Kylie wore two sensational outfits at the Brits
Kylie went on to defend her ex-boyfriend and credited him with helping her through her battle with breast cancer.
The singer was diagnosed with the disease in 2005 and was forced to abandon a world tour while she recovered.
In 2006 she told Elle: “On particular dark days, I'd be lying on the bathroom floor wailing and he'd say, ‘OK, honey, you can cry for just five minutes, then I'm taking you on the bike for a ride around Paris’.”

The singer dated INXS frontman Michael Hutchence for two years and the pair remained firm friends until his death in 1997.
It was a glorious time, I loved it
In 2015, Kylie opened up about the relationship during an appearance on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs.
She said: “I met a new person and I fell in love. Yes, he was this wild guy, he was the rocker, he was all of that.
“But I'm always at pains to say, he was Byron-esque, he was poetic, he was cultured and hilarious and tender, he was all of these other things.
“I guess, I was at the perfect age, I was 21 years old, to get the butterfly wings and go out into the world and we collided at that time and I guess he just fast-tracked some of it. Anyway, it was a glorious time. I loved it.
Michael sadly died in 1997
She credited the rocker with building up her stage-confidence.
“Professionally, he was so supportive,” she said. “Someone called me the singing budgie in Australia as a knock.
“So I did this warm-up gig and we said, ‘It's the singing budgie, take that, own it and go out’.
She continued: “I mean he was uber, uber famous. He's an icon already. And he was in the middle of the audience, just gazing up at me, and just willing me, willing me with all of his heart and his love to do well, and he believed in me.
“And it was at a time when so many people didn’t.”

Neighbours fans were delighted when Scott and Charlene fell in love off screen, but their relationship only lasted for three years.
Jason, 48, recently revealed that he was “devastated” when Kylie called him from Japan to tell him it was “over”, just weeks before she was photographed with Michael Hutchence.
He told The Mirror: “It was an extremely painful parting of the ways and, without doubt, I took a long time to recover from it.
“It was bad enough that she’d run off with anybody, but she happened to run into the arms of the greatest rock god of the period, the very guy who I secretly wanted to be.”
He admitted that he has since bumped into Kylie, who he duetted with on Especially For You, “quite a few times”.
He said: “The break-up never comes up in conversation. We’re not close enough to get into that.”
