Great news, Madonna fans … it turns out that famed fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier is working with Madonna on her upcoming MDNA World Tour. At the launch of a Gaultier event yesterday, he was asked if he was designing the costumes for Maddy’s tour. Considering that he designed the costumes for 4 of her previous tours, it was a pretty good question. It is with great pleasure that I pass along the news that yes, Gaultier designed the costumes for the MDNA World Tour!
At the launch of Jean Paul Gaultier for Diet Coke in Paris, fashion editor Melanie Rickey had a chat with him. One of the topics was of course… Madonna! When asked if he was designing costumes for the forthcoming Madonna Tour, he responded in his lovable Franglais looking visibly surprised at my obviously inside information…
But ow do yoo knoaw?
Well, yes. Yes I am. You are verrry well informed! Mebbee you know as much as me!
This is really fantastic news. Gaultier is one of my favorite designers and his work with Madonna is legendary. He designed costumes for her Confessions Tour, her Re-Invention Tour, the Drowned World Tour and who can forget — the Blond Ambition Tour. I have no doubt that he has whipped up some great fashions for the MDNA Tour. Very, very exciting news!! I hope we get to see new sketches soon.
