Dress du Jour: Madonna’s ‘Living for Love’ Bodysuit

The Dress: A custom matador bodysuit designed by Lebanese-born Shady Zein Eldine.

The Wearer: Madonna, who’ll be performing at Sunday’s Grammys.

The Occasion: Madge’s music video for “Living for Love” — the first single from her new album, Rebel Heart — which premiered Thursday on Snapchat.

Why We Dig: Never one to settle for boring style — who could forget her iconic bra cones? — the Material Girl proves she’s still got it when it comes to upping the sex appeal. The custom-made bodysuit, which Madge wears while being surrounded by a clad of chiseled guys she refers to as “Minotaurs,” features a nude satin-stretch corset covered in three different types of lace, a black chiffon silk top and a satin tie. And yes, her figure looks as toned as ever, even at at age 56. Styled by B. Akerlund, Madonna also gets down in the video wearing a torero-inspired outfit. Check out the clip here.

Madonna’s ‘Living For Love’ Video Is The Singer’s Best Work In A Decade


Madonna dropped off the music video for “Living for Love” on Snapchat’s doorstep Thursday afternoon, inching closer toward the (official) release of her 13th studio album, “Rebel Heart,” on March 10.

The clip finds Madonna playing matador to a host of men dressed as bulls in a red arena that glitters like a Latin-infused “Moulin Rouge!” Its imagery matches the anthemic heft for which many applauded the track when it hit iTunes in December. For a song that carries the torch of “Express Yourself,” the singer dons a leotard reminiscent of 2005’s iconic “Hung Up” and emerges victorious amid an army that stands no chance against a warrior who “picked up my crown [and] put it back on my head” — a sentiment especially potent in the wake of the multiple leaks that have plagued her new music.

This is Madonna’s theater, after all. Football players fawned over her in “Give Me All Your Luvin” and she gyrated her way through a callback to the provocateur years in the black-and-white “Girl Gone Wild” sleek videos whose self-referential undertones did not double as suitable extensions of Madonna’s legacy. Here, no matter the aforementioned comparisons to her 33-year career, she channels the new breakup anthem for something else: Madonna presents herself as queen of the big top without relying on allusions to her own résumé to prove she is the master of the postmodern pop scene. She uses her ongoing prowess to vanquish the beasts who grunt and shove their way across her stage. This is the Madonna video we’ve waited a decade for, and it hails from what sounds like the makings of the Madonna album we’ve anticipated for just as long.

As of now, you’ll have to head to Snapchat’s Discover page to watch the “Living for Love” clip, which was directed by French duo Julien Choquart and Camille Hirigoyen, otherwise known as J.A.C.K., and edited by Danny B. Tull, who worked on “4 Minutes” and several other Madonna videos. HuffPost Entertainment will embed the video here as soon as it appears online.
