Madonna made a surprise appearance at the 2023 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles tonight. The Queen of Pop appeared onstage at the Crypto.com arena to introduce Sam Smith and Kim Petras, who later hit the stage to perform their hit single, “Unholy.”
Madonna gave her sharp style a towering boost for the annual ceremony. The “Material Girl” singer donned a black button-down blazer that featured a structured collar, corseted bodice and side slant pockets. Underneath, the award-winning entertainer wore a white button-down shirt, tie and long black pleated maxi skirt.
Madonna styled her in two braided ponytails that were pinned up. She let two strands of her braids frame her face. For glam, the “Frozen on Fire” artist went with a soft smokey eye and neutral matte pout.
Taking things up a notch, Madonna elevated her ensemble with Vivienne Westwood’s Super Elevated Lace-Up Platforms in purple. The silhouette had a chunky outsole, and strappy accents on the instep and sat on a stacked 7-inch block heel.
The platform shoe trend is one of the easiest styles to incorporate into any wardrobe. Post-pandemic, platform shoes have emerged as one of the most popular footwear styles. The dramatic heel easily adds flair to any outfit.
