Claudia Schiffer’s Radiant/Relevant Vogue Spain Layout
Posted Sep 01, 2011
I have one word for you – Claudia. In her hey-day that’s all you needed to hear and it would conjure up images just like this amazing editorial, shot by the prolific fashion-photographer – Tom Munro. One of three Cover-Models for Vogue Spain’s September Issue, Claudia Schiffer reminds us why she was able to conquer the world of High-Fashion modeling with a “Bomb-Shell” body.
Dazzling in looks from a variety of designers including, Dolce & Gabbana and Pucci, this 90’s Super-Model could easily fit in with the Lara Stones, Abbey Lee Kershaws & Raquel Zimmermans of today. And that’s what makes this such a stand-out layout. We’ve seen Christie Turlington, Cindy Crawford, and Naomi Campbell reinvent their career as they’ve moved into their 40’s, but they can’t really carry a current editorial. Usually they have “Fashion Stories” created in an effort to promote themselves (or their personal brand), not necessarily the clothes, unless they are the “Face” of a particular brand.
I submit that these pictures could fit among the most fashion-forward of today, with Claudia falling seamlessly into the mix. There’s a world of difference between “Looking amazing for your age”, and looking cutting-edge and natural among a group of girls half your age – with completely different reference points. But the one-time “Face of Guess”, manages to look edgy, chic, and completely Of the Moment. Take a Lesson all you one-time “Super-Models”, it doesn’t matter how hot you look – if you try too hard to look relevant – you probably aren’t. Like everything else in the world, You Either Have it or you Don’t, and Claudia Schiffer still has it!
