This stunning book, curated by Schiffer herself, is a highly personal collection of her favorite fashion moments and a tour-de-force of beauty, tracing her work from übermodel to muse to modern-day icon, as captured by the greatest photographers the fashion industry has known: Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Arthur Elgort, Steven Klein, Peter Lindbergh, Steven Meisel, Herb Ritts, Francesco Scavullo, Mario Testino, Ellen von Unwerth, and many more.

Like Kate: The Kate Moss Book and Becoming, by Cindy Crawford, this visually sumptuous book features the greatest hits of this supermodel and global fashion and beauty icon. From her role as the face of Chanel to her appearance on a thousand magazine covers, Schiffer remains the eternal blonde.

Reviews

  • "Claudia Schiffer, naked and coming to a coffee table near you. To mark the  30th anniversary of the German super-model’s career — she was discovered in a Düsseldorf disco at age 17 — Rizzoli is putting out “Claudia Schiffer” by Schiffer, a collection of her favorite fashion moments to be published in October. The cover image is Schiffer in the buff and bathed in ethereal light, shot by Mario Testino for Vogue Paris in 2007, and the book features photos by Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Arthur Elgort, Steven Klein, Peter Lindbergh, Steven Meisel, Herb Ritts, Francesco Scavullo, Mario Testino and Ellen von Unwerth, who also wrote the foreword."

    “I met Claudia in 1989 when she was a 19 year-old model who just started working. Our very first shoot together was for the German edition of ELLE. At first I perceived a healthy German girl with a killer smile. After shooting her I realised she had a great resemblance to Brigitte Bardot. As I love to play and have models get into character, so I created that Bardot-esque look for her.”
    — Ellen Von Unwerth

    “When Claudia first appeared on the fashion scene it was like sunrise—and the sun is still shining.”
    — Karl Lagerfeld

    “When I first met Claudia, I recognized something of myself in her professionalism and as the years passed, we were able to connect as two women who took the job of modeling seriously, but also love being creative and working in front of the camera. I’ve enjoyed watching her grow and evolve over the years and find her to be one of those women who just gets better with age.”
    — Cindy Crawford

    “One of the most intriguing women I have ever photographed. I wish I could make a movie with her. She is unexplainable.”
    — Steven Klein
