Claudia Schiffer is a German fashion model and was one of the set of five models first referred to as "supermodels." This group also included Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, and Linda Evangelista.
Schiffer was born in Rheinberg, Germany in 1970, and rose to global popularity in the 1990s after being discovered in a Düsseldorf dance club. She was subsequently tagged for major advertising campaigns for Guess? Jeans, Revlon, Chanel, and H&M.
She was famously engaged to illusionist David Copperfield for several years, but they never married. She eventually married Matthew Vaughn, a film producer, on May 25, 2002, with whom she has a son and daughter born in 2003 and 2004, respectively.
