Glowing: X Factor judge Dannii Minogue launches her new clothing range Project D at Selfridges in central London
With less than three months until the birth of her first child, it seems Dannii Minogue has no intention of putting her feet up.
The hard-working X Factor judge launched her own fashion line, Project D, last night at Selfridges in London.
And although the clothes are eagerly awaited by admirers of Dannii's distinctive style, it was the mother-to-be who was the main attraction.
Dannii looked radiant in a glamorous sequinned black gown from the collection, which skimmed her bump.
Dannii told of her 'amazement' that the dress needed no alteration for her new fuller figure.
She laughed: 'This one's stretched sequin thankfully so it goes over the bump.
'Being pregnant has completely opened my mind to having to really try different shapes and things I haven't worn before.
'You've got to dress cleverly around it but I've managed to get into my dresses without any alterations.'
The main attraction: Radiant Dannii showed off her bump in a glamorous gown
Project D ranges in price from £210 to £485 and includes day dresses, cocktail chic and red-carpet-ready dresses.
Dannii added: 'Fashion has been a passion of mine since I can remember and I hope that every woman who slips on a Project D dress will feel glamorous yet effortless.
'Our philosophy is to make feeling confident with your wardrobe easy. We will do the hard work and get the details on the dresses right, so all you have to do is enjoy them.
'To me a dress design never comes to life till it is slipped on - who knows what adventures the dresses in this collection will get up to?'
Hard at work: Dannii and designer Tabitha Somerset Webb
The 38-year-old wore her hair in a flattering updo as she and co-designer Tabitha Somerset-Webb posed for photos.
She said she their close friendship gave her reservations about going into business together.
'You never know whether that's going to work with a friendship or completely destroy it... but it hasn't happened.'
During her appearances on the X Factor Dannii is widely thought to have trumped fellow judge Cheryl Cole in the fashion stakes - despite not using a stylist.
Now fans can emulate her style, with the launch collection available from the end of June, with an accessories line and a fragrance to follow later in the year.

Dannii, who plans to give birth in her native Australia, is also the face of Marks & Spencer's current ad campaign, along with Twiggy, Lisa Snowdon and singer VV Brown.
She is also working on an autobiography, scheduled for release this autumn.
Last week it emerged that a meeting with X Factor bosses about her future on the show had been 'positive', indicating that she is set to appear in the next series after her baby is born in July.
A source close to the singer said she had enjoyed a lunch with X Factor executive producer Richard Holloway and said: ‘Dannii made it clear that she could definitely make it work.
‘She is very keen to work and could easily return for judges' houses, which is filmed in September.’
