“Like some cat from Japan”
Congratulations to David Bowie on the announcement that he is the recipient of the British Male Solo Artist at this year’s @BRIT Awards.
Kate Moss collected the statuette on Bowie’s behalf, looking incredible in one of the better known Ziggy stage outfits at the ceremony at the O2 Arena in London this evening.
The so-called 'rabbit' costume worn by Kate tonight (properly called “Woodland Creatures”) was created by Japanese designer, Kansai Yamamoto.
Kate wore the original costume which was first unveiled by Bowie on August 19, 1972 at the legendary Ziggy Stardust show at The Rainbow in North London.
Following an introduction from Noel Gallagher, who has heaped praise upon David Bowie himself more than once in the past (thanks Noel), Kate read out David Bowie’s acceptance speech, which went something like this...
“Lovely. In Japanese myth, the rabbits on my old costume that Kate’s wearing actually live on the moon, Kate comes from Venus and I'm from Mars. So that's nice!!
I’m completely delighted to have a BRIT for being the best male. But I am, aren't I Kate?
I think it's a great way to end the day.
Thank you very, very much.
Scotland please stay with us.”
David’s son, Duncan Jones, @ManMadeMoon, joined the celebrations with this tweet: “Dad done good! A Brit! Not quite a Bafta, but... ;) proud as punch. ”
Congratulations to Arctic Monkeys who won Mastercard British Album Of The Year with AM.
