Music and fashion always seem to go hand in hand. The aesthetic style of an artist can sway people one way or the other about their music, even if it’s only subconsciously. We all “oooh” and “ahh” over all of the outrageous and semi-unattainable items our favorite artists wear throughout each new video they produce. In a new weekly feature, we will dissect some of our favorite music videos and try to get you the look for less. For our first Monday Music Fusion, we chose a woman who needs no explanation. The material girl herself, Madonna has recently been causing some buzz around her with the recent release of her newest album, “MDNA“. Although there has been some controversy as to whether or not Madonna is trying to promote the use of drugs with this new CD, the only drug we latch onto would be her catchy upbeat music. Specifically, the popular new single of the album “Give Me All Your Luvin‘”, which features both Nicki Minaj and MIA felt like the perfect introductory post. The fashion throughout this video is fabulous, we can’t help but lust over all of the looks. This week we find out some hot luxe for less pieces that we can give all our luvin’ to this season!
Madonna begins the music video in a scene fully equipped with a baby stroller and adorning men, rocking a sophisticated spy look that would have 007 drooling. A trench coat and a dark pair of shades are classic items that look great on any figure, keeping your figure looking sleek. Grab this Madonna look for less Forever 21 Classic Belted Trench Coat for only $33. The camel color matches the one Madge donned in the music video, and perfect for throwing in pops of color for a stand out look, like the model shows off below.
Although channeling more of a Marilyn Monroe inspired look, the use of lace has been prominent throughout Spring 2012 collections. For a no-fuss option, we love the casual yet sophisticated look of this NastyGal.com lace chiffon tank for only $38. Paired beautifully with any wash denim cutoffs for a playful yet simple summer look. For an extra sexed-up Madonna makeup tip, add a cat eye like Madge models in the video and a red lip for instant evening glam.
Online retailer Karmaloop.com has been known for stylish finds and and sells some of our most coveted designer looks. When trying to recreate Madonna’s fierce leopard and black ensemble, I couldn’t help but think of this fashion forward strapless dress that is perfectly broken up with a band of black. For those not as daring as Madonna to reveal parts of your undergarments in your everyday wardrobe, this sexy look is complete with subtle yet statement accessories such as the model’s choice of red heels and a rounded hat. For only 20.95, this dress is a steal and can be accessorized to look new and original in multiple ways for day or night.
