Captioning the snap, she wrote: “Dear teenage me … no more sulking … ONE MORE SLEEP until your birthday! (ps … well done on knitting that jumper ).”
The icon in question is of course Kylie Minogue, and her loyal followers were full of compliments for the snap.
One wrote: “How gorgeous!”
Another commented: “So adorable.”
A third said: “Oh so cute.”

Last week The Sun revealed the Aussie superstar will feature on a new version of Olly Alexander’s current hit Starstruck, and he has repaid the favour by writing a new song for her.
Starstruck became Years & Years’ ninth Top 40 tune earlier this month but the new version with Kylie, which she recorded in Melbourne, is set to boost it even further up the charts.
But that’s not the only thing Kylie has been working on while in Australia, as she has pulled together a deluxe version of her No1 album Disco which will feature several new tracks, including a previously unheard song penned by Olly, and a collaboration with Jessie Ware.
A music insider said: “Kylie and Olly have been friends for years and have been back in touch recently because they love each other’s music.
“Olly asked if she would feature on a new version of Starstruck and she jumped at the chance as she thinks he is one of the most talented artists around right now.Olly Alexander is known for his music as Years and Years and his role in Channel 4’s It’s A Sin[/caption]

“Also there was a song which Olly had written which Kylie loves, so it has turned into a really lovely working relationship.
“The updated version of her album is shaping up really nicely and it looks like it will be out later this year. She’s really excited because it’s all sounding great.”
The pair have history as far back as 2016, when Olly joined Kylie onstage during a concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall to sing Better The Devil You Know.
It is hoped that the updated version of Kylie’s album will be released to coincide with a tour, with the star having so far held off from announcing any live shows due to Covid restrictions.
