Name: Iman

Occupation: CEO; author; model; global ambassador, Keep A Child Alive; TV personality

Icon at home: An international style icon for decades -- and co-host of Bravo's The Fashion Show with Isaac Mizrahi this fall -- Iman calls the city she’s lived in for 30 years, "fashionable, intellectual, individual, and most of all, global. I cannot think of any other city I would like to call home."

The Bowie Birkin bag: The founder and CEO of IMAN Cosmetics, Skincare and Fragrances says her motto is “In a world full of trends, I want to remain a classic.” An enduring classic, of course -- a black croc Birkin bag -- is one of her go-to items and the first gift her (also iconic) husband David Bowie gave her.

Stylish celebs: Victoria Beckham ("for her unabashed love of fashion"); Chloe Sevigny ("for her singular individual style"); Halle Berry ("for her refined sexuality")

"I prefer silhouettes that are feminine and hark back to a bygone era of hourglass figures but still look modern. I am a mom, a wife, and a CEO of my own company, so I love utilitarian chic and refined luxe."
