“It’s better than I thought it would ever be,” Iman told PEOPLE about joining the cast of the TV series, The Fashion Show: Ultimate Collection at WWD‘s milestone 100th Anniversary Party at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York on Tuesday night. The Somalian-born model explained, “It’s really actually about a fashion show. Not individual designers.” But Iman has already singled out one designer as a personal favorite, modeling a custom silk taffeta Victoria Beckham dress to the bash. “I love it,” the 55-year-old said to PEOPLE of the one-of-a-kind frock that Victoria whipped up for her friend. “I think she’s one of the best designers.” The ageless supermodel continued her Posh praise, enthusing “She’s no longer an emerging designer, she’s become a real designer.” One fashion icon who doesn’t have any input regarding Iman’s sartorial choices is her husband of 18 years, David Bowie. The 63-year-old British rocker hasn’t given or received fashion advice from his confident wife. “No neither, he’s very fashionable and so am I.” –Mary S. Park

Iman comes across as very arrogant.

Iman is a Class-A Idiot! Anyone who would praise that arrogant waste of space Beckham is someone whose Opinion does not or should not matter in the least… beckham a designer… Please! Why doesn’t she start by listing her credentials, where she studied design, how many years she’s spent crafting her vision? Hmmm? Her only claim to fame is being one of the spice girls (and a lowly untalented one at that!) and marrying a pretty-boy soccer player whose made millions… Puhleassseee!

GTH, Puhleaasee! on

To Puhleeaase, 4th November. What do YOU know about fashion? Have you EVER wore any of Victoria’s designs? And yes, they are HER designs though she never went to any schools! It’s the same as cooking! Are you saying that to be a chef one HAS to go to chef’s school for them to be a very good chef? NO! That is just and idiot thinking, just like you!! Do you think other well-established “desginers” don’t have ANY one working for them, drawing for them or sewing for them?? If you do think so, than YOU ARE THE IDIOT one here, not Iman and not Victoria!

Re: GHT on

Re: GTH: Your devotion to this stuck-up primadonna Beckham by your defense of such a talentless B*tch, says more about your inept intellect than anyone who has a negative opinion of her could. Answer me this… If NOT for the marriage to Beckham would this stuck-up poser even still be in the public eye and have had all of these amazing opportunities come her way? Of course NOT! She’s NOTHING without Beckham and her so-called “fashion talent” is laughable! You are as Idiotic as your Idol!
