Madonna's new stage costumes were designed to help her "make history"

Givenchy Haute Couture designer Riccardo Tisci made the outfit Madonna wears in the opening act of the second leg of her 'Sticky and Sweet' world tour - which kicked off in London on Saturday (04.07.09) - and was determined to make her look as electrifying as possible.

He said: "The new costume is super couture, sensual, Goth, bondage.

"What I wanted for the opening was to give a very iconic view of Madonna. She's wearing an outfit that will make history. I wanted to do something even stronger than what he designed for her in the tour's first leg because she wants to be stronger."

The 'Fever in the Cabine' Christian Dior collection was inspired by shows put on in the 50s, and featured models in jackets and knickers, and skirts and bras.

Galliano was inspired by a picture of Dior backstage at a show surrounded by models hurriedly getting dressed.

He attempted to recreate the mayhem on stage, with the couture outfits available to order as sets.

In discreet tribute to Christian Dior, Dior Christal embodies the sophistication of watch-making that conceives each one of its timepieces like a Couture creation.

Almost as hard as a diamond, sapphire crystal is the very quintessence of Dior Christal. Never before has this material, traditionally reserved for watch glass, been used for decorative purposes. Since 2005, Dior Christal, with its sapphire crystal hand-cut and inserted in marquetry style on the bezel and bracelet, has invented a theatre of lights that brings enchantment back to watch-making once again.

What is Haute Couture?

What is Haute Couture?

Haute couture refers to the designing, creating, and selling exclusive custom-made, high fashion women's clothes.

The term "haute couture" comes from the French language. Haute means "high" or "elegant", Couture means "sewing" or "dressmaking".

A business must be a member of the Syndical Chamber for Haute Couture in Paris, which is regulated by the French Department of Industry, in order to be called a haute couture house.

Originally referred to French fashion and in France, now the term Haute Couture is also used loosely to describe all high-fashion custom-fitted clothing.
