Style File: Chanel Iman

Not only is she stunningly beautiful, but I find that there is something somewhat intriguing and certainly endearing about Chanel Iman's effervescent but equally demure demeanor.
In a video interview with her that I recently viewed on Vogue Italia this is truly evident.

She seems to possess a natural ability to allure her audience through the rapport that she effortlessly builds with the camera - something that has undoubtedly been well-crafted since the beginning of her career at 12 years old. 

Her billowing success is evident for all to see; one of the most recent examples of this being that she is currently the face of the Spring/Summer 2011 Campaign Advert for the DKNY "Be Delicious" fragrance.

She has graced countless catwalks across the world for several mainstream and major Fashion Houses, namely Marc Jacobs, Ana Sui, Phillp Lim, Valentino, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, John Galliano, Tom Ford, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Hermes, Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, Ralph Lauren, Micheal Kors, Oscar De La Renta, and Givenchy.

Gucci succumbed to her beauty in 2009 and thus she became the first black model in 8 eight years to strut their catwalk.

Her poise and embodiment of glamour and not to mention fabulous style places her firmly  in the category of an emerging supermodel and she certainly has the makings of a style icon.

I have personally taken a liking to Chanel Iman's style because her choices of outfits are almost always typically chic, feminine, glamorous and haute couture and, importantly, suit her body shape well which allows her to carry them off with confidence. 
She displays that she is not afraid to explore various looks and maximise her attributes.
