Power Couple: Tilda Swinton meets David Bowie

In our August 2011 issue, Tilda Swinton claimed that she and David Bowie share the same “planetary DNA.” (Our cover, in which the androgynous actress appears like the Thin White Duke incarnate, would go far to support that claim.) It’s been a long time coming, but the two alien-ish style icons, seemingly separated at birth, have finally partnered up, appearing together in Bowie’s latest music video “The Stars (Are Out Tonight).” Directed by Floria Sigismondi, the six-minute film portrays the pair as a happily married couple whose world is torn apart by their younger and similar-looking neighbors, played by models Andrej Pejic, Saskia De Brauw, and Iselin Steiro. Indeed, it is as brilliant and strange as one would expect.
