The Marie Claire Italia April 2013 Issue is Madonna-Inspired

Taking a cue from Madonna's 'Material Girl' era, the Marie Claire Italia April 2013 issue channels the iconic 1980s pop sensation.

Model Barbara Palvin appears to be "living in a material world" with her icy blonde locks and edgy retro looks. She dons an array of different pieces by such fashion houses as Balenciaga, Jean Paul Gaultier and Ralph Lauren Blue Label. Styled by Elisabetta Massari, each look exudes a moody aura with the use of leather, fishnets and over-the-top layered accessories.

Photographer Jacques Olivar captures the outdoor setting with precision, creating eye-pleasing imagery that evokes mystery with the use of shades and fire motifs. The juxtaposition of pairing a pop culture reference with a moody setting makes this Marie Claire Italia April 2013 editorial piece inescapably captivating.
