R.I.P David Bowie. The legendary rock-star lost his battle to throat cancer. Bowie was not only famous as a Rocker but was also one of the pioneer of Punk -Fashion and raised a storm with his red mullet. Will miss you Ziggy!
Stars from the ‘Music World’ have been the favourite with Fashion Designers when it comes to be their Muse. We have seen Pete Doherty being idolised by Heidi Slimane of Dior, Amy Winehouse’s Beehive Hairdo inspiring Karl Lagerfeld and most recently Lady Gaga almost resurrecting the forgotten label – Theirry Mugler.
David Bowie the Rockstar with the famous Mullet seems like the Fashion’s Muse for the year 2012. The January 2012 issue of Vogue, Germany shot by another Rocker – Bryan Adams – completely nails Bowie’s glamrock sensibility. Daphne Guinness is almost unrecognizable in a red mullet, glam makeup and gold sequins, the typically goth socialite in a David Bowie-inspired editorial.
It was Kate Moss who channelled Bowie on the cover of Vogue Paris’s 2011 music issue. In the May 2011 issue of Numero, model Edita Vilkeviciute did her best impression of David Bowie, sporting lightning bolt face makeup for the shoot. Even Balenciaga’s Spring/Summer 2012 campaign, featuring a mullet-ed Anja Rubik is giving us Bowie vibes.
