Iman posted the sweetest memorial to David Bowie as the one year anniversary of his death approaches

The legacy of 2016 is still a tough one. As we move forward through the new year, we continue to remember everyone we lost last year. With the one year anniversary of his death approaching this week, Iman posted a sweet memorial to David Bowie, the late rock star and her husband, on her Instagram account. It’s a rare window into their private world. (The supermodel first spoke out about her loss in September 2016, nine months after Bowie passed away.) As we mark the one year anniversary of David Bowie’s death on January 10, it’s safe to expect further tributes from friends like Elton John and others in the music world.

The photo’s caption reads, “#BowieForever.”

The hidden smooch is a perfect tribute since, according to Iman, fierce privacy was the secret to their marriage. She says: “First, I think you’ve got to feel hot for each other and respect each other…That’s where it starts. Also, we are very private, so we decided from early on that we will keep the press…out of our house.”

The supermodel’s Instagram feed continues to celebrate her late husband as the one year anniversary of David Bowie’s death approaches. Today, on the rock star’s birthday, Iman posted another tribute.

The image depicts Bowie as a cheeky young boy, adorned with the lightning bolt from his Aladdin Sane album cover. Iman’s caption reads, “Jan 8th #ForeverLove#BowieForever.”

Another post reads, “All it takes is 1 song to bring 1000 memories.” The couple’s fans have left sweet memorial messages for Iman and for Bowie’s children, Duncan and Lexi.

Of their marriage, Bowie was 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.”

Our hearts go out to Iman during this difficult week as the world remembers David Bowie and his incredible legacy.
