FabSugar Interview With Model Chanel Iman 2010-02-14 13:54:48

Valentine's Day Exclusive! Chanel Iman Hearts Her Boyfriend and Her Chanel Bags

Chanel Iman is a sweetheart. So it's perfectly fitting I caught up with her on Valentine's Day. Wearing a tank that proudly stated "I Heart My Boyfriend" the Modelinia magazine cover star just arrived for New York Fashion Week — best friend and boyfriend in tow.

Today, the model/skateboarder is walking in the Diane Von Furstenberg show, tonight she has romantic plans with her man. Want to hear all about Chanel's obsession with Chanel bags — she even has a design idea for one, Karl — and who she's looking forward to walking for this week? Here she is . . .

What's new and exciting with you?

I'm just happy it's Valentine's Day and I get to spend it with someone I love and we're in New York. We're both from LA so we're going to make the best of it.


And is this your red Chanel bag to match your Valentine's Day outfit?

Yes, and I had red lips on, like my best friend over there (points to her), but I took it off because it smeared in the taxi. But I'm going to put it back on.

And then it will come back off later when you're with your boyfriend . . .


For more,

How many Chanel bags do you own?

I like Chanel bags. They're so classic. That's a bag I'll always wear. I have four or five. I'm going to buy a new one; this patent leather navy one that just came out. I have an amazing idea for Karl but, you know, I have to talk to him about it. I think it would be amazing, a real Chanel bag.

What other shows are you walking?

I love Ralph Lauren. DVF now. I'm not walking Donna Karan this season, but I love working with them. Oh, and Michael Kors!

What is your secret to staying warm? What do you like to bundle up in?

Lots of layers, scarves, thick socks, and boots — my favorites are boots. And leather jackets.
