The catwalk queen reveals that looking after yourself is the key to being comfortable with your body.
German model Claudia Schiffer [ Images ], who recently turned 40, showed off her curves in a mask and stockings for a photo shoot.
The supermodel, who posed for top celebrity photographer Mario Testino, revealed she works hard at keeping herself trim.
"I feel much healthier at 40 than I did in my 20s," News of the World quoted the mum-of-three as saying.
"As you get older you realise the importance of looking after yourself and not to take things for granted."
"I've met many women who feel the same way and are more comfortable with themselves and their bodies in their 40s than they have ever been," she said.
