Madonna in Cannes

Posted on August 08, 2014

JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL, when did Madonna turn 85 years old? When did she turn into Edina Monsoon? EXISTENTIAL CRISIS PENDING.

A fashion ICON, ladies and gentlemen. She’s insane. Somebody stop her.

All of Generation X just went running to a mirror to make sure they didn’t accidentally wake up 30 years into their future.

And before anyone rags on us, consider that the sum total value of what she’s wearing probably costs more than the average wedding gown.

  • For Pete’s sake, give up on the gloves, Madge.

    • juniper

      those are vanity gloves right? If I was an aging pop icon and the skin on my hands was aging I would want to cover them as much as possible to further deny that I was anything but 26.

      think about it: the part of the body that gets the most sun exposure that we see of ourselves without a mirror.

      …do I just sound vain now?

      • mixedupfiles

        It just draws attention to them. You see Madge, you think, she hates her hands, and then you wonder just how horrible her hands could be. You’re not focused on her, you’re focused on the thing she doesn’t want you to see.

        • juniper

          agreed, totally- evidenced by this conversation.

          it draws our attention to it but denial creates a la la land where logic like that hardly applies.

        • venusvelvet

          Like Karl with his neck concealer get-ups. To me, it has the opposite effect of aging him.

        • MarTeaNi

          Sarah Jessica Parker needs to give Madge a pep talk on just Living With It. Time happens, let it go.

      • Sam Smith

        All true, but the gloves just draw attention to what you are trying to hide.

      • lynnlee

        For awhile there were a lot of cracks about her super veiney hands. I can remember hearing jokes about them on tv. They looked very odd compared to rest of her. Like creepy witch hands. I read that hands like that come from the kind of intense workouts she does. Then she started wearing gloves.

        • DuBey2

          Thank you for the info. Now I remember some of that. I guess I just feel sad that we can be so cruel to each other & to our pop stars &/or anyone else.

    • BerlinerNYC

      She’s on vacation with her family in August at the beach, getting onto a boat. They aren’t just vanity gloves, they’re protecting her hands from further sun damage. Throwing shade at someone for covering up before going out in the sun isn’t just bitchy, it’s irresponsible. Maybe she should be topless and just slathered with baby oil for that all-over tan?

      • @Biting Panda

        She wears them at nearly all, even evening, functions. While protection may be on her list of concerns, a strong SPF and disappearing zinc oxide, would have sufficed.

        • BerlinerNYC

          That’s why I wrote “not ‘just’ vanity gloves”—I’ve seen the pictures. But if you’re a trained expert on dermatology and UV damage, I’ll defer to your authority.

          • @Biting Panda

            You’re a trained expert. On saccharine.

          • formerlyAnon

            You know, I miss the way Tab tasted in the old days. I know they left in some of the old school sweetener, which is why I still have one occasionally. But it’s not the same.

            (Yes, I drank diet soda as child in the ’60s. Tab or Fresca, those were our choices, mes enfants.)

          • demidaemon

            HA! 😉

      • kerryev

        Except she also wears them to nighttime events.

        • BerlinerNYC

          See my reply to BitingPanda. No one really reads closely anymore.

          • kerryev

            Biting Panda & I owe each other a Coke.

          • demidaemon

            Everyone is on fire today! I love it.

          • Nobody in the whole world, it’s such a shame…

          • You’re being unnecessarily bitchy to your fellow commenters. No one is obligated to read all of your responses to other people before responding to you.

      • EveEve

        Rented chateau to chauffeured Bentley in driveway: 50 feet. Bentley to yacht gangplank: 10 feet. Gangplank to yacht bimini: 20 feet. If you’re worried about sun exposure on the backs of your aging hands, stick them in your pockets. Or have one of those bodygiards hold an umbrella over your head.

        She looks flat out ridiculous in that getup.

      • They’re leather Chanel driving gloves. They look ridiculous on her, in that setting – and she wears them all the time, regardless of whether she’s in the sun or not.

      • not_Bridget

        Then, why isn’t she dressed for a family sailing vacation? Why isn’t she wearing some deck shoes that actually fit? And she wears those damn gloves everywhere–even on the Red Carpet.

  • LondonMarriott


    I kinda dig the shoes, though.

    • kbshee

      Are they backless? Or is she stomping down the back?

    • Patrick Scott

      But the shoes, it looks like she just stomped the backs of them down to turn them into slides of some sort?

