Bust outfit yet! Madonna, 62, shows off cleavage in mesh ensemble designed by long-time friend Jean Paul Gaultier
They have been friends since the late eighties.
Yet it seems that French designer Jean Paul Gaultier still knows exactly how to please his long-time friend and frequent muse, Madonna.
On Friday, the Material Girl showed off one of Gaultier’s latest ensembles that accentuated her bust area, as his designs have been famously known to do in the past for the legendary singer.
‘Thanks JPG for the fierce shirt!’ Madge, 62, captioned the series of snaps, adding: ‘You always make a girl want to Strike A Pose!!’

Madonna was of course referencing her hit song Vogue in the caption, which she performed during her game-changing Blonde Ambition world tour in 1990.
It’s a fitting reference, as it was on that tour that Gaultier designed the singer’s iconic ‘cone bra’ – an unforgettable emblem in pop culture history – after she had personally hired him to do so.
‘When Madonna first called me in 1989, it was two days before my ready-to-wear show, and I thought my assistant was joking,’ Gaultier told the New York Times in 2001.
Hot Mesh! Madonna looked stunning in the Gaultier ensemble, and the singer said the French designer ‘always make(s) a girl want to Strike A Pose!!’
‘I was a big fan. She knew what she wanted – a pinstripe suit, the feminine corsetry. Madonna likes my clothes because they combine the masculine and the feminine.’
Legend has it that Gaultier met Madonna in 1987 after her concert at the Parc de Sceaux, just outside of Paris.
Despite having not met up until that point, the pair were already mutual admirers of one another – as the singer had previously worn one of his creations to the 1985 American Music Awards.

Gaultier, who is gay, has even previously confessed to having asked the Queen of Pop to marry him over the years, such his great love for the star.
‘I asked her three times if [she] wanted to marry me,’ Gaultier said in 2019, before adding: ‘She said no.’
In 2020, Madonna paid tribute to Gaultier, in a tribute after he retired from the runway after his 50th-anniversary haute couture show, held during Paris Fashion Week.

Madonna’s tribute began: ‘Jean-Paul. Whatever you do Next – It will Be Genius!! I Am So Grateful to have Collaborated with you on so many Incredible Fashion Adventures!’
She added: ‘There is NO ONE like you. And Never will Be! Your Heart, Your Talent, Your Humor. You are one of a Kind. I Wish You All the Best.’
While their 1990 collaboration is perhaps the most famous – they also worked together in 2005 Confessions Tour, where he designed Madonna’s lesser-known dominatrix equestrian get-up.
