Madonna's Material Girl Collection For Macy's Isn't As Bad As We Thought It'd Be

Perhaps we judged the sketches too harshly, because we're actually not too averse to the first looks fromMadonna's Material Girl line for Macy's. The collection looks like someone took all of Madonna's iconic phases—her Like a Virgin phase, her cowgirl phase, her Desperately Seeking Susan phase, her Blonde Ambition phase—and blended them together in a watered-down, made-for-the-masses re-dux. Says Madonna, "It's not complicated. It's dressing in layers. It's not looking like you took too much time thinking about what you're wearing." And it's true—if you don't think too much about it, the printed crop top, high-waisted pants, and&hell—even that weird paneled Western shirt are cute enough for your monthly wardrobe rotation. Prices for the apparel, footwear, bags, jewelry, and hair goods range from $12 to $40 and will be found at 200 nationwide Macy's on August 3. And while Taylor Momsen is the not-so-secret face to the line, Madonna's daughter Lourdes is blogging for it over on the Material Girl blog. (WWD)
