Tilda Swinton showed off her androgynous style dressed as David Bowie yesterday evening.

The actress attended the event at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London clad in a shiny silver suit, reminiscent of the UK singer’s eccentric wardrobe.

The star completed her androgynous look with slicked-back hair and translucent make-up, set off by a pale pink shimmer on her lips.

The two celebrities worked together on David’s new promo for The Stars (Are Out Tonight), with Tilda making an appearance in the artistic video.

“I've been a Bowie fan since the age of 12,” Tilda gushed to MailOnline.

“So to work with him was, well... He's my cousin.”

In the video the actress portrays David’s wife, showing their struggles as a couple as their relationship is ruined by two models, played by Saskia de Brauw and Andrej Pejic.

Tilda, 52, was joined by her artist partner Sandro Kopp and together they browsed the exhibition, taking in the performance footage of David and pieces of clothing on display.

She was overheard calling it “an amazing exhibition” and later visited the gift shop to pick up T-shirts and allegedly asked Sandro, “Shall I get one for him?”

Sandro dressed up for the occasion in a purple blazer, complete with matching tie and trousers.

Joining in the fun was Chloe Delevingne, supermodel Cara’s sister.

The pretty blonde donned a sparkling gold dress that showed off her perfect pins.

Edie Campbell also attended, dressed all in black with some cut-out detail baring her shoulders.
