A true test of self awareness is constantly trying to update and better yourself, I’m never one to think ‘oh i have done everything I could do, so I must be done with life’ and upgrading your style is no exception. Madonna has become my most current style inspiration, she is a legend in every way but early 90’s Madonna really tugs at my vintage heart. Although her 1920’s looks were beyond anything I could ever dream, her Justify My Love era, was in fact Madonna at her best. Sensual, sexual, provocative, and to some even offensive, the video for Justify My love was banned from MTV back in 1990. Looking at the video now in 2017 really goes to show you how time changes perception, as it’s now pretty tamed compared to what we have seen since. The video still stands as a sensual piece of art though.
Madonna looks beautifully and effortlessly glamorous in black in this video, black coat, black lingerie, black stockings, heavily lined eyes eyes, Marilyn esque hair. Everything about this looks screams vintage femme fatale, something that I have always found in myself. Although I am no Madonna, I am having fun using this as my current style inspiration. Here is my first attempt at this look, I think it could definitely used some more eyeliner and volume!
