PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — David Bowie posed in a black fedora and well-tailored suit in photos posted just 2 days before the iconic artist died from cancer at 69.

The final pictures in the ever-evolving looks of David Bowie were taken by his longtime photographer Jimmy King, the Daily Mail reported. Bowie was posing in a promotional shoot for his final album, Blackstar.

Britain’s biggest music awards will pay tribute to David Bowie at next month’s ceremony.

Brit Awards chairman Max Lousada said Tuesday that the Feb. 24 show at London’s O2 Arena would include “a fitting tribute to one of our greatest icons.”

He said Bowie was “a visionary and ground-breaking pioneer … (who) has inspired generations of musicians and will continue to shape music for many years to come.”

The enigmatic star withdrew from the limelight in his later years, quietly releasing two final albums in 2013 and last week.

In 2014 he was named best male artist at the Brits and sent supermodel Kate Moss to collect the trophy, dressed in one of Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust outfits from the 1970s.
