    US First Lady Michelle Obama might be a style icon for the whole wide world, but Iman, one of the first black supermodels, begs to differ.

    The 53-year-old catwalk queen insists that the First Lady is not a “great beauty” but will “get better with age.”

    "Mrs Obama is not a great beauty. But she is so interesting looking and so bright. That will always take you farther,” a news daily quoted her as saying.

    Iman, who’s married to the rock star David Bowie reflected on the experiences of black women who achieve fame.

    She said that her own rise to stardom did not free her from racism.

    "You suddenly represent a whole race, and that race goes, ``Well, that person does not represent our ideals of beauty``. For lack of a better term, it becomes what it was like during slavery," she said.

    "One had the field nigger and the house nigger. There was this notion that I was chosen by white fashion editors to be better than the rest, which I am not.

    "I did not like being thought of as the house nigger," she added.
