Did Someone Just Say Iman?

By Cgajid @cgajid

We at Vinchi are just loving our fashion icons, I personally cannot stop writing about them! But let's be honest it can never get boring reading about the most famous people in the world of fashion as we know it today... So yeah, Iman Mohamed abdulmajid sprung to mind, let's just call her iman cause that name is a keyboard full!
Did Someone Just Say Iman?
this hot piece of chocolate trifle was born July 25th 1955, and did you know Iman actually means 'faith' in Arabic? And hell, we have A LOT of faith in her! She is a Somali-American fashion model, actress and entrepreneur, you'd think all of those jobs would be hard to juggle? Not for this lady as she is one of the most famous faces in fashion history; along with many others we are always going on about :). Iman even is a pioneer in the field of ethnic cosmetics and is also highly recognised for her charitable work such as being the spokesperson for 'Keep a Child Alive'  and serving as an ambassador for Save The Children. And to top that all of she is married to David Bowie! Score!

Whilst Iman was still at university, she was discovered by an American photographer, Pete Beard, and was quick to move to the United States to launch her modeling career, sounds like a good move to me! And she was that damn good that her FIRST modeling assignment was for Vogue in 1976. Shortly after this she soon landed some of the most prestigious magazine covers, thus, being established as a supermodel.
With her long neck, thin frame, fine features, naturally straight hair which every girl would die for, copper toned skin and exotic accent Iman was an istant success in the world of fashion, are you surprised? Didn't think so. I bet you can also believe that she became a muse for many prominent designers including Gianni Versace, Calvin Klein, Issey Miyake and Yves Saint-Laurent.
