The Vogue [The Empress’ New Mix] mainly uses a recording of Madonna reading her part as ‘The Empress’ from The Emperor’s New Clothes, a re-telling of the classic children’s tale, as part of an all-star fund-raising project for the Starbright Foundation in 1998. Madonna‘s involvement with the project (and the accompanying illustration in the book) is obviously inspired by her most amazing performance of Vogue in the 1990 MTV Music Video Awards where she performed in a Marie Antoinette garb; still considered as an awards show bar-setting moment that many pop artists have since tried to emulate or surpass.
