There's nothing that will make you feel more shiny and new than Madonna's "Like a Virgin" song—a hit single that debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart 30 years ago today.
Since that hallmark moment, Madonna has rocked headlines, not only for the song's underlying message of sexual independence, but also for her sartorial choices in the accompanying music video (which included a gondola and a tiger) and her memorable MTV VMA performance. And what did she wear? A wedding dress (how's that for juxtaposition).
But it was her on-stage version that has remained an iconic look in pop culture history. That "Like a Virgin" performance at the 1984 MTV VMAs takes the cake as one of the most iconic acts ever. Literally. The singer made an entrance atop a larger-than-life wedding cake, clad in a sexy bustier wedding dress, complete with a "Boy Toy" belt buckle and layers of necklaces to boot. So in honor of the 30th anniversary of "Like a Virgin," we shopped out her notorious bridal look, from head to toe.
