Who doesn’t want to look like David Bowie?

David Bowie

“I re-invented my image so many times that I’m in denial that I was originally an overweight Korean woman.”

I am definitely not the only one, that thinks David Bowie is the most stylish man ever….. Whatever persona he became during his career, they were all incredible stylishly dressed, fantastically groomed and so well made-up. Some of his looks have become iconic.

Fashion editors, designers and photographers have often been inspired by David Bowie. In this post I want to share some the stories, photographs, a movie and an exhibition based on his style though the years.

An extraordinary exhibition charting the career of British singer David Bowie will open at the  Victoria&Albert museum in London next March. The V&A is going for the bigger picture and  has announced details of the first museum retrospective for a man who is one of the most influential performers of modern times. The “David Bowie is” exhibition will feature handwritten lyrics, original  costumes and set designs alongside the 65-year-old star’s own instruments. “David Bowie is a true icon, more relevant to popular culture now than ever,”  said V&A director Martin Roth. David Bowie Is, launching on 23rd March 2013, will be running for four months.
