Double Costume mystery solved
Do you remember the black and white striped costume that Madonna wears on some publicity images for her re-Invention Tour?
The fans have been wondering what was the costume about, since she has been always wearing the very similar red and white costume in all of her live performances so far. Now the mystery’s solved with the interesting information coming from this Canada NewsWire release, with special thanks to MadonnaNation Forum member Hafo for bringing this to our readers’ attention.
Madonna – A Chanel Cabaret Girl
She’s off again – for her “Reinvention Tour”, Madonna, the uncontested queen of popand fashion icon always at the cutting edge of the trend, will be revealing her best assets.
This time the singer approached Chanel, and Karl Lagerfeld designed two fringed bodysuits in a music-hall singer style – one in black and white stripes, the other in red and black.
His comment was, “I love Madonna. She is a source of inspiration for us all – always ready to be transformed. Who could refuse to work with her?”
The items have been designed in a stretch fabric to accommodate the star’s body movements, embroidered with some 200 000 sequins, each one set in place individually using a hook! An amazing achievement that took more than 250 hours of work by the nimble fingers in the Haute Couture workshops.
In all, three copies of each of the two outfits have been made, to make allowance for the little accidents that are likely to occur in the course of a six-month tour.
