We’re gonna do Madge a solid here.
Madonna attends the Bridgestone Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show Press Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana in Jean Paul Gaultier couture.
Because anyone that shows up for a Super Bowl press conference in Indianapolis wearing Gaultier couture just doesn’t deserve our bitchery.

Putting Madonna in Gaultier is always going to call to mind past looks and past glories because they both helped each other’s careers out tremendously and in many ways, each holds a lot of responsibility for the other’s success and/or persona. So yeah, this is “Express Yourself” redux, but we actually don’t mind. We rag on her a lot for not doing all that great a job of dealing with middle age, but that doesn’t mean she needs to ditch everything about herself that made her a star, either. We don’t want to see the cone bra in 2012, but this makes for a nice reminder of the Madge we fell in love with back in the day. Menswear + Panties. What else could we ask for from her?
Is it a great look? Mmmm. Maybe. The vest is too short for our liking and we think Madge should reconsider going without sleeves, but there’s an attitude to it we kind of admire.
