Capital FM takes a close look at the singer's best style moments of all time.
A young Madonna sports a bright pink and white dress on stage in 1983, which came complete with hat, flower accessories and black statement glasses.
A fresh-faced Madonna, as she looked when she burst onto the music scene in 1984. The 'Give Me All Your Luvin'' star has gone on to become arguably the biggest pop star on the planet, with her fashion tastes as highly regarded as her music.
Madonna sports an innocent looking white dress on 'The Virgin Tour', which kicked off in 1985 in support of the singer's first two studio albums, 'Madonna' (1983) and 'Like a Virgin' (1984).
Madonna's fashion choices have always courted attention, especially during the 1980s, when the then young pop star enjoyed one of her most prolific decades.
Madonna's 1980s fashion choices have gone on to become major influences for today's pop stars. Her red carpet appearance at the American Music Awards in 1985 displayed her grungy attitude, which has since been adopted by Lady Gaga.
Madonna's fashion isn't just about her clothes, look at the hair! Here she is sporting a seriously blonde perform at the American Music Awards in 1987.
Madonna's 'Blond Ambition Tour' kicked off in 1990 and saw the star travel the world, playing 57 shows in 27 cities. It was immortilised in her documentary film, 'Truth Or Dare' (also known as 'In Bed With Madonna'). One of her outfits was this pink number, which reminds us of a more modern day contemporary - Gwen Stefani. The Pope called for a boycott of the show in Italy due to its overtly sexual nature and use of Catholic imagery.
Madonna performs at Wembley as part of her 'Blonde Ambition Tour'. The black goddess outfit came completed with some massive leather heals.
Same show, another outfit, as Madonna sports her infamous breast cones on stage at Wembley in London. The outfit is another fashion statement that is now perhaps more closely related to Lady Gaga.
Look familiar? Is it Lady Gaga? Is it Beyonce? No, it's Madonna performing at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1990 in a period outfit that wouldn't go a miss in her new movie, W.E.
Three years later and back on stage in 1993 as part of her 'The Girlie Show World Tour', Madonna unveiled another brand new hair cut. The short cropped blonde looks draw comparisons to Annie Lennox, lead singer of Eurythmics.
Madonna shows how to pull off the stylish look in her 'Take A Bow' video. Released as a single in December 1994, the track was taken from her 1994 studio album 'Bedtime Stories'.
The late 1990s saw Madonna take a brand new music direction with the release of the William Orbit-produced 'Ray Of Light', and with that came another eye-catching fashion phase. At the 41st Annual Grammy Awards, Madonna unveiled a new black hair cut, complete with David Bowie-inspired make-up and a startling slash-cut red outfit that wouldn't go amiss in Lady Gaga's wardrobe.
Madonna continues her gothic chic, circa 'Frozen' in 1998, accessorising this time with a cluster of bangles.
Madonna dances around a pole on stage in Moscow as part of her 'Confessions Tour' in 2006 - a dance move both Rihanna and Britney Spears have added to their recent concert tours.
Madonna arrives for the 61st Cannes Film Festival in 2008. While her on stage outfits have traditionally attracted controversy, Madonna's red carpet looks are often understated but always radiate elegance.
Madonna performs on stage at the first German concert of her 'Sticky and Sweet' tour at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. The singer turned circus ring leader for the massive world tour, which was in support of her 'Hard Candy' album.
Right up to date, Madonna shows off another elegant red carpet look at the premiere of her new movie, W.E. in January 2012.
