Today in Madonna History: September 22, 2017

On September 22 2017, Madonna released a hilarious video to promote the MDNA skincare line (released at Barney’s in the USA on Tuesday September 26). In the video, directed by David Sabshon (filmed on July 25), Madonna was joined by Instagram starJosh Ostrovsky (commonly known as The Fat Jewish).

Here’s part of the hilarious dialog between the two:

“You know what I think, Josh? Pampering is the key to youth. I spray my face with Rose Mist spray, and I feel like I’m walking through a garden”

Fat Jew responds: “People ask my all the time, why do you look so glowing? Like you’re pregnant. And I say it’s because I mist myself with Rosé all day long.”

When Madonna asks if she can try the Rosé, “Will it send me down a spiral of shame?”

“You’re gonna make some really questionable decisions,” Fat Jew says.

“I’ve been doing that for 33 years,” Madonna points out.

On November 14 2008, Steven Meisel shot the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2009 collection photoshoot, featuring Madonna, at Café Figaro in Los Feliz, California.

Madonna transformed into Marc Jacob’s vision of the quintessential Parisienne, striking provocative poses in the season’s sexy short skirts, ethnic-inspired sandals and animal-print bangles.

“I wanted the campaign to be very bold, very sensual and very atmospheric. To carry off all these references and all this sophistication, we needed the ultimate performer – and for me, that is Madonna,” stated Jacobs.

Stylist: Marie-Amélie Sauvé

On April 7 2005, a new Versace campaign featuring Madonna appeared in Belgian Marie Claire.

Donatella Versace describes the campaign:

“When thinking of Madonna, you won’t picture an average business woman. But that’s exactly how she was photographed by Mario Testino for the latest campaign. Talking on the phone in her fancy office, Madonna shows off the summer collection.

She’s an icon, a chameleon, a trendsetter, and she’s the best in her profession. It doesn’t matter how old you are, everybody wants to identify himself with Madonna.”

On July 20 2010, photos by Steven Klein for Dolce and Gabbana’s Fall Winter 2010/2011 ad campaign featuring Madonna surfaced on the internet.

Capturing an Italian family lead by the matriarchal figure of Madonna, the campaign told the story of a close knit family.  From a family portrait to a meal at the table, the images showed a new direction for the Italian luxury brand.
