“A lot of designers think that if every girl on the runway looks exactly alike, then people will come to the shows and buy the clothes because they won’t be focusing on the models….It’s not even just runway either… us ethnic girls should be getting a lot of the covers too! I would love to be on half of the campaigns these [white] girls are booking, all looking exactly
alike. It’s not right. It’s not fair,” Chanel Iman, model.
Chanel Iman talks candidly on the issue of race in the modeling industry, dating and her relationship with her mentor, Tyra Banks, in the upcoming issue of Page Six, an insert in the Sunday New York Post.
