Somali-American fashion model, actress and entrepreneur , Iman Abdulmaji, had her life changed drastically when she was just 20, an undergraduate student in a Kenyan University studying political science and living as a refugee in her home town when American photographer Peter Beard approached her. She subsequently moved to the United States to begin a modeling career. Her first modeling assignment was for Vogue a year later in 1976. She soon landed some of the most prestigious magazine covers, establishing herself as a supermodel.
But even decades after her discovery, Iman continues to mystify with her youthful glow and wrinkle-free complexion. The former catwalk queen, who celebrated her 60th birthday in July, told Yahoo Beauty that her trick to looking young was to embrace an extra few pounds.
I keep on 5 to 10 pounds above my jeans weight, as the ultimate no-filler-needed refresher, and buy a size up on jeans,’ the beautiful wife of David Bowie told Yahoo.
Iman added that she felt no desire to compete with her former shape: ‘I don’t need to fit in my jeans that I wore in my 20s!’
During her interview, the beauty also promoted her makeup line Iman Cosmetics, a product described on its Facebook page as being produced for women of ‘many races, cultures and ethnicity with skin tones in a myriad of shades.’
