Olivia Newton-John arrived in Las Vegas on Wednesday to mark the beginning of her 45 show residency at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino.

Echoing her Grease character Sandy Olsson's trademark all-black leather outfit, 65-year-old Olivia sported a pair of leather trousers and a black blazer as she arrived in Sin City.

In honour of the residency, which is called Summer Nights in Las Vegas, Olivia rode on the backseat of the very same Ford Mercury Cadillac used in the 1978 film's drag-racing scene.

Hailed as one of the most iconic on-screen couples, John and Olivia ditched the perms and leather for their video I Think You Might Like It.

Olivia donated her share of the album's profit to charity. Diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, the actress gave her proceeds to the eponymous Cancer and Wellness foundation.
