Chanel Iman

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

With a name that references a famed designer (her mother’s favorite) and a pioneering supermodel, Chanel Iman (nee Chanel Iman Robinson) was born to strut the catwalk. The child of a Korean and African American mother and an African American father, Iman wanted to model since she was a toddler. She even named her dog Louis Dior. From luxury brands like Valentino, Ralph Lauren (whom she considers the most stylish New Yorker) and Botegga Veneta to Gap and H&M, this Victoria’s Secret Angel makes everything look good. When not posing, Iman helps out with the L.A. boutique she opened with her fashion-obsessed mom. As for her personal collection, her shoes are “uncountable” and her closets (yes, plural) are bulging. “Don’t limit yourself,” she advises. “Wear what makes you feel good.”
