Givenchy to dress Madonna in haute couture
PARIS (AP) - French fashion house Givenchy says it is to dress Madonna for her upcoming "Sticky and Sweet" world tour.
Givenchy spokeswoman Caroline Deroche-Pasquier says venerated label Givenchy Couture has made the pop star two ensembles. In an e-mail Tuesday, she said one is to be worn during the show's opening number.
It's not immediately clear if other designers will also dress the star for the tour.
Madonna has a long history of working with French designers. Frenchman Jean-Paul Gaultier was behind the pointy cone bras that were the hallmarks of Madonna's 1990 "Blonde Ambition" tour.
Givenchy's design team is headed by an Italian, Riccardo Tisci. He is know for his gothic-influenced pieces and use of dark fabrics.
