Madonna's "Sticky and Sweet Tour" just kicked off in Cardiff, Wales. Thanks to photography, those of us who were not lucky enough to attend still got a peek at one of the most important parts of a Madge gig: the outfits! Ever since her Madgesty embarked on her "Blonde Ambition" tour sporting designs (including that infamous cone bra) by French designer Jean Paul Gaultier, I've waited with bated breath to see who would be given the honor of designing her new dance togs. This year Madonna called on Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci. Tisci designed two outfits for the two-hour extravaganza, which also features designs by Stella McCartney, Tom Ford, and Miu Miu, to name a few.

If you've seen Madonna in concert then you know the woman loves to dress in layers -- that she can take off. By the end of each outfit she's often down to her skivvies reminding the world that she's still hot even at 50 years old! The "Sticky and Sweet" looks seem heavier on the black than what the Women's Wear Daily website previewed earlier this month, but the end result is still worth a thorough investigation. So let's have a look:
