Herb Ritts and Thomas WhitesideIn 1987, Herb Ritts photographed Madonna in bed and undressed, save for the pair of minnie mouse ears affixed atop her head. Amused, she directs her gaze upwards, focusing further attention on the seemingly out-of-place Disney memorabilia.  For Elle Magazine’s May 2013 issue, Rita Ora covers the ”Women in Music Issue” issue, similarly topped with a pair of mouse ears, however, Ora’s Philip Treacy headpiece is more Deadmau5 than Minnie Mouse.
