Still on Top: Take a Look Back at Madonna's History of Trendsetting

Hold on to your (leather) hats: Madonna is being honored as the Top Touring Artist at next week's Billboard Music Awards in the States, thanks to the worldwide success of her recent MDNA tour.

From fingerless lace gloves to cone bras and stacks of rubber bracelets (the original arm party, in our opinion), Madonna has a long history of setting trends and paving the way for fashion freedom — and if her punk-inspired look from Monday's Met Gala is any indication, it doesn't look like she's stopping anytime soon. We're taking a look back at the many trends that Madonna set into motion — click through to see them all now.
