Listen to David Bowie on iHeartRadio

David Bowie is getting recognition for his fashion sense. 

The rocker is taking the top spot in a "BBC History Magazine" poll looking for the best-dressed Briton ever in the history of the UK. 

Bowie was one of ten nominees for the title, and the only living person vying for the honor.  His competition included a number of Royals, including Queen Elizabeth the First and King Henry the Eighth. 

Bowie got the nod with nearly 50% of the vote!
