Iman Tells Us Being Comfortable & Aging Gracefully Is Lazy
Sep 08, 2012 - by Samantha Lim
We joined Iman at the Electric Room last night for the launch party of her new website Destination Iman. The absolutely stunning style icon was quick to give us a kick in the pants about how to look as great as she does at age 57 (advice we should all probably take).
"I'm 57 years old, and I've been working in the business for 35 years. To me, aging gracefully is giving up. I say, age chicly. Why do you have to be comfortable all the time? Comfort is for laying around or going to the gym."
So who is the model of the future? Iman says of Coco Rocha, with Coco blushing beside her, "She's going to change what models are going to become: Not powerless."
We love her diva boldness. And she looks damn good, so if trading in comfort for chic is what it takes, that's what we'll do. Fashion royalty in attendance included Simon Doonan, Rachel Zoe, Erin O'Conner, Rachel Roy, Chris Benz, and Paris & Nicki Hilton.
