Madonna has become the latest celeb to “weigh in” on a Karl Lagerfeld faux pas.
Perhaps the most striking thing about Madonna‘s film W.E. is the incredible wardrobe worn by a fictionalized Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII. The clothes and the jewelry are truly sights to behold, and the film’s costume designer Arianne Phillips will vie for an Oscar this Sunday.
“We’re seeing a Madonna movie, right?” This is the question posed by a film critic at the W.E. screening we attended back in December. Another critic nods. “Why the hell not,” shrugs the first. Early reviews had been ambivalent at best, and the audience is equal parts skeptical and amused as wait to see Madonna‘s directorial debut. The day after the screening we find ourselves face-to-face with the Queen of Pop herself.
If you were wondering just how much it cost Bridgestone to get Madonna the license for the Vogue logo she danced all over during the Super Bowl, we can tell you: Not one red American penny.
Madonna is just…wow.
Well this isn’t topical at all. Just 48 hours before she’s supposed to perform at the biggest football game of the year, Madonna has released a playful football-themed video for hew new song Give Me All Your Luvin.
It should come as no surprise to anyone that Madonna isn’t exactly Lady Gaga‘s biggest fan, but the politely cagey interview she gave on Friday night’s episode of 20/20 revealed just how little she thinks of the pop star.
When one factors in the amount of thought, effort, and sheer deliberateness with which stylists put together ensembles for their clients (see: any episode of The Rachel Zoe Project), the fact that Madonna wore this squeaking abomination of a suit on Anderson Cooper today is somewhat astounding.
Madonna‘s directorial debut W.E. has been on our radar for quite some time. The couture costumes, royal family subject matter, and the iconic lady at the helm of it all are quite appealing to our interests. Now the official trailer is here, and we can’t decide what we think.
Madonna isn’t Harper’s Bazaar only December cover girl. The pop superstar-turned-director appears alongside Andrea Riseborough, the star of her new film W.E., on the front of the glossy.
This was the week celebrities (and normal people) wore lots of Halloween costumes! This was also the week we talked to a few of our girlcrushes (Blake Lively! Alexa Chung! Mindy Kaling!), lamented offensive merchandise, and saw what Courtney Stodden looks like without makeup. Oh, yeah, and Kim Kardashian filed for divorce.
Do you look longingly at the Material Girl section of your local Macy’s juniors department every time you walk past it, wishing that Madonna would make a clothing line grown women could wear without feeling bad about it? Your wish is about to come true.
Madonna and her daughter Lola are on the hunt for the newest face* of their Material Girl line for Macy’s, and they’d like to make sure you know exactly what they’re looking for. Ideal attributes include: a good understanding of irony, a love of shopping, and some feelings about feelings. Other things we learn: Madonna doesn’t eat fruit (“it hurts her stomach”), she doesn’t eat things she “can’t identify”, and Lola doesn’t know how to chew with her mouth closed.
Last night Madonna attended the BFI London Film Festival premiere for W.E. — otherwise known as her directorial debut about Wallis Simpson. And just as she did when showing off the film in Venice, the popstar-turned-director went the embellished route.
For some reason, people really like to leak unretouched photos of Madonna. Four different sets of un-photoshopped images of the Material Girl were published in 2010 and now pictures from a 2009 shoot for W magazine have made it onto the web.
This was the week Kim Kardashian allowed her wedding dress to get knocked off, Muslim women got knocked out at an amusement park, and a 3-year-old girl wore fake boobs and got lauded for it. Also, some designers pushed back their collections because of the hurricane, and Tavi Gevinson announced a launch date for Rookie.
Despite Madonna‘s attempt to get the Material Girl lawsuit thrown out, she will indeed be heading to court to defend her brand.
Madonna made her directorial debut in Venice Thursday night with the premiere of her Wallis Simpson biopic, W.E. But while the film stars Andrea Riseborough in the title role, all eyes were on the Material Girl as she floated (almost literally) down the red carpet in a baby blue Vionnet dress covered with red butterflies.
Sad truth: As much as most of us love fashion, we have a fairly limited appreciation of what the word couture actually means. Luckily, Madonna seems to be determined to bring that back with W.E., a movie she’s directing about the 1930s and 40s style icons the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
We sort of expected to be blown out of the water by the looks at the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala last night. After all, the event is all about fashion, and last night’s, specifically, was about the creations of one of the greatest designers of our time, the late Alexander McQueen. McQueen’s designs were known for their grand scale, high drama, innovative use of materials and nods to time gone by. And the women who made the biggest impressions on the red carpet last night wore gowns that did the exact same things.
