[Monday Models] Chanel Iman

Some people are simply born to model. In my opinion, that is the case with Chanel Iman.

With Korean and African American ancestry, Chanel Iman embodies beauty and sexy. She has been modelling professionally since the age of 13 (with Ford Models) and even won 3rd place at the Ford Supermodel of the World contest in 2006 at age 15.  The contest showcases young fashion model entrants from over 50 countries in order to discover new talent for the fashion industry.

Now, top fashion designers and brands seek her out every year since she is really one of the few wildly successful African American models.

She's been surprisingly active in fundraising and charity work, first assisting in the USAID and Ad Council's FWD campaign in 2011. Along with this campaign, she co-hosted a Runway to Win fundraising event in Chicago, put together by Anna Wintour of American Vogue. Recently she participated in Michael Kors #WatchHungerStop campaign in 2013.

She also played an active part in Barack Obama's 2012 campaign, helping to fundraise and attending celebrity events in his honor.

Here's what Miss Chanel has been up to lately...
