Kylie Minogue In Dolce & Gabbana – X Factor Italy

It’s hard to believe that Kylie Minogue is really 45 years old.

Last night, the actress/singer made a guest appearance on the Italian version of ‘X Factor’.

She performed tracks from her new ‘Abbey Road’ album during the live show, which was filmed at the famous Teatro della Luna in Milan, Italy.

Wearing a tiny Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 bejewelled one-piece, the star showed off her perfect pins but the look covered up her famous derriere.

Opting for more dazzle – and height – she styled the look with Christian Louboutin spiked ankle boots.

Taking us back in time, the Aussie star sported a super-curly bouffant à la Charlene Robinson in Neighbours.

    Not my favorite look – probably just the hair not working for me.

    Have you seen her XFactor UK performance outfit from this weekend? Looks sensational – would love to know where that gold dress comes from.

    I had the opposite reaction to you, FC – I think this outfit makes her look very much like a 45 year old. A beautiful 45 year old who is in great shape, of course. But I think this sort of outfit highlights and celebrates her age rather than disguises it

    Kylie – you said it yourself – NO JUST NO

    Not liking the look as a whole and especially not liking the hair style.

    For a performance piece, its ok. Nothing I haven’t seen before though.

    It’s not hard for me to believe it. Fail. Particularly disappointing after the fab Julien MacDonald looks.

    I can give it a pass as a performance piece but not on Kylie, she is not rocking it, maybe on someone younger and hotter.

    I don’t like the hairstyle and that piece is OK for a performance look. We’ve seen very bad performance looks (Cheryl Cole for example), so this isn’t that bad.

    I find this type of look very tacky and OTT, regardless of whether it’s worn for a performance.

    Am curious where else one might wear this if not on stage … but i LOVE it. Even digging the hair. There’s always a sense of humour in her on-stage style.

    Sorry but I think her legs are completely shapeless especially from the knees down. Kylie-please put it away.

  12. Nat December 7, 2012 at 16:31 #

    She looks great, but I’ve got to say this felt slightly OTT. However, she was were sweet with the contestants of the show.

    It’s really hard to believe she’s 45, you’re totally right, FC. She looks very beautiful, but she always does, most of all in DG.

    just realised this is from the SS12 collection.

    Tacky as usual.

    Stage outfits do NOT have to be tacky!!!

    • Linda December 7, 2012 at 16:57 #

      I know. I’m so bored with the same tacky, sparkly bustier type stage outfits. You seen one, you seen ’em all. I guess short of going in bra and thong (which some female performer probably has) or naked, there’s not much more they can do to push the old envelope these days.

  16. Rebecca Z December 7, 2012 at 16:10 #

    You are so right–she looks fabulous! Fitness and good genetic material.

  17. robbie December 7, 2012 at 16:10 #


    wtf is she doing lately her style has taken a frickin nose dive, and that hair. this is a look i would expect on rupauls drag race.

  18. katie December 7, 2012 at 16:05 #

    Aw Kylie looks fab, and so event appropriate for glitzy sexy Roma i love it!

    • Julyol1972 December 7, 2012 at 18:26 #

      I totally disagree. I think she looks tacky and this outfit should be for someone younger (hate to seem ageist – I not) and more up-and-coming. On a related note, how come Kylie gets a pass to wear this but if someone like Rihanna had worn this same outfit on stage, she would most certainly be trashed as looking skanky etc?
