Tributes have poured in from the likes of Kylie Minogue and Andy Cohen, but some aren't impressed with the Material Girl's birthday outfit.
*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.

The red carpet outside the Academy Awards is tough territory. Millions are watching, and fashion missteps aren't judged lightly. But we love the risk-takers!
The original Material Girl is known for throwing herself lavish, dramatic, over-the-top, costume-required birthday soirees. Take, for example, her 55th birthday, which was a French Revolution-inspired bash in the south of France. Or the following year when the pop star posted blurry pics from her Gatsby-inspired birthday party in Cannes. And, of course, that night she turned 57 and threw an extravagant, gypsy-themed birthday at her 50-acre Bridgehampton estate, a party so rowdy the cops were called. All we know is the parties look incredibly fun and we only wish we had been invited. ...

Nowadays, there are women in every profession: business, medicine, finance, you name it. There are female firemen, or should we say firefighters? And the same goes for police officers. There are even female construction workers. So why is it that when warning passers-by of construction, the sign says only: “Men Working”? You’ve never noticed that, have you? We hadn’t either, until Madonna pointed it out.

Let’s face it: celebrities are weird. Sure, they’re probably normal folks (well, some of them), but their eccentric and often absurd nutrition regimes are not what typical human beings wake up craving to abide by. But when you’ve got paps scavenging for photos, Instagram and Snapchat posts that simply need to be the best, and a steady slew of gigs which are in the public eye, there’s a lot of pressure to look good. Some stars consume over 5,000 calories a day (a.k.a.
Aging is tough on most women – but particularly so on women in Hollywood. From having ever pore and fine line analyzed on social media to being told they’re too old to play a role, it’s no wonder Tina Fey aptly described aging in Hollywood as “a glorious act of bravery.”

“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.
