Claudia Mason
This week on Wynne's World we meet Supermodel, Author and Spokesperson for the American Stroke Association, Claudia Mason. I met Claudia several years ago at an event for my sweet friend Ann Caruso. Aside from her obvious beauty, what stood out immediately about Claudia is her intelligence and warmth and how genuinely interested she is in learning about other people. Claudia has become a dear friend and is someone who always finds a way to brighten your day.

Please describe what you are doing + any philanthropic work that is meaningful to you: Inspirational speaking is what I most love to do. I fully realized this during my book tour for my first published book “Finding the Supermodel in You”. I also enjoy being a spokesperson for the American Stroke Association - helping to spread stroke awareness & prevention is the best kind of giving back. I still enjoy modeling as well.

Who is your fashion icon? Who has been inspiring you lately?: Jane Fonda circa 60s and 70s comes to mind since she’s about more than just fashion. Lauren Bacall/Kate Hepburn for the classics, and Jackie O during the 70s for sure. Today I would say Emmanuelle Alt, the E.I.C. of Vogue Paris.
