is a legend, an entrepreneur, and a style icon. She is also the host, along with Isaac Mizrahi, of Bravo’s “The Fashion Show” — premiering Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT. She’s so insanely fabulous that she has even designed a home collection — because who doesn’t want to live in her house? But who is the woman behind the flawlessly glamorous facade? Read her interview in the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

Simon Doonan: How many times a day do you Google yourself?

Iman: Every five minutes. I simply can’t take my eyes off myself. Kidding! I would rather Google other people than Google myself.

SD: Have you ever thrown a cell phone at anyone?

Iman: No! And if anyone threw one at me, it would come right back at them like a boomerang. If I feel frustrated in a situation, I take a deep breath and walk away.

SD: You seem like an optimist and a positive force, but you must have done something appalling in your past.

Iman: I was once very rude to a young model. Just before I retired from modeling, I was at this shoot. The photographer said he was reading a biography of Marie Antoinette. The young model asked us, “What agency is she with?” [Shrieks of derisive laughter] We made fun of her, of course! When we were leaving, she said to me, “I hope I look as good as you when I’m your age,” and I said, “Don’t worry, darling, you won’t.” And then later I felt bad.

SD: Do you and David ever fight? [Iman has been married to rock god David Bowie for 18 years.]

Iman: David doesn’t fight. He is English, so he just stays quiet. I’m the screamer. Then he always makes me laugh. It’s like cabaret. I keep him entertained too. I still fancy him — totally! — after all these years.

SD: Which Bowie song do you adore?

Iman: So many! “Heroes” especially. “Suffragette City” always gets me dancing with my little girl, Lexi [age 10].
