Mads, Maddy or Dita – call her what you will but the reigning Queen of the pop music world has always had a tomboy streak in her that she has combined amazingly with her confident and sexy personality. We take a visual journey through all the times Madonna did tomboy style right.
In the world of modern pop music, Madonna reigns supreme. Her dominance of the charts for over three decades is testament to that fact. As a warrior of love, she has time and time again, told critics to STFU, winning them over eventually with her amazing ability to transform and evolve not just musically but in her personal style and looks on and off stage.
Madonna has also been one of the few commercial pop artistes to have embraced gender fluidity throughout her career, bulldozing through the stereotypes of gender and allowing herself to experiment with androgyny, trans-sexualism, bondage and yes, even tomboy style. Her ability to constantly keep her image fresh and new is also what has made her such a global icon in the contemporary entertainment world and beyond.
She, along with Prince and Michael Jackson (god rest their souls) were the Holy Trinity of the peak of pop music and its effect on fashion and as fans of her classic tomboy style, we decided to showcase what we think are the 15 times Madonna did tomboy style some justice. Enjoy!
