Supermodel of legendary fame Iman made head turns as she arrived for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Opening Night Gala Benefit at the New York City Center on November 30. The stately 56-year-old’s commanding presence is enough to create a buzz, but she outdid herself and indeed everyone else at the event in an absolutely phenomenal red gown from the Zac Posen Spring 2012 Collection.
Iman embodied sophistication and panache in the burgundy silk-faille pleated gown with a halter neck and snug fitting. She accessorized with a velvet red clutch, a classy silver and diamond 19th century fringe necklace, and two jewel-studded thick bracelets on her right hand accompanied by a large finger ring.
The stunner’s elegance was further reinforced by her retro marcel waves and her dark eye makeup. The rest of her makeup was natural with some gloss on her lips and a hint of color on her cheeks.
She looks like a gazillion bucks. Her goddess-like beauty teamed with such an ethereal creation is a combination that you just can’t buy and not one that most of us average Janes can come close to pulling off. They’ll be talking about this look for years to come.
Are you as bowled over by Iman’s look as we are? Or is there something about it you would change?
Get The Look
OK, so not all of us can get a body like Iman’s and develop the Zen-like beauty or the serenity that oozes from her every pore. But the hairdo is something that can easily be duplicated if you have the time and a little help from a friend. A simpler adaptation of the finger waves, marcel waves are a great hair style for vintage gowns or the elegant retro look. They can even be worn with an uber-chic suit for work or with a feminine dress for a daytime formal affair.
