Madonna Channels A Sexy Dominatrix On Cosmopolitan's 50th Anniversary Issue Cover

Strike a pose.

Talk about coming full circle!

After posing for Cosmopolitan back in May 1990, Madonna graces the cover of the magazine yet again, this time for its 50th anniversary issue.

In the cover photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth, the 56-year-old Queen of Pop goes back to her off-the-cuff fashion roots in an all-black getup. The "Rebel Heart" singer dons a goth-chic, sexy dominatrix look, clad in a black leather bustier, black masquerade mask, single leather glove, and blood-red lips. Black and silver accessories like a skull ring are additions to the cover model's rocker look. For added effect, she's seen chewing on pearls, because why not?

Regardless, this cover embodies Madonna's style and icon status to a tee. It is, however, quite the departure from her previous cover:

How times have changed.

In honour of its anniversary, the magazine also posted a behind-the-scenes pic of the milestone cover. Fifty years later, it's no wonder the crew is all smiles.
