Iman Wears Valentino Haute Couture To 2019 Venice Film Festival [Photos]
The 64-year-old Somali-American model’s dress was adorned with doves and flowers.
Iman, the widow of legendary English rocker David Bowie, received the Franca Sozzani Award at this year’s festival. The honor is given to women in the fashion and entertainment industries who boast significant achievements in promoting humanitarian causes. The award, whose previous winners include Julianne Moore and Salma Hayek, is named after the famous Vogue Italia editor-in-chief and was created by her son Francesco Carrozzini.
Among the humanitarian organizations Iman has worked with are The Children’s Defense Fund, Action Against Hunger and Raise Hope For Congo.
