Not to be outdone by Cavalli or Dolce & Gabbana, Jean Paul Gaultier is the latest designer to lend his couture expertise to create custom-made costumes for a singer. The designer has created eight haute couture looks for Kylie Minogue’s “X” world tour that kicked off last night in Paris. Kylie opened the show in a purple chiffon gown from Gaultier’s 2006 collection that was completely couture modified to fit her. Some of her other dazzling outfits include a blue and white “K” logoed cheerleader- and football-inspired outfit complete with padded top, shorts and high heel sneaker shoes. She also showed off a long red satin dress, an equestrian-inspired look that included a black long tailed coat with fringe and over-the-knee leather boots, a sexy Geisha outfit with long Swarowski crystal mesh sleeves, a long turquoise gown with coral heart embroidery, a navy sequin sailor outfit, and finally a crystal embroided corset and black satin pants. With all these amazing costumes, we can’t decide which one is our favorite — maybe the Geisha? Tell us: What costume sounds best to you?

It’s a damn shame that Kylie still won’t bring her tour to the US–I would LOVE to see one of her amazing (so I’ve heard) concerts!

If I were singer Jean Paul Gaultier would be my first and only choice to design my costumes-he is genius! And Mary is right-when do we get to see Kyle in the US? Any particular reason she wouldn’t tour here? Please share!
