Kylie Minogue: My Style Icon

11/02/2006 at 10:56 AM ET

Kylie Minogue handled her breast cancer ordeal with the maximum strength, grace, and most importantly, love from boyfriend Olivier Martinez that one could ever hope for. And she has somehow emerged from the illness looking more gorgeous than ever– she perfectly blends being a sophisticated adult with being a global pop-star. Her day clothes are always impeccably tailored with a unique twist, whether it be a quirky shoe choice, a trench coat perched on her shoulders, or an unexpected belt. And at night, she goes for all out glamour. How many women could look that at ease in a leopard-print satin gown? She is such a style icon in her native Australia that her costumes from the past two decades are currently touring museums! The best part is that besides the overwheming desire to raid her closet, there is so much more in Kylie to admire. — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

I’m so happy for her that she’s conquering cancer. And she looks absolutly beautiful. Good Luck on her full recovery.

shelly on

god bless her…..I hope she makes a full recovery and she looks fablous

I don’t think many people can pull off a leopard-print anything, but Klyie does with aplomb. (Though I like the more staid dark-on-dark outfit on the left.) Also, great haircut.

Martha on

honestly i hate her sense of style. also..ditch the hair cut

holly on

Uh, Martha. Her hair is that short because she had chemo. How about a little sensitivity? I think it looks adorable on her whatever the reason.

Kylie is gorgeous, talented and has a super unique sense of style. I’ve been a fan of hers since I was a little girl.
Now, I truly admire her courage and strength through battling her disease and I know that she will rise above it all and continue to be the fabulous entertainer that she is!

I love this posting because Kylie is not only lovely to look at, but inspirational as well. Hope you feature more of this celebrity in the days to come!

Hey Holly, lets see you get cancer, take chemo, so that it makes you sick and puke everyday, all your hair fall out and then have the courage to show your face not only in public but splashed accross magazines all over the globe.
People like you make me sick.
It’s kind of hard to make naturally curly hair look good when it’s a few inches long but she’s done a heck of a job….

Layla on

Hey JoJo,
I’m sure you meant Martha! not Holly….

Rebecca on

She looks gorgeous and I love her unique but classy sense of style. Way to go girl!

Gosh she is so beautiful…she went through so much in the past year, and her boyfriend, Oliver Martinez, took care of her the whole time she was sick. I was reading the article this morning on this site about how his love got her through it all, one paragraph just brought tears to my eyes.
“On particularly dark days, I’d be lying on the bathroom floor wailing and he’d say, ‘OK, honey, you can cry for just five minutes, then I’m taking you on the bike for a ride around Paris,’ ” she says. “I’d find myself thinking, ‘Hmm. Actually a ride on the bike sounds pretty good.’ ”
What a man!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dana on

She does look wonderful. I wish her the best.

Courtney on

Love the leopard dress on the right and I am not even a big fan of animal prints.

And the hair style looks outstanding! Kylie, you don’t need any long hair even again.

Kylee on

She looks awesome! Martha, until you can land this looks and have a spot in people magizine I think you should quit hatin’ because Ido’t have the money or talent that Kylie does.

jojo on

You’re right I did mean Martha…..Sorry Holly!!!

Kelly on

To Martha: how dare you tell her to “ditch the hair cut” when you dont even know what shes been through. Iam sure Kylie looks better than you’ll ever look, thats why your a hater and people like you make me sick…You should read more often sweetheart!

regina on

she looks kick-ass. the pixie hair cut suits her perfect and it’s good to see she recovered so well. i’m not a big fan of her music, but she seems like a very sweet person. so: the best of luck, kylie!

Andrea on

Wow. She looks amazing. Her fashion choices are right on and she is glowing. Poor girl has been through quite a bit and to come out of all of it looking like she does is absolutely admiring.
