Iman is known for being one of the first people to challenge and change prevailing notions of beauty from the beginning of her career in the 1970's. The daughter of an African diplomat, Iman was born in Somalia on July 25, 1955. She was raised speaking 5 languages, and was a co-ed at Nairobi University working toward her political science degree when well-known photographer Peter Beard spotted her walking across campus. Her first modeling assignment was for American Vogue in 1976. Iman was an instant success in the fashion world, becoming a muse for several fashion designers including Yves St. Laurent, Versace, Calvin Klein, and Donna Karan. During her 14 years as a model, she also worked with many top photographers, including Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, and Annie Liebovitz.
