David Bowie dominates Brit Awards…from a distance

How do you steal a show’s limelight without even turning up? That’s exactly what David Bowie did at the Brit Awards. The rock legend was named best British male artist but sent his friend Kate Moss along to accept the accolade on his behalf. We’ll have a wrap-up of all the rest of the gongs and show highlight’s, including One Direction’s Harry Styles "toilet incident".

Also on the show: it’s one of the most read and translated books in French but many don’t realise "The Little Prince" was actually born in New York. We also meet the people behind the lens at a quirky photo exhibition here in Paris that features pension-age pom-pom girls, the children of Transylvania and a fair few nudes!

 

Plus we’ll give you a sneak peak at some of the looks coming out of Milan Fashion Week.
