Put Together

Chanel Iman, 19 - Appeared in Italian Vogue's "All Black" Issue, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier alongside model's Karlie Kloss and Ali Michael, featured on the cover of Vogue as one of the world's next supermodels and current muse for Phillip Lim.

Best known for her Cover Girl smile and fashion legend name, Chanel is also becoming known for her immaculate sense of style. We've found some of our favourite looks of hers and reflected on them.

1.) Matchy-matchy never looked so good! Her voluminous white blouse is paired perfectly with an olive green vest and hat set and flat boots - every models must-have item.

2.) Chanel wore this custom designed Phillip Lim dress to the 2008 Costume Institute Gala and sent shock waves. Many sources have named her the "Best Dressed" of the night! The theme was super heroes, which Chanel played on humorously and chicly with a large belt with an embossed "C". 

3.) A cape may be on our wish list, but Chanel already has a great one which she pairs with a vertically striped shirt to elongate her already tall body and her signature skinny jeans and flat boots. Much like the first look, Chanel matches all her pieces in a way that's less forced and more elegant.

4.) This grey shift dress goes so nicely with her golden skin tone and Chanel adds that extra something with a long, bold, layered necklace to make it more interesting. But lets face it - with Chanel, it's never boring to begin with!

5.) Believe it or not, this is her casual look. Maintaining her fairly monochromatic look, Chanel puts together her black, silk tie-neck blouse with a simple black cardigan and (what else?) skinny jeans and flat boots. This look is so dynamic with her mixing of matte and shine, that we forget that she's really only wearing two colours.
