Claudia Schiffer, the German-born, Brigitte Bardot look-a-like, was discovered in a nightclub in 1987. She immediately flew to Paris to pursue modeling, and you know how the story ends. Over the span of her career, Schiffer has covered over 700 fashion glossies, starred in some of the most iconic ad campaigns (Guess and Versace come to mind), and pranced and preened with the pack of '90s supermodels (Linda, Naomi and Christy are just a few).

Since her days as a Guess pin-up girl -- which she reenacted this year, looking as amazing as she did 30 years ago -- she has dated David Copperfield, married film producer Matthew Vaughn, launched a line of cashmere separates, had three children and inspired moms all over the world with her effortless school dropoff style.

To celebrate Schiffer's 42nd birthday on Saturday (August 25th), we've compiled 42 shots of the blonde bombshell looking nothing short of stunning. Vote on all her looks in the slideshow below.
