Two small years of career behind her and Kim Wilde is already a star. The sale of her records and the number of spectators who came to hear her and applaud her during her recent European tour are there to confirm.
Already, with 'Kids in America', her first single, she seduced, charmed, enchanted most of us. Now both boys and girls are crazy about her voice and her look of a charming rocker. Although professional at the extreme, nothing at Kim seems to be prepared or studied! "Incredible!" She exclaimed. "Since I have been singing, people have been trying to find out how I found my image. What are my makeup artist, my hairdresser, my stylist? Recently, I was told that a great French hairdresser offered her customers a "Kim Wilde Cup". It makes me laugh because my hair is me cutting them and a little bit in spite of common sense!
