Madonna - 2009 MET Costume Gala

Madonna - 2009 MET Costume Gala

Madonna (in Louis Vuitton) dons an interesting hairpiece as she walks the red carpet at the “Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion” Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4).

Justin Timberlake, Kate Moss, Marc Jacobs and Anna Wintour will host the annual gala to raise money for the organization.

The 50-year-old’s legal team had a hearing with the Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal today in her bid to adopt a girl from the country.

  • Terri

    Too weird for me.

  • voice of reason

    Worst dress so far–what the heck is the head thing?

  • Gigi

    Those boots should only be worn with a g-string and nothing else! LOL

  • BMW


    heffa? uhmm u know what that means?

  • Shakirakitten

    My question is …Why?

  • JGP



    Somebody has a great sense of humor.

  • Cindy

    why being so mean, people?

    she looks absolutely flawless.

  • Gigi


    It’s her antennae to talk to Zenu!

  • Jess

    When did she become a caricature of herself? So sad and icky.

  • voice of reason

    @11 that was a funny reply

  • sweetness

    She is pure genius for knowing how to grab headline attention..without a doubt this outfit of hers will be in every entertainment section that reports on this event!

  • tina

    so hot

  • Helen

    Her face looks good and the dress is fine, not sure about the boots with the dress.

    The head piece needs to go-LV and Mac Jacobs- bad idea with that one.

  • fan

    LOL you people don’t understand fashion! The title of the Ball has explained itself well..the MODEL as the MUSE..!! SO..Madonna here, as well as Victoria, Anne Hathaway, Kate Moss and others come here tonight as the MODELS to be as MUSEs to designers..and here their designer is Marc Jacobs! And knowing Marc..when is he ever follow in the footsteps of everyone elses??

  • fashionista

    Interesting. She will be the talk of the watercooler in the morning. Very smart Madonna.

  • Matthew Rettenmund

    Madonna’s not Madonna if she’s not wearing weird shit—love it. The headgear is ugly, but the rest is really cool and a unique color for her. Her face looks good, she looks softer overall. The time off from touring is helpful!

  • Not fashion

    The only thing she is a muse for is a crackhead alcoholic schitzophrenic junkie “designer” that thinks he’s a blue witch living in an acua colored pumpkin from Malawi and needs Madonna to save him. He puts this little blue schmata on her head and shapes it like antennae to create a signal to the fashion gods to help him earn at least $10 for this ugly outfit so he can get his meds and one more hit to help him make it through the day.
    When Madonna shows up at his crack den, he gets scared. In his drug induced stupor, he is not convined it is actually her. The only thing that relieves him of this fear is the magic appearance of her finger cut off gloves from 1987. He puts the lace up high boots on her wrinkled feet and lighting is released from the antennae. A check for $10 is in his mailbox the next day.

    i want do her!

    #17, many of us here understand fashion the only difference is that unlike you, we actually have taste. Most people who are there are dressed to the nine and look like they belong, this woman looks stupid and out of place not and puleez about Marc Jacob’s even he has better sense than this.

    Madonna looks like a effin fool, she is so washed up and desperate for attention that she will come out looking like a clown just to get people to talk. Since buying Afrikan babies is on hold for a mintute, she has to generate talk some how. And BTW why the hell is this woman who is now a Jew wearing a cross around her neck, please someone explain ??

  • angierox

    Can someone remind this woman how old she is? shes still trying to dress like shes in her 20′s. Shes got an amazing body and looks fab for 50 but, enough is enough lady. She can still wear hot clothes and look stunning, for sure its not by wearing this… crap shes wearing

  • andamentothat

    I bet the background music is “cant get you out of my head.. na na”

  • Ethan

    Marie Antoinette and Peter Pan had a baby and then they named it Robin Hood Tinkerbell.

  • Cindy

    LOL @ #11

  • LILI

    love her

  • julia urbina


  • yuck

    She look stupid and ridiculous. Stop trying so hard!

  • thatsnotmyname

    @angierox: ugh! thank you! that’s what i’m saying! i don’t even think it’s the outfit that bugs me so much, cuz on somebody younger who can pull it off, it would be cool. i think it’s the fact that she refuses to dress for her age and as a result, she comes off looking like some heinous white trash cougar.

  • me

    My eyes hurt from looking at that.

  • Ro

    I’m almost embarassed for her.

  • Jill

    Was it a Halloween party or what?

  • Pattycake

    If you can’t be the most beautiful, go for the strangest, although I think she would say she is Avant-Garde. Madonna, who would have thought you’re next transformation would be as comedienne. I seriously think she is being serious here. Which makes it not so funny as pathetic. But I doubt she cares.

  • mickey

    The Wicked Witch of the World probably gets good television reception with her teal antenna. WOW! She is taking dreadful to a whole new level.

  • Justin

    Hell, Madonna can dress any way she likes…. She has always taken risks with fashion. And she still keeps herself looking fierce. Anyone who thinks a friggen number -50- is going to stop her, should look the other direction. Get over it. She isn’t going anywhere. She still clearly has more drive and vitality than 99% of people in the world. She is an inspiration for everyone to just get up, make the best of your life and yourself, and have a little fun. Damn.

  • Jonatan

    Madonna looks so HOT!

    In the last picture is so sexy, her face looks so young and the body is amazing, she’s THE QUEEN.

  • jorge

    She does look stupid

  • Jamie

    Big-butted toddler-looking ‘tard!

  • ney


  • STVE



  • Alicia

    Wow Madonna who cares who you are no one should dress like that! That thing on your head is hideous!

  • mertz

    is she serious. my goodness. is this because her and lourdes went to see lady gaga so she thought she would best her, or did she allow her children to dress her. ugh.

    yes we know thigh highs are in style, but she could have done without is…and she could have done better with this lv dress. gah. definate miss tonight. lol. not surprising though, so if it was for some sort of factor she doesn’t get the carrot. i hope she had fun getting dressed up for all the world to see though :P.

  • rally

    This is High Fashion people, its a look right out of the designers mind, unfiltered, she looks fierce, and she looks fierce because shes fit and the garments fit tight and right. That shot from behind is hot, she looks beautiful.

  • ella

    It’s a tie between her and rihanna for the worst dress

  • P

    madonna is the one.long live the queen!

  • Whisper

    I think she took the “costume” in “MET Costume Gala” too literally if you ask me…
