It is speculated that the screenplay could be about Madonna herself as she is seen in the video describing her iconic Jean-Paul Gaultier ‘Blonde Ambition’ satin cone-bra look from her 1990 tour. “The garters were over the suit bottoms, right?” Cody asks. “Yeah,” Madonna says. “Straight pin-striped pants sit beneath the corset; it’s cut high-waisted on the leg, the garters come down here, cone bra zipped up the front and then the double-breasted suit coat goes over it.”
