Claudia Schiffer for GUESS, 2012
Claudia Schiffer for GUESS, 1989
The ultimate proof that Claudia Schiffer’s still the world’s sexiest supermodel? The 30th anniversary GUESS ads that see her reprise her role as the sultry, pillow-lipped Brigitte Bardot lookalike!
You will certainly remember the original ads, shot in 1989 by legendary snapper and longtime GUESS collaborator Ellen Von Unwerth. They launched Schiffer’s career and put GUESS on the fashion map.
The anniversary ads pick up where we last left Claudia, enjoying a weekend getaway in the picturesque village of Sorrento in Italy clad in the label's Fifties-style clothes.
“Claudia exemplifies everything the GUESS woman stands for,” says GUESS CEO Paul Marciano. “Her timeless, distinctive style and infectious energy have kept her at the forefront of fashion for decades. Ellen’s alluring photographs represent a celebratory time for GUESS, as we look back on the past 30 years and look ahead to an exciting future.”
Happy birthday, GUESS!
