“The wonderful thing about Claudia Schiffer is that she has always been Claudia—more beautiful and provocative than any single image or campaign.” 

Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief, US Vogue / Creative Director Condé Nast

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

Karl Lagerfeld

“We all knew pretty quickly that there was something special about Claudia Schiffer. I remember once, Richard Avedon was shooting her, and he murmured, “This girl is a dream.” She seems to have some inner joy and peace, and it emanates from her, like a glow. I think that’s why people have always been drawn to her—everybody wants a little bit of what Claudia has.” 

Donatella Versace

“Taking the photographs of Claudia for the Yves Saint Laurent campaign – high on top of the Hollywood hills, hanging in a harness off the mountain that holds the Hollywood sign – could only be that easy and exhilarating because of her experience, her patience and her dedication to making a (crazy) idea come to life. “

“Claudia really has the presence of a movie star.”

Arthur Elgort

“Seriously, who wasn’t drawn to Claudia during the Supermodel era? I might have been just a kid growing up in Bordeaux but when I saw all the images of her, so beautiful, so strong, I began to understand fashion’s incredible potential to transform and inspire. Still today, its images of Claudia that we often find on the mood boards in my atelier.”

Olivier Rousteing, Creative Director at Balmain

“One of the most intriguing women I have ever photographed. I wish I could make a movie with her.”
