Converse to Tom Ford: Chanel Iman's High-Low Style
Chanel Iman is known for her high end red carpet style and glamorous runway appearances. But if you were to bump into her on the street, you might not recognize her! When she's not working, Chanel prefers a laid back look.
When we chatted with her, she let us in on her off-duty uniform. She said:
I really feel the most comfortable in a baseball cap, a tank top and jeans. Now, of course, it's summer, a pair of shorts and converse. So I would say my normal style is casual hipster type. But when it's time to get dressed up and go out I like to dress really nice and put on really nice beautiful high-fashion clothes.
Chanel has walked all the top runways and counts many of the industry's most talented as her friends. We asked her, of all of the designers she has at her beck and call, which one she turns to to wear off the runway. She said:
At the moment I'm loving Tom Ford's collection, I did a really cool spread with all Tom Ford's clothes that hasn't come out yet and I just really love every piece that I put on. There's so many different designers but at the moment I'm loving everything of Tom Ford's, obviously for every day wear I like wearing Alexander Wang. At the moment that's what I'm wearing.
