Madonna appears to have forgotten about her pedicure despite her groomed exterior while launching her new fragrance Truth or Dare in New York yesterday.
Madonna, 53, suffered a bout of temporary amnesia when it came to nurturing her feet, confidently strutting onto the red, or rather black, carpet wearing a see-through chiffon skirt and peep toe heels.
She may have tried to deflect attention from her lower half by showcasing her svelte figure in the sheer black lace dress – but the large toe on her left foot stood out as it appeared to be painted gold while the others were simply decorated with a clear nail varnish.
Though her upper body was clad in a bodysuit, her legs were visible underneath the flimsy skirt with her bare ankles poking out the bottom.
Madonna completed the seductive ensemble with a heavy cross pendant.
Though it is now 22 years after her documentary, Truth or Dare, was filmed in 1990, Madonna debuted her fragrance of the same name at Big Apple department store Macy’s.
Daughter Lourdes threw her support behind her mother with an appearance at the launch.
Fragrance specialists Coty Inc. signed an agreement with Madonna’s MG Icon company to launch her perfume.
Coty already have several celebrity endorsed fragrances on their books, including David and Victoria Beckham, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Moss, Beyoncé and Kylie Minogue.
Madonna’s fragrance is aimed at women aged 25 to 45, with the 35-45 group as primary aim.
Speaking about the fragrance, Madonna told Women’s Wear Daily: “I have always been obsessed by fragrance…
“For years wanted to create something personal that was an expression of me, but that other people could relate to as well.
“Something classical and timeless and yet modern. My oldest memory of my mother is her perfume. I carry it with me everywhere.
“She always smelled like gardenias and tuberose, an intoxicating mixture [that was] feminine and mysterious.
“I wanted to recreate this scent, but with something fresh and new about it as well.
“Something honest and yet daring – hence the name Truth or Dare.”
According to reports, Madonna was deeply involved in the process of making her perfume.
She worked with Stephen Nilsen, a perfumer at Swiss fragrance company Givaudan, to create a “composition of white flowers on an intensive gourmand background”.
The scent is described as both light and dark, opening with notes of gardenia, creamy tuberose and neroli.
While at its heart there is jasmine, benzoin and white lily, based on vanilla absolute, caramelized amber and sensual musk.
The fragrance comes in two sizes – as 50 and 75 ml Eau de Parfum – along with body lotion and shower gel.
Perhaps her scent will sell as well as her recent album did.
Madonna scored the biggest selling debut album of 2012 in America when it was released last week.
MDNA sold an impressive 359,000 units, making it her eighth album to top the Billboard 200 albums chart.
Madonna is set to embark on her US tour this summer.
