Madonna News for June 2010
“Material Girl” is a newly created fast-fashion junior’s collection that will launch exclusively in 200 Macy’s stores and online at www.macys.com on August 3, 2010 for the back-to-school season.
“Material Girl” will be sold exclusively at Macy’s.
The “Material Girl” collection was inspired and designed in collaboration with Madonna and her daughter Lola, along with Iconix Brand Group’s in-house fashion department.
The “Material Girl” collection consists of the following categories: apparel, footwear, handbags and jewelry.
The collection will retail from $12.00 to $40.00.
The “Material Girl” is a spontaneous and fearless individual who invents her own fashion trends and is never afraid to make a bold, creative statement. She is influenced by her eclectic taste in music, dance and Hollywood.
This season, Fall 2010, the “Material Girl” is all about prints and embellishments in the newest silhouettes. She mixes hard and soft elements, like a tutu dress and studded combat boots, or an oversized boyfriend sweatshirt with a floral print mini skirt. It’s all about self-expression and playing with layering.
“Material Girl” this fall is never about just one piece but how you wear it all together to make a unique outfit. Piling on the layers allows you to create to a look that is different from what anyone else would wear.

Antonio Banderas has laughed off Madonna’s two-year crush on him.
The Queen of Pop made the revelation in her 1991 documentary film, In Bed With Madonna, after meeting the Spanish actor – but the feelings were not reciprocated.
“Yeah, she says these things – she didn’t repeat it to me; it could have been dangerous, depending on how I would have been that day!” he said.
He insisted: “Nothing happened – never ever.”
Antonio – who later starred in Evita with Madonna – is still surprised that he made headlines for catching her eye.
“I know! That’s quite impressive to me. When I first met Madonna, she was a star on her Blonde Ambition tour and I was a working actor who paid to see her,” he recalled.
“We worked together in Evita and she was absolutely committed to her character. Even now, I still find it weird.”
The dad-of-one, who reprises his voice talents for Puss in Boots in Shrek Forever After, still keeps in touch with her.
“I saw her at the Oscars. She invited us to go to her house for a party – you should have seen Robert De Niro, Mick Jagger and me all doing the conga!”

The Material Girl isn’t quite ready to cede her spot in pop music’s hierarchy to Lady Gaga or Britney Spears just yet. The 52-year-old singer had the fourth highest-grossing tour of 2009, bringing in $6 million a night and $138 million overall. An episode of the Fox hit sitcom Glee, which featured cast members singing several of her songs, added to her already high profile and cushioned her significant earnings from publishing royalties.
