Allow us to introduce the latest addition to 'The Fashion Show:' the fabulous and fashionable Iman!
The international supermodel and fashion icon has signed on to work alongside the great Isaac Mizrahi as host next season.
Iman began her career in 1975 as a model and has challenged the prevailing notions of beauty ever since. Her first modeling assignment was for Vogue in 1976. She was an instant success in the fashion world, and a muse for fashion designers including Yves. St. Laurent, Versace, Calvin Klein and Donna Karan. During her 14 years as a model, she worked with top photographers Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, Irving Penn and Annie Liebovitz. Currently, Iman is Founder and CEO of IMAN Cosmetics, Skincare and Fragrances, a beauty company that created the first cosmetics and skincare collection designed for all women with skin of color. In addition to running a global beauty company, Iman is actively involved in several charities, including The Children’s Defense Fund, For All Kids Foundation, and Action Against Hunger. In 2006 Iman became the Global Ambassador for KEEP A CHILD ALIVE: (www.keepachildalive.org). She has conceived and is spearheading a national campaign called I AM AFRICAN to help awareness and raise funds for the AIDS pandemic that is ravaging her homeland. She is also the author of two books, I AM IMAN (Universe, 2001), and THE BEAUTY OF COLOR, THE Ultimate Beauty Guide for Skin of Color (Putnam Penguin 2005) She’s revolutionized the way women with skin of color think about beauty.
Iman said, “I am so excited to be joining the Bravo team and to be working again with Isaac Mizrahi, my close friend of many, many years. I am also looking forward to all of the behind-the-scenes excitement and drama that is generated through the creative process of these undiscovered fashion designers. This will certainly be a show any follower of fashion will want to see.”
Wow. We can't wait to see fashion dream team Isaac and Iman in action!
The Fashion Show deserves another round at bat. I'm pleased that Bravo has added Iman. She lends creditibilty that perhaps Kelly lacked. I'm now anticipating the show's return.
i was an avid viewer of project runway Canada and iman ROCKED as a host. this is awesome news, i can't wait to see her on the fashion show!!!
That's all well and good to sign someone of Iman's statue. Unfortunately, The Fashion Show is a mess. The concept, the (lack of) talent, Isaac's poisonality, the judging, etc. were all terrible. It's no Project Runway!
