This stunning showcase of costumes from videos, tours, special performances and appearances on the red carpet, traces Kylie's extraordinary career. Whether showgirl, sex symbol, businesswoman, gay icon, singer, actress or songwriter, Kylie adheres to the fashion values and philosophies established by the classic stars of Hollywood, both on and off-screen. With forewords by Barry Humphries and Baz Luhrmann and an introduction by William Baker, Kylie's creative director and stylist, this is a wonderful record of Kylie's unique image. From the cute girl next door ("I Should Be So Lucky", 1989) to the sexy confidence of "Better the Devil You Know" (1990), through the cheeky ghetto disco of "Spinning Around" (2000) to the electro futurism of "Can't Get You Out of My Head" (2001), her styling evokes myriad fantasy worlds. The book features close-up photography of each costume alongside contextual photographs of Kylie in action and original sketches. The sequins, crystals and metres of fabric exist as a glittering reminder of a modern-day fairytale, a girl from Melbourne who seduced the world.
Features a preface by Kylie Minogue, an introduction by William Baker, Kylie's creative director and stylist and forewords by Barry Humphries and Baz Luhrmann.
I also liked Kylie's later "La La La" book, and I hope that she has another coffee table book out soon, because the last La La La edition was published back in early 03... and alot has happened in Kylie's world since then!
To my surprise, I found this book containing much more nudity than I expected.. It was also much bigger than it looked from the pictures (of the cover I had) seen!
The photographs are neverless great, but however, I've seen better in the world of photographic books ^_^
Great buy for BIG Kylie fans though!
This book is excellent. It show cases how great Kylie is and has some great pictures and information about Kylie.
Saying that, please don't forget about the La La La book. I personally think that THAT book is much better.
Con about this book is the front cover - very boring. A hand going up in the air with a wrist band saying Kylie. Mmmmm... stop and think. But it is pretty rubbish - would you do that if you were an artist and wanted to design a book???
I'll leave you to think.
Great book though, despite the horrible front cover.
That said, there are some beautiful pictures, tributes and commentaries. Well worth it.
