The only child of the late “Ziggy Stardust” singer and model-turned-makeup mogul Iman has graduated from high school. Her “thrilled” mama, 62, proudly shared the news on social media.
Iman’s post included a video that her older daughter, Zulekha Haywood, made for her sibling. (They also have a half-brother, director Duncan Jones, from Bowie’s first marriage.) It started with photos of Bowie and Iman holding baby Lexi, whose full name is Alexandria Zahra Jones, and showed more snaps as she grew. In one, Lexi was playing a bongo in a hula skirt — and another showed her as Dorothy in a production. The video included more recent photos of her rocking that nose ring — but nothing of her “Daddy” tattoo that she got in tribute to her father, who died from cancer in January 2016 at the age of 69.
Lexi shared a photo from her big day — cap and gown included, of course — as she posed alongside a friend. The NYC-raised teen said she “never thought I’d ever be graduating, but the day has come and I’m so thankful for everyone that has supported me thru this.”
That’s Lexi on the left:
She also recently shared a prom photo along with some pretty typical teen commentary on the event.
So where is Lexi ready to fly off to next? They haven’t said, but her future involves artistry of some sort. On Mother’s Day, Iman shared some of Lexi’s “original artwork,” which she was gifted.
Iman directed her followers to an account that Lexi set up called Unsettling Art to promote her work. On the page, the teen has two more of her creations with a note that says, “Not selling just yet but will be soon!”
Bowie and Iman would have celebrated 26 years of marriage in April — and she still doesn’t miss an anniversary on Instagram. (That’s especially noteworthy because they have two.) Lexi has also been know to post about the beautiful bond between her parents, writing her own tribute about how their “love has only gotten stronger” during their marriage. She also wrote that she was “so blessed that the 15 years I’ve had with” the late, great rock superstar “has been spent making unforgettable memories.”
