Rude Celeb Of The Week: Supermodel Iman Says Michelle Obama “…Not A Great Beauty”

May 20, 2009

Since I write about “Rude Celebs” I thought this post would fit.

Now, I think it’s more about an opinion.  You can like First Lady Michelle Obama or not.  You can like her fashions or not.  You can call her beautiful or not.  It’s your opinion as it was supermodel Iman that recently said…

Beauty-Tude: Iman V. First Lady

Beauty-Tude: Iman V. First Lady

US First Lady Michelle Obama is not a “great beauty,” but will “just get better with age,” Iman, one of the first black supermodels, says in a magazine interview.

Mrs Obama is not a great beauty,” the Somali-born model and wife of rocker David Bowie tells Parade magazine’s Sunday issue, reflecting on the first black US first lady, who is a lawyer by training and a former executive.

“But she is so interesting looking and so bright. That will always take you farther. When you?re a great beauty, it?s always downhill for you. If you?re someone like Mrs Obama, you just get better with age,” she said.

Wow, Iman had a mouth full.  You can read it here.

Iman, you can have your opinions. Talking about our First Lady’s choices of clothing  is one thing.  I would have chosen not to speak out about our First Lady in this manner, at least in regards to her “beauty”.  Would you?

    I don’t see where Iman was “speaking out about” Mrs. Obama. If anything, it was a compliment.

    Mrs. Obama isn’t a “great beauty” by the standards of modeling or classical art. She does – as Iman says – however, have the sort of appearance that will weather the years well and perhaps even become more striking. She’s also bright and animated which will count far more in the long run.

    If a supermodel says you’re not a great beauty, it’s kinda not a compliment.

    I’m just saying…

    True, but what about when an aging, past her career supermodel says it, but also she you have the sort of look that gets better with time and possess something beyond mere beauty?

    Oviously Iman is clueless about what makes a great beauty. Women like Mrs. Obama will always be considered to be one of the great beauties of the world.
