New Yorkers taking a stroll through the city’s Central Park have been greeted by a rather surprising sight: supermodel Claudia Schiffer sprawled across the grass.
|The supermodel lost her footing|
Schiffer turned heads while taking part in a photo shoot for Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld.
The 37-year-old supermodel appeared to fall over while wearing a pair of high heel patent boots, but it was not clear if the tumble was an accident, or all part of the plan.

Aides helped her back on to her feet and she continued with her poses; at one point draping herself over the kerb again.
The veteran model appeared to enjoy her time spent outdoors in the spring sunshine.
Schiffer wore black leggings, a dark wool jacket and a beret for the shoot. She carried a black leather Chanel shoulder bag.
Schiffer is one of the world’s most successful supermodels. She has appeared on more than 500 magazine covers and was estimated to be worth around £38 million in 2002.

Born in Germany, she rose to fame in the 1990s. She was engaged to magician David Copperfield for six years.
In 2002 she married film producer Matthew Vaughan. The couple have two sons and live in London.
