I was planning to review some new MAC lipsticks today, but when I woke up and looked outside, I knew that it was going to be useless. It's a dark, gray and gloomy day -- and got even darker, grayer and gloomier when I checked the news. "David Bowie passed away of cancer at the age of 69." I was kind of hoping that it would be some kind of hoax, but unfortunately it wasn't. One of the most revolutionary, iconic faces in music and fashion history is no more.
Bowie has been one of my idols for a long time -- some people might still recall me proclaiming that I hoped that someone would punch me in the eye so that I could have "David Bowie eyes". One of my first blogposts featured a David Bowie T-shirt (and some very bad posing, or just very bad everything, as well). Apart from his brilliant music, Bowie also taught me that there are no rules in fashion. Always a couple of steps ahead, he wore the most insane outfits, make up and hairdos, and actually got away with it. And please, let us not forget that he managed to create the sexiest mugshot ever made (look above).
I decided to create a small post with some of my favorite Bowie-pictures, just to remind myself (and hopefully others) the insane legacy that he left behind.
