Kylie Minogue had an exclusive guest list Monday night at the cavernous Royal Albert Hall in London, while she topped the bill at the star-studded Fashion Awards 2021.

The Australian singer joined performers, including Charli XCX, at the event, which returned to full capacity after a year ravaged by coronavirus, sparking lockdown restrictions and health and safety concerns.

Kylie, 53, took the stage in a floral patterned jumpsuit and confirmed she has lost none of her allure while performing her 2003 hit Slow.

Event organizers were quick to recognize the singer’s contribution to the British fashion industry by putting her cover shoots for POP and Vogue magazine on the massive stage.

The fashion prodigy, a married father of two, had privately battled a rare form of the disease called cardiac angiosarcoma. He was diagnosed in 2019.

“We are all shocked by this terrible news. Virgil was not only a genius designer, a visionary, he was also a man of beautiful soul and great wisdom,” Louis Vuitton director Bernault Arnault said in a statement.

“The LVMH family joins me in this moment of great sorrow and we all think of his loved ones after the death of their husband, brother, father or friend.”

His designs have been supported by fashion’s biggest names, including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Hailey Bieber and sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid.

Italian fashion designer Donatella Versace was one of many celebrities to pay tribute to Abloh on Sunday.

“Virgil, I’m lost for words,” Versace said on Instagram. The world has lost a fashion superstar. An innovator. A creator for the history books. I think of all your loved ones on this tragic day.’

Born on September 30, 1980 in Chicago, the first generation of Ghanaian-American Abloh grew up in Rockford, Illinois.

Although he had no formal training as a designer, he learned from his mother, who was a seamstress.

On the day he graduated from technical school in 2003, Virgil met Kanye West and met his then-manager John Monopoly. Soon after, he joined his creative team.
