Kylie's BAD HAIR DAY

Article excerpt

Oh KyLie, what have you done? There's no need for a 41-year-old to sport a matronly bob. snapped recently in Paris she looked more mother of the bride than pocket sex siren. not only is she wearing a frighteningly bouncy cut, she's added coppery tones.

The problem is, Kylie has a weakness for all things French. Remember that dodgy Brigitte Bardot look? Kylie is in Paris to record her new album but also to consult with Jean Paul Gaultier about outfits for her first Us tour, which kicks off in september. Put her in spangles and thigh boots immediately, please, JPG. And that's an order!

We're loving the low-rent ridiculousness of this idea, as well as the fact that many retailers, including Accessorize (sunglasses, pictured, [pounds sterling]45), Ted Baker and Monsoon will be offering up to 30 per cent off.
