KATE MOSS DOES ZIGGY STARDUST

"Kate is barely recognisable as she channels David Bowie for Vogue cover"

She certainly has the striking cheekbones, not to mention a notoriously similar hunger for the life of excess. And now she's got the look too.


Kate Moss transformed herself into 1970s-era David Bowie for French Vogue.

With her blonde hair styled into a distinctive mullet, the 37-year-old model is a note-perfect copy of the Aladdin Sane character Bowie created for his 1973 album of the same name.

The record - a pun on ‘a lad insane' - was the follow-up to The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Bowie also adopted the look for his Ziggy Stardust tour in 1972 and 1973.

Miss Moss has long been a fan of the singer, who turns 65 next month. In 2003, the pair even appeared together on the front of Q magazine.


She has one of the most famous faces in the world, but is virtually unrecognisable on the latest cover of Vogue magazine with her spiky orange mullet cut and no eyebrows.


The model and the singer share piercing bright eyes and chiseled cheek bones on the shoot.


However, Kate's famous anchor tattoo on her wrist gives away her identity.


Ziggy Stardust was a concept album, written and performed by Bowie, loosely based on the story of a rock star of the same name. It is often cited as one of the best rock albums of the Seventies.


Kate - who has a well documented fondness for rock stars - is no doubt a big fan of Bowie's music. It is not the first time she has imitated his look.

The 37-year-old has appeared on the covers of various editions of Vogue more than 30 times, and for this French issue she seems to have revisited Vogue UK in May 2003.


On that cover a black and white photo of Kate was superimposed with Ziggy Stardust's famous red and blue lightening bolt.


This time she looks like she has gone even further by also adopting Bowie's spiky orange haircut - although we suspect that it just might be a wig.


The reason behind this second reincarnation is that the magazine issue is dedicated to music.


Paris Vogue's cover line states that the December edition will share Debbi Harry, Bryan Ferry, Ciara, Kanye West, Boy George, Janelle Monae, Lou Reed and Lenny Kravitz's choices of Christmas songs. Armenian-French singer Charles Aznavour's selections are also included.


The cover tops off a great year for Kate who married her rocker boyfriend, Jamie Hince, on July 1.


The model wore a stunning, vintage-inspired John Galliano dress to the wedding. The photos, taken by Mario Testino, graced the cover of US Vogue's September issue.
