Madonna in Louis Vuitton for Gucci Party

Earlier this week I considered posting a picture of the dress to celebrate Green Week, until I learned that there are about 20 different Green Weeks going on a year.

But turns out I have occasion to feature the dress this week anyway, since Madonna has been receiving some press for her appearance at Gucci's Tattoo Heart Collection launching party, held last night at New York City’s Plaza Hotel. The British press is less than thrilled with what they believe is a fashion faux-pas, but at least some Madonna fans applaud her brave choice.

"The news came hours after Madge was spotted at a Unicef bash in New York wearing a bizarre grass-like outfit." --Mirror.co.uk

"Her latest style salvo, in an Louis Vuitton dress by Marc Jacobs, which looks as if someone poured a wheelbarrow of lawn clippings all over her, is just another horrific hiccup in the wardrobe of a woman of wealth, but no taste." --Telegraph.co.uk

"Her style, however, divided opinions, with some arguing that her green-feathered dress was more akin to Astroturf, while others commended the star for her brave fashion choice." --Madonnasuperstarqueen.blogspot.com

Does this mean that Madonna is indeed, as rumored, the new campaign face for Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2009?
