Madonna Material Girl
Madonna the “Material Girl” and Fashion Queen
Madonna was deemed the Material Girl, and rightly so, but had already started introducing the wardrobe for such, beginning with “Everybody” and continuing through with “Burning Up”, “Holiday”, “Lucky Star”, “Borderline”, “Like a Virgin” “Material Girl” and “Crazy for You”, almost to 1985.
Though around the time of her second singles release “Material Girl” from her second album “Like a Virgin” was probably her most riveting period (from 1983-1985) and one that spawned the legendary trend setting attire that most MD fans recall and still see today. Let’s face it, Madonna started the look that turned heads young and old!
Here at Madonna Costumes, we want to assist you in finding the most vast selection of 80s Madonna costumes, accessories, and just plain 80s fun, possible. You’ll find various representations of the 80s pop star as she danced and sang her way to universal stardom!
Let’s start out with the early Madonna Material Girl look and before, the images that truly made her famous.
As you can see from these actual Madonna photos (credits: The Tribune, valdaisy.com, chicago.metromix.com, © 2006 WMG Lucky Star) that she started very early in her career gearing up to be the undisputed top selling female recording artist of all time, selling over 300 Million records!
The early 80s Madonna (or now commonly referred to as “Madge”) as we knew her:
As you browse through the pics (starting at the top left to right) you’ll see that even as a mere child, Madonna material girl was oozing from her veins. Multicolor bangle bracelets mostly black and white, big hair with big lace hair ribbon, and of course her infamous (sometimes multiple) large necklaces and big dangling earrings mostly of a religious nature…
Baggie cloths with ankle booties or boots, elbow length formals, black lace fingerless gloves, leggings, short skirts, bustier top or black tank tops all were her obvious attire of choice, heck she even turned crinoline from under a formal dress into a fad.
As we all know Madonna loved her accessories!
In fact you seldom would see her without her beloved extensions of her personality, especially in the Madonna Material Girl days, yet even continued all the way through the Madonna Vogue & Blond Ambition periods. Still to this day, perhaps on a talk show or one of her other rare appearances, you can sometimes see a hint of true Madonna fashion!
We have compiled an extensive, I guess you could say, portal of one of this woman’s favorite pastimes, Madonna Accessories.
