Model Watch: Chanel Iman

Chanel Iman. With a name like that, you are destined to be a fashion model. This 17-year-old from Southern California is the youngest girl to be featured on the cover of Vogue Magazine.  That is an amazing feat at any age.

The story is that Chanel innocently winked into the crowd at one of the fashion shows and it “happened” to be Anna Wintour whom she gazed towards. Anna then hails this young woman to be the next “it” girl in modeling and the rest is history. Aw, the powers of Anna!

I love seeing more women of color on the catwalks. Even though she is only a quarter Korean, it is nice to see some part of my heritage in mainstream media.
