Madonna's stylist posts shell-shocked reaction after cape fall at The Brits

We wonder if Madonna took it so lightly...

We were all pretty gobsmacked at Madonna's tumble from the stage at The Brits this week, but none more so than her stylist, who posted a snap of herself covered in cupcakes after the accident.

B Akerlund who put Madonna's costume together, posted the snap with the caption "#currentmood #britawards"

Madonna took a tumble after her cape was tied too tight and she was yanked from the stairs by one of her backing dancers.


Although, Madge herself might not have found it quite as funny, as an insider told The Mirror: “Her team were left to pack up and ship out sharpish. Madonna’s team had been working on her cape since Monday.

“It was the only topic of conversation coming from the seamstresses as it had been impressed on them to make it perfect.

“When she fell, the room which has previously been the subject of so much chatter, fell silent," the insider continued. “The atmosphere wasn’t as if someone had died it was as if someone had been massacred.”

Madonna later tweeted:

"Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight! But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes!
I'm fine! #livingforlove."
