The Real Man Who Fell To Earth; a zeitgeist of pop culture,  David Bowie is now the brightest of stars above.

From the Glam-dripped Ziggy to the slick, bewitching  Thin White Duke; an artist and terrific innovator on and off stage. You don’t have to be a hardcore fan to see how Bowie was a king of self-invention; paving the way for others in terms of sexuality, creativity and showmanship. Following the tragic news yesturday of his death, to celebrate his (omni-present) legacy we’ve put a snapshot of images exemplifying his style.
