Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Featured among the myriad costumes Madonna will be donning throughout her MDNA World Tour is a masculine-inspired look by Jean Paul Gaultier featuring a corset-style top.
For the Material Girl’s ninth world tour, the iconic French designer drew upon the now-legendary costumes he had created for the pop star in the past.
“We played with the ideas of a suit and a corset. But the corset is now like a cage,” Jean Paul Gaultier said in a statement.
“What I have done this time is a nod to the conical bra corset of the Blond Ambition tour but reinterpreted in 3D, in patent leather on the outside with metallic leather on the inside. It’s all about masculine and feminine, Madonna and Jean Paul Gaultier classics reinterpreted for 2012.”
Madonna will also be wearing costumes by Dolce & Gabbana, Jeremy Scott and Alexander Wang.
The MDNA world tour kicks off Thursday in Tel Aviv.
