At the annual Met Gala party held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (USA) on May 2 with the theme Manys x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology (roughly translated: People and Machines: Fashion in the Age of Technology ), among the stars, Madonna remains loyal to her usual sexy style despite her age.
The female singer chose to wear a black outfit designed by Riccardo Tisci with the main lace material. Notably, sensitive areas of the body such as Madonna’s bust and butt are exposed almost 100%.
Fashion icon and actress Sarah Jessica Parker wasn’t the only one to ‘boo’ when it came to Madonna’s red carpet dress at the 2016 Met Gala . As soon as these images were brought to the public, there were many comments criticizing the female singer for being “overdone”, “excessive”, “terrible”, “ridiculous”… And fashion bloggers also commented. That outfit does not match the 2016 Met Gala theme .

Through social media, Madonna explained her outfit choice. Accordingly, she explained, the dress is not just a dress but also represents a serious statement of the ‘pop queen’.
Madonna wrote on her personal page: “We have fought and continue to fight for civil rights and gay rights around the world. But when it comes to women’s rights, we are still in the dark ages. My outfit at the Met Ball (Met Gala) was as much a political statement as it was a fashion statement.”
Accompanying the selfie on Instagram, the 57-year-old singer’s post also read: “In fact, people believe that women are not allowed to express their sexuality and not be adventurous after a certain age.” certain ages are proof that we still live in an ageist and sexist society. I have never thought in a limited way and I won’t.”

“We cannot change effectively unless we are willing to take risks by being brave and starting down that path,” Madonna said. That’s how we change history.”
“If you have a problem with me because of my clothes then it is simply a reflection of your bias. I’m not afraid to pave the way for the girls behind me. Like Nina Simone once said, the definition of freedom is freedom from fear. I’m not making excuses… Join the fight for gender equality with me!”, Madonna called.
Refuting the above viewpoint, netizens continue to attack the female singer on social networks. However, perhaps for a tough woman like Madonna, their opinions don’t have much impact.
