Claudia Schiffer

photography by ELLEN VON UNWERTH
art direction by OLIVIER ZAHM


After more than five hundred magazine covers, after modeling for all the major designers, after stamping her mark on the entire spectrum of fashion, Claudia is freer than ever. And her experience gives her beauty new license to once again electrify the fashion world.

Ellen von Unwerth, the German photographer who discovered Claudia twenty years ago, captures the super model in a house from the seventies, that most purple of decades, then sets her free in its esoteric English garden and tangled trails.

In this rapturous setting Claudia reincarnates the siren Brigitte Bardot who once so bewitched Gainsbourg: a woman with no need of high heels and arifice, a woman whose dazzling power springs from her own mythology, a woman who seduces you into a labyrinth of dreams you may lose yourself into.
