Chanel Iman is an American fashion model born in Atlanta, Georgia, and raised in Los Angeles, California. Chanel has an exotic look which has captivated the eyes of the fashion world since she was a young girl. A gorgeous blend of culture, her mother is half Korean and half African American while her father is African-American.
She began modeling at the tender age of 12 under Ford Models in Los Angeles. Chanel told The New York Times that she has wanted to be a model her entire life, and has worked hard to make this dream a reality. She has worked for top designers across the world such as Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Dior, and Vera Wang, just to name a few. She now stands center stage as a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Personally, Chanel confesses to be a Christian that prays before her meals and before she goes to bed at night. Overall, this young lady has accomplished much in a short period of time in the fashion world. We admire the strides she has taken in such a cut throat industry that has influenced much of my daily life as I skim through my closet each morning.
