Earlier this week, the world said goodbye to its prettiest star. David Bowie, iconic musician, offbeat artist, fashion and beauty muse passed, leaving the world of rock n’ roll in a tragic state. Bowie and his alter-ego Ziggy Stardust had a trailblazing effect on culture, reaching far beyond music and inspiring generations of teens. The mullet, glam costumes, lots of makeup, and groundbreaking music gave kids everywhere the courage to think and dress differently. His shape-shifting style provided the springboard for many catwalk and editorial shoot and will be an oft recycled theme in the future. To continue the celebration of his incredible life, I pulled together some of my favorite looks inspired by Mr. Stardust himself. They are in the notes. Shine on, David.  –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

Androgynous haircuts, chalking, tousled styling, and disconnection are great ways to integrate punk into your style. Click the notes to for more tips on incorporating this trend. –– Laura Martin
