This is not news but it’s certainly interesting, 30 years later. Madonna‘s stylist in the beginning was her pal, Maripol. Best known for styling the Like a Virgin albums in the mid-1980s with trademark black rubber bracelets, jewellery and crucifixes the french-born, single-named Maripol started to become as iconic as Madonna herself in those early years. She is also a photographer who has exhibited her photos in art galleries all over the world. In the early 1980s, Maripol worked for the chic Italian boutique Fiorucci (which is when we first met…) And as they say, the rest is herstory. (Today is Madonna’s birthday, btw.)
This interview with Madonna & Maripol is from the July 30, 1985 episode of the TV show Evening Magazine.
