Madonna & Chanel K-I-S-S-I-N-G. @ Cannes

22 May 2008, 19.31 | Posted in Art, Fashion | No comments »

Straight up, the dress, which is Chanel, is amazing. You see a garment like this and it’s one of those moments when you are made to understand the difference between ready to wear and coutoure. My issue with Madge in this dress, however, is that she’s so tiny that it doesn’t look as good on her. And she has a tendency to do that–wear outfits that fit her personality rather than her frame. But oh well, she’s Mo. Her critics over the past quarter of a century have come and gone and she remains standing. A bad-ass female if ever there was one!

My other issue is that I’m not crazy about this kind of stark, black, white color contrast. To my eye, it breaks up the dress’s lines too much.

Madonna: Cover of Elle Magazine

14 April 2008, 16.53 | Posted in Books | No comments »

Madonna is on the cover of May’s Elle magazine looking her usual hot and charismatic self, qualities brought to the forefront by Tom Munro’s outstanding photography.

As far as Ms. Ciccone-Ritchie is concered, I have this theory that the more nicknames a person has, the more legendary. In the case of Madonna we have: Boy Toy, Madge, Daisy, Mo, Material Girl, Esther. etc.

I rest my case.

Here’s a taste of the shoot:

^^She’s wearing a silk/cashmere sweater by Halston; a patent vinyl bra by Deborah Marquit and those ultra-sick boots? Why Miu Miu of course!

And on another note, but still speaking of Elle magazine, by now I take it you know that Nina Garcia is out from her job as fashion director as Elle. I know there’s a lot of speculation about what happened, but I’m thinking they gave her the shove ’cause she just didn’t have time with all her other Fashion Runway obligations to do her job right! All that gossip being said, the very latest update from MediaBistro is that she’s still in talks with Elle to keep up some sort of mutually beneficial connection.

Late-breaking update: I am so on it! I was just reading this snippet on PerezHilton:

“She became too busy with Project Runway the last year to two,” a mag insider tells us. “Nina had been spending about 8 hours a week on average actually in the office and working, and had her 2 assistants doing all of her work for her.”

Did I not say that exact same thing??
