David Bowie‘s daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones has inadvertently channelled her famous father’s signature style in a sweet throwback snap.
Alexandria, known as Lexi, 20, took to her Instagram on Friday to share a sweet picture of herself when she was younger in a punk red wig and a ripped black t-shirt.
She accessorised her bold fancy-dress look with a black choker necklace and bracelet and wore a slick of vibrant rouge lipstick.

But she seemed to inadvertently channel her late father’s iconic Ziggy Stardust look with her dress-up, matching his signature orange mullet with her bright wig.
The Life on Mars singer was well-known for his bold style both on-and-off the stage, with Ziggy Stardust, David’s glam alter-ego, being his most recognisable look.
The character of Ziggy was an omnisexual alien rock star, with David’s fictional plot following humanity’s final five years of existence, with a wild Ziggy arriving to deliver a message of hope.
His studio album, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, tells the story of the fictional rockstar, who is ultimately destroyed on stage by his own fans.

And his daughter Lexi appeared to follow in his rock-and-roll footsteps in the throwback snap, as her punk attire was seemingly inspired by Ziggy’s look.
Lexi is a budding artist based in California and is selling her artworks on Depop for up to $250.
She is the child of the Space Oddity hitmaker and Somali fashion model Iman, who first met in 1990 at a dinner party.
After her birth, it was said that she helped her father put his workaholic attitude ‘into perspective’ and give him the will to stay healthy after his first heart attack.
David also had a son, Duncan Jones, from a previous marriage while Imran shares her daughter Zulekha Haywood with a former love.

It has been almost five years since David shockingly passed away at the age of 69, on January 10, 2016, after an 18-month battle with cancer.
Iman married the English rocker in a romantic ceremony in Lausanne, Switzerland in April 1992 which was later formalised in a wedding hosted in Florence in June.
She previously revealed how she did not want Lexi to follow her into modelling or becoming a superstar child of a famous couple, like many of her peers.
In a 2018 interview with Net A Porter, Iman, 64, said: ‘Every agency, every designer, called me to say: “If she wants to, we’d love for her to model for us.”

‘I said: “No, she doesn’t.” I know why they wanted to her to model – it’s because she is David Bowie’s daughter.
‘She says I am overprotective. But I told her, this can all wait, it isn’t going anywhere.
‘Have a life that is private while you can, because one day soon it is going to be public, so enjoy this.’
Iman and Lexi remain very close and back in May, Lexi shared an emotional post after revealing she hadn’t seen her mum for six months.

Lexi was stuck in Los Angeles during the coronavirus pandemic while her supermodel mother was at her home in New York.
In a Mother’s Day post, Bowie’s youngest child appealed to others to follow the lockdown guidelines so she could see her family again soon.
‘Everyone please stay inside I haven’t seen my mom for 6 months because we live on opposite coasts and it is very difficult to leave ny right now but I’m a child and I miss her dearly so pls be party poopers this one time so it doesn’t take 2 f***ing years to see her again thank you!’ she wrote.
The two were later reunited in New York.
