Appearance: Teletubby Kylie. Cartoon Kylie. Kylie lookee-likee.
Sister Act: While Kyles has made the almost unprecedented metamorphosis from bubble-permed nafferie to genuine crop-headed cool, with her wasted gamine icon status, sexy boyfriends and sense of irony, the package that is Dannii smacks of desperation, silicone, and the me-me-me screams of the frantic-to-be- famous. Whistle one Dannii ditty. Then whistle I Should Be So Lucky. Now make yourself stop.
Boy Toys: Dannii, 25, has publicly ached over the demise of her 17-month marriage to simmeringly handsome soap star Julian McMahon. "My marriage will stay with me forever," she says. Now she's dating New York-based photographer Steve Shaw.
Wizards of Oz: Let's face it, trendy old London is full of irritating Ozzies who think it's cool to live here - see Jason Donovan, Kylie, and now Home & Away's Isla Fisher. They never lose their dreadful accents or shed their essential small town lack of hip, but they do cop roles in pantos and behave Lycra-and-lager-lout style in trendy clubs.
Past Form: Never forget that Dannii was famous first then Kylie came along and spoiled all the fun. OK, OK, she may have had a role in Young Talent Time when she was virtually a toddler and called plain-old "Danielle", but obscure Antipodean broadcasts count for very little in this world. Kylie is the original diminutive long-toothed Ozzie singing-and-soaping sensation, Neighbours' Charlene to Dannii's mere Emma of Home & Away.
Plastic Fantastic: Dannii, 5ft 2ins, has changed in a few brief years from a raven-tressed balloon face with a chubby hooter to a slender blonde with narrow nose and large breasts. "I don't have a problem with surgery," she says. Dannii recently posed in that internationally prestigious organ Australian Playboy.
Fame Prospects: Dannii displays the determined camera-happy grin and glittering eyes of the ferociously ambitious. Expect further reinvention, body modification and a few more careers, including a spot as agony aunt for Australia's Woman's Day and the odd pet food ad.Reuse content
