*Warning: Some readers may find some of the images in this article NSFW. You’ve got to give it to Madonna ; she doesn’t give a hoot what people think of her style. The award-winning artist has been longstanding red carpet rebel, working one headline-hitting outfit after another. Vogue once called the singer, who turns 60 on 16 August, an “indisputable American icon” – and that’s undeniably true. Over her 30-plus year career, her wardrobe’s become as iconic as her chart-topping hits. Madonna’s look has always been an integral part of her career and has constantly evolved. With each new record/album/tour came a new look and a new Madonna. She’s not only the Queen of Pop – but the Queen of Reinvention. The singer launched her career in the early 80s as the ultimate ‘material girl’ with statement hair accessories, loud colours and even louder make-up. As the decade passed, Madonna became more rebellious. Edgy tulle skirts were paired with crucifixes and layered necklaces reminiscent of a 1930s pin-up. Up next was Madonna’s most sexy era. She teamed up with French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier and took to the stage in version one of the bullet bra; one of her most controversial looks to date. By comparison, the naughties were fairly tame for the superstar. A focus on her film career (Madonna scored starring roles in ‘Evita’, ‘Swept Away’, and a cameo in ‘Die Another Day’) and new husband director Guy Ritchie in her life, she toned down her fashion and arrived at red carpet events in fairly sedate looks. But that didn’t mean Madonna was ready to retire her corsets. Aged 50, the singer was still wearing a leotard – a clear sign that she was never going to conform to society’s constraints. In 2016, aged 57, she arrived at the Met Gala wearing a lace look that bared both her breasts and behind. While half the world condemned the singer, the other half applauded her figurative finger-flip to ageism. What’s next for the boundary-pushing icon? Your guess is as good as ours. For now, we’ll content ourselves with looking back at Madonna’s most controversial outfits to date.

Madonna’s age-shamed yet again: Is it time to give the singer a break? Madonna hits back at her critics in powerful speech about ageism, sexism and misogyny
Madonna just celebrated her 59th birthday, giving fans a present as well by sharing an important photo on Instagram. The photo is…
Madonna, Shia LaBeouf, and Chelsea Handler are drawing criticism for their anti-Trump rhetoric. Celebrities are given a unique platform to bring awareness to certain issues, and many do not take that for granted. In the case of last year’s election, stars came out in droves to support Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Madonna has come in for a lot of flack of late. “I loved Madonna when she acted her age,” he said on Good Morning Britain. The attack could well have been a sexist, ageist and misogynist move too far for the pop superstar and she decided to use her Billboard acceptance speech to speak out about the issue and offer an insight into her experiences as a woman in the music industry.
It’s not every day that Madonna shows off her supersilly side, but she must’ve been in a good mood Wednesday morning when she shared this cute photo.
Most people aren’t born pop stars. A lot of them had to do some weird, boring, and sometimes extraordinary jobs before hitting the big time. Like this lot. Image credits: Getty/Rex Feature
Madonna changed from one custom-made Givenchy matador outfit into another. Pharrell went from an athletic shorts suit to a Grand Budapest Hotel-like bellman outfit. Ariana Grande’s “Just a Little Bit of Your Heart” performance was sultry yet sweet.
“Bitch I’m Madonna” Is a Standard Moschino Rave Warning: Explicit content above. It’s here! After Madge’s cryptic social media announcement about the release of her “Bitch I’m Madonna” music video, the much-anticipated project is officially on the interwebs (or Tidal, to be precise). Although different from her sexy matador “Living for Love,” it’s not a far cry from her sartorial choices IRL…because it’s practically a Jeremy Scott for Moschino fashion show in cinematic form. In line with the rave-like setting (filmed at the oh-so-trendy Standard Hotel in New York City), she’s dressed in a tight cheetah print dress and bright pink leather jacket completely covered with gold studs. The Queen of Pop has been teasing us all with Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Rita Ora cameos on her social media — and what a tease it was! For one, the roster of cameos far surpassed the six singers.
The Queen of Pop took to her Instagram early Tuesday morning to share a sneak peek at the roster for her newest music video — and it’s a girl gang that totally rivals Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” posse. Madonna is teaming up with Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, and Rita Ora for her newest video, “B–ch I’m Madonna.”
Time to gather your BFFs: It’s officially the year of the brat girl pack. #SquadGoals has taken social media by storm; the cast of HBO’s GIRLS has redefined true friendship; Taylor Swift’s list of lady lovers goes on for years; and now, Madonna’s following in the 25-year-old singer’s footsteps by enlisting music’s fiercest females in her “Bitch I’m Madonna” (obviously) music video. In a very “Bad Blood”-like roll out —red, black, and white poster board included—Madonna took to Instagram to share that Beyoncé Knowles, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Rita Ora will be starring in the video that’s “coming soon.” This announcement may or may not be better than when Madge premiered a video on Snapchat for her first single, “Living for Love .”
On this Friday morning, you rise and shine as a 56-year-old pop icon with killer hot pink ombre hair typically seen on a teenager. From platinum ponytails and Marilyn-esque curls to boho braids and brunette bobs, Madonna has tried dozens of hairstyles and colors over the years to accompany her ever-changing style and musical influences.
In the early '00s, Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM, was one of the most sought-after DJs in the country. Goldstein died in 2009 of an apparent drug overdose, but the new documentary 'As I Am: The Life and Times of DJ AM' tells the story of his rise.
“What the f— just happened?” said Drake when midway through his headlining set at Coachella. The singer had just been forced to make out with Madonna who was up seemingly up to her old tricks.

She’s performing on Ellen everyday this week (entertaining guests like Justin Bieber) while also promoting her 13th studio album Rebel Heart, which has already reached top billing on the Billboard 200. So we understand why she may be a little late to chime into the whole Dolce & Gabbana kerfuffle involving their stance on “non-traditional” (read: gay) families and children that were conceived via IVF. Their comments, published in Italy’s Panorama magazine, insinuated that IVF produces “children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteruses for rent, semen chosen from a catalog.” Elton John, who had two sons via IVF, was among the first to respond, calling for a boycott of Dolce & Gabbana products.
Yes! Promoting her new album Rebel Heart, the 56-year-old opened up to Howard Stern about how she was sexually assaulted decades ago. Pre-Material Girl time, when Madge was 19, she needed money for a pay phone (yes, kids, iPhones haven’t been around forever). In fact, it’s actually a common reaction that many survivors have and according to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN), 68 percent of sexual assaults go unreported.
Now it seems that Kim Kardashian and Rita Ora are doing it too. The latex dresses (50 Shades reference perhaps?) were both designed by Atsuko Kudo, a favorite amongst pop stars including Lady Gaga and retail around $500.
Nothing inspires crazy quite like the Grammy Awards. To properly celebrate the silliest red carpet of the season, Yahoo Style has decided to hand out superlatives like Most Naked, Most Outrageous, and Most Casual to those who took the biggest risks—whether they succeeded or not.
Grammys Red Carpet Face-Off: Madonna, Gwen Stefani & More While there was lot of black on the red carpet tonight, the looks were far from traditional. Madonna pretty much trumped everyone when she arrived on the red carpet in a custom Givenchy matador costume bringing back visions of her Take a Bow video. Gwen Stefani rocked an Atelier Versace jumpsuit, while both Meghan Trainor and Jessie J opted for floor-length sheer dresses with see through trains. Vote for your favorite lady in black below!
