Anyone who scoffs at the oft-expressed idea that Madonna is a fashion icon should take a good long look here. Her ’80s look has become a classic style and all of us old farts are just going to have to accept that.

There’s nothing wrong with the suit she’s wearing. She can definitely pull off the padded shoulders and pleated pants, but we think sticking a bustier and a whole bunch of rosary-style necklaces underneath it kind of undermines the chicness of the look. The runway look is a sleek, uninterrupted column of white, but the way she’s wearing it pulls the eye right to her waist. Not that there’s anything wrong with her waist, but now all you can see are the pleated pants and the way they widen her lower half. We don’t think the outfit was designed to expose the waistband like that. We don’t mind the bustier-and-rosaries look, but we just don’t think it works with this suit.
