She’s an icon in the modeling industry, and as gorgeous as ever.
Claudia Schiffer was snapped at the Hotel d’Evreux during Paris Fashion Week Thursday as she attended a cocktail party for Aquazzura, the label she’s working with on a new line of footwear she’s developed.
The 47-year-old stunner posed for shots with Aquazzura creative director Edgardo Osorio, clad in a mutitextured gown that featured black and see-through patterns on the shoulders, arms, midsection and legs, with an admiral blue pleated pattern across the top and skirt.

The 5ft11 stunner had her textured blonde locks down and an impeccable makeup job, carrying a black studded purse and rounding out her ensemble with black open-toe booties.
The German beauty, speaking to Footwear News on Thursday, explained how her latest creative endeavor came to be after she and Osorio crossed paths ‘through mutual friends’ in London.
Schiffer explained: ‘I had been a huge fan of the brand and have been admiring them from afar,’ noting that she and Osorio quickly realized they complemented one another professionally.
‘It’s interesting to meet someone who has the same ideas you do about fashion,’ she told the outlet. ‘I described something and he knew exactly what I meant. We thought it would be great to do something together.’

The mom-of-three said that her line, composed of eight styles, was ‘inspired by something in my time or in [her] life – whether it’s a school run or a red carpet event.’
The supermodel, who rocketed to fame in the 1990s, described to the outlet her recent runway walk alongside catwalk colleagues Carla Bruni, 49, Naomi Campbell, 47, Cindy Crawford, 51, and Helena Christensen, 48, last week during the Versace show in the City of Lights.
‘It was such an emotional moment because we all worked closely with Gianni Versace,’ she said of the late designer, who was murdered just more than 20 years ago. ‘We lived through such interesting times together and there was a camaraderie that was created.’

She credited the late designer for revolutionizing the industry by welcoming celebrities into the shows.
‘Before Gianni, all the fashion shows used to be just journalists and retailers,’ she told the outlet. ‘Gianni was one of the first people who changed that.
‘Suddenly, you were walking down the runway and it was a spectacle. You walked down on to an Elton John song, and he would be sitting in the front row.’
