The Odile Gilbert-styled hair of the Alexis Mabille Spring/Summer 2014 Show, « Bomb Girl », which was an homage to Rosie the Riveter reimagined as an Alberto Vargas’ pin-up, drew inspiration from Madonna in Susan Seidelman’s « Desperately Seeking Susan ».

Other « Desperately Seeking Susan »-influenced collections : Le Silla Autumn/Winter 2012-2013, Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2010 (the large bows in the hair of this show referenced Madonna in « Desperately Seeking Susan »).
