When Madonna commences her 12th world tour, Celebration, at the O2 this weekend, it will not only be the hits and provocative dance moves that everyone is waiting for, but also the iconic looks she will be sporting.

Madonna’s music has always been intertwined with her fashion choices, captivating and sometimes infuriating audiences since she burst onto the scene in the 1980s with her cut-off t-shirts, mini-skirts, and leggings. Today, it’s almost a prerequisite for a pop goddess to flaunt her seductive side in performances, but back then, Madonna’s combination of seductive lyrics, heavy eyeliner, and lacy bras was daringly outrageous.

During the early stages of her career, Madonna’s style was all about having playful and sexy ‘boy toy’ appeal. Her fashion choices, including black lace, underwear as outerwear, religious symbolism, fingerless gloves, and leather, were all pushed to the extreme during the release of her album Like A Prayer in 1989.

Madonna’s style reached its legendary status during her Blond Ambition tour in 1990, where she collaborated with fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier. Her controversial cone-shaped bras became an iconic symbol of that era, while her transformation from a man in a chalk-striped suit to a corset-wearing queen made a powerful feminist statement.

In 1992, Madonna pushed the boundaries even further with her Erotica album, adopting a dominatrix persona named Dita Parlo. This phase marked a shift in her fashion choices, as she explored bold and provocative themes through her clothing and even released a controversial coffee-table book called Sexbook. However, she eventually toned down her image and began incorporating current fashion trends into her style, such as wearing a blue satin shirt by Tom Ford for Gucci at the 1995 VMAs.

In her later years, Madonna morphed into a spiritual guru, embracing fashion trends of the late 1990s. She continued to evolve her style, experimenting with various archetypes and playing homage to female icons. Her brief British phase, which included marrying Guy Ritchie and adopting a more refined image, was followed by a daring return to her provocative roots as she entered her 50s and 60s.

As she steps on stage for her latest tour, Madonna continues to defy expectations and embrace controversy. In her 60s, she refuses to conform to societal norms of aging gracefully and instead employs cosmetic procedures to maintain her youthful appearance. This unapologetic approach ensures that she remains an icon of audacity and keeps audiences on the edge of their seats, waiting to see what scandalous surprises she has in store.
