Herb Ritts 1988

 

When I first saw it in the 89 calendar I think I was more shocked than thinking it was bad. It was so different after the WTG look. It's the only time I saw the pictures used at the time though and I prefer it to this shot from the same calendar. Just seem such an odd picture.

Personally, I think this is far worse - the Emo Phillips wig is shocking

and I've never liked this shoot - just don't like the hair

Thank you. I thought it was around 88 or 89.

The wig looks to wiggy.

and I've never liked that gelled up look. So pleased she grew it out for burning up.

I'll look past the rest in here since she's given us FACE to die for for nearly 40 years  

But that Out magazine cover is unforgivable. It'd make so satisfied to know someone was fired for that. I don't blame her one bit. I blame the twink intern who probably was a future Gaga fan. 

Probably a Kilo fan bitter about Confessions being far better than Light Years, Fever and Body Language all put together.

Herb Ritts 1988

 

:yowza::no: lol Oh my...never saw that! Um..pretty damn bad. lol. And this was taken by HERB RITTS?! Looks like  promo ads for a late 80s TV show spinoff of Growing Pains or some other bad 80s show that only lasted 1 season. lmao That, or a Madonna wannabe one hit wonder single cover from 1988 with a song that peaked at like #22 lol. Wow.

She looks cute and all, but it an alternate universe where TIFFANY became Queen of Pop and Madonna was a one hit wonder, this is how we would all remember that lil one hit singer from the 80s with the one word name!

Yes, lots of them were used in the 1989 calendar. Debi M was the stylist and Max Pinnell did the hair.

Yeah.  This just flat out proves that Madonna was never meant to be or should be the "Girl nextdoor." Lol

Herb Ritts 1988

 

Lolo,  I kind of love this because it is so daggy 80's and the opposite of how Madonna normally looked in the 80's. which was effortlessly beautiful, interesting and exciting.  She owned that decade and influenced everything fashion wise.  This was just a departure from her normally flawless look.  Was a decade of everything fashion wise.  I think Madonna here resembles a combination of Tiffany Amber Thiesson from Saved by the Bell and Dannii Minogue when she was in home and away and had long dark hair and wore midriff tops.  Not of course that Madonna was trying to look like them but just reminds me of them.  Both of them are major Madonna fans too.

I remember thinking the motorcycle shot was just not very Madonna. She wasn't a rock chick and it was such a cliche at the time with all the soft Rock around.

Mind you we dream of getting new shoots for calendars now!

I thought this was about the Versace 2005 phootshoot. Now that one was just bad, uninspired and aesthetically overall a mess. Starting with that damn wig!

I thought the same! :lol:

Also, I see nothing wrong with these photoshoots. I mean sure they're not exactly the most flattering or glamorous (referring mostly to the outtakes) but like someone else said at least she tries to do new things, new looks and concepts.

Now these are much better. Those twirling dress shots with the short dark hair are great.

1988 was a bit strange photographically speaking.

Not a big fan of the Scavullo portfolio for Harpers Bazaar either...

The Arthur Elgort shoot for Fame magazine is by far the best for that whole year IMHO...

Yes! The transition between 1987 Madonna and LAP Madonna was pretty noticeable in some of these photos...

Re the Harpers Bazaar shoot, i do love these, it's like a mix of '85, '87, and the about to arrive '89 Madonna!
