Masterpiece Or Disasterpiece: Kylie's Bright Yellow Long-Fringed Dress

Who? Pop tartlet, Kylie Minogue.


What? Attempting to add a (very bright) ray of sunshine to the otherwise grey English outlook, in a canary-yellow Stella McCartney dress that appeared to have hair. Ok then, it's not hair, it's just very "on-trend" fringing*.The jacquard-print frock was teamed with nude stilettos, tousled locks, neutral make-up and popping red nails.

Where? At the signing of her new book, Kylie/Fashion, Harrods, London.

Verdict? The colour's pretty but we can't escape the fact the dress looks like the lovechild of Dougal from The Magic Roundabout and an old-fashioned lampshade... Sometimes "fringing" is best left on the forehead.

*Isn't it doubly strange when a dress has its own "fringe" made out of "fringing"?
