Chanel Iman strikes a selection of fierce poses for The Block’s upcoming summer issue. The 21-year-old model is shot by photographer Doug Inglish and styled by James Worthington DeMolet. According to the editorial, Chanel evokes the style of the late Florence Ballard, an original member of the iconic Supremes. With a floral garden as her backdrop, Iman wears a series of looks designed by Miu Miu and Viktor & Rolf.

Does Chanel pull off a good Florence Ballard?

    Those legs, my goodness are sticks. I don’t think Florence would be wearing any of the extreme ruffle ensemble.

    Florence Ballard was curvy..

    Does she even know who Florence Ballard was? The only thing thing she has in common with her is that she’s black. Nothing about those outfits is retro, or would have been anything the Supremes would have ever worn. Not successful, try again.

    This anorexic trick should be the LAST person chosen to channel Florence Ballard.
