Kylie Minogue dressed by Marchesa

Kylie Minogue will be wearing Marchesa and Jean Paul Gaultier on her new tour, which starts tonight in Britain.

The brand, helmed by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, is instantly recognisable for its couture gowns, and is the go-to label for stars such as Olivia Wilde, Sarah Jessica Parker and Eva Longoria.

They've now teamed up with pint-sized pop star Kylie to help create some memorable outfits for her Kiss Me Once Tour, which kicks off in Liverpool, UK, tonight.

"When Kylie approached us to design her costume for her European tour, we jumped at the opportunity," Georgina and Keren gushed to British Vogue.

"Kylie is lovely to work with and we were thrilled to work with her again - this project was definitely a collaborative process. Kylie liked a gown that we designed for our Spring/Summer 12 collection, and we used that as a starting point and began sketching a few options for her review."

Kylie's tour will be taking in dates across Europe, before moving to Australia in March 2015.

The singer is well known for her dance routines, and Georgina and Keren were mindful of this when creating spectacular wardrobe moments.

"We were careful to keep her needs in mind while designing, as her costume would need to be both comfortable and easy to move in for her performances," they said.

Kylie, who once made famous a tiny pair of gold hot pants in her Spinning Around video, is looking forward to donning the new outfits.

"I'm thrilled to be collaborating with Marchesa," Kylie smiled.

"They have created a stunning couture gown, which absolutely shines during a beautiful moment in the show. Working with the Marchesa team has been a lot of fun. Georgina and Keren are true delights."

Kylie will also be wearing designs by Jean Paul Gaultier for the shows, including a pink baby-doll creation featuring a sweetheart neckline.
