Check out Kylie Minogue's new look

The princess of reinvention Kylie Minogue (sorry, Kyles, Madonna's the queen), has been at it again – this time she's dressed up as a Geisha girl for a photo shoot to promote her upcoming world tour.

The singer, who is well-known for her stunningly dramatic costume changes, donned a fuchsia kimono, white foundation and vivid pink eyeshadow for the transformation.

KylieX2008 is the star's first major world tour since her battle with breast cancer. The £10 million show will see her performing in Greece, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Luxembourg, Russia, Latvia and Spain, and has already taken over half a million in sales.

The tour begins on 6 May in Paris, and moves to the UK in June at the Belfast Odyssey Arena before moving to Glasgow, Newcastle and Manchester ending at the O2 Arena in London.

Meanwhile, Kylie is said to have abandoned plans to crack America after her latest attempt failed.

She reportedly told a friend: 'I gave it my best shot. I won't try again.'

Kylie hit the US promotional trail hard, and appeared on numerous US shows to promote her album X, including The Today Show, Dancing With The Stars, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Late Late Show.

But, despite her attempts, the record All I See sold only 6,000 copies and debuted at number 139 on the US Billboard charts.
