Madonna has hired a team of fashion experts to catalogue her famous costumes.

The pop superstar has kept every outfit from her career and now she wants them all displayed and conserved.

She says, "I've kept everything - the LIKE A VIRGIN dress, pieces that (JEAN-PAUL) GAULTIER made for the Blonde Ambition tour, all the costumes from all of my shows, all the dancers' costumes.

"My goal is a travelling exhibit, like the JACKIE KENNEDY show - not just costumes but video imagery and film and interviews and concert footage."

And Madonna has been careful to destroy any costume she doesn't want to keep: "We didn't want anything to end up on the internet."
