Magazine sales are down but this will help sell a few copies. Freshly divorced and looking more glamorous than ever, Madonna proves to us she can and will always stir a little controversy.
This sexy spread was shot in a hotel room in Rio de Janeiro by famed photographer Steven Klein. The sexy 46 page spread titled 'Blame it On Rio' will be featured in March 09's W Magazine. The model featured with Madonna is already rumoured to be dating her, he is Brazilian model Jesus Luz, 22. They reportedly met on this shoot in December. Apparently, Madonna become so captivated when she first met Luz she invited him to join her on the remainder of her South American dates for her super successful Sticky and Sweet tour.
The pictures speak for themselves as you can see the sexual passion between them. Their chemistry definitely translates to the photographs.
The photos show Madonna looking seductive and beautiful in a few different dresses, she is even wearing a couple dresses designed by Victoria Beckham. Also seen in a vintage Dior wool suit, and looking gorgeous in a vintage silk gown. Madonna's lace gloves seem to be a trend through most of the editorial and a visible cross around her neck. Madonna seems to always flirt with themes of religion, as some may agree she is styled looking like a naughty woman of the church. The dress with the white trim around the neck and sleeves is almost nun like.
Luz is barely clothed in most of the photos, one image Luz is standing pool side while only covering himself with a towel as Madonna is spying on him, in another he is wearing black briefs laying on a bed as Madonna seems to be locking their hotel door. They share a passionate kiss in the hotel room and make this editorial a must look for everyone.
Madonna was just seen last week having dinner with Jesus in New York City, accompanied by two of her children, Lourdes and youngest son David. Sources say Guy doesn't think highly of Jesus since he is convinced this is a casual fling and is not thrilled this is happening so soon after the divorce, and has reservations since Jesus has met the kids so quickly.
Jesus probably won't be complaining of his new status since being linked to Madonna. He has reportedly dropped his modelling agency, 40 Graus Models, and recently signed with the more prestigious Ford Models. Supposedly he has raised his rates as well, he used to be paid $225 for a photo shoot, now he is asking for $100,000.
Madonna was last rumoured to be with Alex Rodriguez who is in the midst of his own controversy at the moment, admitting to steroid use, but it seems she has moved on quite well, to a much younger man. It seems Madonna is doing very well since her divorce. Looking good truly is the best revenge.
