Kate Moss transforms into David Bowie at Brit Awards and collects his gong in iconic Ziggy Stardust costume
|Kate Moss and Noel Gallagher - what a combination|
David Bowie has won the Best British Male prize at this year's Brit Awards - but he was way to cool to turn up, sending Kate Moss in his place.
As his "representative on earth" Kate walked to the stage looking cooler than cool wearing original Bowie's original Ziggy Stardust costume - first worn by the icon at his 1972 Rainbow Concert.
Presenting the award, Noel Gallagher, looking particularly glam in his jeans and trademark jacket, told theaudience: "You didn't think he would actually be here? He is too cool for this s**t"
Stunner Kate walked onto stage and read her pal's words.
Entering into the Scottish Independence debate, Kate said: "Stay with us Scotland!"
Twitter seemed to be shocked by the 40-year-old's words.
One quipped: "Who knew she could say more than 'Get The London Look."
The Ziggy Stardust icon shocked the world when he returned in January 2013 with his latest album The Next Day, and it was enough to earn him the coveted trophy.
The reclusive rocker faced competition from rising stars Tom Odell, John Newman and Jake Bugg - and as expected, his experience shone through.
It was expected Bowie would get the nod, and we reckon the Brits made the right choice in recognising his incredible return to the UK music scene.
What is surprising is that the British Male gong is only his third-ever Brit Award since 1984 - and his first came in the same category in 1996.
Despite an amazingly illustrious and influential career, he's only picked up one other prize at the annual event, back in 1996 - although it was a special Outstanding Contribution to British Music trophy.
Unfortunately for the 67-year-old star, he wasn't able to continue his success and make it two wins out of two, losing out to Arctic Monkeys as their record AM earned them the MasterCard British Album of the Year gong.
Departing Brits host James Corden will have been delighted by Bowie's triumph, after he admitted he was rooting for the legendary singer.
Speaking in the build-up to the show, he said: "I don’t know who will get the award. Nobody could argue if David Bowie won something – in a way it would be great if it was somebody older rather than young."
Arctic Monkeys took home two top prizes as they emerged clear winners at the Brit Awards 2014 on Wednesday night.
The Fluorescent Adolescent band won best British Group along with the MasterCard British Album of the Year prize for their record AM.
And although our boys in One Direction missed out on the British Single and Group prizes, they still manage to take home two awards - even though Harry Styles almost missed out on collecting the first as he was in the loo.
Their overwhelming worldwide popularity was recognised for the second year in a row as they accepted the Global Success gong, meaning they're still the only act to receive it. They also picked up the award for Best Video, voted for on Twitter on the night.
Meanwhile, Ellie Goulding's two nominations in the British Single category couldn't earn her a gong - but she triumphed over Jessie J, Birdy, Laura Marling and Laura Mvula to win the British Female Solo Artist trophy.
For the singles prize, the Burn singer lost out to Rudimental, whose hit Waiting All Night - featuring Ella Eyre - was enough to get them the prize.
Meanwhile, rock quartet Bastille built on the amazing success of their debut album Bad Blood as they were deservedly honoured with the British Breakthrough Act award.
Following on from an awe-inspiring performance at the Super Bowl earlier this month, the incredible Bruno Mars beat off competition from the likes of Eminem and Justin Timberlake to be given the International Male Solo Artist award.
Leading the way for the girls, underdog Lorde picked up the prize for International Female Solo Artist - while electronic duo Daft Punk took home the International Group gong.
Finally, it had already been announced that Critics' Choice Sam Smith would be collecting his prize on the night.
