intact notoriety for the model, who also always receives funny proposals from fans. Like an Arab prince, who in 2014 offered him a colossal sum of money to … have dinner with him. “He offered to” hire me “to have dinner with him in exchange for 2 million euros,” she confides in Paris Match, on newsstands Thursday, August 27. If she specifies that another top model has accepted this tempting offer, she “declined”. “Me, I have my pride”, she slices.
A beautiful gift signed Balmain for its 50 years
It must be said that at 50 years old, Claudia Schiffer can now do without this kind of proposal. And she prefers by far the magnificent gifts that her loved ones gave her for her birthday on August 25, especially that of Olivier Rousteing. Indeed, the artistic director of the Balmain fashion house has recreated just for her a dress from a 2016 collection. “The original version is green, it was for the Balmain campaign shot by Steven Klein with Naomi and Cindy and for my birthday, Olivier recreated it in this marvelous blue … “, she confided to Vogue. And she did not fail to wear this wonder to blow out her candles.
