1971: David Bowie in dresses Chris September 17, 2012 1970-1979, Music 8 CommentsFavourited 1634 times Add to favourites 8 Responses Michael September 18, 2012 Dress? I think not. Experimentation in clothing style for men and women was big then as it is now. Bowie was no exception. I’ll accept most anything, but I draw the line at Walmartians and “pants-on-the-ground” bullshit….. Reply al September 18, 2012 He somehow reminds me of Carol King in these pictures. Reply Miss Romwell September 18, 2012 This being Bowie, he totally carries it off. Reply Mr Poppins September 20, 2012 David looks amazing in those creations! Reply Roofy September 27, 2012 Enjoy his work on film and photography always interesting perspecttives – this a gender uno momento Reply Michael Fierstos September 30, 2012 I was a young gay boy (13/14) in Indiana, USA when I heard a song from this LP on a NYC radio station (could only get in the middle of the night when it was raining). I ordered the LP and loved every song, still do. Have been a huge fan from the first song…. Reply Jen October 18, 2012 I was expecting drag. This is not drag. This is not even “feminine”, really – it is true androgyny, or perhaps closer to genderlessness. Bowie doesn’t look camp or grotesque or silly. He looks awesome.
