Madonna at the Billboard Awards
Madonna – Queen of Pop, fitter than most 18 year olds at aged 54 and still popping and locking all over the place, turned up at the Billboard awards last night to take delivery of her three awards; Top Dance Album, Top Touring Artist, and Top Dance Artist. Bravo and congratulations Madonna! The outfit she chose for this occasion? Giant black knickers with fishnet stockings, suspernders and a curious fishnet over-skirt. We say skirt, although, as the Daily Mail would almost certainly have it, left very little to the imagination at all. Look closely you will also see some fishnet sleeves poking out from her gorrilla-style furry jacket. And why not?
Madonna at the Met Ball this year
Only a week or two earlier, Madonna rocked up at this year’s punk-themed Met Ball, having accessorized her Givenchy By Riccardo Tisci tartan and studded ensemble with fishnet tights under black hold-ups and a flash of underbum.
On closer inspection, she also appeared to be wearing a fishnet top and fishnet arms. ‘Holy fishnets Batman!’ Lourdes might possibly have screamed, when she saw her mother’s attire – ‘you can’t leave the house like that!’ But according to rumour on the night, Madonna decided to prioritise the outfit over her daughter’s company and went to the Ball with her boyfriend, while Lourdes stayed away.
When Madonna went on her blockbusting MDNA tour, she managed to incorporate fishnets into every stage ensemble, which is kind of understandable, seeing how she is doing rather a lot of dancing, which is what they’re supposed to be for, right?
Madonna at other red-carpet events rockin' the fishnet look
But after a bit of reminiscing about her red-carpet appearances over the past few years, it is absolutely true that Madonna has a real preponderance for the holey hosiery. Poor old Lourdes, it looks like she’s fighting a losing battle on this one . . .
