Kylie Minogue has bared her famous bottom on the cover of GQ Italia.

The 46-year-old Aussie pop icon rocks a teeny black bikini with pink polka dots on the cover of the magazine's August edition.

On the cover that imitates a 1950s Coppertone Suntan ad, a naughty poodle tugs off Minogue's skimpy bikini bottoms, revealing a snowy white bum contrasted against a golden tan line.

Minogue posted a teaser of the cover shot to Instagram.


"It's Summertime!!" the glamorous blonde said of the post that attracted more than 10,000 likes.

"Stunning as always kylie xo," buckers78 commented.

Carmen Electra and Jim Carey have posed in similar covers for Esquire magazine and Rolling Stone.

Minogue is due to perform at the closing ceremony of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games on Sunday.

Her Kiss Me Once world tour begins on August 22, Ibiza, Spain.
