Congratulations to Chanel Iman! It has just been announced that she will be joining the ranks of Heidi Klum and Doutzen Kroes as a Victoria's Secret angel!
Everyone in the (high) fashion world seems upset over this, and I'm not exactly sure why. Yes, Iman is a fantastic high fashion model. She's been in every magazine, on every cover, and for good reason. But she's also a seasoned veteran of the shows. Each year, she walks for everyone. She can continue to stay in the realm of high fashion and also have lucrative contracts for someone like VS, I think. Especially since her being chosen is an extremely good thing for fashion, in general. How many African American angels are there? How many can you name? Exactly.
You all know I am a huge Chanel Iman fan, but I also admire Jourdan Dunn (far left). I was delighted by the fact that theyre both on the cover of TeenVogue's November issue. Despite rumours of a tiff between them, I want this issue. If you bought it, please lend it to me. I couldn't justify the purchase given the rest of the trash inside that magazine (not my demographic). Last thing I'll mention is how hard these girls work. Not only is Chanel busy with all of the aforementioned and more, but Jourdan walked some shows this year, and she is 5 months pregnant.
