Bust outfit so far! Madonna, 62, shows off plunging neckline in mesh ensemble designed by longtime friend Jean Paul Gaultier
They have been friends since the late 1980s.
Still, it seems that French designer Jean Paul Gaultier still knows exactly how to please his old friend and frequent muse, Madonna.
On Friday, the Material Girl showcased one of Gaultier’s latest ensembles that accentuated her bust, as his designs were famous for the legendary singer in the past.
“Thanks JPG for the bright shirt!” Madge, 62, captioned the series of snaps, adding, ‘You always make a girl want to strike a pose !!’

Madonna, of course, referenced her hit Vogue in the caption, which she performed on her groundbreaking 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’ – a huge moment in popular culture history – after she 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 gauze! Madonna looked gorgeous in the Gaultier ensemble, and the singer said the French designer ‘always wants to make a girl Strike A Pose !!’
‘I was a big fan. She knew what she wanted: a pinstriped suit, the feminine corsetry. Madonna loves 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 Paris.
Despite not meeting until then, the pair were already mutual admirers of each other – as the singer had previously worn one of his creations at the 1985 American Music Awards.
