David Bowie will always be remembered for changing the face of British pop rock culture. From his outlandish avant-garde fashion looks to his statement make up. Remember the face painting and shaved eyebrows? Oh yes, Mr Bowie was setting and changing trends before the likes of Madonna and Lady Gaga.
He has not only changed the face of music but his contribution to fashion has won the hearts of many. The most iconic and stand out fashion moment has to be without a doubt his alter ego Ziggy Stardust. Even making it onto the catwalks, most memorably the Jean Paul Gaultier show, which saw the best Ziggy Stardust, looks modeled on his Spring Summer 13 catwalk. We all remember when supermodel Kate Moss wore the exact costume David Bowie wore as Ziggy to the 2014 Brits. From the flame red hair, daring theatrical costumes and dramatic make up Ziggy Stardust is secured in fashion history.
Then who could forget when David went from punk to on screen hottie for his role in the film Labyrinth. We were all wooed by his charm and ability to interchange from musical star to actor with ease; he soon became everyone’s guilty pleasure. We mean who could forget his costume as the gobbling king? We sure can’t.
David Bowie is without a doubt an icon in every way, and will always be remembered as the face of glam rock. From his gender bending stage looks, in those sky scrapper heels and asymmetric cuts. Sashaying across the stage in daring patent leather, to his bold colour block suits and platinum hair. David Bowie will forever remain a music fashion icon in everyones eyes.
