Iman discusses her theory on accessories, her favorite pieces, and sending Eduardo home.

Bravo: This week's episode was inspired by accessories. Do you have any super special pieces you love to wear? Anything really special you've worn in the past that springs to mind?

Iman: Philip Treacy hats. Years ago I presented an award to him at Fashion Group International and he created this fab hat for me to wear that was the epitome of "eccentric" glamor.

Bravo: Do you believe in the Chanel adage to always take one item off, or do you think sometimes, for an eccentric look more can be more?

Iman: Definitely more can be more, sometimes, but you have to have a sure hand and the confidence to commit to wearing an outfit however outrageous...think of Daphne Guinness.

Bravo: We're obviously huge fans of Simon Doonan's here, and remembered this lovely window display he made on you last year in celebration of your 2010 CFDA Fashion Icon Award. Tell us a bit about how it was working with him again on this episode, and what he brought to the table?

Iman: I adore Simon, and the genius that he is we thought he would make a great judge and we were so lucky as he inspired the designers so much that they have created their best looks so far. He thinks out of the box and inspired the designers to think the same way. And by giving them the permission to do so it elevated their game, which was definitely a game changer.
