Another Look At Madonna's Truth Or Dare Shoe Line!

madonne shoes lace

Yep, we're still head over heels in love with this!

As we mentioned earlier this week, Madonna is launching her very first collection of shoes under her Truth or Dare label this year.

With more than 60 styles coming our way, we couldn't help but take a look-see at the first eight pairs produced by Aldo Footwear. And needless to say, we are infatuated!

As stylist Arianne Phillips says, these are the best of both worlds:

"The line is really part of her DNA. She loves contradictions: Naughty and nice, sticky and sweet. [The collection] is always going to be a play between two different worlds."

Sounds perfect! Just what we L-U-V about our queen!

As far as price, the Truth or Dare kicks will range in price from $89 to $349 when they step into Nordstrom, Macy’s and Selfridges this fall.

Check 'em out in the gallery (below) and tell us which one is UR favorite!!

Iconix Brand Buys Some Expensive Peanuts

Filed under: Business Blitz

Good grief!

On Tuesday, E.W. Scripps Co announced it has sold the licensing rights of the Peanuts to Iconix Brand for an astounding $175 million.

Snoopy doesn't come cheap, does he?

In addition to their licensing purchase, Iconix will now own 20% of the Peanuts. And surprisingly, the Schulz family is happy about the new deal! Charles Schulz son explains:

"Peanuts now has the best of both worlds. Family ownership and the vision and resources of Iconix to perpetuate what my father created throughout the next century with all the goodwill his lovable characters bring."

With the new addition of the Peanut Iconix expects to make over $75 million a year off Charlie Brown and the gang.

Not bad considering the comic strip characters are over 50 years old!

Your First Look: Madonna For MDG Sunglasses

Dolce & Gabbana's favorite leading lady is back!

Madonna has teamed up with the Italian duo once again to not only star in another ad campaign, but to co-design 6 pair of sunglasses for the new MDG line.

This is D&G's first co-branded project ever and the first items to drop under the queen of pop's Iconix Brands collaboration.

The designers said Madonna was very involved with the entire process. After the two sketched over 50 different sunglasses, M then tweaked and changed until she was satisfied.

The new shades are expected to hit shelves in May just in time for summer and will retail between $248 to $289.

Steve Madden is trying desperately to get a piece of the Madonna pie at Macys.

It's being reported that the copycat king is working on a deal with Iconix Brand Group and the department store to create a line of shoes for Madge's junior line Material Girl.

Besides that, deets are scarce.

Previous celeb collaborations with Katy Perry and Diana Ross were quickly dismissed, wonder if this one will too???

Madonna Will Design For Macy's & Much More!

wenn5407036_e.jpg

When we first heard whispers that Madonna would be designing a line of clothing at Macy's we were skeptical, but it seems like it's going to happen.

Today it was announced the Queen of Pop and manager Guy Oseary will join together with Iconix Brands to form MG Icon, LLC. Under the name Madge will be churning out many fashion related projects.

Upon the announcement Madonna said "Joining forces with Iconix to bring my fashion ideas to consumers is very exciting for me."

The first project will be a junior's line called Material Girl. The younger line will include everything from apparel, footwear, handbags and accesories, with the possibility of expanding into beauty and fragrances.

Not surprisingly, Madonna's 13 year old daughter, Lourdes is the muse for the collection. Jeff Gennette, chief merchandising officer at Macy's explains: "Lourdes has an incredible sense of style and her point of view on fashion has definitely been an inspiration for the line".

Material Girl will be hitting 200 stores in August with the possibility of reaching 850 in the future. Price points for the line are actually very affordable, ranging from $12 to $40.

Aside from the Macy's line, MG Icon is expected to announce another collaboration with a designer label for a line of branded eyewear.

We can't wait to see what M and her team come up with!
