David's Bowie's widow, Iman, stepped out for the first time on Tuesday since losing her legendary husband to cancer on January 10. The 60-year-old supermodel model was spotted walking her dog in New York City.

Iman, who was married to the "Starman" singer for over 23 years, was photographed walking the streets wearing a chic black coat and jeans. The brunette beauty shielded her eyes with a pair of sunglasses while out for her stroll.

While Iman shared a number of photographs of her husband in the days leading up to his death, she has since been silent, with the family only speaking out to thank the public for their support and to confirm plans for a private memorial service. She has not returned to social media, and her lifestyle website, www.destinationiman.com has a message which reads, "Life is a constant adventure" and promises a return in February 2016.

The beauty icon is said to be staying strong in the wake of her loss and for the sake of the couple's 15-year-old daughter Alexandria. Longtime friend Bethann Hardison previously told People magazine, "She's fine. We're fine. It comes in waves, you know. He's a great loss – not just a loss as an artist, but as a human."

On David's official Facebook page, his family wrote that he will be remembered in a service that pays tribute to a "beloved husband, father and friend."

"The family of David Bowie is currently making arrangements for a private ceremony celebrating the memory of their beloved husband, father and friend," the statement read. "They ask once again that their privacy be respected at this most sensitive of times."

They added, "We are overwhelmed by and grateful for the love and support shown throughout the world."
