Chanel Iman Covers Prestige Magazine

Chanel Iman Covers Prestige Magazine

Chanel Iman cuts a sexy figure in a red silk Marchesa dress on the December 2009 cover of lifestyle magazine, Prestige.

Other pictures include the 19-year-old model with her boyfriend Chris Smith earlier this month at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show in NYC and after-party.

Chanel told Prestige that Chris is a “great guy.” She added, “I look for someone who’s a man, who really knows how to listen and how to learn from his girl. I want someone who cares from his heart about what’s on the inside, not about what’s on the outside… I also skateboard with my boyfriend and we ride around a lot of parks here in the city.”

    She looks georgeous +_+

  • fashionista

    Thank you Jared. More of the REAL supermodels. She’s one of the top 3 supermodels in the world right now and she’s so fun and pretty. More of real supermodels like her on this blog. No more wanna be models like Rihanna, Thanks.

  • LadyB


  • ellie’

    she is so beautiful.. sorry but so super thin…

  • Zoe Moon

    She is incredible. I am so happy that VS realized just how fabulous she is as well and are using her in their brand.

  • dundies

    i don’t know why but she really annoys me blech

  • anne

    please, giver her some food! This is disgusting!!!!!!!

  • Shannon

    I’ve always loved Chanel’s look…..she’s a beautiful model. However, I don’t think she’s right for VS….she’s way too thin and VS is known for having healthy looking girls

  • al

    Wow, she’s a striking girl!

  • **JAMIE**

    i know models are meant to be thin, but i find her too skinny

  • lizzie

    a new supermodel? :)

  • fashion


    I can’t believe you just called Chanel Iman a supermodel. This girl is too arrogant and cocky. A supermodel these days is Daria Werbowy, Natalia Vodianova, Lara Stone. This girl seems to think she’s the new Naomi Campbell.

  • katie

    comments, are just another reason to make jared realize this Chanel iman isnt a celebrity nor is this crap news………. wait weres rihanna

  • katie

    P.s people SNAP OUT OF IT models are supposed to be photoshopped. not everything you see is real

  • Tiffany

    She looks great.

  • um


    maybe she is. from what i understand she was trained to be a model from birth.

  • pratifox

    Love her!

  • creshmore

    Never seen or heard of her before, but a very welcomed change to the normal faces you seen around here. Only a black woman could be that thin and still have a great butt.

  • Emily Love

    She is really beautiful

  • LeviKlein

    She is really beautiful and talented. Too bad she is so cocky.
    I saw an interview on the Tyra Show and she seems to think that she’s the world’s 8th wonder…

  • sofia

    Wow. Is that her real name?

  • Nahla

    Is she really arrogant? From what I see in the comments, she seems to. Ummm she’s indeed pretty but not the prettiest model I have ever seen. I love the fact that she’s 1/4 Asian, and black. Lol Maybe because I’m 1/5 Asian and 1/5 black too LOL. Anyway, I also think she’s too skinny. Okay, models have to be super thin but I don’t like it. Hopefully this stereotype of “beauty’ will change in a near future,. Curvy ladies are so much more gorgeous…..oh well…

  • happy girl

    i thought she was 1/2 asian and 1/2 black. is her mom half asian and half black and her dad black? she definitely inherited more black genes which is the norm when the dad is black….either way, pretty nice mix there. she’s gorgeous.

  • Whoever

    Lovely… Id like 2 see more of her….I think she’s a tad bit overrated…

  • lakers fan in boston

    i also dont think she’s the prettiest model
    i wouldnt call her a supermodel but she’s a rising model
    she has amazing legs, but i honestly rather trade that in for good legs and nice boobs

  • xxx

    Eating disorder alert!!

  • joelle

    she’s too skinny! ew.

  • Girlie

    @sofia: Yes, that is her real name.

    But, whjat’s with these “high fashion” models trying to be sexy Vickie Secret models? I guess they all want to be household names.

    Anyway, VS models used to be sexy when they dealt with only lingerie models. All the high fashion models are too thin to be sexy.

  • Hot Heidi

    Was she the one that was dating sean penn?

  • Shar

    @Hot Heidi:

    No, that was Jessica White.

  • Shar

    @happy girl:

    Chanel’s mother has a black father and a Korean mother, and Chanel father is 100% black. So yes she is only 1/4 Asian from her mom’s side.

  • Stone

    Someone, quick! Give her some food!

  • Becca

    She is PERFECT! If I looked like Chanel Iman, I’d rule the world.

    Wow. She’s ….. just…. stunning.

  • happy girl

    Oh Thanks Shar (above) I get it now. So that makes her a quarter Asian and the rest of her lineage is black. Cool. She is stunning.

  • happy girl

    No Sean Penn dated another woman – who was also a black Victoria Secret model. Her name is Jessica White. I think they are still dating.
