Madonna dresses up as Beauty AND the Beast for fancy dress party

By Darren Mew

Madonna has proved once again she’s a versatile performer after dressing up as both Beauty and the Beast for a costume party this weekend.

The Queen of Pop showed off her fancy dress skills on Instagram as she donned a beastly Belle outfit for a party celebrating the Jewish holiday of Purim.

Donning the classic yellow princess dress, Madonna couple the girly look with a terrifying beast’s head to give her own chilling spin on the Disney classic ahead of the live action remake’s release this Friday (March 17).

Beauty and the Beast ! 💛🐗👩‍⚕️🎉🎉🎉😂

The singer, who recently adopted two twin sisters from Malawi, looked slightly more recognisable later in the evening after removing the animal head.

Sharing a picture of herself with artist JR, who was dressed up as the Pope, she wrote: “Sometimes you just have to take off the mask and confess!”

Sometimes you just have to take off the mask and confess! 💛🐗😇🎉😂🙏🏻 Thank you @jr
