What makes women in men's hats with lots of leg look so sexy? I ask this after seeing Beauty Addict's article Madonna Madness: May 2008, on three magazines that feature Madonna on the cover of the May 2008 issues.
Madonna is the latest incarnation of this archetype:
Marlene Dietrich as Lola Lola in Der blaue Engel (1930; The Blue Angel)
Judy Garland in Summer Stock (1950)
Lisa Minelli in Cabaret (1972)
Keira Knightley for Coco Mademoiselle fragrance by Chanel (2007)
