Happy Birthday Madonna! Here's To 54 Years Of Iconic Style

17 August 2012 by

Can you believe that Madonna turns 54 today? Neither can we. Aside from looking at least fifteen years younger, the legendary popstar's fashion choices are more outrageous than the average teenage girl's.

Well known for continually reinventing her look, the Queen of Pop has tried her hand at being everything from a super-glam Material Girl to a spiritual New Age hippy. She's created iconic fashion moments that will go down in history, from THAT conical bra that inspired sexual empowerment to the Louis Vuttion ensemble which she wore to the Met Ball and kick-started a fashion frenzy for bunny ears.

Her sartorial swishes have inspired the trend-setters of today including Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani and Katy Perry, as well as designers including Dolce & Gabbana and Jean Paul Gaultier. Plus, despite being a mother of three, still has the power to wow the world with her musical and dancing talents, as proved when she took her fash-tastic wardrobe on her MDNA tour this year. She now has her own Truth Or Dare range that boasts a fragrance and footwear collection, as well as a teen-tastic line, Material Girl, with ridiculously cool daughter Lourdes - and let's not forget she's tried her hand at directing too.

So on her special day, let's pay homage to her fashion choices, which may not always have hit the right notes, but then again she was never going to play it safe, was she? Fearless and original - that's what it takes to become a true fashion icon. Take a look through the gallery above for 20 of our favourite Madonna style moments...