      • LondonMarriott

        Huh. Well scratch that comment but keep the ERMAHMERDGE. If you held a gun to my head and made me like something I’ll go with the hat instead.

        • Boulderista

          Even though it’s attached to the jacket? You don’t get to pick one or the other.

      • Freynika

        I wonder what they ever did to her? It’s not like she should be in costume to dress for family/friends, so if they don’t fit or hurt, then why bother with them at all?

      • spirit52

        lazy bitch…just stopped on them!

      • queen b*tch

        Should’ve read the comments before I posted! My thoughts exactly. If you want slides love, buy slides. It’s not like you’re short of a bob or two.

  • kimmeister

    She even sports the gloves around family and friends. Must be tiring to be so overwhelmingly self-conscious about one body part.

    Also, there are expert levels of pattern mixing, but this ain’t it. And the shoes are abominable.

    • ItAin’tMe

      I think you can get fillers injected into the backs of your hands to plump them up. Maybe she should try that.

    • DuBey2

      Its starting to remind me of when Michael Jackson kept his face, especially his nose, covered up a lot and we never really figured out if it was from many nose reduction surgeries or some skin disease where his skin kept getting lighter or bleached looking… I hope she doesn’t have a more serious issue with her hands than just vanity.

  • Boulderista

    Her hat is tethered to her jacket – that made me snort with laughter.

    • altermyego

      It’s common for sailors to attach their hat to their jacket or shirt. Otherwise you’d have to buy a new hat after every trip out to sea. Usually the way it’s attached is with a clip. Leave it to Madonna to find a couteur way of doing it. Hope I didn’t take away the laughter you got out of it. It’s still funny but with a purpose.

      • MRC210

        I think you mean boaters, not sailors? But I know what you mean – a simple little cord with alligator clips on each end. It makes Madge’s outfit with its matching built-in attachment look even more silly and pretentious, when there’s a simple and functional alternative.

  • My heart is full.

  • MaryMG

    Yacht guy is extremely hot, though.

    • homofascist

      Um yeah. He can fill out a tight white polo shirt…

    • Patrick Scott

      I was so distracted by the black and white, seizure inducing, pattern mixing, I didn’t EVEN NOTICE HOT YACHT GUY. I need to give back my gay card.

    • JR Labrador

      L’handleur français. Mais oui.

    • Another entry for our BK calendar. July, perhaps?

      • Anna

        In a beret and tight shorts!

        • Skippymom1

          For a July calendar pic, I could forgive a man Speedos.

          • Anna

            As a former competitive swimmer who spent her teen years around guys in speedos, I agree. Especially when man in question looks like this one.

          • formerlyAnon

            Serious male swimmers have a fucking amazing hip-to-shoulder width ratio.

          • Anna

            Yep, perfect proportions. And I lurve men’s swimming during the Olympics (and any other high-level competition). Ironic that my dad enrolled me in swimming to keep me out of trouble. Once the boys got taller and started developing muscles, it was like HEL-LO.

            I admire athletic female figures too, though.

        • majorbedhead

          No, no, just with a strategically placed baguette.

    • Tigerfly

      I was so appalled by Madge that I missed a hot handler. You KNOW it’s bad…

  • CelandineM

    Is that hat attached to the jacket??? I don’t even have any words right now.

    • what not

      Yes, how is this not everyone’s first question? What is that mismatched nightmare combo?

  • suzanne77

    Who’s that girl?

    • Pablo Ulloa

      actually the first thought that came to mind was …. “WHO’S THAT GUY!?”…. damn… that “seaman” <3

  • MRC210

    Walking on folded-over heels? That’s not how you treat shoes, Madge. I know those shoes are ugly, but still.

  • kbshee

    Would love to see the others on that ‘yacht’.

  • Emily Dagger

    If you can take the time to make sure every single one of your 9000 pieces of clothing is black and white pattern, you can take the time to make sure you don’t look like an insane mime grandma. (Hint: making sure NOT every single piece of clothing is black and white pattern is a good start down this path)

    Also, those gloves are Chanel, which makes me kind of want to burn the handful of Chanel things I own in protest.

    • Anathema_Device

      She missed the memo on pattern mixing: never do prints all in the same scale. She obviously missed lots of other memos.

    • myandyleigh

      Well, if you’re looking for gaudy hand hiders, Uncle Karl has just the thing in his personal stash…..

    • kimmeister

      That might be the first time in the history of ever that the words “insane mime grandma” have been paired together. I love it!

  • Patrick Scott

    All y’all’s comments are making me laugh!

