Ladybrille Magazine has come to be associated with features of some of the most successful, inspiring personalities of African descent, and March 2011 is no exception. Iman is one of the world’s most successful supermodels to date, with a modelling career spanning well over two decades. She is also a beauty mogul who sits at the head of Iman Cosmetics, a leading cosmetic and beauty line for women of color. In 2010, Iman was honored by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) as a fashion icon, and in February 2011, the Black Entertainment Television (BET) also honored Iman with a service award for her global effort to end violence against women.
In this edition of Ladybrille Magazine, the March 2011 Spring Fashion Edition the supermodel and entrepreneur is honored as the Woman of the Month. Editor-in-Chief of Ladybrille Magazine Uduak Oduok said, “Iman’s accomplishments and contributions, from IMAN Cosmetics to her humanitarian efforts, are worth celebrating for more than one month. We are honored, especially as the leading voice for Africa’s fashion and entertainment stories in the West, that she accepted our invitation to celebrate her this month.”
Iman’s interview will be published on the magazine’s website at www.ladybrillemag.com on Monday March 7th, 2011.
“I am honored to be featured as Ladybrille’s Woman of the Month,” said Iman. “It means so much to be recognized not just as a successful business woman, but because I have become so by creating a company that helps women all over the world to feel beautiful. I am inspired every day by the work that I do and feel very lucky. I am proud to say that creating IMAN Cosmetics will be what I will be remembered most for and will be my enduring legacy.”
