You expect to see a large number of extravagant and mesmerising costumes at Rio De Janeiro's famous carnival. After all, it's a cultural celebration that has been called by many one of the greatest shows on Earth.

That's quite a title, so it's no wonder many of the World's rich and famous head over to Brazil to enjoy the sights and sounds. In attendance this year was none other than Madonna, the Queen of Pop herself. Sporting a colourful t-shirt and an extravagant black eye-mask she watched the samba dancing and other events with boyfriend Jesus and daughter Lourdes. The Sun reported that Madge had a great time dressing up for the Rio carnival!

Here's a thought if you're looking for an outfit: why not dress up as Madonna for your musical fancy dress party?

Her style is instantly recognisable, and perfect for larger-than-life partygoers who just want to have the best time possible.
