About the book

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.
