Iconic Beauty: Iman

Long before she became known by one-name,  founded a successful cosmetics company; campaigned and fundraised for African causes; starred in multiple movies; became a mother; wrote a couple books AND married David Bowie, she was Iman Mohamed Abdulmajid.  The American photographer Peter Beard discovered her in the 70’s as a young student attending the University of Nairobi , and with her elegant, sculptural beauty—the impossibly long neck, the regal features, those cheekbones—she was an instant favorite among editors and designers.   Some would say she is THE Supermodel.  I would agree…


Appearing in an ad with Jerry Hall.

With Calvin Klein in the early 80’s.


In her role as Mariammo in “Out of Africa”.

I can’t believe she’s 56.  She just doesn’t age.
