Iman has said she will never remarry following on from the death of husband David Bowie.

The 65-year-old supermodel has described her late spouse, who died of cancer in 2016, as her "true love".

“David is in our hearts and minds on a daily basis, for all of us," she told Harper's Bazaar. "You know, this was my true love. My daughter once asked me if I would ever marry again and I said, ‘Never’.

“He’s hiding in plain sight. 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.”

The couple married in 1992 and share daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones, 20. Iman explained their marriage was more "everyday" than people assumed.

“It could not have been more regular. It was a really everyday marriage. 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.

“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,” she said.
