During a sit-down with Instyle, she shared how the COVID-19 pandemic sparked a newfound passion that she now shares with her daughter.

She revealed, "I was at my upstate house and I was by myself. So I started painting. My husband was a painter. My daughter is a painter. I have never painted. And I started painting."

While fans marveled at Lexi's resemblance to her father, Iman shared touching memories of her late husband in the interview, emphasizing his never-ending presence in her life.

She recounted a story from their early days together, "My husband, the first week we met, we were walking down the street and my shoelaces came undone, and he got to his knees and tied [them up]. That is my perfect person."

She stressed that Bowie was still her husband, saying, "When people say, 'your late husband,' I always correct them. He is my husband, not my late husband. He was the perfect person for me and I'm happy that I was able to experience that in my lifetime."

When David Bowie was alive, the family led a relatively normal life despite their celebrity status. Iman cooked dinner every night, and they both ensured Lexi had a grounded upbringing. Bowie cherished the time spent playing music with Lexi, who inherited her parents' artistic talents.

"I definitely feel his presence, especially when I look out over the glorious sunsets at our home because David loves sunsets," she said. "So, in that way, he is ever-present. Through my memory, my love lives."

The couple, who met through a blind date, fell in love immediately. "David said it was love at first sight," Iman said. Their enduring love story has since been admired by many.

Although they chose to keep their relationship private, the goodness they brought to each other manifested internally. "If David was not in my life, I don't know if I would have had the courage to start Iman Cosmetics," Iman disclosed.

Iman and David Bowie's home became a reminder of their love and saved her from the pain and heartbreak of losing him. Although many years have passed, she still pays tribute to him in more ways than one.
