Glossed and Found

Oct 24, 2016 >> Want to make the Iconic Madonna Bra? [VIDEO]


Last minute costume needed? We’re bringing you another episode of our Totally ‘80s Glossed and Found Halloween with an easy DIY dedicated to our one and only Lucky Star. Madonna’s most beloved accessory, without a doubt, is the Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra. We asked designer Nicole Marét of THE ORDER to help us get into the groove recreating Madge’s iconic-shaped lingerie. Pull on some fingerless gloves and dot on that beauty mark as we unveil our inner material girls at Nicole’s studio.

This no-sew project only requires only a handful of items from your local craft store. Make sure to pick up adhesive paper, hot glue and ribbons of your choice—black tooth paint optional. Follow along in the video for a step-by-step in creating Madonna’s cone bra and maybe even learn a move or two.



Jean Paul Gaultier first unveiled the cone bra on the runway in the early ‘80s, and Madonna debuted this look in 1990 as part of her Blond Ambition tour. The innerwear-as-outerwear style of the decade not only created a showstopping look for the Queen of Pop, but embodied her counterculture point of view. Lingerie-inspired looks have been popping up all over the runway the past few seasons from Giambattista Valli to Dior, so maybe Madonna’s sharp silhouette is timeless after all.

With likes to Madonna’s boundary-pushing spirit, Nicole’s line THE ORDER weaves a dark and powerful story of femininity into sheer jet black garments and silky mesh lingerie pieces. With a resume that includes Agent Provocateur, Nicole’s moody yet sanguine designs are are bound to leave you feeling sexy and confident, or dare we say like a virgin? Let your underthangs show and impress your friends with this classic Madonna look and vogue the Halloween night away.
