Claudia Schiffer was discovered on the pages of Guess 23 years ago. The super model, now 41, returns to Guess to celebrate the company’s 30th anniversary.
The Huffington Post reports that Schiffer modeled in six campaigns between 1989 and 1991 for Guess with photographer Ellen von Unwerth. Unerth also returned to celebrate Guess’ 30th anniversary by photographing Schiffer once again.
Guess CEO Paul Marciano toldWomen’s Wear Daily that the sexy black and white spread in 1989, had a huge impact on Guess, Schiffer, and photographer Ellen von Unwerth.
Marciano said:”[Schiffer] was a turning point of Guess, she was a turning point of Ellen’s career, Guess was a turning point of a life for Claudia… It made her career in my view, and that made Guess a different company. Everybody talked about the Guess Girl.”
Twenty three years later and people are still talking about that Guess girl. Claudia Schiffer, who was just 17 when she first started modeling for Guess, was a household name in the 1990s, has appeared on over 700 magazine covers, and had an estimated worth of $55 million in 2002. She’s also made appearances in movies like “Love Actually” and “Zoolander.”
“Shooting the Guess 30th anniversary campaign was like going back in time. It brought back so many great memories and has been a lot of fun working together again with Ellen and Paul.”
The Daily Mail reports that the “30 Sexy Years” campaign will feature several more models who have previously modeled for Guess.
Here are some of the new, and old, photos of Claudia Schiffer for Guess.
