We lost David Bowie in January 2016, one of the most loved, creative, and inspirational individuals of all time. It would be unfair to call him just a musician without taking into account his unique fashion style. In the same vein, to refer to him as a rock star would not do justice to his acting career. Wherever he went and whatever he did, David Bowie’s clothes, as well as David Bowie himself, left an impression. So we’ve chosen one of his most iconic looks to transform into a Halloween costume. In the “Life on Mars?” video, he wore a blue suit with orange hair. Read on for more information!
