Madonna's Sheer Obsession

Last night Madonna was inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, in a ceremony held at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York.

The Material Girl shocked some - not those who have seen her Sex book - by wearing a transparent Chanel Spring 2008 dress with white sequin detailing and a black bow. She completed her ensemble with a pair of black leather knee-high boots and a bracelets.

This is not the first time this year we have seen Madonna in her pants. Last month at the press conference for the film Filth And Wisdom at the Berlin Film Festival, Madonna wore a similar sheer dress.

It is only a matter of time before she takes this look one step further.

As I mentioned in my runway round ups last year, transparency was featured in many shows. From the lighter, softer side at Prada and Giambattista Valli, to the more edgier, darker designs of Rodarte and Dolce & Gabbana.

You should not be surprised that trendsetters such as Tilda Swinton in Jil Sander, Nicole Kidman in Prada and Victoria Beckham in Marc Jacobs have already worn this trend.

It was hard to find many transparent styles on the web. But of course NET-A-PORTER.COM and TopShop.com are the well up on the trend.
