Iman and the Missoni family received plaques from the City of Beverly Hills on Rodeo Drive to honor their substantial contributions to fashion and entertainment.
At the plaque ceremony, Iman gracefully invited all the attendees to “walk all over me, shop and be fabulous.” Speaking about her new plaque on Rodeo Drive, Iman received the Walk of Style award from Rachel Zoe during a small ceremony held outdoors on Rodeo Drive. Iman wore a long mocha Rachel Zoe dress with a tow tie blouse and sequined jacket, rather than Missoni, surprising some of the attendees.
Iman dedicates much of her time to raising funds to help children in Africa and during her acceptance speech, the former model mentioned the devastation and hardships people are still suffering in East Africa. She stated that many people are still faced daily with a “Sophie’s Choice” that no one should have to make and encouraged the attendees to donate to “Save the Children” to help raise funds and awareness for the famine and drought that is ravaging East Africa.
After Iman was presented with her award, Quincy Jones presented an award to the Missoni family. Jones considers himself a “Missoni junkie” and praised the family for their designs characterized by a “kaleidoscope of bold hues, zigzags, stripes, waves, flames, geometric patchwork and floral jacquards.” Many Missoni family members were in attendance, including founder Rosita and children Vittorio, Luca and Angela. Also in attendance was Margherita Missoni who was featured in the Target campaign and Vogue spread.
Angela Missoni thanked the entertainment community for embracing the style of Missoni throughout the years.
