OUT/100 AWARDS I have been chosen as one of OUT 100… this event celebrates yearly 100 men and women who rocked 2006! I was awarded for the Humanitarian of the Year Award for my work for Keep a Child Alive (www.keepachildalive.org) and the other awards were to Michael Kors, Anne Hathaway, Rufus Wainwright and John Cameron Mitchell. My dear friend Isaac Mizrahi presented the award to me at Capitale in NY. I was Queen of Queens for that night! I was humbled by the support.

THE BLACK BALL GALA Nov 9th was our main annual fundraiser, The Black Ball, at the Hammerstein Ballroom and both Alicia Keys and i co-hosted this year. “I can’t wait,” said actress Anne Hathaway, in anticipation of a rare live set by my husband David. “I think he’s so sexy, but i shouldn’t say that too loudly, since I’m sitting at Iman’ table!” Honey, you can say it!! We had one hell of a turn out from Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes ( a week before their wedding!” Damon Dash, Rachel Roy, Russell Simmons. Kimora Lee Simmons, Ed Norton, Jeffrey Wright and our MC Wanda Sykes. Rousing performances by Angelique Kidjo, Damian Marley but the highlight of the evening was the duet of Changes of Bowie with Alicia Keys, it brought the house down.

GLAMOUR WOMAN OF THE YEAR What a year it has been so far! I was awarded one of Glamour’s Woman of the Year for my humanitarian work for AIDS in Africa. I was given the “model citizen” award and it was a very moving and inspiring evening. “Iman would have made history as a supermodel alone,” says friend and Keep a Child Alive global ambassador Alicia Keys, “but she is channelling her boundless passion into an issue that needs all the visibility it can get.” Please, donate to www.keepachildalive.org
