Iman for eleven million views

Well, we were so busy in our new job that he hadn't noticed that we had just passed the eleven million views milestone.  The country with the closest population to eleven million is Somalia.

Here, then, is the most famous Somali woman, Iman, model, actress (memorably in Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country) and wife of David Bowie.  The 5'10" tall Iman will be sixty later this month,  Her father was a diplomat and the Somali ambassador to Saudi Arabia.

These pictures were all shot by Helmut Newton back in the nineties and utterly magnificent she looks too.

Today she concentrates on running her successful cosmetics company which focusses on those with ethnic skin colouring as she had problems finding the right products when she was a model.

This shot is the only one here not by Newton and comes from the January 1986 edition of Playboy.  It is by American photographer Peter Beard, who discovered her when she was a student at the University of Nairobi.


  1. I had never really shot her a look until now. Outstanding. Peter Beard would be an excellent Bond Villain name, by the way. I could see Peter Beard slapping Pussy Galore. Repeatedly. Is this in poor taste?

  2. 3 weeks since Triple P's last post. Damn his new job interfering with our pics and history lessons. :) G$

    1. Things will be back to normal next week!
