Horst P. Horst, Madonna

Today, as I was traveling back home by bus, a Madonna video called Vogue (1990) struck my visual imagination. I had never seen it before, and I am not (that) acquainted with Madonna, but one of the last scenes reminded me absolutely of Horst P. Horst (Mainbocher Corset, 1939)

Of course, any other person had known it in advance: this Vogue video is a sort of homage to Horst P. Horst (who got upset because she gave him no credits), and many others.
