Madonna In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture – 2018 Met Gala

You could easily say that the ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ theme of the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City was made for Madonna.

The ‘Like a Virgin’ singer was born for this red carpet, after all. And, rock the theme Madge did.

But, rather than go for a white look of purity, she went in the opposite direction with a Jean Paul Gaultier Couture extravaganza that her stylist Eyob Yohannes likened to an ‘Immaculate Goth Queen.’

The black ball gown featured a sheer cross cutout that you would be forgiven for missing initially, as her mesh black veil and elaborate cross-bedecked crown commanded so much attention up front.

She carried a giant black rose to finish the dark, theatrical spectacle that won’t be soon forgotten.

#MDNAmeetsKKW

MDNA SKIN hosted Madonna and Kim Kardashian West for a beauty conversation at YouTube Space LA, on Tuesday (March 6).

Throughout the 30-minute conversation, Madonna and Kim shared their favourite beauty tips, biggest beauty inspirations, took selfies and tried each other’s products.

The Queen of pop wore a wore an Alexandre Vauthier velvet tuxedo with enlarged lapels to accentuate the shoulder line giving her a classic 80s look.

Kim was also presenting a classic look, by opting for a bra and fitted skirt.

Here’s a snippet of their conversation. The full conversation will be posted on the MDNA SKIN’s YouTube channel.

Madonna on her daily beauty routine
“I sleep on my face, so I wake up with puffy eyes. When I wake up, my eyes look like small planets, so I created these eye masks that are filled with eye serum, and I cannot speak to anybody until my eyes are not planets.”

Madonna on her beauty inspirations
“I loved Hollywood glamour – Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, and Marlene Dietrich. To me, they were the personification of feminine beauty, and it really looked like they all took care of their skin. And yes, they are all mentioned in my song Vogue.”

Madonna on when beauty first became important to her
“When you become aware that people are watching you and judging you, then you start thinking about the way you look.”

Kim on sharing beauty tips
“I love giving advice. People always come to me. I love analyzing someone’s face and going with them to a doctor and being like, ‘Wait, a little botox here and little here.’ People write me — I will not say who — but people in the business, people that I’ve never even met before, and they’ll text me and they’ll be like, ‘Hey this is so and so. I’m going to send you pictures and tell me what you think I should do.”

Kim on her inspiration
“My mom was a stewardess and all the girls would save their money for a beauty ‘tips and tricks’ class. She learned the trick of exfoliating with a hot wash cloth and I wash my face with a wash cloth every night.”

Madonna In Roland Mouret – MDNA SKIN Launch

It’s always a thrill to see what Madonna is going to wear. The singer didn’t disappoint when she arrived at Barney’s New York to promote her new skin line, MDNA SKIN, on Tuesday (September 26).

Looking like a true diva, Madonna rocked a red Roland Mouret ‘Ardingly’ dress.

The frock’s subtle peplum waist and off-the-shoulder neckline elevated the fitted style, but they played a supporting role to the singer’s statement sunglasses, lace gloves, and array of multicoloured bracelets.

Sheer black tights and black heels finished off the classic-with-a-twist look.

Madonna In Saint Laurent & Markus Lupfer – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Madonna was the lead guest on Monday’s ‘Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,’ where she promoted her new live album, and her MDNA Skin launch.

Making a grand entrance – in unique Madonna fashion – the iconic singer was decked out in a Saint Laurent Fall 2017 blazer which is not only feels opulent due to the crystals, but also fits her rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic.

My favourite part of this look is her Markus Lupfer ‘Lips’ t-shirt, as the signature motif is clearly a tongue and cheek poke at her famous gap-teeth.

Partnered with Mother ‘The Super Stunner Ankle Fray’ jeans, The Kooples studded belt and shades, I love how the Judith Leiber Couture ‘Katerina’ crystal skull bag almost acts like her sceptre.

She is the Queen of Pop after all.

2017 Met Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Many more stars were at the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Hailee Steinfeld: I love the deconstructed kimono edge of this Vera Wang design that was both playful and progressive. Hailee’s twisted top knot and winged eye liner likewise sold the look to me.

Dasha Zhukova
: Dasha softly echoed the theme with this red floral Proenza Schouler keyhole gown.

Olivia Cooke: Also wearing the colour of the night, Olivia donned a seductive red Burberry gown with boudoir lace that got creative in its asymmetry.

2015 Met Gala Roundup

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

A flurry of even more bold names descended on red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), where their colourful variety of looks only contributed to this year’s fashion extravaganza.

Anna Wintour
: As the gala co-host, the ‘Vogue’ editor-in-chief dressed thematically (for her, anyway) in a Chanel Spring 2015 Couture gown featuring dimensional, all-over poppy embroidery, which had been lengthened from the runway’s original shorter version. She should have maintained her signature cap sleeve, as the flower petal statement shoulders translated as a bit cumbersome, despite their inherent artistry.

Bee Shaffer: Like her mother, Bee also found inspiration in flowers, opting for a mahogany blossom gown by Alexander McQueen. I much preferred this look to Anna’s, especially with the enchantment of the beautifully embroidered Chinese cranes that alighted down the back of the dress.

Madonna In Alexander Wang – 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Madonna In Alexander Wang - 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Madonna attended the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium on Sunday (March 29) in Los Angeles, California where she performed with Taylor Swift.

The music icon wore an Alexander Wang Fall 2015 silver chainmail dress with ball chain detailing styled with a belt and signature crucifix.

It’s safe to say this dress wasn’t on my wish list, but one must give some credit to the designer for the craftsmanship of this piece.

Of course Madge only wore it because of the sheer element and for that the best reaction I can give this look is a sign of exasperation and an eyeroll.
