“Became the special man”

The latest Vogue is on the shelves and it includes a lovely piece by Designer Luella Bartley entitled The Prettiest Star.

Here’s the introduction:

Designer Luella Bartley returns to fashion to celebrate the legendary music icon David Bowie. As the Victoria and Albert Museum gets ready to pay homage to the musician with a dedicated exhibition, Bartley explores his legacy, his influence and why he remains king.

Here's an excerpt from the piece:

“He changed my life.” That quote could be attributed to hordes of famous musicians, fashion designers, artists, writers, accountants, florists and politicians for whom Bowie has been the conduit for a huge cultural, musical, sexual and aesthetic release. And it’s sincere: he did change their lives. He brought individuality to the masses. Call him what you will – teacher, prophet, rebel, inspirator, star man – he’s simply part of the furniture round at our house, like a benign spiritual presence that prods you into creative action, reminding you to be different. And if you think I'm obsessive, you should meet my husband.

The March edition of Vogue is available now (#MarchVogue) as both the traditional bulky hard copy magazine and in the storage-friendly iPad format.
