Kylie Minogue Releases Fashion Retrospective Book
Before Lady Gaga, Rihanna or Katy Perry married music with fashion, there was Kylie Minogue.
The singer compiled a look at her fashion choices, particularly her stage costumes, in a new book called "Kylie Fashion" (Running Press).
"It was lots of fun to look at my life in fashion through the years," said Minogue in a recent interview. "There’ve been ups and downs and fabulous moments and not so fabulous moments, but basically the book was a celebration of 25 years."
Yes, the 45-year-old even admits to some fashion faux pas.
"I had to include some moments that were less than stellar because we all make mistakes along the way. Some ideas that we thought were fantastic at that point in time were upon reflection, a big mistake," she said. "That’s all part of my journey and actually it’s what I like about fashion."
From skimpy outfits to showgirl costumes with plume headdresses, Minogue is game to try it all. For performances, she looks for showstoppers that will look good from the back of a large venue and hold up through 100 shows.
"I was about to say, ’things you can move in...’ wait a second, about half my costumes you can’t move in," she said with a laugh.
She learned that lesson the hard way decked out in headdresses, feathers and corsets on her Showgirl: The Greatest Hits Tour in 2005.
