Gwen Stefani Gets Playful on ELLE UK Cover

Gwen Stefani looks stunning on the October cover of ELLE UK, dressed in a blue Peter Pilotto top and a floral multi-colored skirt by McQ Alexander McQueen.

Behind-the-Scenes Look at Madonna's 'MDNA' Tour Costumes

Madonna's longtime stylist Arianne Phillips has already wowed us with top-notch custom costumes on Madge's "MDNA" tour, with looks by Jeremy Scott, Alexander Wang and Jean Paul Gaultier. "Designing for Madonna and specifically the 'MDNA' tour requires a definite 'wow' factor, as this tour is bigger and better than ever," Phillips said in a statement.

One element that is present in all of Madonna's costumes is the sparkle: Her "MDNA" tour wardrobe has more than 315,000 Swarovski Crystal embellishments. "Thousands of crystals contribute to glamorous and shimmering costumes worn by Madonna, her band and dancers," added the pop star's stylist.
