MODEL PROFILE: CHANEL IMAN
Chanel Iman hails from Los Angeles who has not one, but two fashion influenced names. The 17 year old first got noticed at the Ford Supermodel Of The Year contest and in six months the newcomer graced fashion runways around the world. There has been a huge buzz about Chanel over the past year. She graced the cover of Vogue Magazine's Models of 2007. Chanel's mother named her after her favorite fashion house Chanel. With the name Chanel Iman she is definitely on the fast track to supermodel stardom. Here is what Chanel has said about her goals in the fashion business:
"I want to go all the way," she says of her career ambitions. "My goal is to be a household name, and when I do that, I want to help other girls become models, and maybe even launch a fashion line with my mom, like Beyoncé did with her mother. My mom has such a good eye," she says, "and it's always been a dream of hers. I'd love to be able to do that for her."
