The black and white images also highlight the superstar’s well-sculpted body. The Versace Spring/Summer 2015 campaign captures the unapologetic and timeless power of Madonna in New York. Styled by Jacob K, her hair was done by Garren and make-up by Lucia Pieroni.

This is the star’s fourth campaign with Versace as she had first modeled for the label in 1995, photographed by Steven Meisel followed by another campaign in the same year lensed by Mario Testino. In 2005, she was again captured by Testino as Vesace’s face.

Donatella Versace, the creative director of the Italian fashion house, is excited about her decision to rope in the 56 year old star as the face of the collection. She announced that, “Madonna is one of the true Versace icons. I’m thrilled to have not only a dear friend, but also today’s leading artist and icon, as the face of Versace.”

Madonna also makes a complementary statement, “It’s always exciting to wear Versace and experience the creativity and passion that Donatella has put into this collection.”
