Madonna kicked off her worldwide MDNA concert tour in Tel Aviv last night (May 31, 2012).
The iconic Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra was back, reimagined by the original designer for 2012. “We played with the ideas of a suit and a corset. But the corset is now like a cage,” Gaultier told Women’s Wear Daily. “What I have done this time is a nod to the conical bra corset of the Blond Ambition tour but reinterpreted in 3-D, in patent leather on the outside with metallic leather on the inside.”
Madonna wore the “cage” bra over a white button-down shirt, a black necktie and black pinstriped pants — a more grown-up take on her pink bustier with the pinstriped suit from 1990.
Madonna was then joined onstage by her 11-year-old son Rocco, who followed in his mother’s footsteps when it came to outfit changes.
The youngster wore an all black outfit with bright red braces as he danced with Madonna and then changed into a blue shiny vest and large headphones as he showed off his moves centre stage.
