Before the post on Sunday, Iman made another post on Saturday where she shared an old picture of her late husband kissing her on her forehead, captioning it:

Iman wore a white robe and closed her eyes as Bowie planted a kiss on her forehead, placing her left hand on his shoulder as he did.

Bowie worked across multiple disciplines, making him one of the most influential entertainers of the 20th century.


Iman was not the only person who paid tribute to Bowie. Model Naomi Campbell also shared a throwback picture that showed her talking to the music icon while Iman stood beside them.

In her caption to the post, Campbell joked that she, Bowie, and Iman were playing gooseberries in the snapshot before adding that she cherishes all the beautiful moments she had with them.


Five years after his demise on January 10, 2016, Bowie, renowned for his restless reinvention, continues to inspire and amaze fans and music lovers worldwide.

Bowie worked across multiple disciplines, making him one of the most influential entertainers of the 20th century. He was born on January 8, 1947, in London, England. His first hit song was "Space Oddity," which he released in 1969 before going on to make more hits.

Bowie was also an actor and starred in the hit 1976 film, "The Man Who Fell to Earth." He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and died from cancer 20 years later.
