What is appealing about Madonna in these photos?

I don’t understand what all the excitement is over Madonna in the new Dolce & Gabbana adverts! They are unrealistic and just plain strange. Never would anyone imagine Madonna as a housewife…never in a million years. She is anything but. Is she trying to soften her image? If she was going for a softer image I wouldn’t choose Dolce & Gabbana to run with. Maybe Ralph Lauren or Donna Karan would be a better fit. However, somehow I don’t think either of those designers would want Madonna as the face of a future campaign. Dolce & Gabbana have even gone as far as to launch a website dedicated to the new campaign! You can download highres images to cover your desktop right now, if you feel so inclined.

Granted, Steven Klein‘s photos are absolutely amazing and the clothing is truly inspired. We just can’t understand the Madonna love.
