Riccardo Tisci: Madonna Was so Beautiful… Like a Goddess!

Madonna impressed Riccardo Tisci so much his hands shook when he was measuring her.
The Givenchy designer created all the looks for her “Sticky & Sweet World Tour”.
They first met three years ago, and he was totally overcome, when he realised she wanted to work with him.
He told Grazia UK…

“She asked me to do the costumes for her ‘Sticky & Sweet Tour’.
We met in the middle of nowhere.
She was rehearsing in a basketball stadium somewhere outside of New York.
I watched the show, and she was so beautiful, like a goddess.
They she stepped off stage, came up to me and asked ‘Do you want to take my measurements?’.
So I’m taking her measurements, and my hands are shaking!”

“[For the Super Bowl], I did all the outfits – the clothes, gloves, belt, hat – even the underwear.
Oh yes! When she was dancing, you could see her underwear. So I made her an embroidered pair. I call it couture chic.
She also chose a cloak, which was gold and handmade over several weeks.
It was like a museum piece; the mix of palettes with the fabric, crystals and discs.
Even Madonna was like ‘Wow!’ – and it takes a lot to impress Madonna.”
