Kylie Minogue And The Dolce & Gabbana Lucite Platforms

Manolo says, the Manolo is of two minds about the shoes. On the one of the hands, they are compelling and baroque, on the other they are slightly ridiculous.

However, despite this confusion, the Manolo does know that if the Kylie Minoque wishes to wear these shoes, she needs to pair them with something simple and elegant, something not as underwear-flashing busy-trashy.

    I don’t care if they are Dolce and Gabbana; lucite platforms are T-A-C-K-Y, tacky! Ask me, the stripper shoes go with the overly revealing dress. Kylie should know better.

    We needn’t worry about an insignificant, lightweight one-hit (OK, TWO-hit) wonder on this side of the pond…

    Before I read the Manolo’s comments I was thinking the exact same thing. Those shoes could be kind of fun if they weren’t paired with that god-awful outfit. Girlfriend needs to hop on the good taste train.

    Nope, sorry. Those are stripper/hooker shoes no matter what you wear them with.

    Agreed; it’s the incredible see-through outfit!
    I did see some lucite kitten heels the other day that I thought were very cool and sculptural– I’ll see if I can find them again.

    I love how the fug ladies described this outfit as part dominatrix, part lampshade. She can do better.

    Fascinating shoes but not wearable anywhere besides the runway or on a stage with a pole. I can’t figure out what the dress is all about.

    I just don’t think there is a way to wear a lucite shoe without calling to mind the dancer of the exotic nature. It just doesn’t happen. But then again kylie does kind of look like she stepped away from an 8 hour shift on the pole….

    the dress should be a bit below her unattractive knees,no?and I agree, adifferent one. cool shoes, tho

    I would have to say that the shoes match the outfit. But the overall effect if you ask me is quite trashy looking.

    I’ll be honest…I don’t even know who this girl is.

    I think that a woman of 39 who just got done being treated for breast cancer (including surgery), probably feels a need to dress a bit trashy once in a while to reassure herself that she’s still got what it takes.

    The Kylie Minogue (you misspelled her name in your commentary, Manolo) is like an Australian Madonna. She has been making delicious pop music since the 80s and is famous everywhere in the world, although it wasn’t until the early 2000s until she became known in the US.

    There is a good and a bad about kylies look. The shoe looks great, its a unique style platform. The black dress looks hot with the different designs in the front. The bad thing about kylie’s look, she looks like an exotic dancer ready to hit the pole at the strip club. Maybe if she would of worn a different dress she wouldn’t look so trashy.

    I disagree with all of you! I think she looks stunning – quite a dangerous combination and vibe but I feel she pulls it off. The dress is very Kylie, she’s been wearing revealing gear for years, the gorgeous shoes are quite unique for her, and help to add to her tiny 154cm frame! I think she looks beauuuuutiful with her new ‘do also. X
