SHE'S GOT THE BEAT

Opening the concert with her album’s title track, “Circus,” Spears descended from above in a red ringmaster-meets-dominatrix outfit designed by Canadian duo DSquared2. “We are enormous fans of Britney,” designers Dean and Dan Caten said in a press release, “and have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to collaborate with her.”

DON'T CAGE HER IN
The crowd rose to its feet as the singer – wearing a form-fitting bustier and lace-up boots – shimmied in a cage while being lowered from the rafters during the “Circus” opening number.

She’s got the power! Wielding an oversized carnival mallet, the singer worked the stage at the 19,000-seat New Orleans Arena in coquettish pink-and-black lingerie and a feather bolero.

During a Bollywood-inspired version of “Me Against the Music,” Spears showed off her toned form in a green-and-gold harem pants ensemble as she played off her backup dancers.

With jugglers, acrobats, clowns and even a magician who made Spears disappear onstage, the concert tour promises to be a spectacle, and the costumes, say DSquared2, are an autobiographical tribute “for one that has always been in the spotlight: scrutinized, watched, imitated, photographed, criticized and loved.”
