Kylie to tone down sexy image
Think of Kylie and you probably remember her shaking her ass in those gold hot pants, however the pint-sized pop princess is looking to tone down her raunchy image and smarten up now that she's approaching her forties. The Australian singer hits the big 4-0 in May and is looking to update her wardrobe with a more mature look in time for her European tour later this year. So, what new ensembles can we expect to see her in? Polyester belt dresses from Littlewoods finished off with some comfy orthopedic flats?
Of course not – this might be an older look for Kylie, but she's not ready for her twin-set and pearls just yet. The 2 Hearts singer will be working with eccentric designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, the mad mind that brought us Madonna in a coned bra for her Blonde Ambition tour in 1990. Her stylist William Baker explains: "The next tour will see Kylie ageing gracefully. She's celebrating her 40th birthday this year so what we have planned is to move in the right direction. We're working with Jean-Paul Gaultier on the costumes - he designed Madonna's Blonde Ambition tour. The outfits he designs are incredibly sophisticated. It's difficult in pop to remain young so what's the point?" Hear hear – if only others could accept such truths.
