Kylie's gone back to baring her most famous asset, 13 years after THOSE golden hotpants!

The Daily Telegraph reports

It's been 13 years since Kylie Minogue shimmied her derrière in a now infamous pair of gold hotpants, but time has most definitely been kind to her most famous asset.

In fact, Kylie's behind looked more pert than ever, in several photographs she shared on her Instagram page while on holiday this week.

Despite the fact the 45-year-old singer was standing in front of a picturesque ocean view, it's not hard to guess what aspect of the shot caught her fans' attention the most.

Alongside the picture, in which she was seen wearing a cutaway leopard-print swimsuit, Kylie wrote: 'Ready to go ... into the blue'.

But it was another photo that she later shared that would have raised the most eyebrows as her derrière looked more perfect than ever.

Kylie shared another image of herself jumping into the sea with a perfect posture which showed off her toned physique.

She first of all teased her fans with a picture of the water and asking; 'Wanna wanna see me jump into this??'

Minogue then posted the image which glorified her most famous asset for all to see while still wearing the flattering leopard print swimsuit.

Since sporting the gold hotpants, which her stylist famously picked up for 50p in a charity shop, in her 2000 Spinning Around video, Kylie has well and truly cemented her status as having the celebrity world's best bottom.

But speaking previously about the attention her behind attracts, Kylie mused: 'I don't know how it happened. Okay, so yes, I put them in gold hot pants, but really I don't know.'

Kylie is currently on holiday in Portofino, Italy, and was seen out on Wednesday looking stunning in silk a red-and-white striped silk T-shirt and black pencil skirt.

The singer has been something of a social butterfly of late as, just days before, Kylie enjoyed a night out at London's Hakkasan Hanway Place restaurant on Saturday night, wearing a cream negligee dress.

And a day earlier the award-winning popster had paid a visit to Rihanna's hotel, where she stayed for over an hour, sparking speculation the two singing divas may team up for a new single.

Now that they are Roc Nation label buddies, that suggestion isn't too far fetched, especially as Kylie's new album shows a more urban influence thanks to collaborations with the likes of rapper Brooke Candy and legendary R&B producer Darkchild.

While the album is still unnamed, Kylie did tease a sample of the debut single from the new LP called Skirt.

But despite being part of the Roc family, Minogue is adamant her musical DNA is fundamentally still present in the record.

'[The album] would have some sparkle, some sex, some insouciance,' Kylie told E! Online. 'And joy - that's what I would hope. That's what people tell me.

'There's a lot to be said for making people feel good. That's, like, the most rewarding part of what I do.'
