Iman will always cherish her relationship with David Bowie! The newest issue of Harper's Bazaar UK features the supermodel on the cover and sees her looking back at what it was like to be with the rock star.
Iman revealed that she'll "never" get married again
Iman shared that Bowie continues to be a prominent part of her and her family's lives, even after his passing in 2016. "David is in our hearts and minds on a daily basis, for all of us. You know, this was my true love," she shared. "My daughter once asked me if I would ever marry again and I said, 'never.'"
She went on to talk about how Bowie's impact on the world as a musician has helped him stay present even though he's no longer here. "He's hiding in plain sight," Iman said. "His fans are still around, his music is still relevant. And on the day of his passing, I went on a hike and a bluebird flew in front of me. A bluebird, above all things!"
Iman opens up about "beautiful, ordinary life" with Bowie
Iman then talked about how being married to Bowie looked different from what some people may expect! "It was a really everyday marriage," she said, revealing that Bowie's on-stage persona was radically different from how he conducted himself in real life— which was far more down-to-earth!
"He was a very funny, warm gentleman – you know, everyone talks about him being futuristic, but no, he was not, he liked more than anything to wear a three-piece suit," the supermodel explained. "It was a beautiful, ordinary life and that was what was great about it. We could live in New York, pick up our daughter from school, walk everywhere... You know, I wish we had had more years."
