Somalian supermodel Iman was honoured at the BET Honors event which took place in Washington DC on Saturday 15th of January 2011. 55 Year Old Iman is still a stunner! She stole the show in a floor-length pleated J. Mendel Spring 2011 dress.

Iman was honoured for her charitable endeavours, including her work as a celebrity spokesperson for the Keep A Child Alive Foundation. Iman has supported various charities over the last two decades. Areas of focus include AIDS, World Hunger and At-Risk Youth.
Iman attended the event with her first daughter, Zulekha Haywood.

Other celebrities at the event included Boris Kodjoe with his wife Nicole Ari Parker Kodjoe, Trey Songz, Jamie Foxx & Gabrielle Union.
There was another “African moment” at the BET Honors event. Dreamgirls star, Anika Noni Rose rocked a Deola Sagoe dress.

The BET Honors Special will premiere during Black History Month on February 21, 2011.
