Dannii Minogue: Beyoncé helps me feel glam

Dannii Minogue loves being photographed to Beyoncé Knowles hits, because they “scream lip gloss and high heels”.

The Australian star was recently announced as the new face of world cosmetics brand ModelCo, and as a result will appear in a number of ad campaigns for the company.

The 39-year-old beauty has recalled a recent shoot which ended up in her having a “musical stand-off” with the photography crew because they dared to turn off Beyoncé’s hits in the background.

“At a shoot [recently] the music started out with Beyoncé and I was in girly heaven, shaking my booty and totally getting into the ModelCo vibe. Then all of a sudden it switched to heavy rock music,” she explained to

“It's always the photographer's assistants who pick the tunes and I had to say to the crew: ‘Hello? It's not about your guilty pleasure music! I'm the one making the moves up here so if the music doesn't scream lip gloss and high heels, I don't want to hear it!’ It was a musical stand-off!

“When I'm doing a photo shoot, it's all about Beyoncé – Crazy In Love and Put A Ring On It.”

Dannii has also revealed her favourite work out tracks. The stunning star is famed for her womanly curves, and says that she is partial to rock-inspired music when she’s partaking in her regular fitness regime.

“And, when I'm working out and need to get fired up, I'm actually not averse to a spot of rock myself. My favourites are Aussie rockers AC/DC, Cold Chisel and Jimmy Barnes,” she revealed.

“If I was ever going to give you an Aussie music guilty pleasure tip it would be to get your hands on some Cold Chisel tracks.”
