Madonna vue sans retouches faisant son âge.

EXCLUSIVE: MUM-OF-FOUR SEEN IN THE RAW
It's Madonna as you've never seen her before... looking every single one of her 51 years.
Images of the star - shot as part of her £7million deal with Louis Vuitton - appear to show for the first time her wrinkles, open pores, turkey neck and double chin.
They were later believed to be airbrushed to oblivion, with the mum-of-four looking much more familiar - and 20 years younger.
Madge goes to great lengths to keep the ageing process at bay with a punishing regime of exercise and a Kabbalah-friendly fat-free diet.
She might not be too happy that these photographs - controversially published on the website of New York-based fashion blogger bryanboy - have seen the light of day.
But the majority of women in their 50s who see them will probably breathe a massive sigh of relief.
Naturally she's still pretty fit, says columnist Sue Carroll.
Ok, I've got to be honest here. If I woke up in the morning, looked in the mirror and saw that face looking back at me I'd think: "Yeah, you're all right girl."
I'm no Madonna fan but, credit to her, she's 51 and deserves to feel good about the way she's fighting back the years.
Yes, the image is the unvarnished truth. There are open pores, wrinkles and, whisper it, the trace of a turkey neck.
But thanks to a lifetime on the treadmill and a macrobiotic diet she's svelte and fit.
If we're shocked it's because we're used to celebrities being so uber-airbrushed they've gone way beyond all reasonable recognition. It's such a terrible deceit we find anything less than flawless a shocking disappointment.
Older women should look at Madonna and feel hopeful. Their daughters might just take it as a lesson in looking after themselves.
How many of us, whatever our age, would dare show the world the face we woke up with? The truth is, we can't turn back time. No one can expect her to remain the rock chick she once was. What do people want? Even our pop icons age. Get over it. When was the last time you heard anyone being squeamish over Mick Jagger's wrinkles?

I think for a 50-something year old woman she looks great.
