Claudia Schiffer is back in the game again! After taking a pause after giving birth to her third child, Claudia is now officially back in full power. Her Harper’s Bazaar July 2011 cover (and pictorial) stand proof that she’s one of the supers!
Photographed by Horst Diekgerdes and wearing the much acclaimed Prada Spring Summer 2011 collection (on the subscriber’s cover), Claudia is charmingly fashionable, even with bleached eyebrows. I sometimes wonder what the world would have done without Brigitte Bardot! (Harper’s Bazaar via)
Not sure I would have noticed if you hadn’t pointed it out, but the bleaches eyebrows…. Eeew

The bleached eyebrouws are not that bad but Claudia is so skinny!
The ravages of anorexia make Claudia look sad in the eyes. But kudos to Bazaar for a supermodel cover.
you know, its what i find annoying in fashion. fashion people claim to be creative but they are always recurring to the same topics(Bardot, again and AGAIN and A-G-A-I-N ).
is she anorexic?? never heard about it.
I don’t think being anorexic and being too skinny is the same thing. I don’t find this skinny look attractive especially not when someone gets older.
Not only Bardot; Monroe is another example.
no, definetely not. anorexia is a very complex disease.
it was a genuine question though, maybe she was/is anorexic and I never heard about.
Anyway, I think her thinness looks fine here.
I dont like her, never did. she has those enourmous,gigantic,massive upper eyelids, very very german. it makes people look much older/tired/sleepy.
she said recently there is no amount of money which can make her step on a runway again…mmmm,pleez….I can see already kaiser Karl paying millions for her in 1 or 2 seasons from now. I bet money on it.
Anorexia means no appetite / not eating. Anorexia Nervosa is the medical condition. I just meant a lifetime of not eating properly makes Claudia look unwell – just an observation.
@Lynn it’s a common thing in fashion, especially in the last years, to bleach the eyebrows – it makes the eyes pop. I agree with you, though, it’s not a very aesthetic thing to do.
@ajginger – Monroe, yes! you’re so right! Monroe is another example of how people who don’t have a particular style can be tricked into taking another one’s. Much to our sadness.
And I think skinny and anorexic are two different things. It’s like assuming a curvier person has bulimic tendencies. It’s wrong.
@keiko – you think she’s anorexic, really? I think her job is to look skinny and model-ish, always. If she wouldn’t, then everyone would refer to her as “Claudia Schiffer who used to be a model, is now a stay at home mom to three kids and an accomplished housewife” and that is so dull in fashion standards!
@mdinah – yeah, again, and again! Lara Stone was practically invented because the world needed another Bardot. Funny that you mentioned the eyelids – never thought of her this way!
Oh, I’m with you on betting she’ll walk again for the right designer and right amount of money! Natalia Vodianova said she was out before taking the catwalk again (for Balenciaga, I think…)
My apologies – Starbella is my 12month old daughter’s nickname & I was having an ‘aw shucks’ moment – accidently typing Starbella instead of keiko earlier – she was being so adorable!
Once again – my apologies.
Starbella was you alter ego playing with words, hehehe:-)
congrats for your kid.
kpriss, I only realized the “blanket-like” eyelids here in Germany . its a very common facial characteristic here. I was told it came from the mongolic invasions through Europe in early ages and it was “not diluted”because Germany kept ethnically more homogenous.
(my words: disgusting racist obtuse people who dont like to mix…totally out of topic anyway,sorry)
mdinah may I ask what your nationality is? Not German I suppose? Because that is the most ridiculous thing I read about the Germans in ages!
Further, younger Claudia had a somewhat fuller body I looked at old photos and found very young Claudia almost the same looking as Dutch Doutzen Kroes at 18. And she looks at Denise Richards at that age. Those girls have the same features. Never noticed? I also noticed that Heidi Klum has different eyelids than Claudia and so has my German neighbour.
Chinese have also all the same lids. Or Japanese for that matter? Ever noticed that? South-Americans have often big b*tts.
I believe only the US has the most mixed features because it is a young state; all ancestors are immigrants.
Oh, I am not really a Claudia fan; I think she’s looks mega boring since she got older. And Lara is not really invented she is born like that. Only bleached hair and eyebrows as many girls does. Even Kate Moss looks often like Bardot in certain shoots. Etc.
Oh, almost forgot Georgia Jagger!!!
Yes sure, I told you once: I was born in Brazil , both my parents are europeans.
What is ridiculous and why? the eyelid thing or about germans being obnoxious?
about the eyelid it was said by a forensic anthropologist doctor in a class.I had never heard about that before , either. i guess i still can believe what is taught in university?
Yes, I noticed about the other girls you said, mainly on Heidi, but what the relation with Claudia? They have different backgrounds.I am talking about genetic heritage here.if you look at Claudia’s family pictures you will see what I mean.Yes, chinese and japanese (like mongolians) have THE SAME genetic background thus they share some characteristics.
note that i am not saying all germans have those eyelids. But in my experience is a very common feature(look Gerhard Schroeder and Tv new anchors, just as an example).
it may be unheard of but preposterous is quite a different and strong word.
On being obnoxious ,german people worked hard building their reputation not only throughtout Europe but in America as well( I’m talking about their behaviour when in holidays). I hate to reinforce stereotypes but it is a well known/used expression for them: “germans don’t think out of the box”.Again, its my personal experience and I certainly am open to change my point of view if presented with new facts in my daily life.
LOL! Kpriss, this ain’t certainly not an offense! No way. But -at last- I was managing my subscriptions…..pffttt…shocking how many, never, interesting though…anyway, I found this one too: ;) :)
@keiko – hugs for lil’ Starbella :* she’s always welcome here! We keep a civilized place :P
@ajginger – no, Lara was not invented per se, she was invented as a fashion phenomenon! When Carine highlighted her, she did it using a racier BB cliche. Or so I remember?
