She had ventured to the South of France to make an appearance at the annual Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation gala. 

And prior to performing at the star-studded affair on behalf of the actor’s environmental charity, Madonna took some time out to make the most of her vacation overseas. 

The singer, 58, was seen kicking back in the sunshine as she headed to the beach with a group of friends, attempting to go incognito in a dark ensemble that she paired with a straw fedora hat and tinted sunglasses.

Despite the undoubtedly desirable temperatures in the French Riviera town, Madonna was seen sporting a rather unusual ensemble for her outing by the sea. 

She appeared to flaunt her natural beauty by forgoing her make-up and stepping out fresh-faced while soaking up the sun rays. 

The star covered up in a long-sleeved black top that she paired with matching leggings and a leather belt that sat just off of her hips.

The Like A Prayer singer was seen clutching onto a pair of rainbow embroidered sliders in one hand, donning a straw fedora hat on top of her head. 

Wearing her blonde tresses down in a tousled style, Madonna hid behind a pair of tinted sunglasses as she joined her friends on the sand, including one shirtless male companion.

Appearing at ease and perfectly content as she indulged in a spot of R&R, the iconic performer seemed to command the attention of her pals.

And unable to resist the urge to entertain, at one point, Madonna was seen dancing in front of her friends as they topped up their tans. 

She appeared to go without taking a dip in the ocean, unlike her friends, and stuck to reclining on the sandy beach instead. 

The star was seen looking on as some of her friends sunbathed on the water’s edge – choosing to camp out in the shade instead.

The group, however, had appeared fixated with Madonna and were seen vying for her attention throughout the trip. 

She was seen animatedly chatting with a bevy of her bikini-clad pals, before putting on an affectionate display with one male companion as he nestled into her lap.
