The Style Icon: Madonna

The crazy but cool Madonna is the Style Icon for the week. This 57-year-old entertainer has been slaying since the eighties and she is still doing her style thing in 2015.

In the fashion world, Madonna is known for her love of black, daring custom-made stage costumes, and being a trendsetter. She stands out from the rest and she owns every look she wears.

The Queen of Pop’s chameleon sense of style keeps the fashion and style world on its toes, you can never know for sure what her next look would be, she is flamboyant and a risk taker. I guess that is what makes her different, what makes her Madonna.

Madonna’s signature style keeps evolving, it was once eccentric, colourful, risqué and urban, and now it is more conservative, fashion-forward and ‘grown-up chic’, but it still switches from time to time, depending on her mood I guess. I LOVE the way she keeps us all on our toes. It works because I am always so eager to see what she is wearing on a Red Carpet Event or on stage. It is ‘never say never’ when her style is concerned, and she never goes unnoticed, and I love that about her.

In a way, she is a Style Icon and a Fashion Criminal at the same time. She slays most of her looks, and has fought and won the fashion right to express herself anyway she pleases. She can get away with wearing some pieces that don’t exactly hit the spot, just because she is Madonna, pieces like this below:

However, when her copycats like Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga try to copy her style, they look horrible. That is why she is the Style Icon.

Fashion Criminal: Helena Bonham Carter

Helena Bonham Carter is famous for her unique talent and quirky stage presence, but she has been committing fashion crimes for a very long time, so she is the Fashion Criminal of the week on Fashion and Style Police.

This woman is a fashion disaster. Her quirky, eccentric style is not only plain wrong, it is all over the place. She wears some of the most ridiculous outfits I have ever seen. Her pieces and accessories are so weird, it is quite laughable. I get she doesn’t give two hoots on what people think about her fashion sense and she dresses for “herself” but I cannot get over the fact that she leaves her house dressed like a mismatched doll. Her disheveled look is an eye sore but then again her style icon is Lady Gaga, a previous fashion criminal, so what was I expecting?

No one can walk the streets looking like this, you will be mistaken for a crazy woman, except you are a Helena Bonham Carter. She once told the Daily Mail:

‘But fashion is all about having fun. I think fashion has been hijacked by the fashion industry creating rules on what one should wear and I feel like breaking the mould and seeing that the world won’t crumble. For me, fashion is all about fantasy and putting unlikely things together. That is what I love. I genuinely love dressing up.’

I agree with her. Fashion is all about having fun, but she has taken the idea of ‘fun’ to a completely different level. Real stylish women do not follow the dictates of the fashion industry, they create their own signature look and look fabulous. You can be quirky and fabulous.

Fashion Criminal: Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is one creative woman I admire. Her voice is so out of this world and I love most of her songs but her fashion sense and personal style is a No-No. Lady Gaga dresses up like a woman in her 40s, I always have to remind myself that she is only 29 years old. This Fashion Criminal goes for extreme, crazy pieces and accessories; and she looks hideous in them.Herself and my previous Fashion Criminal; Charly Boy have one thing in common, they are both so WEIRD.

I think Lady Gaga dresses CRAZY deliberately, just to stand out but she can stand out and look impeccable.  Just look at the likes of Solange, Kate Moss, Janelle Monae and other stylish celebrities. These ladies stand out from the pack for their fabulous signature styles. Lady Gaga can be her crazy self but still look good. She can have a crazy personality but still NORMAL.

Lady Gaga’s fashion sense makes her appear a lot older than her age, she needs to tone the crazy outfits and dress up in youthful, stylish pieces and accessories that will complement her body shape and natural colouring. I will like to see her in normal outfits like what she has on in the first picture above. That is the sanest outfit I have seen Lady Gaga in.
