Madonna & the art of retouch: why is she wearing hand gloves again?

Madonna has started wearing gloves again, an example of body dysmorphobia or another marketing trick?

Earlier this week the Daily Mirror revealed: Madonna hates the appearance of her hands and says they are too ‘old ladyShe’s managed to work wonders with her face over the past few years thanks to Dr. Frederic Brandt, but hands have always been the big age giveaway,” a source told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper.
The 51 year-old is reportedly said to be being treated by Dr Fredric Brandt in an effort to give her hands a more youthful appearance.

 The pop star has recently been seen wearing hand gloves on two separate occasions and is said to have kept her hands in her pockets at a charity event. Has she started developing body dysmorphobia?

Hard to say because the aging of her hands has been noticed in the media since 2007. Madonna is known for spending about a half million pounds every year to look younger, and earlier this year a report was published on the ‘retouch’ of her hands. But likewise reports had occured in the media which clearly illustrate that just like Michael Jackson … Madonna is not able to turn back time.

But maybe there is another reason why Madonna has started wearing gloves. For, she’s not the only one: her daughter Lourdes has started wearing ‘gloves without fingers’ as well.

Actually, as a matter of fact, Lourdes has recently made her first steps in becoming a fashion queen! Not only will the singer’s daughter get her own designs out in stores this August with the Material Girl Collection – including a hand glove (!),  but she’s also turning fashion blogger to promote it.

So what do you think? Is Madonna wearing gloves because she simply likes them to wear – possibly because she is suffering on a body dysmorphic disorder? Or … has Madonna started wearing gloves again as a marketing trick – for promoting her daughter’s efforts?
