Exclusive: Kylie Minogue Fashion Book Launch

Kylie Minogue is now celebrating 25 years in showbiz. But rather than ease off the accelerator and have a break, the hard-working Aussie singer is marking the landmark occasion by giving herself more work. She’s just released a book called Kylue Minogue Fashion and she launched it in style with a book signing session inside Harrods department store, looking radiant in a yellow dress.

Before getting behind her table to sign for hours, she answered a few questions from journalists about fashion and glamour. Here’s my exclusive mini-interview. She really is as sweet as she looks!

Q: How do you stay so glamorous?

KYLIE: ‘Teamwork! From the very beginning, working in television, I was part of a team. Everyone has their job to do and the show doesn’t happen without every part of the machine working in harmony. I guess I carried this through with me and to this day I appreciate all the work my team do to help me shine.’

Q: But do you take an active interest in what you wear?

KYLIE: ‘My Grandma taught me how to sew when I was young and I learnt to pattern cut and all of that. There was a time I would have loved to be a fashion designer but performing won in the end.’

Q: Do you feel inspired by British fashion or Australian Fashion?

KYLIE: “I felt like a visitor in London for a long time. I started coming to record when they could write me out of Neighbours for a couple of weeks. Once I finally based myself here I still thought I would be going home soon. I truly felt part of the London scene when I started mixing with London culture.’

Q: What bits of London culture do you like?

Kylie: ‘I like trawling Portobello and Camden markets for vintage finds, and going to clubs and dressing up and seeing what others are dressing up as.’

QS: And finally, what music do you like aside from your own?

KYLIE: ‘An impossible question to answer, there are so many amazing, genius, life changing songs. Just off the top of my head, a favourite is Betty Davis Eyes but it seems wrong to even say that because there are hundreds that I’ve fallen in love with again and again. They are like gifts that keep on giving because once you fall in love with a song, whenever you hear it, the love story continues.’

Thanks Kylie! Put this book on your Christmas wish-lists now.

Love Zoe x

Hmm Team Derek! He is so in love with Kylie, i doesn’t matter who caelld off. He cares about her as herself not what she is and that is important while Lucas maybe hott he wants her to be werewolf more than he loves her. Derek broke it off with Kylie cause she pushed him away not because he was a jerk, he just loves her so much he couldn’t be pushed away. And Derek is pretty hot and is a total sweet heart while Lucas is just hot and protective and stupid. Derek may look like Trey but Kylie should get over him its old news, and Derek is better and less pushy. Kylie just doesn’t know what she wants- a sweet guy who loves her as she is..or a werewolf who loves her but wants he to be like him major difference. being protective and caring are way different things they both are protective but Derek is both he loves her as a friend and something more. So i say Go DEREk! but i am not saying theres bad things about Lucas i just do not like bad boys who call their Ex’s instead of their girlfriends. Maybe he and his Ex will get together since he totally still hung up on her. Lucas is hott and blue eyed but it doesn’t helpt the fact he is selfish about have a pureblood line, if you cared about someone enough you wouldnt care. Gosh and noo Lucas so totally doesnt understand Kylie like Derek does. Eventhough is emotion changing can be wierd he wouldnt do anything like that to Kylie..and she needs to unwad her panties cause she is so uptight about everything just go for Derek or whatever CC desides to do with the story (possibly a super duper new hot guy?) haha but full on team Derek ya’ll
