’90s supermodel Claudia Schiffer, who has a new photo book out with Rizzoli, claims she wouldn’t have what it takes to succeed in today’s cutthroat industry.

Somehow, the German beauty’s striking 5’11” stature and pouty lips, which lit up her many iconic GUESS ads back in the day, wouldn’t be enough.

“I’m quite a shy, private person,” the 47-year-old stunner told the New York Post.

“The new generation, nowadays, they don’t have a filter — they can just share and share anything at any moment, and I find it quite hard to share more than just certain things,” she added.

“So if I had to do that in the ’90s, I think I would have failed!”

We wholeheartedly disagree.

Claudia is utterly iconic, which was proven when she reappeared alongside fellow ’90s legends Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen and Carla Bruni at the Versace Spring 2018 Show to rapturous applause.

Still, she raises a valid concern. Social media has brought about a climate of indulgent self-promotion, and it’s a shame a future Claudia could be lost in our midst just because she doesn’t brazenly #FreeTheNipple on Instagram every day.
