Iman was quite an impressive sight at the opening night of the 2019 Venice Film Festival on Wednesday, as she donned a feathery blue, white and red dress from Valentino Haute Couture.

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 Hayekis 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.

Iman was also seen wearing a long, violet Valentino Haute Couture dress with matching purple lipstick and a diamond earring.

The model was also seen taking photos with English actor Colin Firth and his wife Livia, among others.

It’s clearly no secret that Iman has a high level of influence in the fashion and entertainment spheres.
