It's Claudia Skinnier: Supermodel looks thinner than ever in see-through lace dress on red carpet

Vanishing curves: German supermodel Claudia Schiffer looked gaunt and thin at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of This Must Be The Place

Like many model mothers, Claudia Schiffer would have felt the pressure to lose weight after having a baby.

But as she stepped onto the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival tonight, the German beauty, 40, looked skinnier than ever.

The mother-of-three, who gave birth to baby Cosima a year ago, looked gaunt in a sheer lace Dolce & Gabbana dress at the premiere of This Must Be The Place.

The revealing dress gave onlookers a clear view of her razorsharp collarbone and shoulderblades as she posed for the cameras.

Her modelling agency card gives her statistics as 34-24-36 - making her a UK size 6 (US size 10) - but her slender frame may suggest she's even thinner.

While the 5ft 11 model obviously has to be thin for her job, her super-skinny appearance suggests she may have a bit too much weight.

Too thin: Schiffer's weight loss could be down to breastfeeding her one-year-old daughter Cosima

Schiffer has previously admitted the pounds just fall off her while breastfeeding, but also enlisted a personal trainer to get her back into shape for work following her three pregnancies.

She told Vogue magazine last year: 'Before my pregnancies, I was someone who had to watch their weight.

'I had a personal trainer, I was working out, I would never eat anything sweet. Anyway, I got pregnant and when I was breastfeeding it just came off. I can eat whatever I want. If I don't eat enough, I will lose weight.'

When she leaped to fame in the Nineties alongside fellow supermodels Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista, they were much curvier than what we're used to seeing on the catwalk in 2011.

In an interview five years ago, Schiffer criticised some of her younger contemporaries for being too thin.

She told Germany's Bunte magazine: 'I was one of the fattest when I started.

'Fashion looks good on thin models, but when you look at today's models you cannot help but think there's something wrong.

'They are way too thin. It is only bones that stick out. Models have always been thin, but today, they are even thinner, which is unbelievable.'

Schiffer, who has a son Caspar, eight, and two daughters Clementine, six, and one-year-old Cosima with film-maker husband Matthew Vaughn, started doing pilates last summer to regain her pre-baby figure.

Under the flashbulbs: English socialite Lady Victoria Hervey wore an asymmetrical mini with long train, American model/actress Marisa Berenson opted for a sophisticated black column gown while French actress Clotilde Hesme wore an unusual Maison Martin Margiela creation

Her trainer David Higgins said at the time: 'She's been training with me at my Ten Pilates studio in Notting Hill. After the baby she was coming three times a week, but now she comes here every day. It's really high-intensity Pilates and she loves it, as opposed to the gym, which she absolutely hates.

'Obviously, a huge motivation for her is work: she knows she has to get herself back together. She has one of those amazing bodies that can do anything very quickly; she heals well, she gets the results fantastically quickly.'

Also at tonight's premiere was Rosario Dawson showing off her ample cleavage in a red strapless number and Gwen Stefani, who went for a quirky peep-hole Armani Prive gown.
