Dr Kylie Minogue even makes a graduation gown look gorgeous

Most of us feel pretty self-conscious when we have to get into full academic gear when we graduate, but Kylie Minogue looked as stunning and confident as ever in her gown and hat yesterday.

The Australian pop princess was picking up her honorary doctorate from Anglia Ruskin University for her work promoting breast cancer awareness.

We were there to witness it first-hand, and it was such a fantastic moment seeing her on stage.

She's already got an OBE and now Kylie can add Dr to the front of her business cards. Impressive!

The day before Kylie was already getting excited for her trip to the home of TOWIE.

She tweeted: "Tomorrow the only way is Essex...Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford to be precise. Honorary Doctor of Health Sciences award..WOW!"

Her followers sent her cheeky messages about her preparations, asking if she'd vajazzled and got a spray tan.

She hadn't gone down that route, thankfully, but she did show off her new brunette 'do.

At the ceremony itself, she took to the stage and told the graduates: "I never went to university so my dad will be very proud when he sees the pictures."

Congrats Dr Kylie!
