Barely looking a day older than when she released her self-titled debut record, the star stunned in the shoulder-less dress number, featuring a leg split as she stepped through the waves.

Kylie looked flawless in the sun-drenched image – which was taken in Cuba last year – her golden tresses tickling her features in the breeze.

She captioned the snap: ‘Ahhhh, take me back to the ocean!!! �� Have a good weekend #lovers!’

The pop star released ‘Kylie’ on July 4 1988 when she was just 20-years-old.
