Kate Moss Celebrated Her 42nd Birthday With A Tribute to David Bowie

Photographer Mert Alas documented the affair...


After David Bowie passed away just days before Kate Moss's 42nd birthday, the beautiful-as-ever supermodel knew exactly how to pay tribute to her friend. On Saturday night, she hosted a private, Bowie-themed birthday party at her home in the Cotswolds (an area in Southern England with lots o' fancy homes). A source told Daily Mail, "Kate was devastated to hear about David's death. So guests will channel their inner Bowie and '80s attire. She wants the party to be a celebration of his life as well as hers. It's going to be wild." Boy George performed at the rager, tweeting about the "lovely night" the following morning:

Last week, Moss was spotted wearing a David Bowie t-shirt in London several days after his death. In February of 2014, she donned his iconic 1972 'Woodland Creatures' Ziggy Stardust playsuit to accept a Brit Award on his behalf.
