Singer Kylie Minogue has revealed her new look as she continues her recovery from breast cancer.

Photographs of Minogue - taken by her boyfriend Olivier Martinez in the Italian village of Portofino - have been posted on her website.

A note with the images said Minogue is "relaxed and happy" and wanted to "send a big hello" to her fans.

Minogue, 37, revealed that she had cancer in May 2005 and underwent surgery in Australia two days later.

Pop career

The singer finished her chemotherapy in December but is continuing to receive treatment.

Minogue is hoping to reschedule the world tour dates she had to cancel

Minogue was forced to abandon her Showgirl world tour and an appearance at last year's Glastonbury Festival after her diagnosis.

Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis revealed earlier this week that Minogue could headline next year's festival.

Minogue rose to fame in the 1980s as an actress in popular soap opera Neighbours before launching a pop career, securing 37 hit singles in the UK.

She currently lives in Paris with actor Martinez.
