*Model Spotlight (Chanel Iman)
19 July 2010
Name: Chanel Iman
Age: 21
Height: 5'9"
Race: African American, Korean
Agency: Ford Models

Click for Chanel Iman in [Vogue Germany]This right here is my muse =] If you're into fashion or have even looked at a fashion magazine recently then I know you must have seen this girl or heard her name. What sets her apart is that she has the look of the girl next door and a high fashion runway model all in one complete package known as Chanel Iman. With a name like that, this girl's got a lot to amount to and she definitely has proved she's worthy of it all. She along with Jourdan Dunn, Arlenis Sosa, and Sessilee Lopez bring a breath of fresh air to the fashion world and a heavy dose of fierceness as well.

Ever since I've started a blog, I've been meaning to post this picture of all four girls on the cover of I.D. magazine's "Pretty Young Things" issue. This along with Vogue Italia's "Black Issue" marked a very pivotal and inspiring moment in fashion, though often overlooked, because women of color are featured on the cover and have an extensive spread inside the magazine as well. Women of color still carry the burden of breaking down walls in the fashion industry and these young models have certainly contributed to that feat. Great job girls !
