Madonna at the Met Gala 2013


[We interrupt the anniversary proceedings for this breaking bit of news.]

As I predicted on FaceBook yesterday, Madonna’s latest big-moment was her appearance at this year’s Met Gala. The theme was punk, and she delivered in this clever ensemble that made genius use of fishnet tights (a Madonna staple going back three decades), and a lot of studding. The hair is dramatic, the fit is stellar, and the pink heels give it that bit of Little Edie rebellion that sets it soaring. As with some of her severe looks, I wasn’t sure about this upon first, grainy-photo Instagram inspection, but when the better shots came in, I was convinced, and once again left befuddled at ever having doubted. Nobody does it better. No one ever will.
