David Bowie's New Music Video is a Tutorial on How to Pull Off Menswear

Though it’s been nearly a decade since David Bowie has released an album, he hasn’t skipped a beat. For “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” Bowie has enlisted the strikingly androgynous actress Tilda Swinton and two models known for their gender-bending appeal: Andre Pejic and Saskia de Brauw.

In the video, Bowie and Swinton play a happily married couple whose world is turned upside down by their rock-star neighbors, played by Pejic and de Brauw. In the fashion world, Pejic and de Brauw have made waves by modeling clothing for the opposite gender.

Some theorize that the inspiration for the video came from the physical similarities between Bowie and Swinton. One thing’s for sure: if you’re looking for ideas on how to pull off a menswear look, you’ve come to the right place.
