David Bowie from Life on Mars

In the music video for the 1971 single “Life on Mars”, glam rock star David Bowie is dressed in a turquoise “ice-blue” designer suit and heavy makeup. This unique look presents yet another facet of Bowie alongside his personas Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke.

The Thin White Duke

The Thin White Duke, like the better known Ziggy Stardust, was one of David Bowie’s personas, featured in his album Station to Station. He’s a sharply dressed individual known for throwing darts in lovers’ eyes.

Ziggy Stardust

David Bowie took fashion to a new level when he unveiled his alter-ego Ziggy Stardust. Part rock star, part alien-being, it takes more than just a colorful unitard and elaborate makeup to pull off this look. You need the confidence to go along with it. Of course, it also doesn’t hurt if you can sing.

Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury was the frontman for Queen best known for his hits “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Don’t Stop Me Now”, and “We Are the Champions”. Mercury was also well known for his stage performances and flamboyant outfits. If you’re feeling courageous, you could try on one of the many form fitting leotards that he wore on stage.
