OMG. Supermodel Iman is celebrating a landmark birthday today: she’s 60. As in the big 6-0. These pictures, in case you were curious, was taking last winter, in February 2015. The model, who’s from Somalia, is considered the first Black model who became a “supermodel,” paving the way for other women of color to pursue modeling careers. As you can see, yes, she still looks AMAZING.
Iman talked about her age recently.
I do feel that my next step will be focused specifically on my age group. I think there is a blind way that America thinks about youth, and that needs to change. Everything happens out of your own experience. And, let me tell you, a lot is happening to me now. I can never be 20 or 30 [again] and I wouldn’t want to be. I’m almost 60 and I would love to change the way people view 60.”
I agree. Life does NOT end at 40 or 60! Somethings tells me we’ll come to appreciate this more as the baby boomers become senior citizens and continue to lead full, active lives. Iman is simply leading the charge!
Cara Delevingne wished Iman a Happy Birthday with an incredible throwback picture.
I hope Iman’s having an incredible day. Happy Birthday!
