RIP Cleavage: Since The Dawn Of Time – 2016

Whenever I think of Vogue, the first thing that comes to mind is Madonna. Even now, the black and white iconic video is running through my head. I’m not going to pretend I’m a continuous follower of Fashion, I don’t really care for Marc Jacobs’ opinion on what style of trouser shouldn’t be worn this season.
