School Of Cool #104: How to halt the ageing process like the gorgeous Kylie Minogue

on in Entertainment

Because being cool shouldn’t cost the Earth…

Kylie MinogueSo, who is she?
Kylie Minogue is the pint-sized popstar who rose to fame after her role in the Australian soap opera Neighbours. She broke into the music inductry in 1987 with her first single, Locomotion. This pop classic spent a whopping seven weeks at number one on the Australian singles chart and became the highest selling single in ten years!

Impressive. What else do I need to know?
She’s 44 years old (no that’s not a typo). She was genuinely born in 1968, over four decades ago. We have no idea how she still looks so amazing. But we like to think it’s Karma for all the nice things she’s done for Mother Nature…

So, she’s a cool lady, but why is she a Global Cool lady?
We love a celebrity who uses their fame and influence to endorse a great green cause or product. Over the years Kylie has often been seen wearing vintage clothes and accessories – showing us all that you don’t need to follow every fad to be classically fashionaly. Alongside her sister Dannii Minogue, she also promoted Vani T self tanning products – an eco-friendly range made from natural and organic products. It looks like avoiding nasty chemicals and harsh products has kept her skin glowing and youthful.

Once upon a time Kylie actually owned an eco-friendly house on French island (which actually is off the Australian coast and not in France). Although she sold it back in 2009, she’s still keeping eco-causes close to her heart as she’s now fronting the Lexus ‘Quiet Revolution’ ad campaign for a luxury hybrid car. Oh Kylie, you’re so amazing we just can’t get you out of our heads.

And just for old times’ sake here’s the video that shot Kylie’s behind to fame all those years ago…


frankensteinHere comes the science bit…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/
Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
