Rocking the Runway
That long neck, exotic accent and copper-toned skin are just few of the measurements that assisted Iman's instant success in the fashion world. Many top designers used her as their new exotic muse, including Gianni Versace, Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, Issey Miyake, Donna Karan and others.
Along her almost two decades of modeling career, Iman posed for some of the world's best photographers during covershoots, photoshoots and other fashion productions. She graced on many magazine covers, and even these days counts as the most successful and popular Somalian model.
