The singer stepped out in an ultra-glamorous starry silk gown by Stella McCartney with retro red lipstick. She accented her look with 1920s diamond and platinum Cartier jewels--including a priceless platinum brooch, circa 1903. She also added $65,000 diamond earrings and a $375,000 platinum, diamond and sapphire Panther bracelet from Cartier.

The singer’s manager confirms plans to begin recording next month.

Madonna is returning to the studio this summer to work on her next album, MTV reports.

Her longtime manager Guy Oseary wrote on Twitter to confirm the singer’s plans to begin recording next month.

“Madonna goes into the recording studio next month to begin work on new album ...,” he wrote.

Oseary revealed that Madonna “has a good idea of which producers she will be working with ... lots of questions about what kind of music it will be ... stay tuned.”

The announcement comes six months after Madonna teased that she may begin working on her next album. “It’s official!,” she wrote in December. “I need to move. I need to sweat. I need to make new music! Music I can dance to.”

Her last CD, Celebration, was a greatest hits album in 2009.
