Tradition says that on Purim the world is turned upside down, but perhaps Madonna dressing up as a tart is just a little too normal…
Madonna turned heads dressed as a sexy French maid at a fancy dress Kabbalah party.
The Hung Up singer was accompanied to the bash, held to celebrate the Jewish festival of Purim, by husband Guy Ritchie who was wearing a Native American outfit – complete with a long black wig.
Madonna and Guy arrived at the Los Angeles Kabbalah Centre smiling and appeared happy – dampening rumours their relationship is on the rocks.
Once inside, the couple enjoyed a traditional feast to honour the ancient story of Queen Esther’s victory against evil – with who Madonna shares her Hebrew name.
Luckily, the sexy star’s choice of outfit, which included a feather duster for tickling, didn’t offend anyone this year .
Twelve months ago Madonna caused outrage at a London Purim celebration after she went dressed as a nun, while Guy wore a priest outfit.
William Donahue, president of the American Catholic League, insisted the two stars should be beaten by a real life priest and nun for desecrating the sacred attire.
He fumed at the time: “They’re trying to tweak Catholicism again by
exploiting the Jewish holiday.
“She needs to be beaten with a ruler by a real-life nun and he needs to paddled on his behind by a real-life priest.”
