Madonna strikes a pose
13:30 06 July 2006
The first pictures of Madonna modelling for fashion giants H+M have been released.
The 47-year-old singer is seen posing in a figure-hugging white tracksuit in the advertising shots.
Madonna worked with designers at the Swedish clothing chain to design the tracksuit, which she will while on the road for her current 'Confessions' world tour.
The two-piece outfit will be available to buy in H+M stores later this summer and comes in three colours, black, white and purple.
Margareta van den Bosch, head of design at the company, said: "We are pleased to be able to offer this tracksuit to our customers by mid-August."
Despite splashing out hundreds of thousands of pounds on her own clothes and lavish stage outfits, Madonna's tracksuit will cost just 29.90 euros for the top and 19.90 euros for the pants.
The top and bottoms are expected to retail in the UK for £29.99 and £19.99 respectively.
H+M also used Madonna's entire 150-strong tour crew for the advertising campaign, and several shots feature her staff, including dancers, make-up artists and back-up singers, posing in the clothing.
As part of Madonna's lucrative contract with the fashion house, the company agreed to provide a complete wardrobe for the 'Hung Up' singer and her "touring family" to wear on the road.
