    Default How the Thin White Duke (David Bowie) got his figure back

    How the Thin White Duke got his figure back


    After his heart scare, David Bowie took a year out to revitalise mind and body.


    The result, as shown in pictures 12 months ago, was a rosy glow, a bulkier figure and even a double chin.
    But while the rest may have done wonders for his health, he clearly felt it did nothing for his image. Scroll down for more ...

    David Bowie has returned to his usual gaunt self after gaining weight on his year off


    Yesterday came the return of the Thin White Duke, the persona he adopted in the late 1970s. As Bowie, 60, stepped out at a fashion industry event in New York, he appeared to have shed pounds, and rediscovered the wiry frame that has epitomised his image over four decades.
    Dashing in black tie and with his model wife Iman on his arm, he looked svelte and streamlined. Scroll down for more ...

    Three years ago, Bowie underwent an emergency operation to clear a blocked artery. Fifteen months later, he spoke of the drastic lifestyle changes he had made. "I decided to take a year off and do nothing. Now I go to the gym, I donít drink and I am feeling really good."

    That woman is pure elegance and class. What a FAB dress!!!! He looks a bit pale but that's nothing new. He's reinvented himself more times than Madonna.

    I love him, I don't care how old or bloated he is. And Iman really is GORGEOUS. She's beautiful.

    ....that was probably water retention if he was having heart problems, not actual fat......heart failure (not an attack) causes the heart and lungs not to remove water from the body as well and the fluid backs up into your tissues making you appear enormous.

    One of my co-workers was in congestive heart failure and once they put him on diuretics, he lost 80 lbs......in two weeks....all of fluid......

    They are such an amazing couple. I give them all the props in the world for sticking together in the crazy land of entertainment.

    Yeah, could be. He had a "puffiness" that didn't look like simply fat. He looks like the type who wouldn't run to fat easily anyway.

    They are a very elegant couple and I love both. Has anyone seen photos of their daughter?
