Pop star Kylie Minogue has been honored with a prestigious music industry award.
Stunning the crowd at a charity gala hosted in her honour, Kylie looked the picture of elegance in a Dolce & Gabanna golden brown gown.
She said she was ‘overwhelmed’ to be presented with the Music Industry Trust’s 2007 award in ‘recognition of her universally acclaimed status as an icon of pop and style’.
Clearly taking her recent movie White Diamond about her battle with breast cancer, to heart, she dazzled in diamond earrings from jeweller Tous.
And the bodice of her floor-length dress sparkled with thousands of Swarovski crystals.
Dolce & Gabanna had dressed her personally for the event at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane and she repaid the favour by dressing head to toe in D&G including her bag and shoes.
Her sister, Dannii, who is currently a judge on ITV’s X-Factor, accompanied her dressed in a column of silver by Australian designer Martin Grant.
Dannii presented the award to her sister after she gave an exclusive performance of her new single 2 Hearts.
Kylie said: “It is an incredible honour to be the recipient of this year’s Music Industry Trust’s award and I’m truly thrilled to be recognised in this way.”
The award has raised more than £2.7million for its two charities, Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy and the BRIT Trust.
David Munns, chairman of the award committee, said: “There is no doubt that of our 15 award recipients to date, Kylie is by far the most glamorous.
“She deserves this award for her success over 20 years, staying at the top in one of the toughest professions and inspiring millions with her grace, dignity and humanity.”
Previous winners of the award, now in its 16th year include Sir Elton John and Peter Gabriel.
Earlier this month she picked up the Idol accolade at the Q Awards for a career spanning three decades and more than 40 million global album sales.
