Just when you thought the Dolce & Gabbana controversy was dying down, one very big name has added her voice to the discussion: longtime fan of the brand (and its former face) Madonna.
Madonna‘s fall wasn’t so graceful at the Brit Awards, but the singer certainly handled the fallout as gracefully as possible. The 56-year-old superstar tumbled after a dancer tugged too hard on her long, black cape during her performance last week, sparking a ton of Vines and memes. And though she bounced right back up from the fall, she admitted it hurt — and said the cape was partly to blame.
“Everybody was worried that my cape was going to slide off because it’s quite heavy, so they tied it really tight around my neck,” she says. “So here I am marching in like a queen, and I got to the top of the stairs and I pulled my silky string, and it would not come undone. And my two lovely Japanese dancers basically strangled me off the stage. I had a choice: I could either be strangled or fall with the cape, and I fell.” But now designer Giorgio Armani is defending his creation.

Bull fighting. Love. Romance. Heartbreak. Madonna promised all these things of her Grammys performance. And she made sure to look the part on the red carpet, dressing as a sexy dominatrix matador (it’s a thing) in a custom Givenchy ensemble.

It’s been a minute since we’ve seen a star flash his (or her) grill around. But David Arquette changed that, stepping out in West Hollywood Tuesday with golden teeth. According to Arquette, however, it’s not a fashion statement; rather, it’s a dental health matter.

Some Madonna super-fans are dressing up in her clothes right now.
Julien’s Auctions, one of the largest celebrity, entertainment and sports memorabilia auction houses, sold select pieces from the superstar’s famous wardrobe during the two-day Icons & Idols: Roll n’ Roll bidding event in Beverly Hills. Among the items on the block were the gown and stole from her “Material Girl” video, the jacket from her film Desperately Seeking Susan and the dress she wore for her 1985 wedding to Sean Penn, which nabbed the highest bid.
