Claudia Schiffer is the german bombshell of the 90s and she definitely holds a special place in my heart. She’s one of my favorite supermodels and was one of the queens at the time that supermodels ran the world. Fashion hasn’t been the same since she and her gang left the scene, and I will stand by that. But she has always been an icon. She’s signed with d'management group in Milan, Marilyn in Paris, Elite Copenhagen, and CAA in New York and London.
She's also done like a million magazine covers and campaigns but nothing compares to her Chanel shows. And thanks to legend, Karl Lagerfield, she was the face of their brand. She always had the best smile and was always the girl to open and close the shows. And when anyone mentions the Chanel bride, I only think of Claudia.
Claudia and Karl were definitely the perfect pair and she told W Magazine “Karl was my magic dust; he transformed me from a shy German girl into a supermodel. He taught me about fashion, style, and survival in the fashion business. I will be eternally grateful to him. He is the only person who could make black and white colorful. What Andy Warhol was to art, Karl Lagerfeld was to fashion.”
Claudia also revealed in an interview that her favorite Chanel bag was the classic Chanel Flap Bag. It's a super classic and chic bag that really demonstrates Claudia’s young yet elegant style. She also has the most luscious hair ever and I need her routine ASAP.
But back to my point, Claudia was a God on the Chanel runways and everyone knows it. When she was working, that's when Chanel was in its prime and it's obvious why. They had that young and playful style that was still super feminine and classy with its tweed blazers and iconic bags. This chicness that Karl presented played really well with Claudia and it was noticeable by everyone.
