FN Spy: Madonna’s Stylist Speaks Out

Madonna’s longtime stylist and collaborator Arianne Phillips hosted a one-day fashion exhibit called “Madonna’s Fashion Evolution” at Macy’s in the Westfield Century City Mall in Los Angeles on Thursday evening.

The exhibit showcased costumes from Madonna’s “Material Girl” era, which Phillips said was particularly powerful for her. “These are part of my youth and my story in terms of inspiration, before I even knew Madonna,” she said. “So it’s amazing to me as a costume designer and a stylist to be a part of this.”

Phillips, who helms the Truth or Dare line alongside Madge, said next she’s off to London to craft the costume design for an as-yet-untitled film by “Kick-Ass” director Matthew Vaughn.

While she was mum on the plot details and the actors involved, Phillips said the fashion would be the star. “It’s going to be super-stylish with a British flare,” she hinted.
