MUSEUM QUALITY Minogue Aussie pop songstress Kylie Minogue is joining the likes of punk icon Vivienne Westwood with her very own fashion retrospective at the esteemed Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
Yes, lest they be lost to history, items like the gold hot pants she wore in her Spinning Around video will now sit in state alongside Turner landscapes and Rodin sculptures.
Opening tomorrow, Kylie: The Exhibition is sure to cheer the elfin musician in the wake of reports her ex-boyfriend, Euro heartthrob Olivier Martinez, has been getting cozy with Penélope Cruz. But not everyone's doing the Locomotion.
Reached for comment at the Bryant Park tents yesterday, Eva Longoria-styling fashion guru Robert Verdi said the 38-year-old singer was a bit young to be canonizing: "That's odd to me. I'm also 38. At 38, there's a whole 'nother half-life of wardrobe to wear. I wouldn't know her if I ran her over. I'm sure I'm not on her radar, but sorry, hon, you're not on mine."
Fear not, Robert: UK art critics are also calling bullshit.
