Kylie Minogue is set to be the subject of a new exhibition in London’s Victoria and Albert museum. ‘Kylie: The Exhibition’ will host a display of classic costumes from her 20-year career, including the oil-stained dungarees she wore in her role as Charlene Robinson in Neighbours in the 80s and the controversial gold hotpants she donned in her Spinning Around video. Kylie said: “I hope visitors have a great time exploring the exhibition, finding the familiar and discovering the new.”
The exhibition, which opens in February next year, will reveal 45 stunning stage costumes from Kylie’s nine world tours, as well as hats, accessories and photographs. The 38-year-old donated many of the glitzy outfits herself and is planning to add to the exhibition after she resumes her ‘Showgirl’ tour next month after recovering from breast cancer. A museum spokesman said: “Kylie decided to put her clothes on show like this because it is a lovely way of remembering her career.”
The exhibition originated in Melbourne, where it attracted 300,000 visitors during its three-month run.
