If imitation is the greatest form of flattery, them Nimue Smit has given Madonna the highest praise possible in Philip Riches’ editorial homage for Glamour Netherlands. Channeling the star during her Truth or Dare years, Smit delivers a modern day Blonde Ambition rendition, par excellence. Giving new life to this much covered persona, stylist Renu Kayshap reinterprets 90’s style with an avant-garde edge. Taking the best parts of the era and fusing them with today’s exotic mix of mesh and lace, she captures the essence of the original trend without the vintage effect. And with a triumphant beauty presentation that follows suit, we see the combined efforts of retro-modern styling at it’s best. An ode to the spirit of artistic abandon, Riches’ images remind us why this icon has left such an indelible mark on the fabric of pop-culture.
