Madonna does Marlene

    June 22, 2013Susan

    I was recently signing into my email when a brilliant photograph caught my eye on the homepage. It was of Madonna looking great, so I clicked it and it was a fashion writer completely slating the outfit Madge had chosen to wear for the premier screening of her tour film MDNA.

    Here’s the look she went for.

    What are your thoughts?

    I’ve been a Madonna fan since the mid eighties, much to my mums disappointment, but of late Madge hasn’t been doing it for me like she once did. I hope this could mean she’s back on form fashion and music wise- maybe wishful thinking but a girl can dream right?

    I really love this look and I cant understand how someone could be a fashion writer (assuming they know some fashion history) and slate it.

    Here’s Marlene Dietrich working the tux look, hell you can even see my version of the tux look here. I think its a classic, strong look for a woman.

    If you are a lady reader have you ever worn a tux? How did it make you feel and what were others reactions?

    Any gents out there- love or loathe wearing a tux?

    Answers on a postcard please (or just a comment at the bottom will suffice) I’d love to know. I’m a bit nosy like that.

    Spread the love

      Love the androgynous look and playing around with people’s concepts of what is sexy and attractive. I have never worn a tux but would love to xxx
