This belt was given to Jackie by King Hassan II of Morocco during his state visit to the White House on March 27, 1963. It’s made out of gold, decorated with diamonds, rubies, and emeralds. Although this was given to her in 1963, Jackie starting wearing this belt more often during the late 70s and 80s. The top left photo of Jackie and President Kennedy was taken the day after it was given to her.
Photographer Deborah Feingold sat down with the Boston Globe and talked about Madonna and the iconic pictures she took of her.
Deborah released her first-ever anthology, Music, which includes also her images of Madonna. “She peers into the camera as if she’s about to wink, already aware that she’ll soon be one of the most famous pop stars in the world,” writes the Boston Globe.
“I have no explanation for that,” Deborah Feingold says regarding how iconic the shoot was. “It was a 20-minute shoot in my apartment that was so tiny that all my furniture folded up against the wall, including the bed, table, and chairs. I was all set up.”
“She came with Liz Rosenberg, who remained her publicist. Her makeup was ready to go. I had a bowl of lollipops, Tootsie Rolls, and bubble gum. I probably didn’t get paid or have a budget; hence a bowl of lollipops and bubble gum. Everything was very simple. I shot four rolls of film, and for every frame she changed it up. It was like a dance, and I was a good follower. I had the skill, but she led. Twenty minutes later, she knew we had finished, and she left. She was a working girl, I was there to work, and that’s what you see.”
