Iman is adjusting to a new normal following the death of her husband, David Bowie, and she continues to face the challenge with grace.

The 61-year-old retired supermodel attended Tom Ford's New York Fashion Week show on Wednesday, marking her first public event since Bowie passed away in January. Iman spoke with Good Morning America and revealed that she was wearing an accessory in memory of Bowie. "I am holding up. I’m holding up. Today was first day of school," she shared. " I’m wearing this [necklace] til my death, ...and it just says David. So I’ve just been wearing it since forever."
