Iman in Valentino at amfAR Inspiration Gala

Posted on June 14, 2013

Couldn’t we all use a little bit of Iman right now, darlings? Or better yet, a full-on BLAST IN THE FACE of Iman?


Iman attends the 2013 amfAR Inspiration Gala New York at The Plaza Hotel in New York City in a Valentino gown.


Iman laughs at the wind. LAUGHS at it. Why should it bother Iman? If Iman did not wish for it to be windy, then it would not be windy. To Iman, the wind is just another tool to highlight how fabulous Iman is; like sunlight. Or Valentino. Or David Bowie.

      I love that color against her skin tone

    • joancarol

      That neckline makes my face twitch.

      • j_anson

        I love her, but I cannot get behind that bodice. It looks like she’s in the process of growing a second torso.

        • demidaemon

          You know, that is the only detracting part of these images, and yet, somehow, my eye always goes to her beautiful face. That is the true power of IMAN (yes, caps are necessary!).

    • Lucia Kmaid

      She looks great, but the titscepancy is a bit distracting…

      • Plin

        Yeah, the boobs are a little too Picasso for my taste in that dress. On a lesser being, that would be disastrous, but Iman’s fabulosity transcends mere titscrepancies.

        • Little_Olive

          Picasso boobs. The coining of new terms is one of the things I love most here at TLo.

      • SannyDee

        Even on Iman all I can see is that odd neckline – her boobs could be nicknamed The Lady and the Tramp :/

    • marlie

      She’s just so gorgeous. She can’t be a mere mortal.

      • ConnieBV

        It’s the region. My neighbor was Eritrean and they are all gorgeous doe eyed queens. Also-their accents are auditory sex.

        • marlie

          One of my college friends is too. Just gorgeous.

    • MilaXX

      LOVE HUH!

    • Heather

      I’m scared to say it because the sky may fall, but I’m not thrilled with what I can see of her shoes.

    • Silly Grrl

      She travels with her own wind machine right?

      • Super_Red

        no, she just summons wind when she needs it for pictures.

    • majorbedhead

      The bodice of that dress is giving me hives, with the crooked and the titscrepancy going on. The skirt part is fantastic, though.

      • TonyGo

        Totally agree. The whole thing looks like a Cubist painting. My eyes keep wanting to shift everything to the right.

    • e jerry powell

      It’s not a true Valentino red, but it’s Iman, it doesn’t have to be.

    • TAGinMO


      It’s been much, MUCH too long, since we’ve seen you here, Your Majesty.

    • capybara_cafe

      I can’t stand the dress, but she is flawless.

    • PastryGoddess

      Bow down mere mortals…bow down

      • Ramon Figueroa

        Bow down like she is the King of Siam. On your knees, and all the motherloving way down. Or better yet prostrate like Carmelite nuns.

    • Glammie

      And this, my dears, is why David Bowie when he wanted to play over-the-hill-and-old David Bowie in a video he used La Swinton as his wife. You cannot over-the-hill Iman. It is simply not possible on this plane of existence.

    • Patricia Gillett

      Only Iman can make a dress with that much titscrepancy look amazing. Love the jewelry too.

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      And we are glad that she is laughing. Because if we make her unhappy she can kill us and hide the body under her skirt. And she would still be laughing.

      The very first runway show I went to was Calvin Klein around 84 when I was just a young Gayling. I was sitting in the front row and she came out and my inner gasp must have been audible. Then SHE LOOKED AT ME AND OMG I COULD NOT BREATH AND THANK YOU BABY JESUS MY LIFE WAS SETTLED.

      • Diva in 4 Inch Heels

        Ha…it happens to us all at times.
        She’s such a fierce, gorgeous, striking and elegant woman.

      • Malve Lyborg

        I love ‘a young gayling’ and will try to work it in my regular vocabulary (which will not be easy as I’m not living in an english speaking country but I’ll try anyway). And a very cool story!

    • ailujailuj

      is that her tryoutoutfit for DWTS gone straight to DVD?
      crikey. bitch doesn’t age either!

    • mjude

      bow the fuck down!

    • KayEmWhy

      Perfection dear Queen.

    • Judy_J

      My god, she is beautiful. Radiant.

    • Buffy

      Only Iman could make me love a dress with a wonky bodice and titscrepancy.

    • kirkyo

      Not gonna comment on what she’s wearing, but what a fun set of photos!

    • decormaven

      Gorgeous. What a way to cap off the week!

    • frannyprof

      The bustline is so distracting I can’t appreciate her Iman-ness.

    • Anplica Fiore

      Mrs Bowie strikes again! She brings the wind with her!

