Iman wears gold necklace in memory of David Bowie

Published 08/09/2016


Iman is 'holding up' after the legend's death.

David Bowie's widow Iman is keeping the late icon close to her heart by wearing a custom-made gold pendant bearing the singer's name.

The Fame hitmaker lost his battle with cancer on 10 January (16), just two days after his 69th birthday, and his widow has been keeping a low profile since losing the love of her life, but on Wednesday (07Sep16), she returned to the public eye with her first official appearance at Tom Ford's New York Fashion Week show.

The former model, 61, stunned in a midnight blue velvet trouser suit as she arrived for the occasion, where she joined stars including Julianne Moore, Zayn Malik, Neil Patrick Harris, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Rita Ora, and Naomi Campbell.

At the event, Iman revealed she is still adjusting to life without David and her mother, Marian Abdulmajid, who died just two months after the musician, but she is doing OK as she pushes forward.

"I'm holding up," she told stylist Joe Zee on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America.

The beauty also shared a sweet memento she now wears in memory of her husband.

"I'm wearing this until my death," she said as she showed off the delicate gold necklace. "Hedi Slimane (former creative director for Yves Saint Laurent) made it for me. It just says, 'David'."

"It's just been a tough year," she added, "but I'm holding up."

When Zee praised Iman as a "survivor" for dealing with the huge double loss, she replied, "Not as much as you think."

After the star-studded fashion show, Iman took to Twitter to thank Tom Ford for such an incredible evening, writing: "Thanks @TOMFORD for an intimate/glam presentation for my first night out since last year."

She later added: "Thanks to my loyal friends that are beyond my beauty team... who made this possible."
