Claudia Schiffer, who in the 1990s attained supermodel status, has arrived in the cosmopolitan Greek island of Spetses.
The famous model posted two snapshots on her Instagram account, where she talks about the place where she enjoys her holidays. She is accompanied by her best friend and beautician, Uta Huesch, with whom she was photographed in a floating taxi and in the hotel where they are staying.
Captioning her post, Schiffer wrote, “Nothing like shopping with my best friend.”
Spetses is an upscale affluent island of the Saronic Islands, where production for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery took place in the summer of 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.
The Greek island, which has escaped mass tourism, is the perfect place to enjoy a wonderful walk, as the distinctive architecture, cobble streets, and fragrant gardens packed to the brim with jasmine and bougainvillaea make it a joy to discover on foot.
An unusual aspect of Spetses is that no private cars are allowed within the town limits. The most common modes of transport are walking, horse-drawn carriages, bicycles, mopeds, and motorcycles.
Claudia Schiffer was compared to Brigitte Bardot
53-year-old Claudia Schiffer has appeared on more than 1000 magazine covers and holds the record for the model with the most magazine covers, listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. In 2002, Forbes estimated her net worth to be around US$55 million.
In her early career, the German model was compared to Brigitte Bardot.
Named one of the most beautiful women in the world, her ability to appeal to a global audience assured an internationally successful career spanning over 25 years.
In addition to Elle and Vogue, Schiffer has appeared on the covers of numerous other magazines including Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, and Time, and was the first model to be featured on the covers of Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, and People.
She has appeared in advertising campaigns for Chanel, Versace, Balmain, Giorgio Armani, Karl Lagerfeld and other luxury brands. She also had acting roles including starring opposite Dennis Hopper and Matthew Modine in The Blackout (1997).
She then went on to appear in Friends & Lovers, Black and White (both 1999), In Pursuit, Life Without Dick (both 2001), and Love Actually (2003) in a semi-cameo role.
In 1993, at a Berlin celebrity gala, Schiffer met the American magician David Copperfield when he brought her on stage to participate in a mind-reading act and in his flying illusion, and they became engaged in January 1994.
During this engagement, Schiffer sometimes appeared on stage with Copperfield to act as his special guest assistant in illusions including being levitated, guillotined, and sawn in half. She also appeared alongside Copperfield in David Copperfield: 15 Years of Magic, a 1994 documentary. In September 1999, they announced they had ended their relationship, citing work schedules.
In 1997, Copperfield and Schiffer both sued Paris Match after the magazine claimed their relationship was a sham, that Schiffer “[was] paid for pretending to be Copperfield’s fiancée and [didn’t] even like him”. In 1999, Schiffer won an undisclosed sum and a retraction from Paris Match when a French court ruled that the magazine’s story was false.
Following her break-up with Copperfield, Schiffer had a short relationship with art dealer and Green Shield Stamps heir Tim Jefferies until 2000. On 25 May 2002, she married English film director Matthew Vaughn in Suffolk. Schiffer and Vaughn have a son and two daughters.
