David Bowie may has won the Best British Male award at this year’s Brit Awards – but he was way to cool to turn up, sending Kate Moss in his place. Kate walked down the stage looking so cool wearing original Bowie’s original Ziggy Stardust costume. Bowie originally wore the playsuit for a performance at London’s Rainbow Theatre in Finsbury Park back in August 1972.

The costume, which is called ‘Woodland Creatures’ but is also known as his ‘rabbit costume’, was designed by Kansai Yamamoto – one of the singer’s favourite designers.


Kate said some David’s words on stage…

Good evening ladies and gentleman, David has asked me to say this,” Kate said as she addressed the crowd.

“In Japanese myth the rabbits from my old costume that Kate’s wearing live on the moon.Kate comes from Venus and I 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 and Scotland – stay with us,” she added before holding the award up in the air.
