  Iman Bowie Tuesday 12 February 2003  
Known as 'the Angel of Africa', Somalian-born Iman Bowie was touted as an African goatherd when she first started modelling in America.

It wasn't long before the truth, that she was a politics graduate who spoke 5 languages, came out. Iman went on to become a world famous model, cosmetics entrepreneur, and supporter of charities.
Iman joins Jenni to speak about her modelling, being a Muslim, and of course about being Mrs David Bowie.
