And I looked and frowned and the Moss-Star was me...

Having lost the opportunity to feature the world's most beautiful man on its cover in 1973, VOGUE has since made up for lost time by featuring one of the world's most beautiful women as that man...twice!

Of course, I'm talking about Kate Moss as David Bowie and I'm sure you all remember the excellent Nick Knight cover session that VOGUE featured back in May 2003, wherein Ms Moss modelled a few original Ziggy/Aladdin Sane outfits to stunning effect.

As you can see from the December 2012 edition of the world's most famous fashion magazine at the top of this piece, Kate has had another bash at the Ziggy look and I think you'll agree that the overall effect is even better this time.

She's even utilised the anchor motive on her arm which Ziggy proudly displayed on his visage for a fleeting moment in August, 1972...
