51108: Kylie Minogue Honored in Paris

The City of Lights was illuminated by both the flash of cameras and the beaming smile of Kylie Minogue as Australia’s queen of the pop scene was presented with the Chevalier dans l’ordre des Arts et Lettres on May 5, 2008 in recognition of the singer’s “contribution to the enrichment of French culture.” The superstar had double the reason to rejoice, as her latest single, “In My Arms,” was released the same day.

The chanteuse, who is set to shimmy on stage in a series of Jean Paul Gaultier creations when her KylieX2008 concert tour kicks off at the Bercy in Paris on May 6, 2008, proudly posed after the awards ceremony with her medal outside of the Hotel de Crillon, a 5-star sanctuary on the Place de la Concorde. Beloved by the British as well, Queen Elizabeth is scheduled to bestow the honor of an OBE to the singer in July of this year.
