Stage costumes can be held to slightly different standards that red carpet fashion. Nonetheless, that is the deal with this costume on Kylie Minogue? There is no where (on this planet, at least) that this dress is fashionable. In fact, none of the separate elements are even fashionable. Unless you are the drag queen captain of Battlestar Galactica.

Let’s look first at the flesh colored leotard under the dress. Unless you are figure skater and don’t want to flash the cameras during your triple-salchow-into-a-double-lutz combo, you shouldn’t wear an outfit that needs–much less shows–a flesh colored leotard.

Then we have the sheer, diaphanous skirt which evokes a bad I Dream of Genie memory. Topped of by the odd ribbon pattern on her chest. Is it meant to accentuate her sternum? Highlight her rib cage? Be a purple map for open heart surgery? And the best accessory for this look? Why, opera length gold gloves, of course!
