Chanel Iman in “Guiding Light” photographed by Paul Maffi for The Edit MagazineStyled by Maya Zepinic.

When Chanel Iman watched Lupita Nyong’o win her Best Supporting Actress Oscar two weeks ago, she burst into tears. “It was a very emotional moment,” says Iman, smiling on the sun-blanched patio of Mr C’s restaurant in Beverly Hills. “All my friends and I were holding hands in front of the television, willing her to win. Then when she did it was like we had been given the award. Because I really believe that having a black woman win an Oscar is going to help pave the way, not just in her industry, but mine.”
