It takes quite some doing to equal David Bowie in the style stakes, but one woman who has proven herself to be more than up to the job is his wife Iman.

Bowie and Iman at one of their first public outings as a couple in the early 1990s.

Monday 6 June 2016 marks Bowie and Iman’s 24th wedding anniversary.

The couple married in 1992 and the ‘Lazarus’ singer is widely quoted as saying:

“You would think that a rock star being married to a supermodel would be one of the greatest things in the world. It is.”

The joy Bowie and Iman found in their relationship is evident in the contagious smiles they always wore in each other’s company, and this is what makes their public appearances as a couple so appealing to watch, as evidenced in the photos below.
