Dannii Minogue's style has changed since becoming a mother.

The Australian beauty - who gave birth to son Ethan in July - admits she is surprised to be suddenly more drawn to wearing garments that she would never have considered before.

She said: "I am wholeheartedly embracing the feminine looks that we have seen all over the catwalks.

"Being a new mum, I have, for the first time, connected with my inner earth mother and I love the sheer softness that Envelopes curves rather than hugging them - tremendous for hiding baby bellies!

"It's not a style I've been drawn to in the past, but I think fashion reflects how you feel on the inside and I'm definitely floating right now. Chiffon, chiffon, more chiffon, sun ray pleating and ruffles - divine."

Dannii also admitted she is struggling to find the time to fit in her previous grooming rituals as Ethan keeps her so busy when she is at home.

She added to Britain's Glamour magazine: "I now know how impossible it is to find time to do these things that used to be a regular part of my life.

"So forgive me if my nails are chipped and my knickers are on my head where my hat used to be."
