He was one of the leading artists of the 20th century who sold millions of records and influenced generations with his art and style. She’s a supermodel from Somalia who speaks 4 languages and was the muse of some of the world’s biggest designers. So when love unites 2 people with this much talent and fame, chances are the world will be watching with fascinated eyes.

For him, it was ’’love at first sight’’.

Their romance started when the rock star invited the gorgeous supermodel for an afternoon tea. However, apparently, Bowie was so nervous and infatuated with the beauty that the word ’’tea’’ randomly came out of his mouth. Because later, Iman found out that he didn’t even drink tea.

Bowie had declared that his attraction to her was immediate. However, we cannot say the same thing about Iman, who admitted that it took her a few months to realize she was falling in love with her beau.

Eventually, the lovely couple got married.

David Bowie’s proposal to Iman was a romantic gesture that perfectly embodied the couple’s passionate love for each other. According to Iman, Bowie proposed to her on a boat with a beautiful dinner in Paris. Iman thinks the public might be surprised by how he didn’t act like a rockstar during their courtship. Instead, Iman said, “He is truly, truly an old-fashioned gentleman.”

Around two years after meeting each other, In 1992, Bowie and Iman decided to tie the knot in a small ceremony in Italy.

They lived in their own private haven, far from the spotlight.

Alongside their daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones, the couple led a regular family life trying to stay out of the spotlight as much as possible. And it seemed that their love only grew stronger with time. The music legend had even named an instrumental piece ’Abdulmajid’ after his other half. And once declared: ’’You would think that a rock star being married to a supermodel would be one of the greatest things in the world. It is."

She can still feel his presence and his smell.


Despite nothing seeming to be able to break this dream couple apart, the legendary singer passed away in 2016, 2 days after his 69th birthday. However, Iman’s love for her late husband is still as strong as ever, even after 6 years. She declared that ’’she still feels his spirit and that he’s with them, even though he’s not there in plain sight.’’

The supermodel turned entrepreneur recently created a fragrance named ’’Love Memoir’’ in order to immortalize ’’their eternal love.’’ Admitting that she had been wearing her husband’s cologne since his death and ’’could smell him every day around their house and on their property.’’

’’I wait until I meet him again’’.

26 years of joyful memories together seem to be her driving force today. The fashion icon had admitted that Bowie was her true love. As a matter of fact, his memory is so alive in her that she revealed she doesn’t consider him to be her ’’late husband’’ because he’s still her husband.

Iman was once asked if she would remarry after loosing Bowie and her response was a profound no. She even added that ’’This was truly the love of my life, and I just wait until I meet him again."

Hollywood is known for its whirlwind romances and short-lived relationships between famous icons. But just like Bowie and Iman, Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson faced a similar outcome with the passing of Richardson. Yet Neeson’s devotion and loyalty to her endured even after her death, proving that true love can withstand even the greatest losses.
