Model Chanel Iman’s star is still on the rise. Having finally gotten her Angel wings at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the 20-year-old is starting the new year off in a big way, with a multi-page spread in the February 2011 issue of Elle UK. Featured in the magazine’s biannual editorial, The Collections, Chanel models designer looks from the Spring 2011 fashion season.
Across eighteen pages, nearly every style aesthetic, and every major design house is represented. Chanel gives attitude in Burberry, gets romantic in Dolce & Gabbana, is provocative in Gucci, and goes back to basics in Calvin Klein, and that’s only four looks. There are fourteen others, in which Chanel showcases not only the clothes, but also her versatility as a model.
We also get a glimpse at the girl behind the face, in She’s in Fashion, a two page interview Chanel gives to the magazine. In it, she discusses fashion (of course), how she became interested in modeling, and where she sees her career heading in the future. “Well, if I could collaborate on designing, I would love that. That would make me very happy.”
And when interviewer Luke Crisell asks where she sees herself in five years, she answers, “I don’t know! I just know that I’m going to be successful, that’s all. Whatever I do, it will be amazing.”
