Madonna plays the muse of modern music in ‘The Art Issue’ shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott for Interview Magazine, December 2014. Always one to push the limits of society, this superstar shows us that true beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Creativity connects in this powerful piece of unyielding passion. To be a believer in “Madonna” is one thing, to appreciate her ability to push through the pious penchants of pop culture is quite another. Fashion Editor, Arianne Phillips, lets seduction speak with noir styles by Agent Provocateur, Alexander McQueen, Coco de Mer, Fendi, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, Gucci, Mordekai by Ken Borochov, Nina Ricci, Prada & The Way We Wore. The Material Girl shines, as (Makeup Artist) Lucia Pieroni uses the power of pretty to penetrate the page. Bleached out and beautiful, the brows relent, as her features steal the show. Hairstylist, Andy Lecompte, brings the Blonde Ambition back with perfectly coiffed pin-curls falling down her face. Hard and soft meet, with an iron masked finale topped with a single flower. Illusionist, David Blaine, gets deeply introspective with, Madonna Louise Ciccone, showing us that true art isn’t touched by time.
