Face to Face with Fredricka: A Conversation with Iman

By Fredricka Whitfield

She’s a one name wonder. Iman. You’ll remember her from the covers of every fashion magazine around the world in the 70s and 80s. American, French, Italian Vogue, Glamour you name it. Her flawless complexion. Graceful neck. Statuesque body in elegant poses. And, of course, her strut down the catwalk and the audible cheer from the photographers and fashion fans at the sight of her. All of that and more made Iman iconic. But while visiting with her just days ago in her 7th avenue office she is as gracious as she is stunning. Open to talk to me about what it is to be an icon. How “they” didn’t build her, “she” built herself. How as a Somali diplomat’s daughter, her natural instincts and political intuition were her guideposts when her modeling break came at age 18.

You’ve got to see my Face to Face interview with Iman. You will be inspired by the frank words from her mother to “know your worth”. You’ll be impressed and motivated to hear Iman’s advice on protecting your image and owning it. To plan the next “act” in your life. And whatever you have up your sleeve, that passion you want to turn into an enterprise? She says “research, research, research.” Oh and what about life outside of Iman’s now booming multi-million dollar cosmetic line, home and fashion designs? Yes, the David Bowie part. She opens up, a little, about protecting the privacy of their two decades long marriage and family life. Iman Face to Face with Fredricka.
