Fit Tea is the podcast that spills all the tea on celebrity outfits, aka fits. In our first episode, Laia Garcia, a writer and editor at No Man’s Land, joins host Rachel Tashjian to discuss Madonna’s Ray of Light period in the late ’90s. From her Olivier Theyskens cloak in the video “Frozen” to her influence on designer blue jeans, we discuss Madonna’s transformation from a nouveau-Monroe in a cone bra to a yoga-loving new mother who practiced Kabbalah in a tank top.
