Kylie Minogue performed the final concert of her first ever North American Tour titled For You, For Me at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC, NY last night. After she took her final bows and said her last goodbyes (hopefully, not for long) she and her crew made their way out into NYC to celebrate the completion of a very successful tour. Here are a couple photos of Kylie out on the town in NYC last night:
All the models are wearing it, as are the celebs. And now Kylie Minogue has joined the fashionable ranks of the leather brigade. The pop princess slipped into a form-fitting black leather dress as she ventured out in New York last night. The below-the-knee length of the ensemble, complete with its high neckline, ensured the singer, 41, carried off a truly sexy, but non-trashy, look. She adds to a growing list of star who are opting for leather, which has featured prominently in the autumn catwalk shows. Kate Moss attended Paris Fashion Week in tight-fit leather dress last week, while Victoria Beckham was this week spotted rocking a pair leather trousers with studs. Those who dare to wear it have to be brave, however, as the unforgiving material has a knack of showing up every lump and bump. Pint-sized Kylie, however, naturally carried it off, teaming her outfit with a pair of criss-cross black heels. The Australian singer last night complete her nine-date For You For Me tour in the Big Apple. It marked her first tour of North America and also saw her perform in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, Oakland and Toronto. Kylie’s tour was well received by critics, who praised the singer for managing to perform energetic dances while singing live. Variety writer Andrew Barker said: ‘Her voice tends toward tinniness and lacks depth, yet she’s obviously proficient and can hit some very big notes when required – and unlike many of her backing-track-assisted contemporaries, Minogue’s vocals seemed to be entirely live.’ Billboard critic Keith Caulfield added: ‘Let’s be clear – this wasn’t a lip-syncing showcase. Minogue sang live and was in fine voice throughout her set. ‘She has repurposed some of the best moments from her previous globe-trotting outings for her first U.S. tour – thus giving American concertgoers a taste of what they’ve missed all these years.’ Kylie’s costumes on her new tour come from the catwalk collections of Jean Paul Gaultier and Dolce And Gabbana.
Alas … and now the tour is over … and Kylie is going back to Europe where she is (rightfully) beloved and appreciated for being the amazing artist that she is. I truly hope she comes back soon … hopefully with her next tour ;) After the jump, check out a video that Kylie and her people made as they arrived in NYC for the first of 3 shows which took place on Sunday night …
I was very, very lucky to be able to attend her first two NYC shows as well as her Hollywood, CA and Oakland, CA shows. I never DREAMED I’d be able to see her perform live in the US … let alone be able to see her 4 times in one tour. I just LOVED every second of this tour … had I been able to stay in NYC one more night, I would’ve been there last night, too. Speaking on behalf of all the Minogue fans here in North America, I want to send all my love and thanks to Kylie for finally bringing her tour here to our country … and y’all come back now, ya hear?
