When I think of Madonna and her last ad campaign for Louis Vuitton, I can hardly believe it’s the same person in these pictures.
Looking tired, showing her true age, Madonna can be authentic too. Or at least as close as possible to authenticity. Her hooking up with Steven Klein, lately, didn’t do her a world of favor.
She’s one of the best performers ever, but it doesn’t hurt catching up with reality! Come on, Madge, there’s no shame in showing your age, is there?
On the other hand, her upcoming photo spread for W Magazine
May March 2009 looks a bit of over-airbrushed.
She also introduces her new seducer self since she’s photographed holding tight and approaching for a kiss a waaaay younger man.
That’s the Madonna we know! Photoshop and intimacy! Do you miss Madonna the bourgeois? (photos via ontd)(more pictures and UPDATE added after the jump! )
UPDATE: The first rumors about the W Photo shoot were wrong; the picture appeared in the March 2009 issue of W Magazine. Madonna and Jesus Luz posed for Steven Klein in a photo-story called “Blame It On Rio” (the title appears on the cover of the W Magazine, in pink, and it’s signed xx Madonna)
Even if it raised pulses, the pictorial is convenient for Madonna whose loud divorce shadowed her media personality quite a bit. However, turning the wheel with more and more pictures of older women with younger men isn’t going to change mentalities and moralities.
I guess we’ll have to get used to seeing a celeb taking the main spot in a fashion magazine, no matter the pretext. Don’t we?
