Calling all Rebels...BowieBall 2014
Not sure what the hell we are talking about....except maybe, well, David Bowie
? BowieBall is the glammest, and most brilliant tribute the most provocative and larger than life rockstar and fashion innovator of all time, David Bowie.
Taking place at Le Poisson Rouge
this Sunday, Oct. 12
., everyone who is anyone (including Mick Rock, Debbie Harry, Chloe Sevigny
) is invited to the ninth annual charity event that not only celebrates the cultural icon, but raises money for God’s Love We Deliver
, an organization that improves the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illness by providing food and alleviating malnutrition.
Deryck Todd is the brain behind the whole thing, thus
Bowie-inspired attire is strongly encouraged. Channel your inner Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, The Thin White Duke or your most extreme self-expression. There wasn't much Bowie didn't try, from one-legged catsuits, voluminous tie-dye suits to embroidered dress coats...go wild!
BowieBall has been hailed as the “it affair” by New York Times. This Bowie-extravaganza fuses music, art, fashion and entertainment, bringing together some of the best in New York nightlife. Westgay's Frankie Sharp will be DJing the event, along with Justine D. Hosts include HuffPost Gay Voices Associate Editor, James Nichols, Sway’s Pebbles Russell and Sam Jones. Live performances include Tony award winner Lena Hall, Shannon Conley of "Hedwig" fame, burlesque bombshell Dirty Martini, Untitled Queen, Eric Schmalenberger of House of Yes, Lady Simon and Cher Noble.
