Kate Moss Channels David Bowie's Ginger Mullet for French Vogue

So Emmanuelle Alt has substituted the ‘porno chic’ of Carine Roitfeld’s day at Paris Vogue with her own, more rock n’ roll visual language. For her latest trick, she has got the evergreen model and Brit icon, Kate Moss, to reprise her sometime role as rock’s glammest chameleon, David Bowie, on the January cover of her mag.

Wonderful. Iconic as it will doubtless be viewed, it’s not the most original idea in the history of publishing. Kate has already appeared on the cover of British Vogue a few years back as the Aladdin Sane album cover, although on that occasion it was with the help of photoshop rather than the ginger wig that you see before you, that Kate was transformed.

In fact, that wasn’t even the first time an imaginative magazine editor has spotted the parallels between Britain’s foremost supermodel and the original gender-bending Seventies crooner. Back in 2003, music mag Q ran a lengthy feature where La Moss interviewed the Thin White Duke himself in New York, which was accompanied by a Blow-Up inspired shoot of the pair by model turned fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth.

The latest Paris Vogue photo represents Bowie back in the early Seventies, at the height of his cross-dressing fame, when he was styled by his then wife, Angie Bowie and before he was The Man Who Fell To Earth in Nicholas Roeg’s film about a lost alien. Aah. We don’t need any excuse to write about David Bowie, do we?
