Someone must really have a thing for Madonna; this is the fourth time unretouched images of her have leaked — this year! This time, the images are from the Queen of Pop’s recent ad campaign for Dolce & Gabbana, and while the differences pre- and post-production are certainly startling, we can’t help but wish the design duo had gone with the originals.
Yes, Madonna has wrinkles, veins, and muscles for which she’s worked long and hard — and all of those things are what make her so fabulous. If they’re going to chose to hire a 52-year-old icon, mother, and super star, they should show her as she is — otherwise, what’s the point?
And additionally, there’s something so wonderfully light, vulnerable, and refreshing about these pre-production images. Now that’s an ad campaign that would have made us stop and stare.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
