Designer Jean Paul Gaultier is set to launch his first official lingerie line in collaboration with Italy's La Perla, WWD reports. Gaultier is no stranger to undergarments, having famously created Madonna's cone bra and costumes for Kylie Minogue, but he's shockingly never had his own proper collection. The 27 styles, including corsets, bodysuits and bras, will hit stores in November. They will be priced between $600 and $1,200.
Celebrity fitness trainer Tracy Anderson may have lost her most high-profile client when she and Madonna parted ways last year, but the exercise maven doesn't seem to be sweating it.
Anderson, who is credited with helping Madonna to tone the bod she flaunted during her "Sticky and Sweet" tour, told the UK's Star, "Gone are the days I give myself to a celebrity. Madonna was my priority for three years but that's not why I set out to do this. Now I have a long list of people who I design [fitness programs] for, but my time is now spent on my company. I can't just be training a celebrity. I didn't do 11 years of research and development for that."
Anderson also claimed that tabloid reports of discord between her and the pop queen were completely false, insisting that she chose to stop working with the pop megastar to have more time for her family.

Single, lonely and miserable, she turns to her ex-hubby for comfort
Monday, 28 June 2010
The 51-year-old singer's imploring Guy, 41, to come away for a family weekend in August but sources say he's hesitant.
'Madge and Guy talk weekly about the kids,' an insider tells Now.
'But since she split with Jesus in February, she's been calling him more often and texting, too.
'She's asked him to come away on a family weekend forRocco's birthday in August and is desperately hoping he'll say yes.'
Although Guy's keen to celebrate with his son, sources close to the director say he doesn't want to get drawn back into a web from which he's only just broken free.
'It took him ages to get over Madonna,' adds the insider.
'He's enjoying the dating scene and is happy with Jacqui.
'His kids will always be his priority but he doesn't feel he has to do things with Madonna just to keep the kids happy.'
However, sources close to the singer say that she's adamant Guy should be there for Rocco.
'Madonna keeps saying how important it'll be to Rocco and that they should put aside their differences for the sake of the kids.
'She knows Rocco would love both his parents there but it's not an entirely selfless gesture - she hates being lonely and isn't used to being single, so she thinks a weekend with Guy will bolster her spirits.'
However, Guy's trying to back out without upsetting his son or his ex-wife.
'He texted Madonna to say he'd planned to take Rocco on a fishing weekend, just the two of them.
'Madge reckons that's a good idea but thinks he should do it another time.
'Guy's desperate for it not to turn into a row.
'He doesn't want to spend a weekend together as it'll be too stressful but Madge is a convincing woman and he's starting to weaken.
'He knows that if he doesn't go, he'll get the blame for ruining Rocco's birthday.'
