Lots of buzz today on Madonna's questionable millinery choice
NY Magazine: "Madonna shows up looking like a cleaning lady moonlighting as a stripper who washed her Xanax down with one too many margaritas before she changed outfits. And it was a genius, if not very attractive, fashion moment for her and Marc Jacobs, who designed the Louis Vuitton ensemble. Because on a night dedicated to the world's most beautiful women, no one -- especially a non-model -- could win by trying to look the most beautiful. So looking a bit drunk before you actually got drunk wasn't a bad way to steal attention from Kate Moss and her paltry headpiece."
The L.A. Times: "Madonna looks ready for Neverland...is it just us, or does she look like the love child of Tinkerbell and Captain Hook? We have no idea what that twisted, wadded-up turquoise napkin is doing on her head. We haven't seen a hat this silly since Sarah Jessica Parker paraded her acorn-thistle contraption at the " Sex and the City: The Movie" premiere in London."
The London Times: "Her teal-coloured hairpiece -- 'bunny ears' by Louis Vuitton -- was tied around a top knot, making Madonna look more like a glamorous cleaning lady than a fashion icon."
The Huffington Post: "Madonna showed up to the Met ball Monday night in a Louis Vuitton mini, leather zip-up, lace-up, thigh-high platform boots and her hair in a bun on the top of her head. She tied the bun with a hat (rabbit ears?) and added a few classic Madonna touches, like fingerless gloves, a bejeweled cross and arm candy Guy Oseary."
Simon Doonan, creative guru at Barneys New York and author of Eccentric Glamour: "Loved it! This is a great era for glamorous eccentricity. People are bored with glamour gowns. The ultraconventional glamour-gown look? "That's so last century, dahling!"
DLISTED: Here's Vadge in the latest LOOKATMEGODPLEASELOOKATMEPLEASE creation from Louis Vuitton at last night's Costume Institute Gala at The Met and later with Baby Jesus at the after-party. Seriously, where is Elmer Fudd when you need him?
