Madonna graces the cover of December issue of Harper’s Bazzar – and she looks absolutely stunning!
Madonna shot two December covers for Harper’s Bazaar – both very different but very beautiful!
A soft-faced and pretty Madonna is seen on Harper’s Bazaar’s December gift guide cover embracing the elegantly dress Andrea Riseborough — the star of Madonna’s directorial enture W.E.
The second cover for the traditional December issue shows a top-hatted Madonna posed vivaciously holding a camera, while Andrea looks on in the background.
In the interview, Madonna talks about W.E., a film about historial figure Wallis Simpson, saying that she was drawn to the subject because of how “polarizing of a figure the Duchess of Windsor remains.”
“The movie is all about the cult of celebrity,” she told Harpar’s Bazaar. “We like to put people on a pedestal, give them one character trait, and if they step outside of that shrine-like area that we blocked out for them, then we will punish them. Wallis Simpson became famous by default, by capturing the heart of the king, but it’s obviously a subject I’m on the inside of, and the outside of.”
Throughout the interview Madonna gives a clear representation of her sense of self, and how such womanly and powerful self-image as hers, as well as the film’s main character, is still something many people still struggle to accept even in today’s society.
“I think that it’s just that as a creative person, in all the different things that I’ve done or ways that I’ve found to express myself, I’ve consistently come up against resistance in certain areas I think that the world is not comfortable with female sexuality. It’s always coming from a male point of view, and a woman is being objectified by a man- and even women are comfortable with that. But when a woman does it, ironically, women are uncomfortable with it,” she states. “I think it a lot of it has to do with conditioning.”
We’re so inspired by Madge -just as we always have been! She looks absolutely stunning in her editorial photo shoot!
