Iman stopped modeling in 1989 and hasn't gone to a single fashion show since. "No one ever believes me," she told Fashionista. "I was at the tents at Lincoln Center as an interior decorator — I did the Mercedes lounge — and when they saw me everyone was like, ‘Come to a show!’ But I’m done." She attributes her career's longevity to knowing when to stay away. "I know fashion people. The reason I lasted this long is because I’m not around them all the time!" [Fashionista]
