  • Just in case you thought racism was over and solved forever, here’s model Chanel Iman talking about how the fashion industry is not immune to the “one is enough” idea when it comes to diversity. “A few times I got excused by designers who told me ‘we already found one black girl. We don’t need you anymore.’ I felt very discouraged. When someone tells you, ‘we don’t want you because we already have one of your kind, it’s really sad,” Iman told the UK’s Sunday Times Magazine. This is especially troubling given how magazines will book light-skinned models and put them in blackface instead of just hiring black models! [Clutch Magazine]

Chanel Iman’s 21st Birthday & Other Extravagant Celeb Birthday Parties

Why am I not surprised that Chanel Iman’s 21st birthday party today is taking place on a private island? The model has rented a small island off the coast of Jamaica where she’ll be ringing in legal drinking age with a reggae-themed bash. If that doesn’t sound like one poppin’ party, I don’t know what does. [Fashionista]

I have to give Chanel credit, though, because her fête sounds positively down-to-earth in comparison to some other celebrity birthday blowouts we’ve seen …

While Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima goes to disturbing lengths to stay slim, model and alleged Kanye West canoodler Chanel Iman went to similarly disturbing lengths to put on weight to appear in the televised lingerie fashion show. Apparently, Iman gained 15 pounds in order to walk in the show, adding curves to her otherwise stick straight body. She did so on a diet of protein shakes and by incorporating weight lifting into her workout routine. And, she says, the day before the event, “I have a big potluck at my house. All my friends bring over food and we barbecue and party it up!” Well, that’s great and all, but it’s definitely scary that Iman put on 15 pounds and still looks waif thin as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Remember that the next time you look at a model on the runway and think she has the “perfect” body. [Modelinia
