The 'Material Girl' icon also shared a series of photos from the night out with her son, where she was pictured in an all-black look, with Adidas' signature three white stripes.
When Madonna's 16-year-old son David Banda arrived in a red and white-stripe dress—a collaboration between Adidas and Gucci launching on June 7—at the WBA World Lightweight Championship in New York City, fans reminisced about a fashion moment from years ago.
It didn't take them long to recollect that Madonna had popularized this look in 1993. Banda was paying a tribute to his mother who was pictured wearing a red and white-striped Adidas dress to the premiere of Sleepless in Seattle alongside Rosie O'Donnell.
"The archival original was part of an official collaboration between the sportswear brand and Laura Whitcomb of Label NYC and re-envisioned by Alessandro Michele within his Exquisite Gucci collection," the brand shared in the caption.
Though the Material Girl icon has been busy with her upcoming biopic, she took the night off and spent it with her son dressed in an all-black look, with Adidas' signature three white stripes. She too shared a series of photos from the night out.
"He's the one I have the most in common with," she told British Vogue in 2019 of the bond Banda and she shares. "I feel like he gets me; he has more of my DNA than any of my children so far."
Madonna, who has six children, shares Banda and older brother Rocco Ritchie with her ex-husband, Guy Ritchie. The couple adopted Banda in 2006, who was suffering from pneumonia and malaria at just 13 months old. His mother had died due to childbirth complications in his native Malawi.
The Grammy winner is also mother to Lourdes Leon, 25, who she shares with Carlos Leon and she adopted 16-year-old Mercy James and 9-year-old twins Stella and Estere from Malawi.
The road to motherhood wasn't an easy one for Madonna. After adopting Banda, she filed a petition to adopt Mercy James which was rejected by Malawi's court citing that as a recently divorced woman, she was not fit to raise children. She was also in the midst of her divorce from her second husband Guy Ritchie that went against her in court.
The process to adopt her daughter Mercy James was a long and tedious one, but Madonna never gave up, according to PEOPLE.
“I never gave up. And I never backed down. And I believe that if you want something badly enough in life, the universe will conspire to help you get it. It may not be exactly when you want it, it may not come exactly when you think it’s gonna come. It may not come in the package that you want it. But if you persevere, you will win,” said the Vogue singer.
Madonna stuck to her words, and even though the adoption battle took three and a half years, she never once faltered and was finally able to call Mercy her daughter. “I fought for Mercy, and I won. It wasn’t easy... So I’m here to say: never, ever give up on your dreams. Never stop fighting for what you believe in. And finally: Love conquers all," said the singer.
