Guess may not have the prestige of Chanel or the street cred of Alexander Wang, but man oh man do they ever know how to cast their models. From Anna Nicole Smith to Claudia Schiffer, the denim brand has propelled a stellar group of faces to stardom over the years. And now, they’re taking to the web to find the next Guess Girl to join the pack. Could it be you?
While there’s a lot to be said for living without regrets, there are some things a girl just can’t get over. Like, for instance, turning down the opportunity to have Hemès name a handbag after you. Just ask Claudia Schiffer.
Last night, celebs were scattered across the glove, walking red carpets in New York, Los Angeles, London, and Paris. But, you know, who looked best?
To celebrate Guess‘ 30th anniversary in the business, the company is bringing back one of their original Guess girls for a new campaign.
As slow as August is, it is good for one thing: tons and tons of September issue rollouts. Today we have some international editions that are chock full of supermodels. But which one is best?
Claudia Schiffer is a bona fide supermodel, meaning she is super…well, super. Last month we cooed over her awesome cover for Harper’s Bazaar UK, and this month we can’t stop staring at her delightfully styled Vogue Deutsch cover.
We were thrilled when we unearthed these Claudia Schiffer Chanel ads from the 1990s. Schiffer, who was at the height of her fame at the time, embodies the glamour of the early 90’s with her big hair, fit figure, and pouty lips. These ads are killer, though obviously not as iconic as Marilyn’s flawless No. 5 shot, but still worth looking at, even just to take a trip down the plaid-friendly memory lane of the early 90′s.
Claudia Schiffer is one of our favorite supers, so we get super excited every time she resurfaces. We haven’t seen much of her since last fall when she shot 40 awesome covers for Zeit Magazin, but now she’s back and looking stunning on the July cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK.
If there’s one thing fashion loves to do, it’s push the envelope. And while some of the stories included on this list made the cut due to a deliberately controversial editorial vision (ahem, Terry Richardson), many more made the list by sheer (and often embarrassingly obtuse) accident. But one thing is for sure, these are the stories that kept tongues wagging, traffic spiking, and many publicists very, very busy.
In what we have to imagine is an unprecedented coup, that sparkly gold Balmain dress has landed a seventh cover. Yes, count it: seven. The same dress that Natalia Vodianova infamously wore sans smooth legs is now also on the cover of December’s British Elle, worn by Anne Hathaway. Did we mention this is the dress’s seventh cover appearance? (That’s almost double the amount of covers that appliqued Miu Miu number had!) Like we said, unprecedented.
If you’ve read our humble little site more than once, you’ll know how incensed we get when we see a particularly bad bout of Photoshop tomfoolery. But we saw a post today that made us wonder whether we would feel the same about the process if pictures celebrities were altered to make them look fat instead of rail thin.
In honor of its 40th anniversary, Germany’s Zeit Magazin (which confusingly translates to Time Magazine) decided to shoot 40 different covers starring another 40-year-old German: Claudia Schiffer. The supermodel looks as fabulous as ever, adopting dozens of personas for the shoot — from hippie to prepster, rocker to b-girl, and everything in between.
Paris Fashion Week kicks off today and in honor of the fact that we’re currently at our desks and not getting ready for Carine Roitfeld’s masquerade ball, we thought we’d take a look back at what fashion week looked like in 1993. Behold: Karl Lagerfeld‘s Fall / Winter collection for Chanel, featuring Claudia Schiffer, Karen Mulder, Shalom Harlow, and what we’re pretty sure is Kate Moss‘ runway debut. She looks so adorably serious!
Claudia Schiffer started a four-month break after the birthing and naming her daughter in May. And now, the model says she’s ready to get back in the game. But when you’ve played the game so well and for so long and won so many of its prizes it can get a little boring. Which is why Schiffer wants to start a clothing line.
Admittedly, we don’t look our best when we travel. We generally opt for comfort (read: no heels, please), and more often than not come off the plane looking a little less than fresh (one day we’ll fly first class, we tell ya!). A week or so ago we came across some amazing pictures of Lady Gaga at LAX, and ever since we’ve been thinking a lot about airport fashion.
It’s a well known fact that models are their own breed of humans, with especially elongated limbs, luminescent skin, and arresting features which may vary from doll-like to alien-esque to sex-kittenish and back again. But what’s even more fascinating about these strange, vaunted creatures is that while the originality of their looks is what gets them paid, they have an eery tendency to look, well, strikingly like each other. And so, here are seven sets of long-lost model twins who have us seriously questioning our eyesight when it comes to their remarkable resemblance.
When Karl Lagerfeld’s photo of Claudia Schiffer in blackface emerged with the 60th anniversary issue of Stern Fotographie, we knew there was going to be a backlash. What we didn’t know is that we’d be asked to talk about our opinion — and yours, too — on Headline News. Our senior editor Ruthie Friedlander on what makes the photo so offensive.
Fashion is nothing if not ripe grounds for controversy. Case in point: the backlash brewing over the recently published photos of Claudia Schiffer shot by Karl Lagerfeld two years ago for a Dom Perignon ad campaign. In case you’ve been off somewhere fabulous, the series of photos envision the typically blond-hair-blue-eyed Schiffer as, among other things, Marie Antoinette, a secretary and most questionably… an asian woman and a black woman. Well, now Claudia’s rep has come out in defense of the pictures, saying that they were not intended to be offensive, and were taken out of context.
The 60th anniversary of Stern Fotographie magazine pays tribute to Karl Lagerfeld‘s considerable photography portfolio, though it focuses on his work with muse and supermodel Claudia Schiffer. The issue was published with six different covers, each an image of Schiffer styled in a different theme. There’s Claudia as a Working Girl and Claudia as Marie Antoinette, Claudia as some sort of Stripper in a Cop Costume and Claudia as a Man. And then there’s Claudia as an Asian woman and Claudia as a Black woman.
The suspense was killing us, but new mom Claudia Schiffer has finally revealed that her little girl’s name is Cosima Violet Vaughn Drummond.
