Kylie Minogue's 12th studio album, Kiss Me Once—with song titles like “Sexy Love,” “Sexercise,” and “Les Sex”—drops this week, and to get you in the mood, we wanted to take a trip through her three decades of the Aussie vixen's face and body on TV, movies, and in videos. But don't miss the the steamy video setting for "Sexercise," which has the singer working out on everything from a pommel horse to ab balls. Of course, she looks way sexier doing it than we ever would but that's why she's Kylie.
