Return of the bottom: Kylie shows off her still pert posterior in a tiny webbed dress which left nothing to the imagination in her new video
Her famous derriere was the star of her 2000 video for her hit single Spinning around. And 12 years on, Kylie Minogue has proven that she hasn't lost a bit of the sex appeal has made her one of the most lusted-after women in the world.
The 43-year-old showed off her still incredible figure in the video for her latest single, Timebomb.
The video- shot on Old Compton Street in Soho, London last month- kicks off showing Kylie wearing a tiny pair of denim shorts accompanied by a leather jacket emblazoned with a huge red heart.
The pint-sized pop princess then wanders through the streets, ending up in a club where she shows off some moves with a pair of male dancers.
That's some confidence! The 43-year-old had no qualms about putting her figure on full display
Kylie then hops out and into an open-topped car, which takes her to a dark back alley. After running through the alley she ends up in a warehouse-style building, where she dances in a barely-there dress consisting of strips of black fabric held barely together by thinner strings of material.
The star is celebrating her long career by making a Best Of collection - to be released on the 4th of June here in the UK and on the 19th of June in the US.
The compilation album will include her hits 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head', 'Spinning Around' and 'wow',
Kylie has more recently been promoting her new movie, Holy Motors at the Cannes film festival.

But it was her battle with cancer which dominated a publicity interview with Paris Match magazine, with Kylie saying: 'Over time, people have a tendency to forget about it. 'Not me. A day does not go by without me thinking about it. Just looking in a mirror is enough – the scars are moral and physical.
'There are days when I feel an incredible anger, others when I say that I was very lucky in my misfortune.
'I always try to present an optimistic picture. At first, I look very open, but basically, I'm pretty reserved. I knew I was strong, I was fortunate to be surrounded by people who really loved me. 'I feel like a cat, having had several lives. In my career as in my personal life, I made enough bad decisions to land me in deep water. Finally, I haven’t got out too badly.'
Little familiar? The bare white background isn't dissimilar from Kylie's Can't Get You Out Of My Head video
Following her diagnosis with breast cancer in 2005, Kylie spent much of her time being treated in Paris, where she lived with her then boyfriend, the actor Olivier Martinez.
Now she is going out with the Spanish model Andres Velencoso – but expressed no intention of marrying him.
Instead Kylie said: 'Love is hard work. I have never believed that marriage was the be all and end all.
