did you know madonna is coming out with a new album? if you didn’t, you certainly will after seeing her media onslaught this month. madge graces the covers of may’s vanity fair, uk elle, and us elle, not to mention april’s interview and dazed and confused. for the elle’s, she worked with new photographer tom munro, and the results are mixed, her us cover looks matronly and old-fashioned (she’s wearing chanel). the shots inside are much better and i love that she’s interviewed by simon doonan! another cool thing in this issue is a portfolio of green designs from top designers including stefano pilati for ysl, calvin klein, moschino, and ralph lauren.
her uk cover on the other hand, is more typical madonna we’re used to seeing, black, bodysuit, and legs.
on vanity fair’s green issue, madge channels an earth mother vibe, albeit, a sexy earth mother. the ed, shot by steven meisel, has madonna again in bustiers and hot pants wearing thigh-high lace up boots, but in her interview, she talks of making music, her directorial debut and her documentary on malawi. it’s a more interesting look at the woman who has changed music and herself in the process.
