“I’m very lucky to love what I do and be able to pick and choose my partners. I also believe age should be celebrated and revered. There’s a reason we have cakes and parties on our birthdays, and I feel the same way about getting older each year. I am so happy to be turning 50 and have never felt more confident or happy in my life. I don’t try to look or feel younger, I embrace now,” she says on her website.

Claudia has an exhibition planned in Germany next year that showcases photographers from her prime modelling years.

“I’m curating an exhibition on 90s photography at the Kunstpalast Dusseldorf Museum in March 2021, which will include a host of incredible photographers form Helmut Newton to Herb Ritis. I'm really looking forward to that.”
