Spiteri : ‘I Like Madonna’s Style’

Texas frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri is impressed by Madonna’s directness when she wants to get to know somebody, because she simply phones them.
The Ray Of Light superstar hates relying on celebrity parties to meet new pals – she prefers to invite stars she has admired from afar to an evening of fine cuisine and conversation, and Spiteri was on her list.
Spiteri recalls, “Madonna just rang up and said, ‘Do you want to come to dinner?’ and it was either a yes or a no and I said, ‘Yes.’
“That’s just an easier way for her to meet people she thinks she might want to meet because there is always such a fuss around her when she is in a public place.
“I enjoy her company, her conversation. She’s lovely.”

Liz Smith on Madonna’s new album

Who are the happiest music executives in the land these days? The big guys at Warner Records. All who have heard Madonna’s coming CD, “Confessions on a Dance Floor,” have been blown away. (Including WR’s movie-star handsome CEO Tom Whalley.) “Confessions” is entirely a dance-driven pop disc. No message. No ballads. All fun. These days M seems serene as the chatelaine of an English manor, feeding the chickens, riding, tending to her children, etc. (She, her home and her kids are gorgeous in Vogue for August.)
But the once-shocking icon can still get into the groove. And she wants her fans to know it. The album hits stores in November

Issa Story

Madonna might have climbed into John Galliano and Alexander McQueen dresses and Louis Vuitton suits to appear in the current issue of US Vogue, but there is one London-based designer who is really celebrating the article. “I dreamed of Madonna wearing my clothes ever since I was a little girl,” says Brazilian Daniella Issa Helayel, who designed the flying duck-printed blouse that Madge wore to be interviewed by Hamish Bowles. “Even before I became a designer, I always wanted to make clothes for Madonna.” With Issa dresses spreading like wild fire through A-list wardrobes (Keira Knightley, the Minogue sisters and Paris Hilton are all fans, Camilla Al Fayed is Daniella’s new muse and Sharon Stone has apparently acquired no less than eight dresses for her forthcoming Basic Instinct 2 publicity tour), Daniella has been working on a line of bags and shoes to accessorise them. And after piling the fashion crowd into Annabel’s last season, she’s planning one of London Fashion Week’s biggest dos at the hip new Dover Street venue, Automat, in September.
