Striking Gold with Chanel Iman
A Look at IMG's Superstar

GorgeousChanel Iman has been in the news most recently for dating rapper, A$AP Rocky.  But she has been been making news in elite fashion for much, much longer. The model (or supermodel, rather) has been making steady waves and devoted fans for several years now. The girl with the uniqely fashion name—both Chanel and Iman—is a superstar.

Although born in Atlanta, Chanel hails from LA.  She signed with an agency at 13, and loved the camera. The camera clearly loved her, as she aced the Ford Look of the Year contest and won coveted 3rd place. Of mixed ancestry (both African American and Korean), Chanel has the exotic good looks that fashion was crying out for, Yet, as she spoke of on the Tyra Banks Show there were fews spots for black models like herself and her supermodel peers: Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls,and Arlenis Sosa.

She was the face of DKNY's Golden Delicious perfume and Annie Leibovitz has photographer her. Despite the occasional complaint that she is too slender, she is a Victoria's Secret angel. Chanel is quite willowy but fits in with her Victoria's Secret voluptuous peers. Like her equally beautiful Angel pal Karlie Kloss, she has faced down the anorexic rumors.

No slouch in the political field, Chanel also attended a dinner with President Obama.

Chanel is famous for her refreshing demeanor, her old fashioned polite attitude, and her love of a good meal. Slinking down the runway in Givenchy, or sipping a latte in her casual white tank top, it's impossible to know where she gets her amazing famous body.  Her followers admire her confidence as much as her serene good looks.  Chanel has appeared in Allure, Elle, Marie Claire, and i D.
