So, it's true what they say: Iman is pretty damn flawless. I can hardly believe it took so long to meet her in person, but I can genuinely say that I was delighted (and I'm not just saying that because she complimented me on my RACHEL Rachel Roy dress!)
I met her in her office, smack dab in the middle of Manhattan's Garment District, where she walked me through some of the latest from her IMAN Global Chic collection for HSN. I was very pleased at how forthcoming she was about her collection and why she did it. She did not strike me as just another celebrity who puts their name on crap they would never been seen wearing in public. She was wearing a few of the pieces from her collection of course, but it wasn't very far-fetched - she was also wearing a $100 jacket from Zara! You've gotta love a woman who can go from couture to... anything she wants!
"Fashion is difficult," Iman told me as she explained the difficulty of obtaining quality fabrics in large quantities for a reasonable price. "I wanted to do something for everybody, affordable and chic, so that is why I chose accessories. It doesn't matter if you are a size 6 or a size 16, you can wear any beautiful bracelet or great shoes."
