Madonna kicks off Sticky & Sweet tour
Madonna kicked off her Sticky & Sweet tour this weekend at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.
The Queen of Pop may have reached 50, but showed no signs of slowing down, with the 45-date, two-hour show containing a total of eight outfit changes, a series of athletic dance routines, and all her greatest hits.
Taking to the stage on a giant throne, Madonna arrived in style, wearing knee-high boots and fishnets, and her first designer look of the night, a Givenchy bodice one-piece.
Next up, she jumped rope during the Old School section, which alluded to her roots in New York's 1980s urban dance music scene. Sporting knee-high socks, and an M-embellished hoodie, the singer seemed to have taken style tips from her 14-year-old daughter Lourdes, who has made the sporty style has signature look of late.
Givenchy was back for the third section, entitled Gypsy, where the singer wore a long cape embellished with coloured ribbons, over a black dress.
The decadent wardrobe features pieces from 36 designers, including Stella McCartney and Roberto Cavalli, and over £1 million worth of jewellery.
