Crazy Horse: ”Madonna” photographed by Steven Klein
“As any equestrian worth her jodhpurs can tell you, the relationship between a woman and her horse transcends the boundaries of sport” – writes Style.com in their new feature that premieres the first images from the Madonna/Steven Klein cover story for “W Magazine“.
“There’s often lovesick devotion involved (witness the bedroom walls of many twelve-year-old girls, where photos of Arabians crowd out the boy-band posters) and at times even a touch of the erotic (Lady Godiva, anyone?).”
“When the woman in question is Madonna, one can expect the dynamic to get even more complicated. All of this was made clear when the 47-year-old, an avid horsewoman, took to a Hollywood sound stage with six stallions and photographer Steven Klein. It had been seven months since the riding accident that left her with multiple fractures, but the resulting 58-page portfolio – the pop icon’s second collaboration with Klein for W – demonstrates that her passion for the species remains unchecked. Unafraid, leather-clad and in the best shape of her life, the material girl, whose Confessions tour kicks off in Los Angeles on May 21, was ready to take the reins.
