Kylie brings back Grecian goddess look
Kylie Minogue dresses as Grecian goddess on her new world tour
Kylie Minogue has kicked off her Aphrodite World Tour in Denmark this week. The diminutive Australian popstar has paid homage to Greek mythology and culture in her new show through clothing and set design.
Touted as her grandest tour yet, Minogue has over eight costume changes, including one that sees her dressed as the Greek goddess of love. The costumes were all custom-made by Dolce & Gabbana. The show opens with Minogue wearing a Grecian white draped dress and strappy gold sandals.
As reported previously in the Neos Kosmos, Paola Di Trocchio, Assistant Curator, International Fashion and Textiles, National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) told the publication why white draped cloth is associated with Ancient Greek times. "Fallen drape cloth is associated with classical times," she explained. "Ancient Greeks worked out how to depict drape in marble, sculpture and that's why this image is associated with ancient Greece and knowledge, class and status. They had the draped cloth on the sophisticated and anatomically correct body. They were doing it really well before anyone else."
Kylie Minogue has been dressed in this ancient Greek drape style before with dresses designed by Dolce & Gabbana and the other by Ungaro.
