Kylie Minogue's feather headdress, milliner Stephen Jones and The Darnell Collection in New Zealand

At the Golden Centre Club Couture lunch in Dunedin, NZ, Stephen Jones, the British milliner extraordinaire, brought a selection of his hats. One of these hats was the headdress he created for Kylie Minogue to wear at the closing ceremonies at the London Olympics. The headdress was made with turkey feathers that had been dipped in resin and then plated in gold. 
AND I got to model it!!
