Video: Madonna's 'Living for Love' Grammys performance
Madonna's Instagram: 'Holding on to MY Grammy's!'

Riccardo Tisci and B. Akerlund on Madonna’s Outfits spoke to Riccardo Tisci and B.Akerlund about the two outfits designed for Madonna's red carpet and performance at the Grammy Awards:

During a mostly dull Grammy awards, Madonna provided a ray of high-fashion light. We have designer Riccardo Tisci and stylist B. Akerlund to thank. Tisci collaborated with Akerlund and Madonna on two custom Givenchy Haute Couture looks - a pastel and black corset dress for the red carpet and a crimson leotard, jacket, and cape for the stage - that brought something extra to the ceremony in a way only Madonna can.

'Madonna is a real life friend and working with her is always effortless, like collaborating with family,' Tisci explained. 'We created a Matador inspired set of Haute Couture pieces to match her theme of 'Living for Love.' I loved the idea of her as this Givenchy warrior in full Couture embroidery and color blocking.' Tisci’s creations took 50 people 2500 hours of hand-beading the couture tradition, according to Akerlund, but it was worth it. 'M is famous for knowing how to take a risk in multiple fields at the same time, and as usual, we all saw how it pays off,' Tisci said of the performance.
