Chanel Iman Quotes

1. I don't like to fly. What's it called when the plane shakes? Turbulence, takeoffs…I grab my chair, close my eyes, count to 30, breathe, and pray.

4. Music is everything to me. I wake up and go to bed with it. I listen to all genres, depending on my mood.

16. Honestly, I try to forget Fashion Week once it's over. I just want to go home and rest and just forget I even did it. It could drive you crazy! It's just show after show after show, and you're missing your family and they feel really far away. You don't go to sleep. You work for a month.

17. I'm grateful to look the way I do. However, if I could change anything, I would like to be a bit bigger all over. Not much - just a bit.

19. Don't be afraid to express yourself through fashion!

20. I'm really focused when I'm working out, so I don't really listen to music. I like to listen to music after, because it's like: "Yeah! I finished! Let's party!"
