    Ha! It really is time she let go of the leotard..

    Ayyyyyyy! The Manolo has caused a spontaneous eruption of tea from my nose.
    The wit and accurate observation of The manolo once again suceed!

  3. Dezert Diva Says:

    Yikes! She would look super fantastic if she would learn what to cover up and when. Sadly, that will likely never happen.

  4. Judith in Umbria Says:

    I was beginning to think I was the only one who noticed that this woman looks brutally ugly, if fit and skinny. I remember that Olga Korbut had that dried out and veiny lok immediately after finishing a difficult gymnastic routine. Madonna looks like that all the blurry time!
    Put your clothes on, Madonna! This is too terrible to expose!

  5. Jen Says:

    She’s starting to look like those old dudes in the Rolling Stones.

  6. Evie Says:

    Ah yes, the ever popular gymorexic aesthetic…

  7. La BellaDonna Says:

    Anorexia Athletica! Hunger, now served with Extra Pulled Ligaments!

  8. Molls Says:

    Jen, she sure is but Keith Richards looks the way he does because of sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll. I bet he had fun too. Madge? Not so much. More like a Norma Desmond kind of fun.

    Manolo’s observation Madonna doing the chicken dance is up there with his observation a while back of Lagerfeld jumping with a guitar!

  9. BarkingDogShoes Says:

    Someone send her a J. Jill catalog.

  10. Rondi Says:

    Jen — too funny and too right! And Molls, exactly! At least the Stones had fun developing the dessicated chicken look. There is something to be said for putting on a little weight (or at least being a little less sculpted) as one ages. I think Sarah Jessica Parker is in danger of going the way of Madonna, as well.

  11. Nancy Says:

    Yeah, but I’d sure like to know who her plastic surgeon is. That face she bought looks great.

  12. Frances Says:

    Madge should lighten up on the excessive exercise, she beginning to look like Chyna! But I do love the knee high lace up boots! Would The Manolo happen to know who made them?

  13. Anne Says:

    Where oh where is The Manolo for the chicken-chested forty-somethings??


    Anne – A Chicken-Chested Forty-Something

    PS and I don’t have a personal shopper, stylist, or the means to obtain one

  14. Holden Magroin Says:

    Oh Madge, you put the ‘sin’ in sinewy…!
