Madonna's conical bra designed by Jean Paul Gaultier is to get another public outing in the UK.

The famous outfit, worn by Madonna at Wembley on her Blonde Ambition World Tour in 1990, is the star of an exhibition coming to the Barbican in London never year - The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier.

Celebrating the work of the French designer, the exhibition is travelling round the world to fashion hot spots including San Fransisco and Madrid, as well as London. It has already had rave reviews, showcasing a huge variety of works by the designer.

It will contain around 30 pieces of couture made for Madonna, 54, who has worked closely with JPG for more than 20 years.

And amidst the 140 classic works will be outfits and pieces designed for Kylie Minogue and Dita Von Teese.

Speaking about the London leg of the exhibition tour, Jean Paul said: "I am super excited that the show is coming to London ... I always want to go to London, because London, for me, is a special place.

"In England I've got so many souvenirs and I've had so many experiences and I must say that the English were the first ones to come to my shows and appreciate my fashion."

He added: "If there is one place other than Paris that I should like to live in, it is London. I've got so many connections with London and feel at home there, even sometimes more than Paris."

The tag line of the exhibition - from sidewalk to catwalk - seems fitting for fashion's 'enfant terrible' as he's been dubbed since his first catwalk show in 1976.

The show will begin at the Barbican in April 1014.
