David Bowie: 25 of his most iconic fashion moments

As the world mourns the loss of one of the most pioneering artists of our time, David Bowie – who died aged 69 following a battle with cancer – we take a look back at some of his most iconic fashion moments.

Bowie was a maverick of reinvention, creating alter egos including the flame-haired Ziggy Stardust and the melancholy Thin White Duke.

Bowie pioneered gender-bending in fashion, wearing tight, androgynous bodysuits and make-up. 

His flamboyant dress sense was inspired by artists and designers alike, defying the status quo and presenting a figure whose public image was inseparable from the music he created.

We’ve selected just a few of his numerous brilliant fashion moments for which he will always be remembered.

Rest in peace, you fashionable genius.
