Claudia Schiffer Dishes on Her Career and Karl LagerfeldFeb 24, 2010 @ 11:00 am
In Fashionair.com’s new Supermodel video series, Claudia Schiffer curls up on a couch and dishes on her journey to stardom—which started at a nightclub in her hometown of Dusseldorf. “If I hadn’t gotten discovered at that nightclub, I wouldn’t have become a model. I didn’t think that would be an option for me,” Schiffer said. Her introduction to Karl Lagerfeld was another career-making moment: “I was so scared to meet him because I had such respect and admiration for him. But he was so lovely and generous.” Lagerfeld then asked the German beauty to walk in the Chanel Haute Couture show in 1990, and the rest, as they say, is history.
