The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London has announced plans for an exhibition next year devoted to possibly the coolest chameleon in British music and fashion: David Bowie. Fans of the Starman nevertheless got a taste of Bowie when the V&A exhibited his natty, knitted, one-legged early 1970s stage costume, designed by Kansai Yamamoto, in the recent exhibition "British Design 1948-2012". Previous pop stars given the V&A treatment include Kylie Minogue and the Supremes.