  • Carrie

    She’s moments away from creepily peeking out an attic window isn’t she?

  • Anna

    Bubbe Esther looks adorable.

    • Lisalady161

      HAH! You win!

  • Anathema_Device

    The full hilarity for me is that those shoes aren’t mules/slides. She’s just crushing down the heel. If she couldn’t bother to look in a mirror, she sure as hell can’t bother to stop to put her shoes on properly.

    And I’m guessing that’s a Stella McCartney for Adidas jacket.

    • makeityourself

      And they look like spikeless golf shoes.

      • DuBey2

        Is there a golf course on the yacht?

    • what not

      If she can slap an asymmetric ruffle on a dress and call it Stella, she can leash a mismatched hat to an athletic jacket and do the same.

  • whaddami

    wow — Grey Gardens calls……

    • clatie

      And we have a winner!!!

  • siriuslover

    “All of Generation X just went running to a mirror to make sure they didn’t accidentally wake up 30 years into their future.”
    I know I just did, that’s for sure. Expensive it may be, but so hideous. Everything about that look is hideous.

  • guest2visits

    I imagine this is just her way of going under cover…. or not. I no longer ask WHY MADONNA.

  • Thomas

    Madonna is undoubtedly an icon, but I’ve never considered her a fashion icon. Yes, she wore the cone bra and yes, some people might have copied her style and hairstyles, but I’ve never thought her red carpet fashion or street style was all that good.

    • FibonacciSequins

      I agree. She excelled at appropriating and assimilating the zeitgeist. Note my use of past tense.

    • DuBey2


    • ShaoLinKitten

      I’m old enough to remember when she was a style icon. Everyone, I mean EVERYONE wore those rubber bracelets, the rosary, the crop tops, the rag in their hair. She was super influential in the 80s. I can’t speak to her red carpet looks, since I was a kid and not following it back then, but when it came to street style, she was the queen for a while. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

      • Thomas

        I mean, I guess she was a style icon, but I wouldn’t put her in the same league as Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Cate Blanchett, etc.

        • ShaoLinKitten

          She was very of the moment. She didn’t maintain a lifetime of fashion forward stylishness (OBVIOUSLY). No way she is up there with Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly. However, she made her mark. It makes me sad to see how weird she’s gotten. I used to admire her so much.

  • CKMia

    Well, she’s got the money to be considered eccentric (vs. weird).

  • James

    Cannot unsee. And I really really want to. Where’s the alcohol.

    • decormaven

      Thank heavens I poured a glass before viewing these pictures.

  • Sherilyne Cox

    Chanel and Addidas!???! This all began when she kissed that little redneck, Brittney Spears.

  • Frank_821

    I strangely dig the hat

    Yacht guy I dig even more

  • 3boysful

    That skirt is nightmarish.

  • ellisd123

    This must be Esther, not Madonna.

  • TheRealAndra

    Looks like Vera Bradley swallowed a bottle of ipecac.

  • tallgirl1204

    I kind of like this.

  • Mr. J.

    It’s not 30 years into the future….I loved her when she sang her bubblegum songs and wore her rubber bracelets….but that was, indeed, 30 years ago. Now, as a crazy old lady, the Doris Duke of pop….no. I can’t even go there.

  • artgirl9


  • kerryev

    I thought she might actually be having a little bit of fun until I saw the branded glovelets, which gave me the giggle-snorts.

    • clatie

      I KNOW, RIGHT?! Hilariously horrendous.

  • brown-eyed girl

    Psychotic break?

  • @Biting Panda


  • MilaXX

    Is she dressing as an extra on the latest AbFab series?

  • mommyca

    She probably would have looked perfectly fine if she would have let go of her vanity and let herself age naturally. Yes, continue exercising and trying to be healthy, but the botox, fillers or whatever she has put on her face are making her look even worse! And please, enough already with the gloves: WE NOW KNOW YOU ARE HIDING YOUR WRINKLY HANDS!!! (normal for your age, dear)… The whole thing is pretty sad…

  • nannypoo

    Oh for god’s sake.

  • spirit52

    what a shitful look

  • THE SHOES THE SHOES!! OMFG, I haven’t seen that particular brand of hideous, dangerous and totally ghetto type of personalization since well, I’m not saying, but it’s been a long ass time. All they need are the pinkie toe cutout done with a razor blade. Madge, honey, you need help.

  • FibonacciSequins

    She can’t stop and she won’t stop.

