Were you a child of the 80’s and remember doing the “Locomotion” with your friends? Then Kylie: The Exhibition at London’s V & A museum, which opens today, is for you. Gold lamé, corsets, beads, sequins and feathers galore (and that’s just one outfit!) the exhibition is a homage to Kylie’s career, featuring costumes from the 80’s through to the present. Amongst the Dolce & Gabbana and John Galliano creations, the standouts are the pale pink Chanel gown with feathered train and diamante encrusted front that the singer wore recently for her Showgirl Homecoming Tour and the iconic screenprinted Museum Dress made in 2004. And after seeing all the miniature sparkly heels that accompany each outfit, I can confirm she is a tiny size 3. If only I could own all of these, um, in three sizes bigger — in the words of the showgirl herself, “I Should Be So Lucky” right? Click here for an interactive online preview or check out the show through June 10. — Monique Jessen
