Supermodel Iman was bullied as a child because of her long neck and admits she is still "neurotic" about it. The Somalian-born wife of rock icon David Bowie tried to hide her most prominent feature when she first arrived in America, even though everyone was fascinated by her unique look.

The 50-year-old says, "Lots of Somalis have very long necks, but mine is unusually thin so I was really picked on. I used to wear my collar up to try to hide it. When I came to America in 1975 the first thing that was celebrated about me was my neck. It is trademark, though I have to say it's very uncomfortable at times and I still don't like to draw attention to it."
