Today, June 6th, would have been Iman and David Bowie’s 24th wedding anniversary. To honor this important date, Iman took to Instagram with a gorgeous photo and an even sweeter message: “The best thing about me is you.”

The model and musician met on a blind date (there is hope for all of us blind daters, yet) in 1990 and, as they both described, fell in love quickly. Bowie told Hello! Magazine in 2000, “My attraction to her was immediate and all-encompassing. I couldn’t sleep for the excitement of our first date. That she would be my wife, in my head, was a done deal. I’d never gone after anything with such passion in all my life. I just knew she was the one.” They were married in Italy in 1992.

While it’s heartbreaking to think that Bowie is not around to share the anniversary with her, this was very clearly a love story of souls perfectly matched.

As Bowie once said, “You would think that a rock star being married to a supermodel would be one of the greatest things in the world. It is.” Happy anniversary. As Iman preached so wisely (also via Instagram), “Hold on to the love, not the loss.”
