Kylie Minogue immortalised in a bronze statueNovember 23rd, 2007 - 2:54 pm ICT by admin
Melbourne, Nov 23 (ANI): Pop star Kylie Minogue has been immortalised in a bronze life-size statue to be revealed at Melbourne’s Docklands.
Minogues new figure, complete with lace body stocking and red high heels, will be erected alongside fellow Aussie entertainment greats Graham Kennedy and John Farnham.
The unveiling, to be held at Waterfront City, comes on the eve of the release of her new album, X, on Nov 24, reports news.com.au.
Minogue’s new likeness is created by Melbourne sculptor Peter Corlett, who is reportedly inspired by the pop star’s Showgirl tour to create a figure that showcased the “ultimate Kylie”.
The statue took three months to produce and, unlike many of his previous works, has splashes of colour.
Corlett liaised with both Kylie’s management and dressmakers in London to get her body measurements.
He then found a cafe waitress, with the same measurements, to pose. (ANI)
