Madonnas Estate in New magazine (VOGUE LIVING)

Vogue Living: Houses, Gardens, People





Vogue Living: Houses, Gardens, People: No surprise here, but Vogue editor Hamish Bowles' homage is largely centered around the fashion world. There are spreads on current and past homes of Oscar de la Renta, Donna Karan, Karl Lagerfeld and the late Gianni Versace. My favorite? A tour of Madonna and Guy Ritchie’s
English country manor. It’s the legendary Ashcombe estate of 1,000
acres of rolling hills and valleys. The late legendary portrait
photographer Cecil Beaton leased the place for 15 years in the 1930s and '40s. And leave it to Vogue
and Madonna to pay tribute to Beaton’s extravagant lifestyle by
temporarily dyeing some of the Ritchies’ sheep pastel pink, blue,
yellow and green just for their photo shoot.
