Bowie looking young and fantastic  

I'm sure some of you have seen these pictures, but I hadn't until today, so I'm sure many others have not either....

Beautiful pictures of Bowie and Iman for the hilfiger fashions advertising campaign. Just how sexy, young and beautiful can Bowie look at his age?

Unfortunatly those pictures are heavily photoshopped. But excluding all those horrible moustache-pictures of him, I think he still generally looks incredibly good.

Re: Bowie looking young and fantastic new [re: icarusboy]  

This I don't get. I thought the whole point of recruiting middle aged icons was because they are middle aged and can better appeal to a middle aged market.. the trying to airbrush twenty years away kind of defeats the point.. that and the originals would probably look better anyway [less mattelish].

Im not a fan of these photographs, they look very false.

To me it makes no sense, why make someone look younger to sell clothes? madness in my opinion.

On the other hand, perhaps one of these photographs could have been used for the cover of Reality

You ain't seen nothing yet. [re: icarusboy]  

Just to show how far airbrushing can really go, two Bowie pictures from 1999 (from Little Oogie's):

Image 1 / Image 2

I admit that purely as pictures, without knowing who they feature, etc. those are good-looking pictures. But we all know that Bowie was 52 at the time. No-one looks like that at the age of 52. In the end, both pictures look pathetic because they are trying to deny the man's age.

Sys, I think the Survive video has the same effect.... He looks too young in it (i know there is a look-a-like on majority of the video, but when he is in it, he looks like he 20 something)

maybe this wan the point for hours? maybe it was a yearning to be young when he knew he is old.

How can somebody look like a lesbian, if said person is a male? He could surely look effeminate- or like a female- but how could he look like a lesbian?



I had such a steady diet of riot control gas that I became a junkie, & I still get nostalgic for it on slow nights.
