Claudia Schiffer gave Zeit magazine the ultimate 40th birthday present:
40 different covers for its anniversary issue.
The magazine's editorial director Christoph Amend explained to Bild.de, "We look back on 40 years of life. As Claudia Schiffer is 40 just now, she was our model for the cover." As well as the Zeit shoot, she has been creating her own fashion line. According to WWD, she is set to launch the range with a party next month, although her debut collection won't hit stores until next winter.
The shoot took two days in London and footage can be viewed here.
I have rounded up my favorite covers.
