Iman Gets Candid in Interview + Iman on being part of ‘The Fashion Show’ (Video)

Iman is gorgeous!!! How does she look so good at 55?!  Iman gets candid in an interview with OMG! She talks about her love affair with hair extensions, fashion designers she admires, and even a time when she treated another model cruelly.

Here are some excerpts from her recent interview with OMG!:

SD: Have you ever thrown a cell phone at anyone?

Iman: No! And if anyone threw one at me, it would come right back at them like a boomerang. If I feel frustrated in a situation, I take a deep breath and walk away.

Iman gets real…

SD: You seem like an optimist and a positive force, but you must have done something appalling in your past.

Iman: I was once very rude to a young model. Just before I retired from modeling, I was at this shoot. The photographer said he was reading a biography of Marie Antoinette. The young model asked us, “What agency is she with?” [Shrieks of derisive laughter] We made fun of her, of course! When we were leaving, she said to me, “I hope I look as good as you when I’m your age,” and I said, “Don’t worry, darling, you won’t.” And then later I felt bad.

Iman talks extensions….

SD: How many falls and wiglets do you own?

Iman: Millions! I believe in glamour. I am in favor of a little vanity. I don’t rely on just my genes. Looking good is a commitment to yourself and to others. Wigs, killer heels, Pilates, even fillers — whatever works for you, honey.

Iman’s fashion beef….

SD: Who have you ever had homicidal feelings toward in the fashion business?

Iman: Geoffrey Beene! I loved his clothes but not him. Years ago, we were about to walk the runway and he pushed me. I said, “Don’t do that!” “You work for me!” he said, and I replied, “No, you’ve hired my services, dear. I don’t work for you,” and I left.

Iman’s fashion picks…

SD: Who is your favorite young designer these days?

Iman: Alexander Wang is one of my favorites. But he is like my daughter. He is like 12.

SD: I heard rumors that you are doing a home collection.

Iman: When I stopped modeling in ’89, I got really into decor. Our home is very eclectic. My collection,Iman Home, is launching fabrics first. I made myself a turban out of one fabric.  Read the Whole Interview Here
