She is a pop star who strives to reinvent herself time and time again, so it is perhaps not surprising to hear Kylie Minogue say she loves sexy fancy dress.

The Aussie diva, who released her new album Aphrodite this month, told the Scottish News of the World that she relishes the wacky outfits she sports as part of her career in the spotlight.

"I get my kicks dressing up in crazy outfits on stage or in videos or photo shoots," she laughed.

Kylie added that she admires the costumes of Lady Gaga, although she admitted that she wouldn't want to try to compete with most of them!

The singer showed off her racy side last month when she attended the New York Inspiration Gala, which had a naughty bondage theme.

Kylie turned heads in a Jean Paul Gaultier stockings and suspenders combo complete with handcuffs, which made her look like she had created her own police-themed sexy fancy dress outfit.
