"Iman could never have written a book about eye shadow... she's too cool... I am Iman is as smart - and as frivolous - as one could have hoped for." Vanity Fair "Iman proves that this is her moment [with]... a visual essay on the power of looks at a time when we are consumed by the importance of appearance."Vogue "Iman blasts the Beauty myth... with striking images in a book set to revive the blue-eyed blonde debate" The Voice A 25 year self-portrait by the world's first black supermodel, filled with iconic photographs by Norman Parkinson, Helmut Newton, Annie Leibowitz, Steven Meisel, Ellen Von Unwerth, Nick Knight, Herb Ritts and other legends. In addition to her own recollections, enlightening contributions from Isabella Rosselini, Interview editor Ingrid Sischy, African-American feminist cultural critic bell hooks and the outspoken comedianne Sandra Bernhard provoke questions about 'the unserious business of pop culture and its very serious effect on identity'.
