And she's off! Madonna's "Sticky and Sweet" tour began Saturday night in Cardiff, Wales, and the Daily Mail reports the stadium was "far from full" (really?!) but Madge's routines were "nothing short of breathtaking." She underwent eight costume changes, playing a "pole-dancing, break-dancing cheerleader" and a "gypsy singer with a traveling band of minstrels." Her custom-made threads were designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, Miu Miu, Givenchy, Stella McCartney, Yves Saint Laurent, Moschino, and more.
She's been getting a lot of criticism for not being able to find a look for her current album, both on and off stage. We're not sure we'd call the "Sticky and Sweet" costumes cohesive (though they all exquisitely displayed Madonna's outrageous 50-year-old muscles), but they were characteristically surprising in that "is she really going to sit with her legs open while wearing that" kind of way. And what could be more fun on a Monday morning than taking a judgmental look at some of them? At left Madge rocks a progression of the leotard. The bra she's got on underneath is lacy in kind of a dowdy way, but we'd say her thighs are buff enough to offset that. And it's hard to see here, but she's wearing fishnets. We can't help but love that even if we hate it.
