This month, two-time SI Swimsuit model Chanel Iman can add actress to her ever-growing resume. Starring in both the top-tier Sundance comedy, Dope, and a prominent feature in InStyle, our girl is on her way to a level of fame she's never known before.
Opening up to our sister glossy about the movie which goes "well beyond the stereotypes of 'black film'" and how it has changed their lives, Chanel and her costars, Zoë Kravitz and Kiersey Clemons, also showcase some of the season's hottest trends on the beaches of beautiful Santa Monica for the monthly fashion magazine.
Following the story of main character Malcolm, a high school senior, Dope explores a friendship based on a shared love of 90s-hip-hop culture, a need to focus on studies, and the experience of playing music in a garage punk band. And when a chance encounter with a drug dealer sends Malcolm and his friends on an epic adventure, friendships are both bridged and broken.
Watch the official trailer below for a first look at one of Sundance's biggest hits:
