Madonna defended the all-black ensemble she wore to the 2016 Met Gala, which some people thought was too revealing.
Her Givenchy ensemble included a black bodysuit that revealed her chest and backside worn underneath a lace overlay. She also wore leather thigh-high boots, a bejeweled headband, and layered necklaces.
After the event, Madonna addressed some of the criticism she saw on social media surrounding her outfit, and described her look as a “political statement.”
“We have fought and continue to fight for civil rights and gay rights around the world,” she wrote on Instagram. “When it comes to Women’s rights we are still in the dark ages. My dress at the Met Ball was a political statement as well as a fashion statement.”
“The fact that people actually believe a woman is not allowed to express her sexuality and be adventurous past a certain age is proof that we still live in an age-ist and sexist society,” she continued. “I have never thought in a limited way and I’m not going to start.”
She concluded the post by saying: “If you have a problem with the way I dress it is simply a reflection of your prejudice. I’m not afraid to pave the way for all the girls behind me‼️ As Nina Simone once said, the definition of freedom is being fearless. I remain Unapologetic and a Rebel ❤️ in this life and all the others. Join my fight for Gender. Equality! 🙏🏻”
