We’re still scratching our heads over Iman’s comments on First Lady Michelle Obama’s beauty. The following quote from the former supermodel was printed in the May 17 edition of Parade magazine: “Mrs. Obama is not a great beauty. But she is so interesting looking and so bright. That will always take you further. When you’re a great beauty, it’s always downhill for you. If you’re someone like Mrs. Obama, you just get better with age.” Is this a compliment or an insult? We’re curious to hear what you think.—ZH
