Chanel Iman turns 21 tomorrow and the model is ringing in legal drinking age like any regular young adult: By renting a private island off the shore of Jamaica, naturally. Sigh, my 21-year-old self is dying of jealousy.
On set at a Victoria’s Secret PINK shoot in Miami, Chanel couldn’t help but gush about her big birthday plans. “We’ve been talking about it all day,” she said. “I’m going to Jamaica. Me, my family and my closest friends are staying at a really cool resort called Round Hill and I’m going to throw a reggae-themed party on this island.”
Asked what her first legal drink will be, Chanel can’t help but laugh. “I’m pretty sure in Jamaica you don’t have to be 21,” she says. “But my first, um, American legal drink…I guess like rum. I’m a rum girl. Maybe a Pina Colada.”
“My whole life is like last minute,” she added. “I never know what I’m really doing until maybe a week or even a few days before. This party was planned three days ago!” Not bad for a last minute affair!
We wonder if Kanye will be in attendance..
