I watched her segment of the episode in the live streaming of the show, her speaking has really improved so much and I loved seeing her show the girls how to pose. I hope there's a download for it eventually, although I haven't found one for this season yet.

I tried that and it was impossible, tvpc had the channel so I took a chance and went and caught it just in time! I was worried I would miss her but her segment was the last one/elimination part of the episode. She did really well.

Galore Magazine - Spring 2013 - Interview
Alex Catarinella: Chanel Iman! Howís it going being one of the biggest supermodels on the planet?
Chanel Iman: Iíve been working my *** off! I just got back from Mexico shooting for H&M and I just walked in the Jason Wu show at New York Fashion Week. Thereís a lot going on and Iím just glad to be working. Iím happy this year. I know what Iím doing and what my goals are. Youíll see a lot coming my way.

AC: That makes me overly excited. Can you remember your first ďOMFG! I am a supermodel!Ē moment?
CI: My fans make me feel that way. Iím so grateful for my fans because they inspire me everyday to keep going. The sweet messages I receive always just make me feel so loved and appreciated. It makes me want to work harder. I would love to be a leader for our generation in a positive, uplifting way. And my fans give me the inspiration to be that.

AC: Do me a fashion-y favor. Tell me about your pre-supermodel modeling beginnings.
CI: I was a child model. I started when I was really young. My aunt took me to a modeling agency when I was 12-years-old, and then I moved to New York from LA when I was 15.

AC: And the rest is history. I feel like I HAD to say that. Anyway, who are your favorite designers to work with?
CI: Iíve done lots of runway shows ó from YSL to Dior to Gucci to Marc Jacobs to Alexander McQueen. You name it, Iíve probably done it. I love Jason Wu. I did his very first show and Iím very supportive of him and heís very supportive of me. I love Tom Ford. And Alexander Wang has been someone Iíve worked with from the start.

AC: FYI, itís the Women Who Rock issue. What ladies rock Chanel Imanís wonderful world?
CI: Let me seeÖ Beyoncť, Oprah, Michelle Obama, Alicia Keys, Halle Berry. Thereís a lot of women out there who rock who I look up to. I think Ellen [von Unwerth] rocks. Itís my first time working with her but itís definitely not my last. Sheís awesome.

AC: And any rocking family members?
CI: My mother rocks ó sheís the number one rocker. Sheís taught me everything Iíve known and sheís a strong woman. My older sister rocks too. She always gives me great advice and sheís just beautiful inside and out.

AC: By the way, whatís your zodiac sign?
CI: Sagittarius.

AC: Ditto! Do we both share the totally crazy gene?
CI: Iím not crazy actually. Iím more chill and shy a little bit Ė well, not really on set. But in person Iím a little shy. When you get to know me, I open up. Iím a cool chill chick to hang with.

AC: Iíve gotta say, it did seem like Ellen brought out your Sasha Fierce on set. Which brings me to ask: do you have an alter ego?
CI: Of course. Everybody should have an alter ego.

AC: Does she have a name?
CI: I donít think I would name my alter ego. Thatís corny. It just comes out. I let it speak for itself.

AC: One would assume that every dude on the planet hits on you. Fact or fiction?
CI: Not really. Iím busy and focused right now. Iím not worried about guys. And if I am worried about guys, itís a special guy that Iím worried about and heís the only one who has access of hitting me up and flirting with me.

AC: Meow! Okay. So, you kicked it with Mr. and Mrs. Obama. No big deal or anythingÖ
CI: Iím honored to be able to meet the First Lady and the President. They were very warm and welcoming and just gave me lots of love.

AC: Speaking of loveÖ out of all of your magazine covers, which do you love the most? Well, besides Galoreís of course.
CI: One of my first major covers was American Vogue. Some of my favorites were the American ELLE cover, the Time cover, the The Wall Street Journal coverÖ I mean, Iím just blessed to be on any cover. Theyíre all my favorite.

AC: The Victoriaís Secret angel wings. Discuss.
CI: My first year, I didnít have wings. My second year, I had two types of wings. I had the classic white wings, which was a really, really special moment for me. And then the same year, I got the big bubble wings, which were like half of my size and it was really, really heavy to go down the runway with. Sometimes you get light ones and sometimes you get heavy onesÖ but you have to make it look good.

AC: Itís such a circus of a production and super overwhelming for my eyeballs. Is the rehearsal essentially an all day hot mess?
CI: The rehearsal is very long ó well, it can be. If everyone arrives on time, itís in-and-out, but usually models run a little late.

AC: Apologies in advance, but I must ask a really important questionÖ. How was making out with Usher in his music video for ďDiveĒ?
CI: It was my first music video! I did it because I loved the concept. It was a pleasure to work with a guy like Usher because he always has really hot girls in his videos. It was very special for me because I grew up listening to Usher and I never thought that I would be making out with him in an entire video.

AC: Was it difficult putting on your acting shoes?
CI: Itís not really a job to make out with Usher. Itís very easy.

AC: A gay can only dream! Sigh. So, we all know that youíre drop dead gorgeous and stuff. But I also have learned that tons of major models deal with insecurities, which, PS, is SHOCKING. What do you do when/if you wake up in the morning and arenít feeling so stunning?
CI: I think all women feel a little insecure every once in awhile. But you know what? I have really great people who surround me so I donít really feel that way very often. When I do feel that way, I just take some time to myself and zone out in my own little world, read a book, and listen to some music. I donít like to have negative energy around me.

AC: Thatís a Sagittarius trait, girl. Anyway, who are your model BFFs?
CI: Karlie Kloss is one of my girls. And Tyra [Banks] has always been very supportive.

AC: Can you see yourself taking a similar career path as Tyra?
CI: Not really. I think Tyra is Tyra and Chanel is Chanel.

AC: So we canít look forward to any ĎThe Chanel Iman Showí plans?
CI: Iím not really into that. I have a personality but Iím more low-key and quiet. She has a whole different type of career than I have, but itís always great to have support from all different types of models and people. I donít think I could ever be like TyraÖ But I can be like Chanel.