  • PinkyK

    Are those shoes mules or is she standing on the backs of her shoes like a Granny at the laundromat?

    • FibonacciSequins


    • rh33

      Standing on the backs.

    • PinkyK

      Ugh horrible!

  • GorgeousThings

    Those pictures just make me sad. She’s a couple of years older than I am. And I understand wanting to protect yourself from the sun. And I also understand wanting to be comfortable in your off-hours, when you wear Gaultier and 7 inch heels at work.

    But Jesus H. Christ, she looks like she’s ready to launch a tongue stinger into someone’s throat as an extra on “The Strain”. Scary beyond all reason.

  • Skippymom1

    I’m in a “if you can’t say something nice” mood today – so here goes:
    Hot yacht guy is scrumdealy-icious.
    [How’d I do?]

    • Lisalady161

      You did really, really well. I was trying not to chortle at her online and I did take a second (third, fourth) look at HYG. He looks absolutely great.

  • PastryGoddess

    Lainey did the math. the ages of her kids and boyfriend add up to 56..her age. Lola is 17, Rocco is 13 and Boytoy is 26.

    • FibonacciSequins


  • formerlyAnon

    Those shoes are hideous. She has money. She could find boat-appropriate soled shoes that are not hideous. Or, rather, her staff could.

    I cannot comment on the rest because it does not compute.

    • clatie

      She is notoriously cheap. A friend of mine was set to work with her but the project fell apart. Her office sent him flowers. When she found out, she fired the person who ordered them for spending her money without asking. True story.

      • formerlyAnon

        I am appalled. That’s the kind of gesture you pay people to make for you, not fire them for having made it. Ah well. I suppose she knows of too many instances where it’s gotten out of hand, because it can do that.

    • Constant Reader

      But those shoes aren’t even boat-appropriate because they have leather soles. So they are ugly AND impractical. Of course, I’m sure nobody told Madge she had to go barefoot on the boat like they would do to almost anyone else who showed up in leather-soled shoes.

      • formerlyAnon

        Ha. I simply assumed they were boat-appropriate because: why else wear them? I suppose a glance upward at the ensemble should have proved the futility of that logic.

        • Constant Reader

          After I posted my comment I thought that maybe she had boating shoes in her tote bag, but then that means she wore these for style which just makes me sad.

  • Janet B

    Happy to know she won’t lose her hat when the boat goes fast.

  • LuluBI

    This is awesome

  • I was expecting disappointment. I wasn’t expecting a Magic Eye outfit. If you cross your eyes and then uncross them slowly, does a better outfit magically appear before your eyes? No?
    Please stop trying so hard, Madge. I’m exhausted just looking at this outfit.

  • Malibufire

    Sadly, I cannot unsee this. Uncles, I blame you.

  • I’m assuming she uses retin-a or something that makes her skin photosensitive, but seriously, there are ways of doing full-coverage that don’t involve stupid hats that are pinned to stupid jackets.

  • cocohall

    What is the point of looking young? Seriously? She is going to extreme lengths to appear youthful. So extreme that any one who actually is young would run in horror from the crazy emanating from Ms. Ciccone. This is just sad. She used to be a badass. I need to find a dark, quiet room and regroup.

  • LibKat

    She looks like one of the Grey Gardens women. Tragic, simply tragic.

  • jeaniemarie

    She needs to stop shopping online.

  • traceyishere

    LITTLE EDIE!!!!!!

  • frannyprof

    She simply CANNOT carry that bulky sweatshirt one…more…step.

  • Mefein

    It’s funny how both Edina Monsoon and Little Edie are coming to mind. Makes me wonder if Jennifer Saunders was thinking of Little Edie at all when she created Edina with her eccentric fashion sense, but took her in a more avaricious, shallower direction, comically despicable instead of tragically brave. But then I can absolutely imagine Madonna not so deliberately meaning to channel Little Edie and totally coming out Edina instead!

  • SewingSiren

    I smell an new face and neck!

  • SewingSiren

    Seriously , is that hat tethered to the jacket with a grosgrain ribbon? I’m also getting a Claude Rains Invisible Man vibe. Anybody else?

  • Denise Rambo

    Chanel make weight-lifter gloves?

  • enchanted216

    U ain’t kiddin’, TLo!! Wow.

  • SugarSnap108

    I think you’re being terribly unfair to 85-year-olds.

  • majorbedhead

    I just can’t even. I have lost the ability to even.

