Madonna

Icons of the Century

Her polished, stylish videos of dance-influenced, catchy pop propelled Madonna — who understood the importance of fashion in the video age and how to marry musical trends into million-selling records — into instant icon status.

She had 17 consecutive top 10 hits starting in 1984, and millions of fans worldwide adopted her looks: street-savvy (“Borderline”), the Marilyn blonde (“Material Girl”), Hollywood’s Golden Age siren (“Vogue”).

She understood the power of sex in a country with deep Puritanical roots — a Mae West on steriods, donning Gaultier’s exaggerated cone bra, publishing “Sex,” playing the dominatrix, burning crosses, becoming a mother and adopting ancient mystical beliefs.
