Those who have awaited Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour with bated breath can finally relax, as the pop prima donna has finally embarked on the epic excursion — and the costumes are to die for. Women's Wear Daily reports that the final designer lineup for Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour includes the likes of Alexander Wang, Alessandro Michele of Gucci, and Miuccia Prada. It seems that the cone bra may quickly fall into distant memory with the plethora of creative costumes to come on Madonna's sartorially optimized tour.
In honor of the tour's commencement, Women's Wear Daily offered readers a sneak peek at each designer's costume sketches, and to say that each design is more daring and outre than the last would be a gross understatement. Fausto Puglisi infused his sketch with signature theatrical sultriness, illustrating a sweeping, cloaked cape with thick embroidery and a majestic train. Prada meanwhile incorporated a heavy dose of James Dean's rebel-without-a-cause spirit with high-waisted black jeans and punk plaid shirts. On the other end of the spectrum resides Jeremy Scott's Moschino sketch, which is modern interpretation of '20s flapper garb that would not have appeared out of place on the set of Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby.
Alexander Wang meanwhile took an appropriately goth approach to the design with a sheer, mock neck dress rendered in an inky hue, and Miu Miu placed the focus firmly on footwear with studded platform trainers and rebellious motorcycle boots.
The latest tour has prompted Madonna fans and comrades alike to consider the widespread impact the chanteuse's career has created on the modern zeitgeist. Producer Patrick Leonard, a former partner of Madonna's, aptly remarked in an interview with Huffington Post that Madonna's initial tours perhaps sparked more direct sartorial influence, stating, "I think there were more people dressing like her on the first tour because the identification from people to her was simpler and more direct. The fans were specific fans at a specific age. It was young girls."
However, based on the aesthetic evidence provided by the latest Rebel Heart designs, those channeling Madonna's style may range from five years old to fifty.
