CLAUDIA Schiffer has revealed that at the height of her fame she needed security to guard her underwear.

The 1990s supermodel said: “When I was out on the runway I’d come back and constantly my underwear would be gone — my bra, my knickers . . . gone!”

The catwalk star added: “You couldn’t get to your car unless a path was carved for you. People would cut holes in the fashion tents and try to take pictures of us. We had security at every fashion show.”

The UK-based German said she has no concerns about ageing now she is 49, saying: “I’ve had many wonderful compliments in my time. But then you get to the next stage and you move on.

“You don’t have to be called (beautiful) your entire life. It’s a nice memory, but then the next generation starts and you hand over. For me, it’s a natural thing to do … to hand over, to not be envious or jealous.

“As a matter of fact, I can’t think of anything worse right now than if you said ‘There’s a magic pill and it’s going to make you look 20 again’.”
