It’s fitting that the most widely recognized picture of Bowie is of his face graced with a lightning bolt. His talent was like a flash of brilliance — illuminating the world with its genius. A true innovator, he often changed guises, creating a spectrum of bold fashion imagery. Whether it was androgynous or otherworldly, he had a profound understanding of fashion and performance as works of art. His alter egos — Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke — are cultural icons in their own right. While best known for an incredibly eclectic music catalog, his visionary talents were also on full display in his art, acting, business ventures and, of course, fashion sense. A 2013 BBC poll result crowned him “the best dressed Briton in history.” A brilliant talent who inspired millions, he is often remembered and greatly missed. Here is a fashion tribute to the late, great David Bowie.
