Like Madonna, fashion has a dark side. Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, and Gareth Pugh are three dark-fashion lords off the top of my head. Side note — all of the aforementioned designers are British. Hmmm, must be something in the water, or Pimms Cup. . . . While Madonna is multifaceted, she has been praised and pooh-poohed for her dark tendencies. Watch, or shun, this video where Madonna and her posse of leather, pleather and vinyl aggressively dance against the starkest of all backgrounds. Oh, and feel free to vent about her cornrows because those are definitely open for debate.
