London:  Pop diva Madonna is set to launch a shoe range this autumn with Aldo.The 53-year-old, who started young fashion line Material Girl with her daughter Lourdes in 2010, is now branching out into footwear with a range of dance-inspired shoes, a website reported.

"Her fingers are really on this brand. The first thing I did was remind her of all the shoes she wore over the years, and we took the styles that we can't live without.

"You can always depend on her to bring her style and provocateur quality, but she also has a very feminine perspective," said Arianne Phillips, Madonna's long-time stylist.

The range, which is aimed at women aged 27 to 50, will eventually be expanded to include fragrances, clothes, accessories and lingerie.
