Madonna just signed a giant fashion deal that will enable her to have hands in multiple existing brands as well as start new ones. Along with her manager, Guy Oseary, she forms MG Icon with brand-management firm Iconix, which owns labels like Candie's and Rampage along with stakes in other labels, such as Ed Hardy.

"Lourdes has an incredible sense of style," he told WWD. No details on what the line will actually look like have been provided. But we're imagining something along the lines of a cross between Rampage, Ed Hardy, Topshop, and Madonna's signature bustiers:
