Bits of Madonna’s Fashion Evolution at Macy’s Century City

I don’t know about you, but I happen to think que Madonna es lo máximo. Her music, her style, her constant reinvention is amazing. She’s always evolving and eternally youthful. You’ve got to admire that.

Fans of Madonna and local fashionistas were in for a treat last Thursday when they had a chance for an up close view of her most iconic outfits and costumes throughout her career. The collection “Madonna’s Fashion Evolution” was a pop up (one day) exhibit at Macy’s Century City hosted by Material Girl Collection. Material Girl is the fashion clothing line from Madonna and her daughter Lola which is sold exclusively at Macy’s.

The outfits were personally curated by Madonna herself. The collection featured her Like a Virgin wedding dress; the “boy toy” outfit which reminded me of the movie Desperately Seeking Susan and which I tried to copy back in the day; the dress she wore to the Grammy Awards when she was escorted by Michael Jackson; and of course, the pink gold cone bra corset by Jean Paul Gaultier that she used during her Blond Ambition Tour back in 1990.

Of course, depending of your age, you may find these items fascinating or not. Those of us who grew up with Madonna find them to be cool elements of pop culture. Ah, the 80’s and 90’s…You just had to be there

Here are a few pix of the event, courtesy of Macy’s and Material Girl for your viewing pleasure. (Note: this is not a sponsored post.)

  1. A Sofía y Pablo les da tanta risa todo lo reminiscent de los 80s and 90s no lo pueden creer, la pregunta obligada es: en serio asi se vestían? Y pues claro que los early days de Madonna los impactan… Very cool expo!! 🙂