  • yllas

    Can something be DONE about hands? my own are ghastly! but the rich n famous should have resources. The outfit is kinda frumpy and all bundled up like she has a fever chill. Stupid to the max. On the other hand she is wearing an outfit that costs as much as my car, is getting on a yacht in the south of France with family and friends, and so we may as we’ll be barking dogs as far as Madge goes.

    • aahlife

      yes, there is surgery to plump up hands.

  • greymain

    If you’re going to wear gloves just freaking wear gloves…FULL gloves like cotton or silk crochet gloves. These are just fugly workout gloves.

  • marlie

    Just because it’s ALL black and white doesn’t mean that it all goes, AT ONCE. Also, I can’t believe she’s still wearing those ridiculous gloves.

  • katetastrophe

    I worked on yachts for a lot of years and I’m not trying to make excuses for the fug that’s going on here, but usually when one boards the boat one takes off their shoes. Shoes are generally not allowed to be worn on deck. Perhaps she mashed down the backs of her shoes out of anticipation of shoe removal. However, I do see one of the crew members wearing shoes so it seems like this boat does not have a no shoe policy which is unusual. Also, the ribbon holding on the hat is very practical as the wind does not give a fuck if you’re an aging pop star. If the wind wants your hat, the wind will take your hat and give it to Neptune as a gift.

    • “if you’re an aging pop star.”

      What gets me is that she’s only 55…Most of us in that age range wouldn’t consider that “aging” but she sure looks like it in this photo, doesn’t she? I was shocked when I found out she’s only a year older than me. The way she acts, I thought she was much older than mid-50s!

      • katetastrophe

        You know, you’re right. Aging is definitely the wrong term for it. At least for most people it’s just middle age, but she is walking around looking positively geriatric. Granted, a geriatric who could probably kick my ass, but still.

  • cwade1211

    Why is the hat attached to the jacket? Why?

  • evave2

    She looks like Fedora. And the girl who became Fedora. Lordie.

  • Tee

    Edina Monsoon’s morning outfit for Patsy’s funeral.

  • MEO

    she’ll never give up on the gloves….. old lady hands. notice she also covers her knees and elbows….. some things plastic surgery just can’t fix!

    • aahlife

      and she also covers her neck.

  • understateddiva

    It’s like a walking runway show, though. I see a lot of individual pieces I kinda want.

  • quiltrx

    To quote a friend of mine–that’s a whole hell of a lot of way too much.

  • SophieCollier

    Betcha she just had her neck done.

    • Columbinia

      That explains so much.

  • LadyLuck777

    Huh. If the hat attaches to the jacket, then there must also be one of those slots inside the jacket to put her address in case she gets lost and someone finds her.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    If you hadn’t written in your headline that this was Madonna, I would have never known. But who is that yummy plaid shorts man?

  • Peeve

    Are you sure she’s not just fucking with you?

  • BrooklynBomber

    Hold me. I’m frightened.

  • Columbinia

    Another eccentric Manhattan heiress look. Those look to be golf shoes of Katharine Hepburn vintage. The hat might also be from the Hepburn estate. Has she put the jacket on backwards? The lace on the skirt …. And she’s carrying an extra hoodie?

  • Tanya Wade

    I have a birthday coming up, and asked my husband if I was dressing too young. Now, I feel I needn’t have worried. Good news for Hawt Kiwi on Project Runway: Clearly, there’s a market for the Mood-lined hat he made. Ladies and Gentlemen, Aunt Esther.

  • Judy_J

    Before I read the caption, I thought she must be vacationing in the Swiss Alps or something. She looks ridiculous compared to the people around her in their summer attire. There are ways to dress for sun protection without looking like Nanook of the North. And the competing patterns are making my eyes twitch.

  • Beto

    Do you guys noticed that when Mrs Madge Ciccone goes in her everyday life she doesn’t care a shit about her daily outfit? She choses comfortability with the “I don’t care if this thing combines with this another thing” attitude. She actually get self-aware of her wardrobe when she’s promoting her work (movie, music, book, whatever). In other topic WHO IS THE MAN WITH THE TIGHT POLO SHIRT? Hot as hell.

  • psychoblonde

    I could forgive her if she was smuggling something. Exotic meats on an international flight? A book by Sartre because she’s a closeted nerd? But alas, she’s just trying to hide her age and protect herself from the sun. Such as a shame.

    • DuBey2

      She’s smuggling something alrighty. Bad taste.

  • MoHub

    Edina would never wear this. This is more urban bag lady.

  • mcbishop
