Angie And David Bowie's Edgy '70s Style (PHOTO)

Is it possible to maintain a standout style, even with an English rockstar beau who himself dons heels and makeup? Angie Bowie shows us how in this 1973 photo, evidence that edgy clothing and striking beauty made the American model anything but secondary.

Often accompanying her androgynous former husband David Bowie on worldwide tours, and serving as the inspiration for songs "The Prettiest Star" and "Golden Years," Angie's look never fell short. We love the ying-yang nature of her long-sleeved dress and short-sleeved coat, a geometric ensemble enhanced by a triangular necklace and shimmery eyeshadow. Does Duncan Jones' mom look fabulous strutting through Cafe Royal, or do you prefer the runway looks of the "Space Oddity" singer's current wife, Iman?
