A Model Moment: Bostonista's Exclusive Interview with Victoria's Secret Angel Chanel Iman!


I was lucky enough to score a quick, EXCLUSIVE, one-on-one interview with Chanel!

I have to say she was not AT ALL what I was expecting. She seemed much younger than twenty. Chanel has a bit of a reputation for being...over confident to put it nicely. She certainly seemed at ease in front of the press line of cameras but one-on-one she was almost shy and very sweet.

(Me interviewing Chanel)

Bostonista: You became a Victoria's Secret Angel in 2010! What was that like?:
Chanel Iman: If you saw the show you'll know I was a mess backstage! I broke down because it was such an honor. Not every model gets to get wings!
Bostonista: They look so heavy!
Chanel: Yes! I had two pairs of wings but the bubble wings were heavy. They weighed 45 pounds!

Bostonista: You've done a lot of high fashion shows like Gucci while also working for Victoria's Secret. Do you approach the jobs differently?
Chanel: Not really. But it's fun to go back and forth from sexy and naked basically to high fashion. Victoria's Secret is one of my only commercial clients because I have so much fun working with them!

Bostonista: What is your favorite piece or look from the new MLB/Pink collection?
Chanel: Definitely the yoga pant because unlike other yoga pants they are really fitted around the hips. Even though they are workout clothes they're still really sexy.

Bostonista: So what are your plans for the summer?
Chanel: To be a bombshell! The new Victoria's Secret line is all about being a bombshell this summer so I'm looking forward to going to the beach and embracing my inner bombshell!

Thanks to Chanel, her team and everyone at Victoria's Secret!
