Madonna In Givenchy – 2013 Met Gala

madonna

Like Beyonce Knowles and Florence Welch, Madonna also trotted out Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci for the 2013 Met Gala on Monday at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

However, unlike Bey and Flo, Madge put on a full-fledged costume for the Costume Institute Benefit. She may have arrived late to the red carpet, but she wasn’t going unnoticed.

The singer threw caution to the wind and channeled her inner wild-child and sent out a rebel yell with this pants-less get-up that delivered every touchstone of punk imaginable.

The studs, the spikes and the chains all came out to play. So did the plaid. Grommets and gloves were present and accounted for, right along with grungy ripped fishnet tights and a visible lace bra.

Did I miss anything? Oh, yes. The dog collar choker and locket, and the hot pink Casedei ankle-strap pumps. And, of course, there was the shock-and-awe factor that’s so crucial in chaotic punk style.

To top it all off? A short black Cleopatra wig. She should have done a mohawk.

Madonna’s ‘Truth or Dare’ Shoe Collection


Madonna’s ‘Truth or Dare’ shoe collection arrived in Selfridge’s shoe galleries on Monday, just in time as the Queen of Pop kicks off her tour in London’s Hyde Park this week.

Created to showcase Madonna’s dichotomy as ‘both powerful icon and feminine beauty’, the line was created with the help of Madonna’s longtime stylist Arianne Phillips and features a lot of studs, zips and gold accents.

Produced by high-street footwear retailer Aldo, the collection features 23 styles with prices from £80-£480, and includes a range of styles from brogues to heels and boots.

The collection will be exclusive to Selfridges until September 1. ASOS, Nordstrom and Macy’s will carry the line this fall.

Madonna In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Truth or Dare’ by Madonna Fragrance Launch

Madonna is a singer, actress, director, children’s book author and she’s even dabbled in fashion, collaborating with Lourdes on her Material Girl clothing line – but the beauty industry has been the one industry she was yet to conquer.

Until now of course.

Last night, the ‘Material Girl’ launched her first fragrance ‘Truth or Dare’ by Madonna at Macy’s in Herald Square in New York City.

Dressed in Dolce & Gabbana, of course, the sheer, lace-accented dress was worn with a black bodysuit.

A signature crucifix, black satin peep-toes and blow-out locks completed her look.

Whilst Madonna looks good, this look is very much expected and very familiar.

Madonna’s Dress Credits For ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’ Video

Madonna continues to give us high fashion in her music video, ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’, which was styled by Arianne Phillips.

The singer, who’s had more comebacks than Rocky Balboa, kick-starts her music video wearing shades and a Burberry trench coat whilst wheeling a baby carriage down a suburban street.

She’s then stripped out of the trench to reveal a Bebe (yes, Bebe) variegated black leather cropped jacket with Kiki de Montparnasse hot pants.

The video then cuts to a crucifix-wearing Madonna decked out in black high-waist pants with a black Norma Kamali long-sleeve crop top which reveals an animal-print bra.

My favourite part of the video is when Madonna channelled her 80s Material Girl sporting tight platinum blonde curls and wearing a white lace Dolce & Gabbana dress which she teamed with custom-made Sergio Rossi metallic croc heels.

I hate to say it but the catchy chorus is growing on me.

Madonna In Antonio Berardi – ‘MDNA’ Album Cover


Madonna is gearing up to release her 12th studio album, MDNA, which features her new single Give Me All Your Luvin’, on March 26.

Antonio Berardi, who is much loved by celebrities, has received the royal seal of approval from her Madgesty, as the singer wears a dress from his Spring 2012 collection on both covers of her album.

Her red shoulder-padded sheath dress with cut-out details and a patent leather panel was teamed with red hot lips and red leather fingerless gloves.

Just how many pairs of these gloves does this woman own?

The cover was shot by Mert and Marcus with Madonna’s long-time collaborator Arianne Phillips styling the shoot.

Zoe Saldana wore a similar blush pink dress to the Gen Art’s Fresh Faces In Fashion Event last year.

Madonna In Givenchy Couture – Super Bowl XLVI Half-time Show

This morning I was still up at 1am watching the Superbowl on BBC1 for the first time in my life.

It wasn’t to see the Giants triumph over the Patriots; it was to take in Madonna’s half-time performance – and to see what she was wearing, of course.

She didn’t disappoint in either department.

Madge arrived on the field flanked by burly men in gladiator customs and dancers in Jeremy Scott for Adidas tracksuits as she gave an epic performance of ‘Vogue’.

Her entire couture wardrobe was designed by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy Haute Couture.

She kick-started the fashion parade wearing a dramatic cape embroidered with gold metal cut-out pieces, studs, crystals, sequins and paillettes and lined in leopard-print chiffon.

Once the cape dropped, she continued the Egyptian theme by revealing a black mini dress worn with a studded belt, a short cape and custom Miu Miu thigh-thigh black-and-gold boots.

Throughout the performance of ‘Music’, ‘Express Yourself’ and her brand new single ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’, which she performed with Nicki Minji and M.I.A, the cape, Philip Treacy headpiece and belt were removed.

An embellished black coat with shiny black rectangular sequins and micro pearls completed a trio of looks for her spine-tingling performance of ‘Like A Prayer’ with Cee-Lo Green.

Givenchy fingerless leather opera gloves and Bulgari earrings were worn throughout her performance.

Twitter was abuzz last night as everyone was saying that Madonna looked a lot like Italian Vogue Editor-In-Chief Franca Sozzani.

The resemblance is uncanny.

Madonna In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture – Bridgestone Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show Press Conference

Madonna will be making a return on Sunday when she takes to the stage for the Super Bowl half-time show.

During the press conference held yesterday at the Super Bowl XLVI Media Center 2012 in Indianapolis, Indiana, the singer revealed that she will be singing renditions of three old songs and her new track, ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’.

She also revealed her bulging biceps in a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2012 ensemble straight from the Paris runway.

The look included a cropped pin-stripe vest teamed with matching pants and a white corset with black embroidered details.

She accessorized with a silver crucifix, a twisted wallet chain, black leather gloves – which she now wears everywhere – and black pumps.

I don’t know about you, but I think this look was made for the ‘Material Girl’.

Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, U2, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, The Black Eyed Peas and Janet Jackson are among recent performers on the Super Bowl half-time show.

Jackson’s 2004 performance was the most controversial due to her infamous “wardrobe malfunction”.

Madonna said all efforts had been made to ensure there would not be a similar episode in her show.

“Great attention to detail has been paid to my wardrobe, there will be no wardrobe malfunction – I promise,” she said.

Let’s hope she keeps to her promise.
