Madonna is on the cover of the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and she’s beyond outspoken. Of course, that’s what we’ve come to expect—and respect—from the music and style icon: She’s not going to be anything but herself.
It's no surprise that in this latest newsstand issue, the 58-year-old was candid when it came to the industry, the double standards she believes exist for men and women, her personal life, and much more. This familiar attitude is reflected in the accompanying images, shot by Luigi & Iango, complete with a sultry, boudoir-inspired wardrobe that went heavy on the accessories. Think piled-on necklaces and stacks upon stacks of rings and bracelets. In other words, it's a look that you rarely see many sexagenarian women sporting, and instantly it gave us a case of déjà vu. After all, any long-term fans of the OG princess of pop might notice that Madonna's style circa 2017 is not a far cry from her signature aesthetic circa 1987.
>Below, we take a closer look at the similarities.
First, a peek at 1987 when Madonna sported the look that's synonymous with her career: a pointed-bra corset along with Skivvies and boots.
Thirty years later, Madonna might be paying homage to, well, herself in the pages of Harper's Bazaar.
Never one to shy away from a more-is-more approach, Madonna also layered on the sparkle and chains in this snap from 1987.
Not a whole lot has changed here.
