New York Times Style Magazine Features Entrepreneur-HSN Vendor Iman, Who Explains Why Husband David Bowie Doesn’t Stand Out In SoHo

We just got around to reading The New York Times Style Magazine from this past Sunday, and there was a nifty photo and item on Iman, who has the Global Chic line on HSN.

We can assure you, Iman is not wearing any of her HSN clothes, shoes or leggings in the full-page photo, which is part of a feature headlined “American Dreamers.” It looks like Iman, who is married to rock legend David Bowie, has 10-inch stilettos on in the photo by Robert Maxwell.

The text notes that Iman was discovered by photographer Peter Beard in 1975, when she was a student at the University of Nairobi. The 54-year-old stopped modeling in 1989, and launched her own cosmetics company, one of the first to target African American women.

The Times says that Iman’s cosmetics company grossed $25 million in the U.S. last year. The blurb doesn’t talk about Iman’s HSN Global Chic collection, which includes apparel, jewelry, shoes and handbags.

Imam told The Times that she and Bowie live in SoHo in Manhattan, and that no one bothers him “because everyone’s dressed better than he is.”
