KYLIE AND FRIENDS TRIP THE ‘LIGHT’ FANTASTIC

All the hot gossip from Ms Minogue's 'Light Years' album launch bash last night...

KYLIE launched her new album ‘LIGHT YEARS’ last night with a glitzy, star-studded party in London‘s exclusive Knightsbridge area – and nme.com were there to bring you the gossip.

Currently at Number Two in the charts with her single ‘On A Night Like This’, Kylie partied into the early hours at the trendy Isola restaurant with a crowd that included fellow Antipodean Natalie Imbruglia, Boyzone‘s Keith Duffy, looking strangely understated in a ‘country squire’-style beige blazer, Kelis, labelmates Coldplay and Moloko‘s Rsisin Murphy.

‘Big Brother’ contestant Sada was also there, looking supremely self-important while almost falling out of her skimpy bra top, as well as the show’s presenter Davina McCall. CD:UK presenter Cat Deeley was also there, along with The Royle Family‘s Ralf Little and his TV celebrity girlfriend Lisa Rogers. A rumoured appearance from Ricky Martin sadly failed to transpire but celebrity dress designer Julien McDonald was there to see Kylie wearing his handiwork, a green sparkly concoction that skimmed her diminutive form in just the right places.

Highlights of the champagne-fuelled evening included seeing Kylie boogie-ing on the tables with her feather-head-dressed gogo dancers to her recent Number One hit ‘Spinning Around’ and Keith Duffy getting a polite brush-off from the divine Ms Minogue when he attempted to engage her in a lengthy conversation. Must’ve been the jacket that put her off.

‘Light Years’ is released through Parlophone on Monday (September 25). The next single is due for release in December, and it’s to be ‘Your Disco Needs You’.
