David Bowie Style File

1973 Album cover shoot for Aladdin Sane, photographed by Brian Duffy. The lightning bolt represented the duality of the mind, although Bowie later explained that the "lad insane" of the album's title track was inspired by his brother Terry, who was diagnosed as a schizophrenic.

Technically a single cover, but this is too excellent not to include. Bowie's 1974 single Rebel Rebel, taken from his legendary Diamond Dogs release. Bowie poses in full Ziggy Stardust get up, red shag/mullet, knee high platforms, shoulder pads and skin tight bodysuit, perfectly applied makeup and the iconic lightning bolt. Seriously cool.
