Claudia Schiffer didn't party during the 90s when she found fame.
The 43-year-old model insists she was ''innocent'' and didn't really embrace the rock 'n' roll lifestyle like many other models did, and instead she chose to go home after fashion shows.
She told the new UK issue of Marie Claire magazine: ''I didn't really go to the parties - I'd go home after the shows. A lot of bad things can happen at fashion parties, but I wasn't aware of that at the time. I was so innocent. I wasn't aware that people were taking drugs around me and I was never offered anything. And I didn't like the taste of cigarettes or alcohol.''
Although she's doesn't regularly talk to many models from her era, catwalk stars such as Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen and Nadja Auermann, when they do reconnect they can just pick their relationship up from where they left it.
Claudia - who is married to director Matthew Vaughn, with whom she has three children, son Caspar, 10, daughter Clementine, nine, and daughter Cosima, three - added: ''Very occasionally. We're still in contact via e-mail. I might be in LA and e-mail Cindy or see Eva in London. It's very sporadic, but when I see them I can still talk to them and pick up where we left off. That's the kind of bond that I don't think will ever break. Even though there was a large amount of competition, there was also a camaraderie and we knew that we were part of that club that was very special.''
It's time for a riot grrrl revolution.
