WOW. Madonna looks INCREDIBLE at her 52nd Birthday!

Madonna has come under a lot of flak over the years for her obsession with fighting the signs aging - from those veiny 'masculine' biceps to her self-evident recent face-lift. But when she arrived at Shoreditch House this weekend to celebrate her 52nd birthday (yep), it was hard to argue with the frankly, astonishing results.

With gently waved hair, and barely-there make up, her taut, line-free face and perfect porcelain complexion made her look like a woman twenty years younger. Could it be that Madonna keeps a Dorian Gray portrait next to all those Frida Kahlo paintings she collects?

In fact, the only evidence that Madonna could be anywhere near her real age was the presence of her teenage daughter Lourdes, whose dewy 13-year-old face was not so different from her mother's.

Of course, there's more to growing old gracefully than splurging on surgery or living at the gym. For once, Madonna had ditched her mutton-dressed-as-lamb outfits (her recent directorial wardrobe has been a bizarre jumble of adidas tracksuits, golf socks, old-lady sunhats and gangsta styling - a single rolled up trouser leg) and was wearing a dress that was sophisticated and understated. In a dark shade of silver, the satin shift dress by Dolce & Gabbana showed off her gym-honed body, and included some very un-Madonna figure-flattering detailing - short sleeves to slim the upper arms and side ruching that could disguise any uneven lumps and bumps. Although, ultimately, Madge is all about fashion - the midi-length hemline is very A/W '10. And just in case her outfit was in danger of looking too demure, she added fishnet tights, some Indian hand jewellery, and a clutch bag seemingly adorned with a giant crucifix.

So, Happy Birthday, Madge! And if this low-key sexy elegance is the latest reincarnation for the Queen of Reinvention, then we're seriously considering putting Madonna back on our Best Dressed list...
