During the 1990s, Schiffer appeared as the face for a number of a high-profile fashion campaigns including Guess, Chanel and Mango.

    To me, you are the icon of fashion, THE supermodel par excellence and I just wondered if you also have plans to launch your own branded products one day as I'm sure a lot of people would like to buy your stuff (as other celebs are doing it, is it something you have considered?). And are you expecting a boy, a girl or is it a surprise?

    Do any of the clothese you wore in the 80s and 90s make you cringe these days? Do you have a favourite outfit that youve modeled?

    What do you think of the weight controversy surrounding models now? The super-models of the 1980's were not so tiny and fragile. Do you think models now are too thin?

    Also, what's your advice for aspiring models on how to get into the business and not fall victim to scammers?

    You've always represented GUESS when you appeared in its ads especially the sensual ones for the fragrance. How do you keep up with the supermodel world when the girls are like 18-20 year olds? Any tips on staying gorgeous?

    And did you benefit intellectually when you joined fashion brigade?

    The world views you very positively, and this no doubt, gives you international influence and access. Are there causes about which you feel particularly passionate and that you would like to promote?

    Claudia, you have achieved an iconic status that goes beyond your fame as a model. Did you have a sense that this might happen when you began modeling? Did you start with a master plan for your career? If so, how do your accomplishments, and disappointments, compare to your original plan?

    How do you envision the future of modeling? Will skinny continue to dominate or will designers cater more to the average size woman, in order to help create a better image for girls?

    Guten Abend Frau Schiffer,
    liebe Gruesse aus Berlin! I have so many questions for you, but please let me just list 2. :-))
    1) Karl Lagerfeld is right, and I think so too, you look even more interesting with age. You take very good care of yourself, would you please let me in, a bit, your secrets/dietary habits in keeping looking so youthful and healthy?
    2) Will you let your children consider a stint/career in modelling too?
    I wish you a great pregnancy and many more happy days.
