Givenchy to help dress Madonna for her world tour

The upscale French fashion house Givenchy will help dress Madonna for her upcoming 'Sticky & Sweet' world tour, a spokeswoman for the label said Tuesday.
Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci worked with the pop star to create two outfits, one of which Madonna is expected to wear during an opening number, Givenchy spokeswoman Caroline Deroche-Pasquier said.
The opening outfit is a frock coat in black stretch satin, she said. The other ensemble, to be worn in the third act of Madonna's, is a long cape worn over a black dress embellished with colored ribbons 'to give it a Gypsy look,' she said.
Deroche-Pasquier said other designers will also dress the star for the tour but declined to say who.
Madonna has a long history of working with French designers. Frenchman Jean-Paul Gaultier was behind the pointy cone bras that were the hallmarks of Madonna's 1990 'Blond Ambition' tour.
Her 'Sticky & Sweet' world tour kicks off in Cardiff, Wales, on Aug. 23 with stops across Europe, including Berlin, Rome, London and Paris, before going to North America.
Tisci, who hails from the Italian port city of Taranto, has been with Givenchy since 2005. Known for his Gothic-influenced pieces and use of sumptuous, dark fabrics, Tisci's latest collections have garnered rave reviews.
