Today in Madonna History: May 2, 2017

On May 2 2017, Madonna was featured on the Evening Standard with the headline: Met Gala 2017: Sarah Paulson fangirls over Madonna as she photobombs her on the red carpet.  

Here’s a bit more from the article:

The US actress, 42, fangirled over the Queen of Pop after she spotted her on the red carpet at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.

Paulson was pictured pointing with her mouth agape as she photobombed Madonna.

The pair later fooled around in front of photographers as Paulson offered to position Madonna’s Moschino camo gown.

The moment didn’t go unnoticed on Twitter as users praised Paulson’s “priceless” reaction and hailed them as the “greatest duo of all time”.

Madonna made sure to stand out with her outfit which she accessorised with necklaces, a gold grill and a hip flask.

Speaking about her dress, she told Entertainment Tonight: “We knew we wanted to go with camouflage from the very start. We started with the flak jacket, and then we worked our way down. So, you know, we’re ready. We’re ready to go to fashion war.”

“It’s going to be a fun night. As long as I drink the rest of my canteen.”

On May 5 2009, Madonna attended The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala Ball with Jesus Luz (boyfriend), Guy Oseary (her manager) and her publicist Liz Rosenberg.

Here’s what Marie Claire had to say about Madonna’s MET appearance:

Madonna blows minds with bunny ears! Madonna was back to her attention-grabbing best last night, stepping out for her first red carpet appearance with toyboy lover Jesus Luz at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala ball. And it wasn’t just the arm candy that got tongues wagging. The Queen of Pop brought out her 80s side, taking the evening’s dress theme – The Model As Muse: Embodying Fashion’ and running with it. Dressed in a navy blue ruched Louis Vuitton mini dress, thigh-high black boots and the black fingerless gloves of old, Madge completed her ensemble with a teal-coloured hair piece tied around a top knot. The style chameleon’s get-up didn’t put off beau of the moment though, as 22-year-old toy-boy, Jesus Luz, showed up at fashion’s most stylish annual bash, looking super suave in a slick black dinner jacket and waited attentively as the flashbulbs went into overdrive for his date. The pair has frequently been spotted out and about in New York in recent weeks but last night was the couple’s first outing as a confirmed item and the duo couldn’t have cared less about the ensuing gossip.
