Claudia Schiffer in “Versace”

Supermodel/actress Claudia Schiffer, poses for the Versace spring-summer 2024 campaign, photographed by Mert Alas:

"...from becoming Karl Lagerfeld’s muse to landing multimillion-dollar beauty contracts, and a place in history as the model with the most magazine covers ever, German supermodel Schiffer is legendary both in terms of accomplishments and longevity.

"She has appeared on more than one thousand magazine covers and listed in the 'Guinness Book of World Records.'.."

Schiffer aspired to become a lawyer, working in her father's law firm. But at age 17, she was spotted in a nightclub in Düsseldorf by a talent agent and subsequently signed to Elite Model Management. 

Following high school, Schiffer flew to Paris for a trial photo shoot and soon appeared on the cover of "Elle". She eventually married film director Matthew Vaughn in Suffolk, UK and together they have three children.

"Quentin Tarantino asked me to work with him," said Schiffer. "But there is no way I am going to do that while Matthew Vaughn is working in film..."
