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!"

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?

  1. And don't forget "Go Fug Yourself." The Fug girls said:

    "Picture Carrie Bradshaw. Now picture her having fallen on hard times, reduced to starting a burlesque show in her apartment to make ends meet while Big weeps over his crippled stock portfolio. Then add absinthe and stir. Voila! You have Madonna."
