A Weekend In Kylie Minogue’s Closet

A Weekend In Kylie Minogue's Closet

Kylie Minogue was in New York City this weekend attending several events which saw her wearing her favourite designers – Dolce & Gabbana and Moschino Cheap & Chic.

Dolce & Gabbana 5th Avenue Boutique Opening: On Saturday evening she joined Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana to celebrate the opening of the new Dolce & Gabbana boutique on 5th Avenue with a cocktail reception hosted by Giovanna Battaglia, where she enjoyed a night of traditional Italian hospitality and mingled around the space of the new store, which spans three floors. Wearing a green-and-white mini dress from the Spring 2013 collection, the Australian star styled her look with orange woven heels and statement earrings from the same Spring 2013 collection. I like all three elements, but I don’t think they complement each other well here.

NYC Hotel: The next morning Kylie left her hotel looking in great spirits, wearing a Moschino Cheap & Chic dress. Her fun pink scoop-neck dress featuring a winking eye and pink lips was styled with tri-strap peep-toes and superstar shades.

Pre-Met Ball ‘The Great Gatsby’ Screening: On Sunday evening it was Dolce & Gabbana once again; this time she donned a floral ensemble – a print we have seen in several guises on the red carpet which celebs can’t get enough of. The actress/singer, who is usually fond of mini dresses, surprised me by wearing pants on this occasion with a bell-sleeved top.

Of the three looks, I have to say her Moschino look is my favourite. I do really like the second Dolce look, but the Moschino is more suited to her style.

Kylie Minogue In Paco Rabanne – 2013 MTV Movie Awards

Kylie Minogue In Paco Rabanne - 2013 MTV  Movie Awards

Kylie Minogue joined the many stars who took to the red carpet at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards held at the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California on Sunday evening, wearing a mini dress.

The 44-year-old Australian singer/actress wore a part-sheer chainmail silver dress from Paco Rabanne’s Fall 2012 collection.

The t-shirt-style dress isn’t really showing off Kylie’s gorgeous figure to full effect.

In fact, I think this dress is making her look wider than she is.

I’m usually a fan of Kylie’s style, but the whole look doesn’t feel very well thought out; it seems very thrown on at the last minute.

Black Christian Louboutin pumps completed her look.

Kylie Minogue In Roberto Cavalli – Icebergs Dining Room and Bar

Kylie Minogue was spotted leaving Icebergs Dining Room and Bar on Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday.

She was back home as she was recruited by Sydney City Council as creative ambassador for the city’s New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Dressed in a weather-appropriate sunny frock, the singer wore a Roberto Cavalli Spring 2013 dress, our second look at this collection off the runway.

The white and lime-green printed dress with nude Chantilly lace trims and thigh-high slits was styled with a white shoulder bag and nude pumps, with a pop of colour via her red nail polish.

I love this look, but I can’t help but be jealous of the glorious weather she is enjoying down under.

Kylie Minogue In David Koma – Hit Factory Live Christmas Cracker Concert

Kylie Minogue In David Koma - Hit Factory Live Christmas Cracker Concert

Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan reunited to perform their classic hit ‘Especially For You’ onstage for the first time in 23 years for the ‘Hit Factory Live Christmas Cracker’ concert held on the Friday before Christmas at the O2 Arena in London.

The event was an 80s extravaganza, with Sinitta and Rick Astley also on the bill.

Kylie rocked a David Koma Spring 2013 romper.

Her sleeveless romper, with a pleated miniskirt accented with bright-green patent panels, appears to be influenced by tennis players’ attire.

I won’t be surprised to see the Williams sisters and Maria Sharapova wearing this collection in the near future.

Black patent Dolce & Gabbana Mary Jane pumps completed the look.

This is the third look from this increasingly popular collection that we have seen worn by a singer.

Kylie Minogue For Elle UK January 2013

Kylie Minogue graces the cover of Elle UK’s January 2013 issue sporting a platinum blonde ‘do (don’t worry, it’s just a wig) and wearing a Christopher Kane dove-grey cocktail dress featuring a triple-bow yoke with bolt accents with Jil Sander colour-block sandals.

On the subscribers’ cover, entitled ‘Kylie & Elle: A 25-year love affair’, we see Kylie looking stunning in a captivating black-and-white close-up shot.

Shot by Cuneyt Akeroglu, the singer/actress opens up about her battle with breast cancer and her thoughts on plastic surgery.

The rest of her editorial sees her wearing more London-based designers, such as Simone Rocha, Antonio Berardi and Mary Katrantzou.

Elle UK’s January 2013 issue is out now. Here are some extracts from her interview.

On feeling her age: “I’m not going to lie about this. There are lots of times I look in the mirror and I see that gravity has taken hold. Or I suddenly see my face on a phone or on Skype and it’s like a Spielberg special effect and you just scream, ‘Who is that?'”

On considering plastic surgery: “I haven’t gone down that route yet and I don’t know whether I will but I’m not against it. We put make-up on every day, we tint, pluck, wax, we do anything to make ourselves look as good as we can and I think it’s pointless being hypocritical about something that if it’s done well can be really good.”

On relating to women through her battle with breast cancer: “Women come up to me in the street and just start talking to me about what they are going through… I stand there in the street and I just hug them. I hug them because we both know what they are feeling. I feel close to every one of them and I think they do to me, it’s not about anything else but what we’ve all been through.”
