There goes that Lady Gaga again, prancing around in another jaw dropping outfit. Groin skimming, heavy metal leotard (designed by Jean Paul Gaultier)? Tick. Headgear that looks like a solar system model? Tick! That songstress is certainly a one-off… But hang on a minute, that’s not Lady G, it’s Kylie, rehearsing for her first ever US tour in California last night. The pert-bottomed singer is no stranger to daring stage attire - remember her Showgirl tour's Moulin Rouge inspired costumes, not to mention those hot pants (we all tried the Topshop version and boy, were they unforgiving). You can’t deny she looks fantastic (can you believe she’s 41?), but we’d have preferred to see something a little more original (and a little less ‘Gaga at Glastonbury’).
Kylie’s long term stylist William Baker has previously said he’d love to work with Lady Gaga. “I think she’s a great pop star,” he said, “Her look is strong but is beginning to look a bit contrived.” So contrived you’ve copied it William? Still, let’s not take away from the fact that Kylie looks A-mazing (in another shot she’s dressed in thigh high boots, with not a hint of cellulite and in a third, she’s doing the splits, held up by three muscled dancers). The pop princess wrote on her blog this week, 'No doubt tomorrow will be sunny for opening night! Nerves are buzzing and Camp Kylie is getting incredibly excited. Oh my goodness… Kylie-fornia!'
We wish her luck from all at Grazia - with outfits and choreography like this, the States won’t know what’s hit it.
