Artist Carlotta Hester got a chance to try on David Bowie’s gold leather jacket that he wore on the Glass Spider Tour in 1987. That jacket, along with gold leather pants and belt, as well as a gold shirt, comprise the very rare signed stage suit being offered December 10th in Sotheby’s New York Rock & Roll auction.
