In addition to being a breathtaking supermodel, Iman is also a proud new mom to a beautiful baby girl. Since welcoming little miss Cali Clay Shepard with NFL hubby Sterling Shepard in early August, Iman has kept a low profile.

Taking a quick break from her short hiatus, the runway diva made an appearance at New York’s Casa Apicii restaurant this week, where she hosted an intimate holiday dinner with eye care company, LensCrafters, to help spread awareness about the importance of vision health. Based on the company’s mission statement, LensCrafters is a wellness-oriented organization that’s dedicated to personalized service with advanced technology.

Speaking briefly on her personal connection to the cause, Iman turned the attention to her daughter.

“Regularly getting my eyes checked encourages me to make sure that my daughter has healthy vision,” she said. “I want to be able to see her grow up.”

While they undoubtedly improve eyesight, frames have also become a staple fashion accessory over the years. Speaking on her personal need for eye glasses, Iman says she wears her own pair most while reading or when she’s up late.

“I have a new pair of Persol frames that I love to wear that go with anything that I put on, and I just got a copy of Michelle Obama’s autobiography that I can’t wait to dive into,” she added. “My glasses definitely help me to see when I’m up late.”

LensCrafters offers a range of stylish frames made by designers like Ray Ban, Prada, Coach and Michael Kors, with various prices to fit your holiday shopping budget.
