Chanel Iman Heats Up The Cover Of ‘Galore’ Magazine

One could argue that every issue of Galore mag is one about women who rock, since their subjects are always so bonkers amazing, but their Spring 2013 glossy certainly ups the ante in that department. Featuring interviews with a grip of awesome ladies, including Kate Nash, Andrej Pejic, and Brooke Candy, and a slightly racy cover shoot featuring Chanel Iman, it has spring fever written all over it. Shot by Ellen Von Unwerth, Chanel poses in a silver, deep v-necked bodysuit and mirrored gold pumps, silver sunglasses pushed girlishly up on her head, eyes looking straight into the camera, like she’s contemplating whether or not to eat you alive. The vibe is a little bit Boogie Nights, a little bit ’70s, and extremely opulent, and it’s really working for us.

The accompanying spread takes that come hither vibe even further, with Von Unwerth putting Iman in some close to compromising positions, but also maintaining her strength and power throughout with that fixed gaze. Iman is one of our favorite models, because not only is she beautiful, but she has a real personality that comes through in her photographs. In her Galore photos she seems to be looking straight into you, looking at the reader as much as they’re looking at her in the photographs. In the accompanying interview, Chanel actually reveals that she’s a little shy, although you would never get that from her photos. She also talks the ins and outs of wearing those angel wings for the Victoria’s Secret fashion show and who her own women who rock are (hint: they’re VERY similar to ours).
