Madonna Style Transformations

No one has transformed herself like Madonna. The Michigan-born pop star has had about as many looks as she has records. Her ability to constantly reinvent herself and her music has helped to secure her status as an icon, and she has influenced a generation of copycats. (We’re looking at you, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus!)

When Madonna exploded onto the music scene in the ’80s with her bleached blonde hair, lace bras, fishnet stockings and crucifix jewelry, she gave fans and critics a taste of what was yet to come. The Material Girl has attributed her unapologetic style to losing her mother at an early age. “For example, mothers teach you manners. And I absolutely did not learn any of those rules and regulations,” she said.
