Kylie Minogue fronts breast cancer campaign
Kylie Minogue is fronting a breast cancer charity campaign for the first time following her own successful battle with the disease.
Minogue, 41, posed in a silk sheet emblazoned with the distinctive target logo of Fashion Targets Breast Cancer for photographer Mario Testino.
The singer and actress was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 during her Showgirl world tour.
She was later given the all clear following chemotherapy and radiotherapy and was able to resume the tour in November 2006.
"It means so much to me to be part of this year's campaign for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. I wholeheartedly support their efforts to raise funds for the vital work undertaken by Breakthrough Breast Cancer," she said.
Sienna Miller and Claudia Schiffer also posed wrapped in the target silk sheets.
The images will be used in a media campaign launched today which will run until mid May.
Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (FTBC) is a fundraising campaign from UK charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
It has raised more than £10.5 million for Breakthrough Breast Cancer since its UK launch in 1996.
This year FTBC is working with retailers including M&S, River Island, Warehouse, Topshop, Coast, Laura Ashley, my-wardrobe.com, Whistles, Superdry and Melissa Odabash, which have each chosen items to be sold for the cause from today.
No less than 30% of the price of each item will go directly to Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Minogue, Schiffer and Miller are urging women everywhere to "Wear your support" for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer and the 46,000 women diagnosed with the disease each year by buying items from this year's range.
