David Bowie is a man with many outfits, marking changes in his sonic palette with new additions to his wardrobe. The Museum of Contemporary Art's "David Bowie Is" exhibit includes several selections from the pop chameleon's closet, including the original Ziggy Stardust getup and several costumes that were designed for the Aladdin Sane tour. Check out a preview of the fashion that was on display when the exhibit debuted at London's Victoria and Albert Museum.
