Madonna, 63, shows off her VERY smooth visage and sports braided hair in LA


Madonna showed off her line-free visage and new blonde braided hair as she enjoyed a night at a Burberry party at the Chateau Marmont in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.

The singer, 63, donned a braided hairstyle, despite previously being accused of cultural appropriation, and showcased her ample cleavage in a cut-out black satin  gown, adorned with glittering chains.

She was joined at the bash by a mystery man who was seen with the singer for a second time this week, and chivalrously ran round the side of their car to open the door for her.   

The Material Girl hitmaker has been dating backup dancer Ahlamalik Williams, 27, since 2018.

Madonna added a pop of colour to her radiant face with a swipe of berry lipstick and sported oversize shades. 

The music icon slipped on a tailored black jacket, fishnet tights and a pair of black platform ankle boots.

She also sported navy blue fingerless gloves and a vibrant manicure.    

Madonna’s choice of braided hairstyle was a bold one, considering she previously received a backlash for her style of hair.

In November, the Material Girl hitmaker shared an Instagram snap with her hair in braids, with fans claiming it was a ‘microaggression’ and accusing her cultural appropriation – when members of a majority group adopt cultural elements of a minority group.  

The singer also sparked a backlash when she modelled a burqa for an Instagram post in 2014 that she captioned: ‘Its that kind of day! #unapologeticb****’.

Last week Madonna looked very smooth-faced as she enjoyed a night out with her famous pals.

The singer took to Instagram to share snaps of herself with the likes of fashion designer Stella McCartney, 50, actress Liv Tyler, 44, and social media star and comedian Lilly Singh, 33.

In one snap, Madonna could be seen cosying up to Stella as she kissed her on the cheek while Madonna gave the camera a sultry look.

In another photo, the Queen of Pop wore a black coat as she sat alongside Stella and their friend, talent agent Maha Dakhil Jackson.

The group was joined by Madonna’s son David Banda, 16, who wore a black jumper over a white shirt.

They looked relaxed as they sat alongside each other while enjoying a drink and some food. 

Madonna captioned her post: ‘Night out with my besties.’

The performer’s youthful looks were called into question earlier this year when her social media followers said she looked like a teenager.

She made the most of Instagram’s filters as she shared a series of snaps enjoying a glass of wine and a vape.

Alongside the post, she wrote: ‘Tryin to Make a Movie…………….It’s Really Hard!’ and also shared a photo of the camera she was using. 

But fans were less concerned about the star’s upcoming project and more focused on her youthful looking appearance in the heavily filtered images.

One user commented: ‘She looks about 16,’ while another said the hitmaker had a ‘baby face’.
