IMAN So, Beth, we are here in Stone Ridge in upstate New York on the Fourth of July. I think this is very appropriate, because when I came to the United States, the way you welcomed me, I compared you to the Statue of Liberty, right?
BETHANN HARDISON I was working with [designer] Stephen Burrows and I made an appointment for you to come in from Wilhelmina to do a small show, and you were so nervous you were trembling like a bird. When you went to put the shoes on, you were having a hard time so I got down on my knees to try to help you. The other girls were hating you and whispering, “Look at her putting on the shoe for the princess.” [Laughs] I looked at you and said, “You can understand what they’re saying, can’t you?”
IMAN And I said, “Yes!” It meant a lot to me, and we’re still friends to this day. And…not a lot of people know this, but you were my maid of honor when I married my husband.
BH I was so stunned when you asked me! But you said, “Who else could be better?”

I put it here I wasn't sure if she had her own thread.
