Tilda Swinton’s CFDA tribute to Bowie

“And so the story goes, they wore the clothes...”

Last night at the CFDA Awards at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, actress Tilda Swinton paid emotional tribute to David Bowie while collecting the statuette for the BOARD OF DIRECTORS’ TRIBUTE to David Bowie.
Star of Lazarus, Michael C. Hall, performed a visually exciting rendition of Changes with a trio of Ziggyettes...more of which, later.
Tilda read the moving letter to Bowie, introducing it by explaining she was there on behalf of his wife, Iman: “Tonight is David and Iman's 24th wedding anniversary,” She said. “And Iman has asked me to come tonight in her place, to thank you for this great tribute to David, and to send you all her love, and I'm honoured to do so.”

You can watch Tilda’s speech here.

And here’s the correct version of her reading of the letter to David in full (some sites have misreported it):

Dear Dave,

The CFDA have the great good sense and elegance to tip their caps at you this year.

There's pretty much no year out of the last forty that this would not have been a good idea. But this time around, it feels like an apt opportunity, given this stage in the proceedings, to remind us all how very much a part of us you always were and always will be.

At the request of your beautiful Missus, I've come to collect it for her - for you.

These kind people - the fanciest fashion people on the planet - are giving you their highest prize - their directors' tribute - to honour and to thank you for all the shapes you’ve thrown, from start to finish, through all your years, golden and otherwise, all your changes, ever moving forward, all your colours, all your magic, all your vim and vigour, all your glory, all ways and always.

You checked out early and we are still finding things you left in the drawers and looking for a forwarding address

But you are still hanging signs in the sky, in the trees, for us and we are so grateful for every one.

We want to tell you that we miss you but how very happy we all are that you came by... And that we are getting used to resting on your stardust in your absence.

Once upon a time you gave us a freak for freaks: now and forever more, in our missing you (and this is a good thing), you have brought out the freak in everyone.

You tipped us that wink from the first: one man's freak is another man's free.

Difference and change are all we ever have to rely upon, and always were.

Thank you, chum, for brightening our horizon. For inspiring and exhilarating and enlightening our times. How lucky we are who turned up since you were first here. Thank you for your happiness and your eternal Bona-ness and zhoosh.

You are our hero. Forever and ever.

Everyone says hi.


Your Tilly
