The Can’t Get You Out Of My Head hit-maker rested her hand on her face in the photo while looking off to the right of the frame. 

The budding superstar wore her hair swept back off her makeup-free face.

Kylie – who told her younger self to stop ‘sulking’ – didn’t appear in very high spirits at the time the picture was captured.

It follows the hit-maker’s recent collaboration with Olly Alexander for the official remix of his new single, Starstruck.

The song was released as part of Olly’s musical project Years & Years.

Rumours Kylie and Paul are planning to wed emerged when former pop star-turned-actress Billie Piper appeared to accidentally reveal the news in an interview with British ELLE magazine in February.

At the time, Paul’s stepmother Gloria said she was ‘thrilled’ and ‘excited’ the pair are planning to marry as she spoke to MailOnline.

Gloria also said she had met Kylie and liked her. ‘She’s very nice I’m thrilled they’re engaged,’ she said.

‘It’s very exciting. But I’m sorry, I cannot tell you any more because I’ve been told not to. I respect my son and I respect Kylie too much to say any more.’

Despite Gloria’s confirmation, a representative for Kylie denied the engagement to MailOnline.
