Love At First Sight: 25 years of Kylie
Can you believe it has been 25 years (that's a quarter of a century!) since sensational Australian singer Kylie Minogue hit the charts with her first single The Locomotion in 1987? It's no wonder the pint-sized singer has been celebrating the milestone in true pop style.
Stylist magazine invited 25 of the world's greatest designers to dress Ms Minogue in homage to her years spent dominating the music industry.
Kylie celebrates 25 years in the music industry
Huge names from the fashion sphere, including former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, stepped up to the challenge, to design items specifically for a three-day shoot in Los Angeles with the Aussie singer.
Kylie told Stylist, "There were lots of 'Oh my God' moments during the shoot and I loved every minute of it.
"I can't believe so many designers sent things through. I'm so excited to see the issue. There were moments during the shoot when the outfits took my breath away."
In the article, celebrities and music stars got their chance to ask the Princess of Pop a question.
Jo Whiley, DJ, asked: "What's your current board game of choice? Have you ever tried Mr & Mrs or Pointless?"
Kylie answered: "No, I haven't tried them but I will take your recommendation! I love a board game, especially good old Scrabble, which the Minogue/Jones [Jones is her mother's maiden name] clan always bust out at Christmas."
Lisa Smosarski - editor of Stylist - said, "Everyone has a treasured fashion memory of Kylie, whether that's her crownless hat on her first album cover in the 80, stonewashed denim in the 90s or gold hotpants in the Noughties, so it's no surprise that the fashion world embraced this bespoke concept so enthusiastically. Her influence on fashion is indisputable."
With hits like Can't Get You Out Of My Head and Spinning Around confirming Kylie's position in music history, we can't wait to see what the next 25 years bring for Ms Minogue.
