Age Defying Iman Looks Pretty & Striking as She Reflects on turning 60 for Yahoo Style!

Iman for Yahoo Style - BellaNaija - July2015004

Iman makes us look forward to turning 60!

The Somali-born supermodel recently turned the milestone age and looks like she’s not a day over 30 as she poses for Yahoo Style. She strikes poses in Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Burberry and more. In the issue she talks about not being happy about turning 50, but feels very differently 10 years after.

She says;

…I’ve been since graced with another decade of life. I’m 60 today (25th July 2015). And what a decade it’s been! Ups, downs, sideways, and zig-zags. Oh my. My looks have changed. I have laugh lines—not wrinkles. I walk slowly because I am finally in a place where I don’t have to rush from one place to the next. I can enjoy what I’m engaged in and be fully present rather than planning my answers to questions while someone else is speaking or thinking about my next appointment while my current engagement is still in in progress. Everything doesn’t have to go my way (although let’s be honest, aren’t you happier when it does? Just kidding. Ok, not really). And I wear what I want to because my style doesn’t define me; it’s an expression of myself, but not the whole kit and caboodle.

As my 60th birthday approached this year, I thought about what each decade meant to myself and others as they got older, and sadly it comes with some highly morbid thinking like awareness of mortality, regrets about dreams lost, or nostalgia for youth, when breasts stood proudly (or at least didn’t play Peek-A-Boob in your armpit when you lay on your back). When asked what message I’d like to usher in for this new zeroed number, I didn’t have to dig too far into my psyche to come up the mantras with which I’ll enter the decade.

We have and will we love her at every age. See more images below;

    Although I know Iman looks good for her age, but I don’t judge by air brushed/photo shopped magazine cover looks. Let me see her in real life then I can really judge.

      I saw her in NY a month ago. I will say she looks really good at 60. She’s aging gracefully. I believe, it’s good for people to look their age but in a way that shows they are taking good care of themselves.

    Good genes, habits, money, and Photoshop combined work wonders. I’m being naughty, I know :p
