I grew up being inspired by Madonna. she was my style icon. I loved her hairstyles and the fashion trends she created. She was inspirational as she broke all the rules when it came to offending cultures an religions.
I wonder what her ESFP personality type is?
Madonna is the Queen of pops. Queen of recreating herself when it comes to her public persona. The incredible success of her timeless style and her contribution to iconic fashion influence is what Madonna will leave with us forever. Madonna who, notwithstanding her Britishness and flirtations and experimental role plays with other cultures with Latin, Indian and Jewish cultures over the years.
One thing is for sure she always held onto her Italian-American roots.
Her ability to perpetually re-style herself has certainly contributed to the longevity of her career.
Madonna’s image is one that can be described by some as sexy, erotic or controversially vulgar and offending for others. Her performances accentuated her trademark image of a sex symbol, always sparking controversy. No matter if she was worshipped by fans or was scandalised by critics, she always managed to be in the spotlight.
Madonna is offensive in nature. Its why she made millions.
Queen Of The 80s
When you think about clothes worn in the 80s, what is the most popular style that comes to mind? As a pop icon, her style was the most copied and sought after look.
Madonna had many looks during the ’80s.
One was her most iconic looks from the 80s was the wavy hair with highlights. Girls went to the salons in droves to get the “poodle” looking perms so their hair was wavy too. They pulled it up in bows like she did to copy her look in the Borderline video and movie, “Desperately Seeking Susan.” A black tank top, skirt, dirty bleached blonde hair and an attitude.
Throughout the years she has an underlining gothic image.
Her album, Ray of light had us all running for that cowgirl image.
Her array of hair colour changes over the years has been so influential. We never had to wonder what hair dye to choose next. If Madonna had dark straight hair that was the trend to follow.
This tour for Madonna it’s back to blonde, borderline 1950’s style hair. The hair trend is set for us to be inspired for this 2012.
Madonna’s Clothing Trends
Madonna may be one of the first pioneers of the messy chic look of the ’80s. She started the layered look, with shirts and coats and more shirts. A lace shirt was often worn over another shirt. Or a sweatshirt with an oversized neck or cut off sleeves was worn over a smaller shirt or bra.
Everyday Madonna clothing of the ’80s included a skirt worn over tight, short pants. Sometimes they were patterned, other times they were lacy. No matter, the girls in school copied them.
Her famous gold boob tube, no matter how outrageous, has always left us in fashion envy. So much so she has recreated another boob tube in her current tour. Her black suit attire worn in this tour will have us wearing black catsuits in no time at all this 2012.
Her layers also included accessories. She wore multiple necklaces and bracelets, some with crosses and another iconography. She also favoured pearls and beads. Her earrings were long and dangly, with crosses or religious symbols.
Her love for accessories this tour is mainly black boots, belts and red lips. Vintage glasses, 1950’s look.
Whatever Madonna fashion image she always looks so damn hot. The inspiring image Madonna has shown us over the years has always left us clinging onto the next up and coming trend.
Let’s face it, Madonna’s fashion philosophy has no boundaries, age makes no difference and Madonna is a clear example of individuality.
She wears the style, no matter what you think?
Madonna is a lover of Kabbalah is an esoteric method, discipline, and school of thought in Jewish mysticism.
Her exercise regime is brutal. Famous for masculine arms and military physic.
1970’s image played out with her over the years. The queen of lycra and fishnets.
I have always been a fan of her eyebrows. Wanna get the, do microblading.
She is such a role model for creating one’s personal style.
