Iman’s Fashion Story Told in Vogue Covers

Since being discovered in Nairobi by photographer Peter Beard in 1975, internationally renowned supermodel and muse Iman went on to land countless Vogue editorials throughout her highly-successful 40-year-plus career, including the cover of Vogue Arabia’s March 2018 edition, which she shares with Imaan Hammam. A modeling legend in her own right, Iman (born Zara Mohamed Abdulmajid), has worked with photographers that most models can only dream of, including Irving Penn, Annie Leibovitz, Herb Ritts, Richard Avedon, and Helmut Newton (occasionally with her late husband David Bowie). With her sharp cheekbones and otherworldly beauty, she’s also served as a muse to designers including Gianni Versace, Donna Karan and Yves Saint Laurent, who once described her as “his dream woman”. Aside from being an internationally renowned supermodel, Iman is also a philanthropist, author, and beauty entrepreneur. Here, we look back at the supermodel’s stunning Vogue covers through the years.
