Iman ‘Slays for Days’ & Talks “Natural Botox” on the Cover of Vanity Fair Italia!



Iman for Vanity Fair Italia - BellaNaija - June2015002

Iman is on uber-Supermodel mode!

A few days ago, we were getting nuggets of advice from the beauty entrepreneur and Somalian supermodel’s Essence feature and now she is slaying on the cover of Vanity Fair Italia‘s Exclusive issue.

Clad in haute couture, the 59-year-old model (yes you read right) shows off her slim physique and poised posture for the cameras in an Asian -themed Old Hollywood-esque shoot.

In the issue she talks about how she looks so goo at 59 – “I go to the gym, I am attentive to the diet. And I’m not complaining of the extra pounds, at least a couple, because they act as a natural botox. When women get older the first place you see it is the face that becomes too thin, worn out, tired. And then they go to get botox, but for me the best remedy is a bit ‘overweight’.

See images below.

      Hope you’ll equally look banging as well. Since you won’t be giving birth, you should look 2ce as banging as she would.

      okay sir!!! and please don’t have an excuse to have pot belly in the house as well.if you want a wife with a banging body, make sure you have runway model body with six pack at all times too….hisss

      btw – I am not hating but I don’t see it for Iman tho. yes she is slim and dresses fit well, but I don’t get sexy or striking beauty from her. I prefer the Queen of SLAYAGE – Gawdess Naomi Campbell. Hunny that’s what you call “Serving BAWDEEEEEEE at an Old Age”

      Polypoly, Naomi is 45, comparing her to an almost 60 year old retiree seems unfair IMHO. Let’s wait and see what Ms. Campbell looks like in 15 years, then we can be the judge….
      Btw, I’m not hating either…

    Slays for Days????????????????

    LOL!!! Sorry No. She looks great but “slaying” implies the person is a traffic stopping, accident causing, nosebleed inducing beauty which she isn’t.
