Flashback Friday: Celebrate Madonna's 55th Birthday With A Retro Special

Today is Madge's 55th birthday, so to get into the groove we have put together a serious style retrospective. We don't need to tell you that Madonna in an icon. She is the lady who did Lady Gaga before Lady Gaga, made crosses a fashion statement and Vogue-ing a 'thing.' Plus she smooched Britney and has been featured on Glee

In our Madonna tribute we've got her boxing in the gym, hanging with Jean Michel and posing next to the NY skyline. We've also dug out retro magazine covers of the Material Girl, as she rocked fingerless gloves for The Face and managed to keep her clothes on for her Playboy cover. Told ya, inn-ov-at-or.

Fashion-wise we've got Madge in an 'Italians do it better' tee, explosive headbands and printed scrunchies (before they were crucified by Carrie Bradshaw, that is.) You won't find a gallery with more paintbox makeup, crosses and lace. Oh and there are lots and lots of images of Madonna in her pants, after all she is the original champion of underwear as outerwear.

So put on your headphones, listen to Like A Virgin and take a trip down Madonna memory lane. To have a real Madge moment shop her style staples below...
