Where has Claudia Schiffer been? She was on over 500 magazine covers, was a world famous supermodel, and then poof -- she disappeared.

Fortunately, however, it appears that she's now back with a vengeance -- and it was worth the wait.

Schiffer not only appears in the August issue of Paris Vogue (sans clothing), she's right there on the cover, looking as good as ever. Obviously, given the fact that nearly every decent-looking photo in magazines seems to be Photoshopped to death, it's probable that the nearly 40-year-old Claudia you'll see on the pages of Vogue isn't exactly like the Claudia you'd meet in real life.

That aside, she looks fantastic -- go Claudia!
