Good Genes or Good Docs?

10/26/2008 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

As a supermodel Iman Mohamed Abdulmajid Bowie, aka Iman, knows how to give good face, but is it all hers?

Here's the 20-year-old Somalian beauty at the beginning of her career in 1975 (left) -- and the 53-year-old version at a NYC event on Thursday (right).

Apparently, aging is not in this season.

If you see Beyonce' lighter, it's because that is her Natural Color. A lot of the brighter skinned singers go to the tanning Salon too, to darkin their skin... And as far as myself.. In the Winter, my skin is lighter, and during the summer I'm much darker.

She was in a car accident idiots and had to have reconstructive surgery. It's not like she looks like the cat woman or Joan Rivers. She can smile and move her eyebrows.

She has a beautiful face anyway, she has taken care of herself... eat right, exercise and not too much sun exposure will give you results like hers.

White women get weaves, nose jobs, breast implants, lip injections, butt implants and TAN and USE BRONZER. Whites are more into plastic surgery than black people. Always have been and always will be.

How stupid are people! The first pick was when she was in Kenya, which is by the equator, everyone will be very dark being there for a month, let's not talk about for years. She has lived in the Northern hemisphere for 35 years, of course her skin will lighten. Do people believe black people will have constant skin color regardless of their environment?

Iman wa***** by a drunk driver while in a taxi in 1983. She hit the glass partition and had to have her face reconstructed. Of course she is not going to look the same as her photo in 1975. Come on TMZ, do your research.

Sorry but that is simply exfoiliation and good skin care if it was bleach she waould be much lighter, she used to live in HOT africa where the sun shows no mercy so ofcouse with exfoliation and cooler climates her skintone changes, no difference from having a summer tan and winter skin, i have two different foundations, the make up foundation for the winter can't be used for the summer. Black people dont age like white ppl do and even if she was bleaching WHITE PEOPLE TAN ALL THE TIME WHY DOESN'T THIS MAKE TMZ NEWS, WHAT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BLEACHING AND TANNING OH YEAH CANCER IS, THERE HAS NEVER BEEN CANCER RELATED DEATH WITH BLEACHING BUT THE RATE OF CANCER ASSOCIATED WITH TANNING RISES EVERY YEAR
