If you had to take a trip down memory lane and choose the worst hairstyle of all time, what would it be? Perhaps you'd pick the mid 1980s where hairspray and high fringe was in fashion? Or, how about the classic mullet when long in the back and short in the front was all the rage? Personally, I was never a fan of the pixie cut or the bowl cut, but man did I rock the side ponytail and the permanent wave. Take a look at these eight slides and leave a comment with some of your personal hair horror stories!
I know what you're thinking...this is just what the world needs, right. Another celebrity fragrance on the market, especially by the Queen of Pop. However, from reading what's been blasted online all morning, it sounds like this "feminine and mysterious" scent is legit. Madge worked closely with Stephen Nilsen of the Givauden perfume house to create Truth or Dare (yes, it has the same name as her 1991 film, and it is also the first part of her lifestyle brand that will include accessories, lingerie and champagne). He seemed taken with her dedication, and apparently Stephen even took 200 revised samples over to her New York City flat whilst she was there last Summer. In her press kit, Madonna says,
"There is something primal and mystical about the sense of smell. It connects us to memory, nostalgia and the ability to dream and fantasize. I have always been obsessed by fragrance and for years wanted to create something personal that was an expression of me, but that other people could relate to as well. Something classical and timeless and yet modern. We can be tricked by what we see and what we hear but not by what we smell."
The juice was inspired by her deceased mother whom she said, "always smelled like gardenias and tuberose." It contains a blend of white florals, vanilla, caramelized amber and woods. The bottle is gold and white and the design was based off of a silver tube that she carried her fragrance tester vials in — I guess she didn't want to get too far out of her comfort zone for this part of the project!
Truth or Dare Eau de Parfum will be available in three sizes (75-30ml) starting at £25 with a body lotion and shower gel as accouterments. It will be available exclusively at Selfridges on 18th April with a national rollout in May. Will you dare to wear Truth or Dare this Spring?
If you're anything like me you eat, sleep and breathe Madonna. Okay, well maybe that's a bit much, but I consider any inside information on the Queen of Pop something to get excited over. Perhaps that's why I'm drawn to this unbelievably racy bra and panties set from Agent Provocateur she was photographed wearing on the cover of her "Girls Gone Wild" single.
If you're anything like Mr. FabSugarUK, you stayed up as long as you could to watch the biggest TV sporting event in America last night. Or, perhaps you're more like me who instead woke up this morning and watched on fast foward until the half time show starring Madonna! In several Givenchy Haute Couture costumes, with Roman soldiers and other artists by her side, her twelve minute, forty second performance is something you wouldn't want to miss. The Queen of Rock sang a medley of her new and old songs so that there was a little something for all of her fans to enjoy. But what I loved most was the fashion! Madonna and Givenchy lead designer Riccardo Tisci created three pretty show stopping looks including a gold cape, long black coat and a gladiator-inspired cheerleader outfit. Tisci said,
Following my collaboration with Madonna on her last tour three years ago, it is a great honor for me to be a part of yet another historical and iconic moment. People say everything has a limit, but limits do not exist with Madonna. I am so happy that, after being busy in other scenes, she decided to go back on a music stage. Not only to bring us music, but also to make such a statement of performance and fashion."
We couldn't be happier about it either! If you've missed the performance, you can watch it here, but first check out her amazing costumes up close by clicking through this slideshow.
Madonna blew the roof off of the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show in Indianapolis on Sunday. The Giants defeated the Patriots to take home the championship, but Madonna was another winner of the evening. She performed some of her biggest hits like "Vogue" and "Like a Prayer," as well as her new single "Give Me All Your Luvin." Nicki Minaj and MIA joined her for that cheerleader-inspired jam, though MIA managed to cause a bit of controversy when she seemed to give the middle finger to the camera. Madonna also sang alongside the guys of LMFAO and Cee Lo Green. Madonna's impressive spectacle ended with a light show and inspirational message of "World Peace" for the audience in the stadium and watching around the country. What did you think of Madonna's halftime show?
In case you hadn't heard, Madonna will be taking the stage on Sunday to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show. We're keeping our fingers crossed for one or two vintage songs (a medley perhaps?), but there's one thing you can count on: she'll be showing off her latest single, "Give Me All Your Luvin'." The new video for the song is essentially an ad for the biggest day in football: we've got linebackers surrounding the Queen of Pop, while M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj act as cheerleaders. Whether or not you're into the tune, there's no denying that Madonna's still got the bod and the moves of a pop star. Watch it below and tell us what you think.
Madonna stepped out in an over-the-top Marchesa dress for the NYC premiere of W.E. last night. It was a wise dress choice for Madonna — Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman is married to Harvey Weinstein, who produced Madonna's film. Madonna even gave Harvey a shout-out when she accepted her Golden Globe for best song. Director Madonna took her film's stars, Andrea Riseborough and James D'Arcy, down the red carpet, which also hosted Julia Stiles and Ivanka Trump.
Madonna's fashion choices tend to make headlines, and with the help of Arianne Phillips, W.E. was nominated for an Oscar for best costume design this morning. In addition to an Academy Award appearance, Madonna has added Super Bowl Sunday to her schedule. She has the honor of doing this year's half-time performance.
The 2012 Golden Globe Awards were an affair to remember. The action got started Sunday with a fashionable red carpet and continued inside with a star-studded dinner, but the fun didn't stop when the show wrapped. There were afterparties thrown by InStyle, the Weinstein Company, HBO, and more with Rachel Zoe, Cameron Diaz, Miranda Kerr, and others coming out to celebrate with the evening's big winners. We've rounded up all the best pictures from the night in one spot so click through to see everything from the Golden Globes!
Last night in Kensington, Madonna attended the UK premiere of her new film W.E. which she co-wrote and co-produced. Wearing a black Jean Paul Gaultier dress that she paired with a lace cape, red lipstick and a matching red fingerless leather glove, she looked every bit the iconic fashion rockstar that we'd expect to see. Also wearing bold red lipstick was Scottish DJ and TV presenter Edith Bowman and English actress and model, Amber Anderson. What do you think of this bright lip trend, and are you eager to watch the film due out on 20th Jan?
From huge celebrity fragrances (yes, more are coming!) to an unexpected color trend for lips, 2012 is bound to break new ground in the world of beauty. Get ahead of the trends with our video preview of what's coming next year.
