The former model and fashion icon Iman has something interesting to say about First Lady Michelle Obama,
“Mrs. Obama is not a great beauty,” Iman tells Parade.com. “But she is so interesting looking and so bright. That will always take you farther.” ….. “When you’re a great beauty, it’s always downhill for you,” she explains. “If you’re someone like Mrs. Obama, you just get better with age.”
Honestly, I can understand her point. I think the statement wasn’t meant to be offensive, but just an observation.
Is Michelle Obama a beautiful woamn? Yes.
But I think in addition to her outer beauty, its her class, her intelligence, fashion sense, poise, the fact that she remains humble and articulate are some of the reasons why she is so fascinating and beautiful. Not in the way our culture has defined beauty– physical beauty anyway.
So before you all chop Iman’s head off, take that into consideration.
