I was shocked when I stumbled across photos of Chanel Iman on the red carpet for this year's annual MET gala. She was in attendance at the Costume Institute Gala for the "PUNK: Chaos to Couture" exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City. I was shocked because she looked amazing - just so well put together and I haven't really seen any photos of her in a while.
For the 2013 MET gala, Chanel wore her hair in a beautiful partially braided style with pink highlights added to the tip of her hair. She has struggled over the years with her hair and now she is on point! The punk-theme for this year's MET gala obviously inspired her to try this new punkish hairstyle. She wore a dress by J. Mendel that suited her well (custom designed for her!) and gave her a very elegant, upper-class look. She accessorize with a hot pink clutch to match her hair highlights and chose to wear white strappy heels to be season-appropriate. The jewels that she wore are by Lorraine Schwartz.
There is one thing for sure about Chanel Iman and that is that she sure knows how to dress! Her well-manicured nails were trendy and added just the perfect spice to the look. She appeared happy, vibrant and just so at ease in these photos.
Once again Chanel Iman is HOT on the scene! How you like her NOW?!?
She seemed to be a party favorite as she was photographed with designer Gilles Mendel, model Cara Delevingne, model Liu Wen and even mega pop star Taylor Swift. I know that her buddy Kanye West performed at the gala so it was particularly interesting to see her chumming it up with Taylor Swift.
