David Bowie lived many lives. He was completely capable of transforming from blues-loving Davie Jones to rock & roll alien Ziggy Stardust to the dapper Thin White Duke with ease. Even until his death in January of 2016, the singer, performer, actor and fashion icon continued to reinvent his image and sound, ending his career with the dark, reflective Blackstar that served as a parting gift for fans who did not yet know about his struggle with cancer. 

Over the years, Bowie's fashion was a reflection of his personal rebirth, the killing of his past and the beginning of a new era. Take a look a back at the development of the artist in the nearly 50 years of evolution.
