She's usually the picture of elegance at any showbiz event.

And it was business as usual for Kylie Minogue as she joined Dolly Parton at a gala evening for 9-5: The Musical at London's Savoy Theatre on Sunday. 

The Can't Get You Out Of My Head hitmaker, 50, snuggled up to the country music legend, 73, at the venue at the glittering bash for the new musical based on the 1980 movie of the same name.

The original movie starred Dolly, alongside Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as three working women who lived out their fantasies of getting even with their misogynistic boss - with the musical remake featuring songs written by Dolly. 

For the event, Kylie looked stunning in a flowing blue and white patterned maxi dress with rolled-up sleeves and ruffled detailing.

The songstress kept her sleek blonde tresses hanging loosely on her shoulders and accessoried her look with delicate silver and gold jewellery. 

The star's stunning features were accentuated with subtle purple eye shadow, while she added a slick of pink lip gloss to her lips.

Meanwhile, Dolly also opted for the angelic white look, with the star dazzling in a white, heavily embellished gown with silver fringing.

Sharing the news on Instagram at the time alongside a snap of her bloodied face, the ex Eternal star wrote: 'It breaks my heart to say I am having to take some time out and won’t be able to continue with my role in 9-5. Due to a nasty fall I have only gone and fractured my wrist and got 10 (yes 10) stitches in my chin...

'Following my doctors orders- they have said I will be ok but as they say in the theatre ’the show must go on’ and I wish the rest of the fabulous cast an amazing opening night and I will be back on that stage for 9-5 before you know it.'
