Too bad the full picture wasn't used for the official album cover.

I brought that same topic up recently. Wanting that to be the album cover. Hoping an homage shows up in the album booklet at least. Madonna has to be aware of the famous painting given her love of art.

Oh cool, I am glad I am not alone in bringing up Sargent's portrait - checked it further, Steven Meisel apparently recreated that very portrait in 1999 with Nicole Kidman wearing Oscar de la Renta for a Vogue's June issue that same year:

Yeah, I like the full picture better than the crop they used for the cover. I felt that way about the LAP cover as well but that cover is considered iconic now, so what do I know.

It was a bold move on Madonna's part not to feature her face on an album cover.
