Madonna, the Queen of pop, turns 60 today. While dominating the 1980s, 1990s and present with infamous pop culture moments, controversial stunts and hit singles, over the past few decades Madonna has also cemented herself as a fashion icon – each look carefully curated to match whatever project, look or event she’s currently working on.
From establishing the look of the Eighties to her ongoing collaborative relationship with Jean Paul Gaultier, we take a look back at Madonna’s most fashion moments.

Madonna burst onto the music and celebrity scene in 1983 with her debut self-titled album. Her trademark look featured heavy, bright eye make-up, big bows in her hair, jewellery aplenty and brightly coloured Eighties leggings.
