Queen of kook, Lady GaGa is one of the most fashionably daring singers to ever grace a stage in a peroxide-blonde wig and leotard. And it seems her out-there stage style has influenced Kylie Minogue, who's just set off on her first ever US tour.
Kylie, now 41, began the first leg of her American shows in California last night and took to the stage in a mirrored sci-fi creation, reminding us more than a little bit of Lady GaGa's Glastonbury get up.
Kylie's mirrored, sculptural bustier with pointy statement shoulders was created by king of the cone bra, Jean Paul Gaultier.
La Minogue has always gone for the wow factor when it comes to her stage costumes. The self-confessed high heel-addicted showgirl is dressed by super-stylist William Baker. Baker has himself turned into something of a celebrity in his own right since becoming both Kylie's style guru and confidante.
Kylie's For You For Me Tour sees the star don a selection of fabulous stage costumes including Christian Louboutin's over-the-knee boots, a shimmering black leotard and feathered head gear.
Here's to plenty more style hits from Minogue and Baker, even if they are a little bit GaGa...
