Chanel Iman scored a sexy photo shoot for the February cover of L’Officiel Paris. The American beauty wore clothing from designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli, Burberry Prorsum, etc. She also headed out to Cape town for all her wonderful backdrops. Now i don’t think there is anything wrong with this, but i’m starting to wonder why this magazine always feels the need to take its black celebs and “africanize” them. Remember Beyonce’s african inspired photoshoot with them and all the drama surrounding her black face paint! Either way many of these celebs need to be reminded of who they are!
I liked Chanel’s photo shoot and i think she wore some lovely pieces. Here is what she wrote on her blog.
Cape town, Africa was a very magnificent place to work and will always have a piece of my heart. My experience in Africa is unforgettable. These photos mean a lot to me. Special thanks to Photographer: Michael Roberts, Stylist Monica Pollosio EVERYONE who made this POSSIBLE nd L’Officiel. Enjoy
