Iman Bowie: Get the Supermodel Look with Bullet Blues

Iman… Setting Trends at 60!

Let’s talk about Iman. Following on from last week’s Bullet Blues article which was dedicated to the ‘Starman’ himself, today we’re looking to his other half Iman Bowie for some supermodel-standard fashion inspiration.

Here at Bullet Blues we know that the world of modeling links closely to the lucrative fashion industry, and it’s always a treat when we discover just how pivotal style icons like Iman have become over the years. The lasting effect she has had on influencing our day to day wardrobes over the course of the last four decades is truly outstanding, and this lady is certainly a sartorial force to be reckoned with when it comes to dressing her best at all times.

Born in Somalia in 1955, Iman was originally discovered for her modeling potential by fashion photographer Peter Beard. She quickly shot to supermodel stardom and appeared regularly on the runways, as well as on the covers of editorials like Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar more times than we can keep track of throughout the 1970s and 80s. Although she chose to retire from the modeling industry in 1989, she has continued to leave a timeless impression on us by launching her own cosmetics line for ladies of color, she has written two books and has also been involved in frequent charity work.

Alluring and graceful, at Bullet Blues we like to describe Iman’s look as classic meets modern. Her style is universal, translates well internationally, and in turn she has influenced ladies of all ages and race… for this she is a fashion ambassador in her own right. The perfect match for rocker David Bowie, this power couple enjoyed a lifetime’s worth of happy memories and monumental fashion moments throughout their marriage, before David sadly passed away earlier this month.

Here are a few of Iman’s most paparazzi-worthy fashion looks… enjoy!

Why not enjoy a fashion spending-spree and invest in our ‘Camille’ black mini dress, or perhaps the ‘Mathilde’ little black dress for your next luxurious party event. Pair with your favorite skyscraper stilettos, and add some sheer black-seam hosiery for a slightly vintage edge if you so desire ladies. It’s super simple to get Iman’s red carpet look when you have a glamorous Bullet Blues black dress to slip into at a moment’s notice!

Perfect for globe-trotting and hitting the shops for some retail therapy, no Bullet Blues gal’s wardrobe would be complete without a pair of all-American designer denim jeans. If you’ve had new jeans on your fash-wishlist for a while, we have the ideal pair ready and waiting for you to try on for size! Follow in Iman’s fashionable footsteps by choosing a darker hue, boot-cut style jean like the Bullet Blues dark wash ‘Babe Audace’ made in USA jeans. Why not wear these versatile jeans over the top of biker boots, cowboy boots or heeled platforms. Any shoes that give you height will allow you to strike a supermodel pose in your dark blue denim, so don’t be afraid to work the glam factor to the max next time you head out the door!

Alternatively you can choose our ‘Chic Parisien’ skinny premium denim jeans, available with a slim cigarette leg and in a trendy black wash. Simply tuck into flat fur-lined winter boots or wellies, or team leather knee-length boots with a matching trench coat, sunnies and tote bag for a rock chic look like Iman’s.
