It’s been the trend for the past few years that once a guy or gal breaks into any aspect of show business, they somehow believe they are perfectly welcome in every other area of entertainment or mass production; most of the time this means that celebrity after celebrity – be it a singer, reality starlet, movie actress, etc – decides he or she is suddenly qualified to launch their own clothing line. Only occasionally does it happen to be a great success, and totally credible (enter Victoria Beckham, former snooty Spice Girl).
The newest celebrity to add clothing designer to their list falls into the “well ooobviously she would have a clothing line, and it is beyond acceptable” category: fashion legend Madonna.
Styelist.com just released a few sketches of the upcoming juniors fall line, entitled “Material Girls,” that are due to hit Macy’s August 3. Judging by the fun and flirty sketches, Madonna definitely wants her 1990s original Material Girl style to make a comeback. While that may scare some of you away – and let’s be honest, the target market for this juniors collection probably isn’t all that familiar with Madonna’s iconic 90s style – she has somehow found a way to take the playful parts of her lace, zippers and big bows, and carry them seamlessly into modern trends.
Personally I don’t know if I’ll be able to talk myself into purchasing fingerless lace gloves or checked midriff-baring bustier, but I do love that floral print dress!
