It's truly a good week when it starts out with news this amazing. My favorite model of all time and one of my greatest Style Icons, Iman, will be honored with a Fashion Icon award at the CFDA Awards tonight at Lincoln Center!
Previous winners of the award have included Kate Moss and Sarah Jessica Parker, but this is an amazing honor for black models from every era, a group that has seen much struggle within the fashion industry. The recognition of one of the greatest models and businesswomen of our time is a huge step in the right direction and well-deserved per her impressive body of work. She's a Fashion Icon and a role model that you can have it all, work very hard and still be a class act.
For those who would like to read the spectacular piece on Iman that was published in Friday's New York Times regarding this award and her fantastic career (written beautifully by Teri Agins), please click here.
Bravo, Iman! We look forward to covering what spectacular creation Alexander Wang is reportedly creating for you and please enjoy this amazing reward. ADORE YOU!
