Through The Years In Photos

More than a legendary singer-songwriter and actor, David Bowie is a fashion icon too. In fact, you can still see traces of his influence in today’s artists. He was always original, unique, innovative and he likes to experiment which is why he blessed us with the existence of his alter ego, Ziggy Stardust.

He’s a rebel when it comes to pretty much anything but even more so in fashion. He can go from looking sleek and preppy to extra flashy and colorful real quick. He’s not one to shy away from anything fashionably risky. He’s had several transformations over the course of his five-decade career and it goes without saying that there were some hits and misses.
