Gotham - - Instagotham - BY SA­MAN­THA YANKS

Septem­ber screams fash­ion in New York City, and nothing screams it louder than mod­els strut­ting their stuff be­tween Fash­ion Week shows. With a new crop of girls on the rise, it’s hard not to look back fondly at the “su­pers”! The ’90s were the height of the su­per- model era, and no one em­bod­ied its supreme, lov­able ex­cess more than Clau­dia Schiffer. The über-model is now be­ing celebrated in a 175-im­age tome from Riz­zoli, ti­tled, ap­pro­pri­ately enough, Clau­dia Schiffer. Page af­ter page, the im­ages show the global im­pact Schiffer had on fash­ion. Born in Ger­many, she trav­eled the world, walked in every ma­jor show from Ver­sace to Gucci, and scored every cov­etable ad cam­paign. Re­mem­ber her as the su­per-sen­sual girl in denim in the racy Guess cam- paign? Here, in an im­age snapped by iconic pho­tog­ra­pher Ellen von Un­werth, Schiffer sells the sex ap­peal she is so well known for in a ca­reer that has spanned more than 30 years.
