Today we celebrate the birth of the woman who makes the music that makes the people come together.
Yes, Our Lady Madonna is 52 today, and she doesn't look a day over 52.
Besides her immaculate discography, her racy sex book and public affairs with Sean Penn, A-Rod, Dennis Rodman and Guy Ritchie, Madonna has also found the time to make a dent in the fashion industry, appearing in numerous ad campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Versace and the Gap, as well as creating a limited edition capsule collection with H&M.
Even though the bday gal is over half a century old, she is proving that she is still young at heart by joining forces with her 13 year old daughter Lourdes (check out her blog, it's adorable) to Madonnify middle-schoolers across the country with their junior clothing line label, Material Girl.
The new line (fronted by the face of Gossip Girl's Taylor Momsen) features bad girl apparel, footwear, handbags, jewelry and fingerless gloves for girls who don't want to hear their papas preach about costly clothes. Pieces retail from Macy's for $12 to $40. Just in time for Back to School.
p.s. Don't worry Moms, no pointy bras, bustiers or chaps here.
