By Hollywood standards, Iman and David Bowie defied the odds.
The Somali supermodel and the British rock star got married in 1992. They welcomed a daughter, Alexandria Zahra Jones, in 2000, and they stayed happily married for 24 years. Sadly, after a private 18-month battle with cancer, Bowie died in January at age 69. In an interview taped prior to her husband death for a recent episode of OWN's Oprah: Where Are They Now?, Iman opened up about the man she knew and loved. "People say, 'Do you give him fashion tips?' What are you, crazy?" she said with a laugh. "We're talking about David Bowie. He is fashion!"
Bowie was an icon, sure, but "We both understand the difference between the person and the persona," she said. "When we are home, we are just Iman and David. We're not anybody else."
Iman said the secret to their "lasting marriage" was timing.
