A lover's secrets in the UK...
The Sunday Times Style magazine here in the UK, today published a four-page feature on David and Iman entitled Crazy In Love. The article, by Lisa Grainger, includes some wonderful quotes from both David and Iman, illustrated with Ellen Von Unwerth's beautiful pictures taken for the Tommy Hilfiger H Clothing line in Holland last year.
Here's are some excerpts from the piece:
My favourite thing to do on a weekend?? muses Iman, sitting back and fingering a large diamond dropping into her golden cleavage. ?I?d say cooking David some shepherd?s pie. He?d probably choose a fry-up and British papers, but I?m trying to keep his cholesterol down.?
Cholesterol and fry-ups aren?t words normally associated with two of the world?s most extraordinary rock and fashion legends. Well, welcome to the real ? and very romantic ? world of Mr and Mrs Bowie. As these intimate portraits, taken for a new Tommy Hilfiger campaign, show, the two have one of the most inspirational marriages in showbiz.
What?s ?in there?, Iman confesses, is ?the wonderful realisation that I have found my soul mate, with whom sexual compatibility is just the tip of the iceberg. We have so much in common, and are totally alike in a lot of things?. It?s not a love of music, or fashion, or the fact that ?like David has his feminine side, I have a masculine side?, she insists, but the more old-fashioned values: romance, family, commitment.
Even when he?s touring, he calls her every day. They don?t miss the party scene at all, Iman claims, and in New York they can live anonymously, ?going to the park and sitting in cafes. We?re just ordinary people. Our life is domestic. I look at recipes and cook whatever takes our fancy ? Chinese, Italian and Thai?.
After the shoot, Tommy Hilfiger said he had never expected the chemistry between them to be ?quite so incredible?. When the music started to play ? a mix, from rap to rock?n?roll ? ?They just fell into this relaxed, comfortable way with each other. It?s quite clear that they are totally in love, and easy with who they are,? he says. ?It?s a much deeper relationship than you could ever expect.?
So, will they ever consider leaving the good times that New York offers for the home country Bowie admits he misses? ?Who knows?? Iman sighs. ?What?s home? At the moment, it?s New York, which we love, and where I?ve been for more than 25 years. But really, home is wherever David is.?
