Iman Abdulmajid celebrated her late husband David Bowie in her own way ahead of the 58th annual Grammy Awards on Monday. The "Space Oddity" star, who died Jan. 10, was memorialized by Lady Gaga at the 2016 show and was included in the "in memoriam" tribute. Abdulmajid, 60, paid tribute to Bowie, 69 at the time of his death, with a major fashion statement prior to Gaga's performance.
The former super model took to Instagram ahead of the Grammys to showcase a custom sweater honoring her hubby. According to a report from E! Online, the garment, which is a piece from Gucci's Fall 2016 collection, says "Bowie" across the shoulders along with colorful birds, hearts and butterflies. Abdulmajid made no mention of her husband in the caption, but it seems clear she was thinking about him.
Not long after Abdulmajid's post appeared on the social media site, Lady Gaga took the stage at the 2016 Grammys. In addition to performing several of the award-winning musician's songs, Lady Gaga celebrated Bowie's legacy through her clothing and makeup. As was previously reported, the "Born This Way" singer performed "Ziggy Stardust," "Suffragette City," "Rebel Rebel," "Fashion," "Fame" and "Heroes." She was joined in her performance, which she called the "most incredible honor," by Nile Rodgers.
In addition to Abdulmajid's fashion-centric tribute and Lady Gaga's performance there are several other Bowie memorials planned in the coming months. In fact, on March 31, there is a tribute concert planned at New York City's Carnegie Hall. The show was organized by friends of Bowie's in the industry and will feature performances from Cyndi Lauper, Jakob Dylan, Perry Farrell and the Roots. The show sold out within moments, though fans of Bowie who wish to attend are being urged to wait for tickets to resurface on reselling sites like Vivid Seats and StubHub.
