15 Looks That Prove Why David Bowie and Iman Were Fashion’s Chic-est Couple

David Bowie and Iman Abdulmajid enjoyed a 15 year romance rarely seen in the worlds of rock ’n’ roll and high fashion. “My marriage is exactly as fabulous as you all would think,” the supermodel said on “The Nate Berkus Show” in 2010.

Bowie died on Sunday “surrounded by family” after fighting cancer for over a year, a spokesperson for the musician said. Today, Iman is mourning the death of her famous husband along with the rest of the world. “Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory,” Iman shared via Instagram with the caption: “Rise #imandaily.”

Bowie became immediately interested in the 5’9” supermodel at a Los Angeles party in 1990. “I was not ready for a relationship. Definitely, I didn’t want to get into a relationship with somebody like him,” Iman told the Independent last year.

Despite her initial concerns, the couple fell in love and married two years later in Lausanne, Switzerland. On August 15, 2000, they welcomed their firstborn, Alexandria Zahra Jones, into the world.

A favorite quote of Bowie’s: “You would think that a rock star being married to a supermodel would be one of the greatest things in the world. It is.”

Bowie left behind a legacy that will never be forgotten. In memory of one incredible marriage, here’s Iman and Bowie’s 15 most iconic looks.
