Madonna's Instagram: Secret Project
Events: Celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Girlie Show

Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition to be displayed in London

Madonna's conical bra is going on show at an exhibition on the work of fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier.
The singer donned the famous bra and corsets on her 1990 Blond Ambition World Tour.
They will feature in a major exhibition devoted to the French couturier at London's Barbican next year.
More than 140 cutting-edge couture and ready-to-wear garments spanning Gaultier's entire career will go on show.
Costumes designed for Kylie Minogue - such as the dress she donned in the Like A Drug music video - as well as creations made for Dita Von Teese and Bjork will also feature.
The Barbican described the show, The Fashion World Of Jean Paul Gaultier: From The Sidewalk To The Catwalk, as a 'dynamic installation', adding that Gaultier 'feels retrospectives are about dead people, but he is very much alive'.
Some of the outfits have been lent by Gaultier's collaborators but most of the garments come from his own personal collection.
The designer said: 'I am super excited that the show is coming to London...I always want to go to London, because London, for me, is a special place. In England I've got so many souvenirs and I've had so many experiences and I must say that the English were the first ones to come to my shows and appreciate my fashion.'
'If there is one place other than Paris that I should like to live in, it is London. I've got so many connections with London and feel at home there, even sometimes more than Paris.'

The show, which comes from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, opens in the UK in April 2014 as part of an international tour but will be adapted for the Barbican.

Agree with tracy - this will be mega and I am very excited! I went to the Kylie exhibition at the V&A and it was just amazing!


I love Gaultier's work with both Madonna & Kylie- it would be nice if this exhibit came to Oz, we are a 1st world country but we are so often overlooked!




The exhibit is now in Rotterdam! (The Netherlands)
