Madonna is Zaha Hadid’s style Icon
Here at MadonnaTribe we’ve always been very passionate about Zaha Hadid, the Pritzker Prize-winning architect who helped re-define the boundaries between architecture, art, fashion and design. We crossed paths with Zaha for professional reasons a few years ago and we’ve always been fascinated by how similar her iconic person was to the other big icon in our lives – the Queen of Pop herself.
To us, Madonna and Zaha were somehow two sides of a same coin and they could almost trade places if they happened to work in each other’s territory. For this – and a few more reasons – you can imagine how big the smile on our face was when we read this quote by Zaha on how to spend it – a website of wordly pleasure by the Financial Times.
My style icon is Madonna. She has always experimented with fashion: I attended the Met Gala two years ago when the theme was punk and, while many missed the mark, Madonna really got it. She popularised Jean Paul Gaultier’s bustiers and has never been afraid to try creative new things. The same can be said of Grace Jones – she is always pushing boundaries.
