Pointing out that Madonna is a style icon is like pointing out that the sky is blue. Still, on this 25th anniversary of Madge’s big movie break, Desperately Seeking Susan (check out a great interview with director Susan Seidelman here), we’re struck by how influential the Material Girl’s wardrobe in that single film has been — and still is. After the jump, we compare the signature looks of 10 current celebrity fashionistas to outfits from Susan and conclude that it may actually be impossible to come up with a fashion statement Madonna hasn’t already made.
You know how crazy people are obsessed with the idea that Lady Gaga is in league with the Illuminati? (The main piece of evidence is apparently that she’s always doing this “all-seeing eye” business that you see above.) Well, that imagery, like much of her schtick, may originate with Madonna and this crazy pyramid jacket. All conspiracy theories aside, we’re guessing Gaga would kill for this piece.
