Chanel Iman Is “Purrfect” On The Cover Of The New Galore “Women Who Rock” Issue
Chanel Iman looks grrreeeeeaaaattt on the latest cover of Galore.
Slinking around in a Tony The Tiger print bodysuit inside the magazine’s “Women Who Rock” issue, Chanel is catty in the best way possible. Shot by famed photographer Ellen von Unwerth, the Victoria’s Secrets model looks ’70s old-school sexy on the cover, rocking a discoball bodysuit reminiscent of what one would have seen after midnight on the backs of female patrons frequenting Studio 54.
Chanel is in good company in the issue, too. It also features Kate Nash, Andrej Pejic, and Brooke Candy. Inside, she speaks of the women that rock to her. “Beyoncé, Oprah, Michelle Obama, Alicia Keys, Halle Berry,” Chanel says of the women she considers role models. “There’s a lot of women out there who rock who I look up to. I think Ellen [von Unwerth] rocks. It’s my first time working with her but it’s definitely not my last. She’s awesome.”
Considered one of the biggest supermodels in the world, Chanel has been logging long hours from an early age to reach the top. “I’ve been working my ass off!” she exclaims. “I just got back from Mexico shooting for H&M and I just walked in the Jason Wu show at New York Fashion Week. There’s a lot going on and I’m just glad to be working. I was a child model. I started when I was really young. My aunt took me to a modeling agency when I was 12-years-old, and then I moved to New York from LA when I was 15. I’m happy this year. I know what I’m doing and what my goals are. You’ll see a lot coming my way.”
And, while the 22-year-old is focused on a plethora of goals, landing a boyfriend isn’t one of them. “I’m busy and focused right now,” Chanel admits. “I’m not worried about guys. And, if I am worried about guys, it’s a special guy that I’m worried about and he’s the only one who has access of hitting me up and flirting with me.”
