Madonna's Truth or Dare

Madonna in Dior
Celebrities are generally looked to as being trend setters or shining examples of what not to wear. Few have managed to land on both of these lists (sometimes simultaneously) than Madonna.

Her empire reaches far and wide, and she's now joining the long list of celebs who are calling themselves shoe designers. Madonna already has the successful Material Girl collection, but she's branching into adults accessories, fragrance, lingerie and shoes with Truth or Dare, which will again be available at Macy's

I will shamelessly admit I have already mentally committed to getting this collection, and I'm not sure they've even started designing yet.

Some have said that this jump makes no sense, but I beg to differ. Madonna's shoes and accessories have been making lists and magazines for years. The Chanel gun-heel shoes are only one such example. And as for lingerie, we all remember the famous Gaultier cone bras from the Blonde Ambition tour. (And if you don't, please Google it and don't point out my age is showing).

I can't wait to see what kind of stuff she comes up with for Truth or Dare, and I have no doubt it will be amazing. If Perez Hilton can design a charity shoe for Kim Kardashian's shoe club, and Stuart Weitzman can tap Scarlett Johansson and Olivia Palermo to design shoes, there's no reason Madonna can't take it to the next level (like she does everything) and design and sell shoes under her own label.

Previews of the shoes aren't available yet, but we can only hope something starts to leak out soon. I can only imagine what kind of amazingness Madonna will grace us with in this endeavor. She's even said she will be the face of Truth or Dare (saving us from another Taylor Momsen). But if she does want someone to help model shoes for her, or street test a few pair, I'm available.
