Despite the fact that Chanel Iman is only 23 years old, she has been in the acting game for many years now, first getting spotted when she was just 13 years old, before going on to bigger and better things. In the course of her modelling career, Chanel Iman has worked with some of the biggest and best names from the world of modelling and has been making all the right moves in her modelling career.
Up until now, it is probably fair to say that the biggest achievement in the modelling career of Chanel Iman was probably back in 2010, when she became a Victoria's Secret Angel and worked with the lingerie giants on a number of occasions now. Earlier this year though, Chanel Iman made her debut in the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, which is a career highlight for any model.
Being a Rookie in this year's publication means that Chanel Iman is now eligible for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Rookie of the Year 2014 award. There is no denying that Chanel Iman has the looks to be crowned the winner but there are some big name models also up for the award, which means that Chanel Iman is not exactly the favourite for the win.
Chanel Iman goes into it as a slight underdog as the other nominees for the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Rookie of the Year award include some top models, such as Valerie Van Der Graaf, Emily Ratajkowski, Hannah Ferguson, Lauren Mellor, Lily Aldridge, Sara Sampaio, Bregje Heinen, Cris Urena, Gigi Hadid, Marloes Hoorst and Samantha Hoopes.
Who do you think will win Rookie of the Year?
