Birthday Girl Madonna's 11 Greatest Music Video Beauty Looks Ever

Aug 16 2018 - 3:05pm

In honor of Madonna [1]'s 60th birthday today, please accept this list of her all-time greatest music video beauty looks as our official present to the Material Girl. From "Vogue" to "Hung Up," here are 11 times Madonna worked it in all possible ways.

"Holiday" (1983)

We want to know what setting spray Madonna [3] wore to keep her makeup intact for this dance-heavy performance of "Holiday," and we want to know it now.

"Boderline" (1983)

So. Many. Headbands. Each one is better than the next.

"Like a Virgin" (1983)

Madonna [4] is in peak 1980s form in this blockbuster music video that inexplicably costars a lion (just go with it). We love her faux pixie cut in the drawing room scenes — business in the front, party in the back.

"Material Girl" (1984)

Here, Madonna [5] pays tribute to another icon: Marilyn Monroe singing "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend." Her retro blond curls and coral lipstick are capital-T timeless.

"Into the Groove" (1984)

The first shot of the video to this single shows a Polaroid of Madge that is breezy Instagram cool way before Instagram was ever a thing. While this video is pretty much a montage of scenes from the film Desperately Seeking Susan, we're especially in love with the hair bandana she wears in the club scene.

"Like a Prayer" (1989)

In this moody video, Madonna [6] shows off her dark side as a brunette.

"Cherish" (1989)

Madonna [7] rode out the end of the '80s in a piecey pixie cut.

"Vogue" (1990)

There's a lot to look at in this fantastic David Fincher-directed video that takes heavy influence from drag culture. Two of those things are Madonna [8]'s long, arched eyebrows.

"Frozen" (1998)

Madge gives off major Angelina Jolie [9] vibes in this slow-jam video, as she wears a long, black wig in an intricate half-up.

"Ray of Light" (1998)

Madonna [10] told POPSUGAR that this is one of her favorite music video looks [11], and it's not hard to see why. "It's always nice to have bronzer from head to toe," she said. "I would never actually get as tan as I was in this video, but I look good in it." She sure does.

"Hung Up" (2005)

Are butt goals a thing? Because they totally are in this 1970s-themed video. If only our hair held this cute of a curl during barre class.
