An Open Letter to Madonna's Golden Grill

Posted on

Remo Casilli/Landov

Dear Madonna‘s Grill,

When you first came into our lives on Instagram two months ago, we didn’t hate you (even though Madge instructed us to do just that with the caption “Dont hate me. Hate my #grilz”).

Her lashes and bright pink lip were just so fiercely on point in that photo, we hardly even noticed your golden glare all over her top teeth.

But then she took you out for another spin in Rome on Wednesday with your friends the fingerless leather biker gloves and black peek-a-boo lace bra shirt and we’re sorry, we just could not get into the groove.

So listen up, Madonna’s grill. We want you to leave our 55-year-old Queen of Pop alone and go hang around with pop stars who don’t remind us of Amy Poehler’s “cool mom” character in Mean Girls when they wear you.

No one does reinvention better than Madonna and while we’ll always appreciate her dedication to experimenting with her style, we think we can all agree that blinging out the mouths of Rihanna, Beyoncé and Miley Cyrus is much more your scene.

Your friends,

The People Style Editors

Tell us: is Madonna’s grill still in vogue or should she put it back in its case, never to see the light of day again?
