Iman has marked what would have been her 24th wedding anniversary with David Bowie by paying tribute to her "forever love". Taking to social media to honour the special day, the model shared a throwback photo of herself and David laughing and joking around on a beach.

The image appears to have been taken during a photoshoot, and has the words "The best thing about me is you", written along the bottom.

"June 6th ... 24th wedding anniversary #foreverlove," Iman captioned the photo, which attracted hundreds of comments from fans sending messages of love and support.

Monday marks the first wedding anniversary that has passed since David's death in January at the age of 69. Iman has faced a difficult few months in the months that have followed after also losing her mother, but has been staying strong for the sake of their daughter Alexandria, 15.

While the model has maintained a low profile, she has continued to post a number of inspiring and motivational quotes on Instagram, including a recent message which said: "Hold on to the love, not the loss."

It is a mantra which Iman appears determined to live by, and a recently released interview with the 60-year-old showed that she always made her relationship with David her number one priority.

Speaking prior to her husband's death for an episode of OWN's Oprah: Where Are They Now?, Iman revealed the secret to their lasting marriage.

"You have to be at the right time your life that you're ready for an everlasting relationship, that it becomes a first priority in your life," Iman said. "If your career is important to you, don't get married and have children, because something will give.

"I know as women we want to be able to have it all, but we can't have it all at the same time. So, make your priority of what you want at that time. Sometimes you don't even have to get married," she said. "Why do you have to get married?"

She also revealed that when they were at home David was different to his famous persona. "We both understand the difference between the person and the persona," Iman said. "When we are home, we are just Iman and David. We're not anybody else."
