Madonna’s Met Ball Dress Had a Special Meaning

In the 1991 documentary Truth or Dare, Madonna dedicated a concert to her longtime friend Keith Haring, who died of AIDS the year before. Tonight - on what would have been his 57th birthday - the queen of pop culture remembered the visionary artist again.

'Part of why she was wearing our graffiti dress was to honor Keith,' said Jeremy Scott, the Moschino creative director who collaborated with the superstar for the Met Gala. 'We custom-made her gown to say Rebel Heart - and it’s definitely fitting to wear it while celebrating him.'

Happy Birthday, Mr. Haring. You sure inspired a winner (and changed the world, too).
