Beauty Icon: Iman

By Glinda

Iman Mohamed Abdulmajid, or Iman to you, is a Somali-born model.  It took Wikipedia for me to find that her father was a former Somali ambassador to Saudi Arabia and her mother was a doctor.  She was discovered by a fashion photographer while attending university in Kenya.  The rest, as the saying goes, is history.

Iman is on my personal list of the five most beautiful women I’ve ever seen. 

Aside from her gorgeousness, she is an accomplished businesswoman who founded her own makeup line, and is well known for her charity work on behalf of her native country and the Children’s Defense Fund. 

Oh yeah, and she’s married to some singer.  David whatshisface.

    We aspire to her elegance.

    And old whatshisface has shown some serious chops in the make-up department, back before we knew he had facial hair. They have a lot in common. It would be interesting to compare some of their more striking looks.

    That’s some singer, all right. And they’ve been together quite a while!

    She’s always been strikingly beautiful and elegant.
