    Default MADONNA: a History of Her Trendsetting!



    Yesterday (August, 16 2012) Madonna got 54 !

    The international superstar, clothing chameleon, and ultimate risk-taker, single-handedly ushered in
    tons of trends since she hit the scene in the early '80s.

    From Ray-Ban Wayfarers and fingerless lace gloves to cone bras and stacks of rubber
    bracelets , Madonna has a long history of setting trends and paving the way for fashion freedom.

    Rubber Bracelets


    Madonna's penchant for rubber and leather bracelets — and lots of them — became an
    instant trend. We can thank her for our daily arm parties.

    Crop Tops


    Before Britney and Christina bared their bellies on MTV, it was Madonna's midriff
    that everyone was talking about. She showed off her stomach in crop tops, cut-off t-shirts,
    and sometimes just a bra.

    Fingerless Lace Gloves


    With all the lace that Madonna wore in the '80s, it's a surprise there wasn't a nationwide shortage of the stuff.

    Girls everywhere adopted Madonna's way of wearing lace tops, dresses, and leggings and were
    especially drawn to her fingerless lace gloves. She wore them with everything and layered
    her stacks of bracelets on top of them.

    Leather Caps


    One of Madonna's many accessory choices during the '80s and '90s were leather riding caps.
    They always came off as strong, powerful, and sexy, and it's something that she still wears to this day.

    Signature Slogans


    We bet there's never been a moment that you've seen the words "boy toy" and not thought
    of Madonna, right?

    The studded belt she wore in her Like a Virgin video emblazoned with the term became
    a signature staple of her wardrobe and gave us another glimpse of her sexual confidence.

    She also had us running out and buying message tees, whether or not we were
    actually "healthy" — or Italian.

    One Earring


    One of the coolest '80s trends that Madonna launched was wearing only one earring.
    It had to be oversized, and it had to make a statement

    Ray-Ban Wayfarers


    Madonna was just one of the many style icons who brought Ray-Bans to their peak of
    popularity in the '80s.

    Other Wayfarer-loving stars included Tom Cruise, Michael Jackson, and Debbie Harry.
    Madonna wore hers everywhere, from the cover of her "Lucky Star" single to her starring role
    in Desperately Seeking Susan.

    Rosary Necklaces


    From the start of her career, Madonna was open about her Catholic upbringing
    (and occasional criticism of the church).

    She drew from her faith to write songs like "Like a Prayer" and "Promise to Try." Madonna became
    famous for her juxtaposition of Catholic iconography and sexuality, and one of the ways she did this
    was by wearing classic rosary necklaces with bustier tops and sexy dresses.

    She often layered her rosaries with pearls, chains, and Star of David necklaces.

    Cone Bras


    Famously designed by Jean Paul Gaultier for her Blonde Ambition tour, Madonna rocked the
    cone bra well through the '90s. It became a sartorial staple of her performances.

    Though the original bra sold for around $20,000 in a 2001 pop memorabilia auction, Gaultier
    designed a collection of new ones for the Material Girl's MDNA tour in 2012.

    Cloth Headbands


    If there was ever a cheaper, cooler way to keep your hair back in the '80s,
    then we've never heard of it.

    Madonna basically made it cool to tear up your old bedsheets and tie them up in
    a bow on top of your head.
