David Bowie, Marion Cotillard  and Gary Oldman in the video for The Next Day.

The video was directed by Floria Sigismundi – the photographer and filmmaker  – who has directed Bowie before. She also directed The Runaways and the video for Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors”.
Bowie and Oldman previously joined forces in 1995, when they recorded a duet of Bowie’s “You’ve Been Around” for guitarist Reeves Gabrels’ album The Sacred Squall Of Now. They worked together again in 1996 on the Jean-Michel Basquiat biopic Basquiat with Bowie portraying Andy Warhol and Oldman in the role of a fellow painter loosely based on Julian Schnabel.

“Had to get the train
From Potzdamer platz
You never knew that
That I could do that Just walking the dead

Sitting in the Dschungel
On Nurnberger strasse
A man lost in time near KaDeWe
Just walking the dead

Where are we now?
Where are we now?
The moment you know
You know, you know”
(David Bowie)

David Bowie from Esquire (Russia), April 2010. Photographed by Gavin Evans. Such a stylish man!

Why men don’t embrace fashion and style is a puzzle. Still, there isn’t much hope when many men can’t even be bothered to clean their shoes!

When meeting a man, where do women look first? No, not there! First, the eyes followed by a glance at the shoes (polished or unpolished, ugly sneakers or stylish boots) and the eyes move upward. First impressions count!

Oh, David, what were you thinking? David & Iman Bowie in the worst swimwear I have seen! And was he auditioning for a role in ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’? He is usually so stylish and has an almost feminine approach to dressing and fashion. Oh David, don’t you know the past always comes back to haunt you?
