The ‘Padam Padam’ hitmaker admitted that the “custom” Morrissey Edmiston mini-dress wasn’t planned to go perfectly with her late INXS frontman ex - who passed away in 1997 aged 37 - but it just worked out that way and she hailed the 1987 red carpet sartorial moment “amazing”.

The 56-year-old superstar told the online edition of British Vogue: “This was such an amazing moment for me. Michael [Hutchence] and I didn’t plan to match this well sartorially, but we did! I was wearing a custom Morrissey Edmiston dress with the most gorgeous green satin shoes – I think they were Manolo Blahnik! – and shortly before leaving for the event, the premiere of my first feature film, The Delinquents, the hairdresser had a wig which we decided looked great. I always loved, and still do love, having fun with wigs… changing your look in an instant! I simply liked it and hadn’t given much thought as to the effect the bleached pixie crop would have. Michael and I were wildly in love and with him by my side, I had the best time.”

Kylie - who was giving a retrospective on many of her looks across her career, which began on the long-running soap ‘Neighbours’ - also recalled making a black Julien McDonald gown into a slinky cocktail number a little more “glam and rock and roll” to perform a Blondie cover with Justin Timberlake at the 2003 Brit Awards.

She told the magazine: “This was a Julien Macdonald dress which my creative partner and I chopped up before the show. It arrived as a long dress, and we just hacked the length off and left the raw edge. It worked so well for the performance: I was a surprise duet partner with Justin Timberlake at the Brit Awards, and we sang “Rapture” by Blondie. The dress was a good blend of glam and rock and roll, to match the song.”
