PARIS (AP) - Emerging French couturier Alexandre Vauthier says he will follow in the illustrious footsteps of Karl Lagerfeld, Emanuel Ungaro and Roberto Cavalli and design costumes for the celebrated Crazy Horse cabaret’s latest revue.

The getups are made from a special latex and include embroidery by the famed house of Lesage. Vauthier said in a statement Thursday that celebrity shoemaker Christian Louboutin is providing the pumps.

The costumes are for the “Take My Love” number, which debuts next month at the Cannes Film Festival.

Founded in 1951 on the Paris’ glitzy Georges V Avenue, the Crazy Horse features topless dancers in matching bobbed wigs performing cabaret numbers with a retro feel. It’s a Paris institution and top tourist attraction.