    • Just Me

      Damn, she REALLY needs to be sitting on someone’s throne, ruling over all creation. Hmmm, maybe someday Cathy Cambridge will own her power like this…hell, maybe someday I will own my power like this. Meanwhile, I’m taking notes like there will be a test later on.

    • norseofcourse

      Whatever she’s doing, it’s definitely working.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Oh wow! Amazing.

    • Rand Ortega

      The Queen of all of our Alien Overlords has command of the wind as she does all of the elements in the universe.

    • formerlyAnon

      I do find it entertaining to envision different scenarios in which Iman & David chat over their porridge and fresh organic berries in the morning.

    • annabelle archer

      This is….not my favorite. She is a divine creature, so I’ll just keep my meaningless quibbles to myself.

    • VicD

      Meet the meaning of the word “FIERCE” bitches. She was in Exit to Eden with Rosie O’Donnell. They had a fight scene in the movie, and Rosie was all, “oh this poor model… I hope she doesn’t break a nail!” until Iman KICKED HER ASS.

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty


    • NoveltyRocker

      Haha! “Iman laughs at the wind.” That’s just how I imagine her moving through the world. Damn, she would have made the perfect Storm in X-men.

      • MishaFoomin

        When they reboot X-Men, as all these superhero movie franchises seem to do, they can then make the correct casting decision.

      • SpillinTea

        Absolutely. The WORST casting decision in superhero movies, ever. (and I’m a Halle fan. Still, no ma’am.)

    • Sunraya

      Iman, the goddess. And she smiles! Amazing! See, January Jones, you don’t have to be a bitch face to be a goddess!

    • ashtangajunkie

      Glorious. Gorgeous. Goddess.

    • Hoffa_w_HerHead

      There is a difference between asymmetrical and slightly askew. She is really pushing that line. Color & fit are perfection, hair & makeup are top notch. 7/10

    • CT14

      I don’t like the dress, but wow. Iman makes the wind blow to set it off to best effect.

      She’s amazing.

    • Qitkat

      Iman laughs at the wind. LAUGHS at it. Why should it bother Iman? If Iman did not wish for it to be windy, then it would not be windy. To Iman, the wind is just another tool to highlight how fabulous Iman is; like sunlight. Or Valentino. Or David Bowie.

      Amen, baby.

    • Imasewsure

      I don’t love the bodice but Iman did not ask me to speak!!

    • AnnaleighBelle

      Black don’t crack. Jeebus.

    • NMMagpie

      Still one of the most beautiful women. Ever.

    • PrunellaV

      Amazing. Surely the Devil is awaiting his due…

    • GorgeousThings

      Love. Huh!!!

    • EveEve

      And no illusion netting. I hope Dita is taking notes.

    • Judih1

      Hate her weave. Too light. Too long. Too much Would love to see her natural hair.

      • l_c_ann

        In agreement about her (or whoever’s) hair.

        It doesn’t need to be waist length, and if it must be, then it needs conditioning. That stuff hanging down her back just looks dry and not able to match the fly away-ness (in a good way) of her dress.

    • conniemd

      If they had just put some boning in the left bodice and made it pointed and even with the right, the dress wouldn’t make me cross-eyed. Overdesigned, but geez what a gorgeous color.

      • JauntyJohn

        Seriously. First I was taken with her face (of course) and the energy of the shot, with the dress moving so beautifully. But then in the other pics I got eye twitches from that bodice.

    • quiltrx

      I’m BOWING DOWN, so I can’t see how askew her boobs look. And she didn’t bring her best accessory!

    • kingderella

      titscrepancy extraordinaire, tho.

    • Killer Bees

      I read the comics of X-Men before I saw any of the movies. In my mind, it was always Iman and Iman’s voice when I read Ororo (Storm). When they made it with Halle Berry… ugh. She just doesn’t have the regal bearing that says “I command atmosphere.”

    • understateddiva

      Iman looks forever fresh, but this dress looks very dated.

    • sleah_in_norcal

      BA-AAM!!! bow down, lesser beings. bring me my bowie.

    • lizajane1776

      That is one fabulous WOMAN!

    • Dhammadina

      TLo: So right on re; wind and her power. Iman is an elemental fashion force.

    • macwell

      I could not say anything better than what was said in the last paragraph of this post. Iman is EVERYTHING.

    • SpillinTea

      I was SO hoping I’d find these photos on here. Uncles T and Lo never disappoint :)

    • jw_ny

      wow! fab!

    • PeaceBang

      I’m ignoring the weird dress and gazing only at her face and figure. She is a revelation.

    • lilyvonschtupp

      Now THAT’s how you wear a dress, ladies!

    • MoHub

      Bowing down.

    • steeg of their own

      She is obviously FABULOUS! I want to know what her nail color is.
