She dominated the catwalk during the 1990s, now Claudia Schiffer is proving she's still worthy of supermodel status.
The 37-year-old has stripped off - save for briefs, hold-ups and a feline mask - in a provocative cover shoot for the German edition of Vogue magazine.

Claudia has steadily emerged back on the modelling scene after taking time away to raise her son Caspar, who was born in 2003, and daughter Clementine, who she welcomed a year later.
Late last year she teamed up for a shoot with Chanel style maestro Karl Lagerfeld, who plucked her from obscurity to be the face of brand more than 20 years ago.
The German born star famously declared last year that the new generation of models can no longer achieve the kind of global celebrity she, Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford enjoyed in the 1990s.

She said at the time: "In order to become a supermodel one must be on all the covers all over the world at the same time so that people can recognise the girls.
"That is, for now, not possible, not least because the advertising industry is very much taken nowadays by popstars and actresses. Supermodels like we once were don't exist any more."

In 2002, she married Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels film producer Matthew Vaughn after ending a long term romance with magician David Copperfield.
