Happy 60th birthday, Iman!

One of the fashion world’s most timeless, elegant supermodels reached her diamond year today, and we’re celebrating her, of course. Iman—a Somali native who was discovered while attending university in Nairobi, Kenya at age 19—paved the way for black models to be treated equally in the industry from when she touched down in the U.S. in 1975, so there’s no better time to run through her iconic beauty moments.

PHOTOS: Iman’s Ageless Beauty Over The Years

We’ve noticed that the supermodel appears, well, ageless in photos both on and off the red carpet: Editorials from the ’80s look identical to ones from 2015, which speaks to good skincare, good genes and, of course, Iman’s inner beauty. The star, by the way, has been dishing about turning the big 6-0 this week, opening up to Style.com about what her next steps in life may be.

“I do feel that my next step will be focused specifically on my age group,” she said. “I think there is a blind way that America thinks about youth, and that needs to change. Everything happens out of your own experience. And, let me tell you, a lot is happening to me now. I can never be 20 or 30 [again] and I wouldn’t want to be. I’m almost 60 and I would love to change the way people view 60.”

We think you’ve already done that, Iman—for us, and many more to come.

Iman Celebrates 60th Birthday with Vanity Fair Italia Cover and Fashion Spread

Iman is just about to celebrate her 60th birthday and the supermodel couldn’t look any more stunning. It only makes us want to rush and buy her entire cosmetics line if it’ll give us the hope of looking this good when we’re her age. Iman is ringing in the big milestone with a cover shoot for Vanity Fair Italia’s latest issue, where she poses in some glamorous styles. Between the super short ‘do, the hair accessories, fierce makeup and the fact that Iman can make anything look amazing, we’re just loving everything about this fashion spread.

The fashion spread was shot by Markus & Koala and the model was thrilled to share her images with her Instagram followers. Iman not only shared the Vanity Fair Italia cover, but also takes from her shoot with the hashtag #ImanAgelessChic. She truly is.

So how does she stay looking so young through the decades? Turns out it’s not rocket science and you won’t find it in a plastic surgeon’s office.

“I go to the gym, I am attentive to the diet. And I’m not complaining of the extra pounds, at least a couple, because they act as a natural botox,” she said. “When women get older, the first place you see it is the face that becomes too thin, worn out, tired. And then they go to get botox, but for me the best remedy is a bit ‘overweight.’”
