She has been teasing us with snippets of some of her looks, but on Wednesday she verbally revealed to Women’s Wear Daily that Jeremy Scott and Alexander Wang made the cut. She also will be collaborating with Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele. She revealed the full list of designers today, which also include Prada, Fausto Puglisi, Miu Miu, Swarovski, and the Lebanese designer Nicolas Jebran. Her longtime costume designer, Academy-Award nominated Arianne Philips, has been working closely with Madonna for the sixth tour she will be spending with the singer.  The tour opens in Montreal on September 9.