Isn’t it liberating to finally say – “hey! fashion people! I had it with your obsession over Marilyn and BB! Grow up already, move on!” I feel so relieved now!
@mdinah – ;) I’m sure the Germans have had their big chunk of sins from the sins tart, but we’re now concentrating on the present and future. It’s very interesting : I’m currently living an authentic nostalgia for my university years? I find lectures fascinating! Not to mention about what you can learn from them!
mdinah, you did not mention in your first post you were aiming at Claudia’s family!! This your sentence: “she has those enourmous,gigantic,massive upper eyelids, very very german”. This is the sentence I replied on. So that’s why I related her to fellow Germans Heidi and my neighbour and so on….sighs….It was not really exactly clear what you meant, am I right?
I shall pay a lot of attention to Angela Merkel eyelids since she’s of late a lot in the news thanks to the wonderful EU! I hardly watch German tv. Or never. I watch German films at times.
Further, I don’t like to stereotype people. Oh yes, I can of course. I can make a long list with stereotypes. But that does not make sense to me since I been often prove very wrong!
kpriss: I wasn’t talking about the historic aversion to germans, I was refering to my daily experience, which unfortunately isn’t good.
Are there nice people in Germany? most certanly and I am pleased at the rare occasions I meet them.They are a minority and they too are ashamed of their compatriots(again, I am refering to the working class and the famous german behaviour when on holidays in foreign countries).
As jinjer didn’t clarify what point of my comment was “the most ridiculous thing she had heard on ages” I am compelled to say it’s a quite rude statement from her, given its based solely on her inexperience.
I brought the subject of the mongolic eyes as a curiosity , as an attempt to show how things apparently so distant are in fact intertwined in some obscure way.It’s the element I found fascinating in fashion.my apologies if sounded pedantic.
Saying my comment was preposterous beyound limits is offensive not only to me but for her as well, because denotes she hadn’t seem much lately, which at the internet age is almost appaling.
if jinjer is still open to conversation , which certainly I am , it will be my pleasure to send the links where she can check that some facts may seem “ridiculous”(sorry, I couldnt control my bitchness here) at first sight but they turn to be really interesting when analyzed in depth.
mdinah, I am not that inexperienced with Germany at all! I have been there often and I know lots of Germans. They are our ‘neighbours’. If I offend you -which was not my intention- therefore I apologise if you can accept that?
But I have never noticed very different behaviour than here in the Netherlands. So perhaps we are very much the same? Or being there short is different? Or we Dutch have changed? That is possible too. We are all one wonderful EU! No, I have not lived in Germany. Only vacations or a long weekend Berlin and that was okay. Even great. Wish I could go again…
As for Germans on holidays? Ever seen certain English or Americans? Or us Dutch? Not me but my fellow Dutch?
And this; I may offend you again when I say that being a working class girl I don’t like it how the working class is classified. I can simply not imagine that all working class people in whatever country are obnoxious and stupid and rude…..I fail to believe that…..sorry…..:(
I was not “aiming at Claudia’s family” specifically. I am talking about a large group of Germans who share one genetic characteristic, massive upper eyelids.Some of them are from the same family , some are not.
Being from different families doesnt mean they don’t share SOME gens.
Im also inclined to desagree that only USA has the most mixed features . If you take a short trip to France, Spain or UK you will see that a wild variety of ethnicities have been merged to form what we actually call spaniards, french or english and if you had ever been in Australia, Brazil or Israel you will see the same.
My point was: throughout history Germans were not open to mix. integration still is an issue here,comparing with other countries where I lived. But I digress…
oh Dutches!! you are much more welcoming than Germans, believe me. I wouldnt even compare.
The very few occasions I had contact with you guys I was surprised by the open mindedness.
About the working class you are twistingmy words. I said the GERMAN working class is rude, I didnt comment on other countries I work too like everybody else. What I meant is that I was shocked by the rudeness of the daily life in Germany. I hadnt had such experience before, not even in Africa ,where people are extremely poor but ,curiously, extremely friendly.
Anyway, apologies accepted. you send me a virtual box of chocolates and PAX, ok? :-)
mdinah, we were once far more open minded as a nation. Of course lots of us still are!! I have been so proud of my country! As I am told often I have “the authentic Celtic look” I often (almost) yelled in foreign countries “I am Dutch!!!”
We have changed too here. If I was able to discuss this with you other than here; I sure would. It saddens me a lot how much my country has changed on a very short notice.
I been often in France, the UK and Ireland. Also Greece, Portugal, Turkey, Denmark and Germany. Austria only in Vienna. Then still Czech-Slovaky right after the Velvet Revolution. Even three days in the former DDR being very young (with a band) and scared as hell for the polizei there….brrrr…I lived for six months in Spain in better times. Never had the pleasure to visit Australia or South-America or the US, Japan and….my wish-list is long. I did notice lots of things in the foreign countries I have been.
But I leave it to this for reasons I wrote above.
Now what is your favorite sort of chocolate? So I am able to send, even virtually, the right ones. Not every chocolate is that good as you know of course. I, as an example prefer very dark chocolate. Not everybody’s taste really.:)
No worries, send me one of your preference. I am sure I will like it.
have a nice day.
I like Claudia Schiffer and I have to say that it is rather nice to see a model on the cover rather than an actor, or a celbutard. :)
Who knows how really slender she is for after all they do “fix” these photos to their “ideal look”.
She looks stellar in that red dress! :)
