Superstar Madonna left Italian fashion designers Dolce E Gabbana speechless when she asked them to fit her for a premiere.

The style gurus claim they are relaxed in front of most of their A-list clients, but found the Material Girl's superstardom intimidating.

Designer Stefano Gabbana explains: "She was the one singer who made me feel nervous. Me and Domenico (Dolce) - both of us. We love her, and we knew her from the beginning. I'd seen all her different faces, as a singer, movie star, mother, lover.

"She was the first pop star to ask us for something, and we loved her from a long time ago. People like that, they can make me anxious sometimes."
