Another year, another Victoria’s Secret show.
This year’s Tits & Assfest, held at the Lexington Armory in NYC, featured Adriana Lima wearing a $2 million bra encrusted with diamonds, sapphires, topaz stones, and maybe a little mother’s milk (Lima had a baby last year)…
A performance by Katy Perry’s ubiquitous cleavage…

Happy birthday to Chanel Iman, whose lanky limbs and luscious lips turned the ripe old age of 20 on Monday!
And since we’ve endured enough Blasian falsehoods for the week, let us celebrate one Blasian truth: this little lady is only going to get better and better and better with age. Y’all know it’s true.

(Liu Wen is the “first Asian model” to walk in a Victoria’s Secret fashion show–if you don’t count Blasian Chanel Iman, who also made her VS debut at the same time–November 19, 2009.)
Why She’s a Babe: Well, for one thing, Chanel, who was named after Coco Chanel and the supermodel Iman, is only 19, so she’s actually a babe, as in a babe-in-the-woods. And while she’s been modeling since she was 13, she’s maintained a certain fresh-faced innocence about her (Flashing peace signs! Winking at Anna Wintour!), a fact that made Tyra cry on her talk show and has been widely attributed to the hands-on involvement of Chanel’s mama, China Robinson, who is half-Korean and half-black. And while she’s being billed as the new Naomi, she’ll still put unflattering photos of herself on her MySpace page and give them cute captions like “
Recently, Chanel signed on to co-host an updated version of MTV’s awesomely awful ’90′s show about fashion, House of Style. We’re betting Chanel won’t be as wooden as the show’s original host, Cindy Crawford, although we’re praying the new House of Style will be just as kitschy and bizarre as ever.
After watching enough seasons of America’s Next Top Model, I know one thing for sure: models can’t fuckin’ read aloud! This is why they cry, sweat, chainsmoke, and vomit before they do a commercial challenge, because they know that few models were meant to speak. I’m still waiting for the day when one of the aspiring contestants gives up the soundbite: “I’m skinny and pretty, can you believe they want me to walk and talk, too?” or “They never make them say anything on Project Runway!”
So I guess we should be giving professional model Chanel Iman credit for getting through the copy for her OnexOne.org PSA with a relative few stumbles.
But when talking about the lives of impoverished children, a glassy-eyed read and a closing wink seems a little…glib, doesn’t it?
On Wednesday, during London Fashism Week, Naomi Campbell put on a Fashion for Relief charity runway show featuring her hot Blasian model friends, Chanel Iman (who is a quarter-Korean) and Tyson Beckford (who is a quarter-Chinese):
And we were curiously left off the guest list. Hmm. Maybe we should be nicer to our favorite phone-thrower-nista?
