Like a Virgin: Vintage Madonna

All of this recent Madonna exposure makes me a little sad. Too many pumped muscles, too much shiny purple and too much shiny hair. Not that I am going to sit here and criticise Lady Madonna, but give me the rough edges and genuine rebellion of her “Like a Virgin” days any, well, day. In fact, the more I think about it, the more I might start comandeering her style from that video.

That look actually ticks a lot of the trends which are floating about our fashionable land as we speak. Body-con shapes and leotards? Check. Ribbons, bows, excessive hair accessories in general? Check. Dominant eyebrows? Check. Lace and visible lingerie? Check. Lycra, slicked curls and bridal accessories? Um….well it was the 80s, lets not get carried away!
