#Madonna's Pop Up Exhibit @Macys


This is what I have to say about the marvelous one day, two hour only Madonna Pop Up Exhibit at the Century City Macy's store in Los Angeles.  Yes, the Gaultier bustiers were there and under thorough inspection are complete perfection and works of art.  The beyond iconic Like a Virgin wedding dress was there in all its virgin/whore glory. The Bob Mackie pearl and diamond encrusted Oscar dress and fur wrap were there and absolutely gorgeous.  The Open Your Heart bustier from the Who's That Girl tour (not the video) was there and absolutely awesome.  The purple Lacroix bustier from ReInvention was unbelievably detailed, impeccable and beyond petite.  





But what really popped my cork, of course, was the Keith Haring Devil skirt from the Vivienne Westwood 1983 Witches collection coupled with the legendary graffitied Boy Toy denim jacket and the worn-out Italians Do it Better T-Shirt from the Papa Don't Preach video.  I'm still recovering from the fabulousness of seeing those last three "pieces" right in my fucking face.

  7. I noticed that Arienne Phillips put her name on all the outfits as the "Stylist". She really didnt style all of those early looks. What's up with that? She dressed the mannequins and copied the style. That's not styling. She can only lay claim to the RIT bustier. All the others were created before she began working with Madonna around 2000.
