Madonna has called on a host of famous designers to create her MDNA tour wardrobe, and has even got Prada to make high heels for her male dancers.

Madonna has managed to secure herself a wardrobe brimming with one-off designer creations for her MDNA tour, which kicked off last night. Along with designs by the likes of Alexander Wang and Jeremy Scott, the Queen of Pop has revisited her iconic Jean Paul Gaultier conical bra look with a wire-like bustier created especially by the designer and worn over some masculine tailoring.

"We played with the ideas of a suit and a corset. But the corset is now like a cage," Gaultier told WWD. "What I have done this time is a nod to the conical bra corset of the Blond Ambition tour but reinterpreted in 3-D, 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."
Meanwhile, Prada have created high-heeled shoes for Madge's male back-up dancers, following along nicely from her recent introduction of 'mantyhose' in her Girls Gone Wild video.

Unfortunately, the gladiator-style Givenchy getup created by Riccardo Tisci for Madonna's epic Superbowl performance will not be making an appearance, nor will any other creations by the designer, owing to schedule conflicts. - Telegraph
