Madonna's upcoming Reinvention tour will offer fans songs from the star's extensive back catalogue - and a series of eye-popping costume changes.

The MATERIAL GIRL will wear designs by CHRISTIAN LACROIX, CHANEL, pal Stella Mccartney and her stylist ARIANNE PHILLIPS on the upcoming road show.

The outfits will include a champagne-coloured opening ensemble; a military rock 'n' roll set-up; a "cool, classic" outfit; a European carnival number; and a final traditional outfit which Madonna subverts by wearing it in a radical way.

Phillips adds, ''Madonna goes back and revisits older songs and reinvents them, so we used that same philosophy and theme with her costumes.

"Madonna has always pooh-poohed the concept of reinvention and doesn't strategize or premeditate her new look in a boardroom, so this is the greatest ironic statement of all.''
