Yesterday, Kim brought you the news of Britney's sexy stage costumes for her Circus tour, designed by brother duo Dan and Dean Caten of DSquared2 and, as you can see from the sketches and pictures above, the show is now on the road.

Britney kicked off her world tour in New Orleans last night and word is (well, according to Perezzers), while she lip-synched her way throughout, it was actually a "non-stop, exhilarating assault on the eyes". And we can't help but think this visual extravaganza might have been helped along nicely by nipple tassels, knee-highs and tattooed body suits... You can see more of her stage looks here. And then tell us: What do you think of Brit's costumes?

See after the jump for sketches of her dancers' costumes.
