STYLE ICON: DAVID BOWIE
Tuesday 12th January 2016 | Eva
David Bowie was without doubt, the master of self-reinvention.
He changed his style uncountable times, probably more than any other musician in history.
On stage he was Ziggy Stardust, whom he said goodbye to, in 1973 with a retirement party.
Not only a style icon but also an influencer, he was experimenting, creating and having fun with clothes, accessories, hairstyle, make-up and costumes (some of them inspired by Stanley Kubrick`s A Clockwork Orange); and most of all: LIFE!!
He was the symbol of real self-expression, and he knew more than everyone else how powerful fashion could be in communicating individuality and provoking.
Ambiguity was his best accessory which he wore with the best do-not-care attitude.
Epic are: his eye patches outfit, his one leg jumpsuit and the Alexander McQueen Union Jack trench coat.
He shaved his eyebrows (during a night of perdition), but then turned it into a trend and got everyone`s amusement.
How enchanting should have been, looking at Bowie`s eyes, distracted by those double-colors and his charm of a complete artist.
He has been evolving through the years, trying on possibly anything.
And he was seen as a role model by man and women.
