FAB Woman Making History: Chanel Iman

27 Feb

Meet Chanel Iman.

Even if you didn’t know her name, you have probably seen her face on TV modeling in The Victoria’s Secret fashion show, or on a magazine at the grocery store, or on the runway modeling for the world’s top designers.

She is currently the most successful African American model, and made history in 2007 as the youngest person to appear on the cover of Vogue. She is also the first black model to walk in a Gucci fashion show for eight years.

The fashion industry is notorious for it’s lack of diversity in high fashion photos and runway shows, and not just with ethnicity. There is still a lot of work to be done in embracing different body types, which she is an advocate for.

She also does her share of charity work, and helps mentor teen girls who are moving from foster care into society.

Now that’s a FAB look!
