[Close-Up] Imaan Hammam & Iman Serve Face For ‘Vogue Arabia’
What better way to celebrate the first anniversary of your print edition than with not one, but two supermodels? Vogue Arabia just knocked it out of the park with their collector’s issue of the glossy featuring the legendary Iman and soon-to-be icon Imaan Hammam. Lensed by Patrick Demarchelier, the pair flaunt their melanin magic while rocking natural beauty beats and turbans from Brooklyn-based designer Nnenna Stella’s The Wrap Life.
The publication commemorated their anniversary with three different covers of the beauties — one with the pair pictured together and each with their own respective covers. Iman is the epitome of style and grace as she delivers goddess vibes in a Marc Jacobs look and a black turban featuring a bejeweled pin by The Wrap Life. For her solo cover, Imaan strikes a stunning pose rocking her natural tresses to perfection while sitting pretty in a Chanel couture ensemble.
Inside the spread, Iman shares her experience about being discovered in Kenya, fighting for equal pay as a model in the U.S and reconciling her religion with her career. Imaan opens up about her Egyptian-Moroccan heritage inspiring her and being proud to be the poster girl for the diversity movement.
Iman on reconciling her religion with her career:
“It is an oxymoron to have your foot in the modeling business and to call yourself a Muslim but at the end of the day, you need to look in the mirror and feel good when you ask, am I doing the right thing?”
