The countdown to Christmas started today at the Oxford Street Christmas Lights Switch On Event at Pandora, an anticipated event which is broadcast and seen by millions around the globe.
Australian singer Kylie Minogue will launch her new fragrance for women, attributed to the controversial Marie-Antoinette, called Pink Sparkle.
The new perfume will be on sale in July 2010. It is inspired by the luxury pink champagne, which is very hard to find in stores.
Pink Sparkle will be available in 15 ml edt and 30 ml edp, along with 200 ml shower gel and body lotion.
Kylie Minogue (41) is leading a breast cancer charity campaign for the first time after her successful battle with the disease.
The singer posed in a silk sheet with the logo of Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, for photographer Mario Testino.
Minogue was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 during the Showgirl tour. Later she was treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy and returned to the stage to continue her tour in November 2006.
Kylie Minogue has launched her new fragrance - "Couture"
Couture is a sparkling, sophisticated floral musky fragrance that exudes elegance and modernity.
The perfume embodies the new aura of Kylie – a modern icon with sophisticated and glamorous personal style. The essence of her elegance is captured in a feminine and contemporary floral musk.
The singer - clad in a vintage black lace cone-bra dress from the
designer - was in the crowd at Paris Couture Week for the golden age of
Hollywood-inspired show from the man who will co-style her forthcoming
North American tour.
Models were made up in the style of classic screen sirens including Joan Crawford, Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo and Rita Hayworth, and took to the catwalk to music punctuated by dialogue clips and film soundtracks of the era.
The range included trench coasts, pinstripe trouser suits, tight corsets, lacy bodices fur coats, mink-trimmed tailored suits and lavish velvet gowns
The petite singer - who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 - has put on weight since undergoing chemotherapy treatment and believes her looks have improved because of it.
She explained: "It was hard to deal with. I still deal with it. I've got fat ankles hidden under these boots.
"But I think my body in many ways is better for having weight on it. When I look back at some pictures, especially before I was diagnosed, I just think, 'That's too thin, that doesn't look good. That doesn't look right.' "
The Italian fashion house's site www.dandgstore.com will sell clothes,
accessories, beachwear, eyewear and jewellery, which will be available to 31
countries worldwide. Speaking about the website, Stefano Gabbana told WWD.com: "The
boutique is like a game. It's a fun and immediate way to shop, without space
or time limitations. We are confident it will get people even closer to D
and G's dynamic universe."
The news comes just days after the designers - whose celebrity fans include Kylie Minogue, Victoria Beckham and Naomi Campbell - announced they were cutting their prices by up to 20 per cent. Gabbana admitted people were less willing to part with their hard-earned cash during the current economic climate so have slashed the costs of their sought-after designs.
The Italian fashion house's creative director won the accolade at the ceremony at London's Berkeley Square Gardens, where some of the world's most glamorous women were in attendance.
Kylie Minogue stole the show by winning Entrepreneur of the Year and Woman of the Year and looked stunning in a black simple dress and animal print pashmina.
The 40-year-old singer is delighted to have the opportunity to work with the Spanish jewelery brand, not least because she is allowed to borrow some pieces.
She said: "I love jewelery and it's wonderful to be able to have my pick of all these gorgeous designs. The pieces are fun, stylish and completely affordable. I'm totally proud to represent something beautiful and Spanish."
