Wow! What a weekend for Sydney-siders and those who were lucky enough to attend Mardi Gras 2012 - where of course the standout attraction was Miss Kylie Minogue - celebrating 25 years of iconic idolatry. The bb breakdown this week takes a Step Back in Time with the fab fashionista - and has a look at how to achieve her look. After all, Better the Devil You Know...
Confide In Me
When Kylie started dating Michael Hutchence, there was almost a public outcry - our Kylie with the wild boy of Australian rock? But she was blissfully happy - and her image definitely got an overhaul for the positive. She started to take fashion risks - some that worked, some not - and to develop the style she is known for today - glamorous and gorgeous.
They Call Me the Wild Rose...
The moment everybody started to take the so-called Singing Budgie seriously - her duet with indie hero Nick Cave. Kylie shone through in the film clip with her translucent complexion and amazing figure. She was seductive without being sleazy - something we would all no doubt like to achieve. Vintage slips and knicker sets can help you grab this look and run with it - try simplicityisbliss for some beauteous buys.
If you want a new look, why not try for a bit of Kylie's charm and chic? Kylie is known for her beautiful skin, smile and sparkling eyes. So what better look to emulate than going naturally nude - with a twist? A great way to recreate a perfect face and pout is to start with MeMeMe's Seventh Heaven facebase. A primer that will make you number one in the eyes of all who see you, it smells amazing and is easy to apply.
Follow it with Savoir Faire's 3-in-1 concealer - a beautifully packaged miniature powder, concealer and base in one. A slick of Eye of Horus mascara will bring out the cat slant in your eyes. Then for rosy cheeks and a just bitten pout, add MeMeMe's blush me! and Poppy Tint to apples and lips - the gold hotpants will look astounding with an awesome face to match... Finish your look with some fabulous scent from Miller Harris - gorgeous in a bottle - Kylie would approve!
