Kim Kardashian West and Madonna have recently been spending a fair amount of time together – they hung out at Guy Oseary's Oscars after-party last Sunday, and earlier this week, took part in a panel to discuss their respective beauty businesses KKW Beauty and MDNA.
But the conversation didn't solely stick to all things beauty related. During their discussion, Kim revealed she has long since been a fan of the Queen of Pop's – since childhood – not least because the singer once moved in with her manager, who happened to live next door to the Kardashians.
As the song goes, good neighbours make good friends, and that's exactly what Madonna appears to have been. As revealed in the panel discussion – and again yesterday through Kim's most recent Instagram post – Madonna once gifted her and her sister Kourtney some jewellery.
As the reality TV star recalled: 'I remember so vividly her coming in one day in ripped jeans and a white t-shirt and these combat boots and she had dark short hair and this leather jacket and she just walked in and she was like, "You know what, girls? I’m over these bracelets." And she took off her bracelets and gave us these black rubber bracelets.'
Madonna quipped, 'I was so stupid, by the way. They don’t make those bracelets anymore!'
But that wasn't all the singer gave to the Kardashian sisters. She returned with a box full of neon jewellery – such as bracelets and earrings. As Kim wrote in her Instagram post, 'We went to school bragging hard but no one believed us!'
Kim also shared with fans how she and her best friend Allison Azoff once watched Madonna shoot her Cherish music video in Malibu on the beach, directed by Herb Ritts.
A star-struck Kim growing up to host panels with her childhood hero? That's Like A Prayer being answered, right?
With her hair in sleek '40s waves with a deep side parting and her make-up kept fresh and mimimal, Get Out star Allison Williams' Oscar look is a perfect example of old-fashioned Hollywood glamour re-imagined for 2018.
For your consideration: our latest beauty muse, Baby Driver star Eiza Gonzalez, whose Oscar look has us desperately needing to track down the exact tomatoey shade of red lipstick she's used for her first Academy Awards appearance. Extra points for the impeccably sculpted brows, too.
Zendaya manages to make a simple topknot look effortless (when let's face it, it's anything but); we also love her fresh twist on the smokey eye.
Jennifer Lawrence stuck to her tried and tested awards season formula: bold red lips and a bronzed smokey eye, with smudged out liner and beachy waves for a more laid-back look.
2017's Best Actress Emma Stone brings a similarly winning look to this year's red carpet, pairing sleek shoulder-length hair with pink tones on the eyelids and lips (perfectly complementing her bold sash).
Let's just take a moment to appreciate Black Panther star Danai Gurira's stunning red carpet look. And another one. And another one.
Gal Gadot once again proves why she's a real life Wonder Woman, with a classic red lip, timeless up-do and the sort of radiance that comes with being the highest grossing female superhero.
Newly crowned Chanel ambassador Margot Robbie doesn't exactly need to do much to stand out on the red carpet, which is probably why she's kept things commendably simple with her subtly waved bob and peach lipstick.
Kelly Marie Tran
No one is more excited to be at the Oscars than Star Wars breakout star Kelly Marie Tran. Top marks for the intricately plaited up-do (which wouldn't look out of place in the Star Wars universe, as it happens) and perfect brows.
