Just released! Madonna’s latest video of Ghosttown is a pop ballad placed in a (post apocalyptic) setting where the survivors only hope is their ability to hold on to love. Madonna looks stunning in A.F. VANDEVORST‘s emerald green silk satin gown throughout the entire video, providing the only splash of color among the grays and maroons of a city laying in ruins.
The “Dingo” dress is a sleeveless suit dress featuring a long train hails from Belgian design duo An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx’s Pina Bausch and Joseph Beuys inspired FW 2012 collection.
The “Dingo” dress is named after Joseph Beuys’ coyote from the 1974 performance piece in which the artist spent 3 days sharing a room with the wild animal, a testament to human and animal behavior as well as time, almost mirroring Ghosttown’s narrative.
