David Bowie won Best British Male at last night’s Brit awards. Kate Moss collected the trophy on his behalf, wearing one of Ziggy Stardust’s original outfits (pictured left). The ‘Woodland Creatures’ costume was designed by Kansai Yamamoto and worn at Bowie’s concert at The Rainbow Theatre on August 19th 1972.
‘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? Yes. I think it's a great way to end the day. Thank you very, very much.’ – Kate Moss reading David Bowie's acceptance speech
