For example, last year, the model went on a vacation to Hawaii and suffered a pretty gnarly round of bug bites. Like clockwork, the worst side of the internet was there to document and discuss her misfortune. A quick search of "Chanel Iman Hawaii" on Google brings up pages of sneaky images of the model's backside, which, put plainly, royally sucks, especially because outlets that covered the paparazzi photos only did it for the clicks. We chatted with Iman at the launch event of W Hotel Dubai, and the model gave us the scoop on what really went down.
"My best friend and I are adventurous, but she's extremely adventurous, and we were going on a hike and were in our bathing suits. And [bugs] always eat me alive, but I guess we were trying to go a hidden route, and I ran into a mosquito nest. And that's how I got bitten up on my butt." And then... It was Fashion Week.
"It got better. But hey, this year, my butt is clear, my legs, my thighs — everything's good. It was everywhere last summer! It was crazy. Nobody asked me how my vacation was [this season], they just wanted to see my back legs. They were like, 'Oh my God, your bug bites! They were horrible,' and I was like, 'Well, this year we're good.'" There you have it, folks. Now, let's put this one to rest.
