Rebel threw it back to her days on Rebel Island

While the fun throwback brought back the image of great times for the Australian star, the swimsuit in particular was a reminder of a heartbreaking loss as well.

Sporting the phrase made iconic by fellow Australian legend Olivia Newton-John, it was one Rebel had shared in her tribute after learning of the star's untimely passing earlier in the week.

Having worked with her before, she shared a throwback of them embracing alongside a heartfelt message, writing: "You were the most gorgeous lady inside and out, you are a true Aussie icon and to play your daughter on screen in A FEW BEST MEN was beyond an honour. 

"Seeing you star in the huge Hollywood blockbuster GREASE with your natural accent was so instrumental to me as a little girl, helping me to believe that it was possible for an Aussie girl to star in huge international musicals.

The actress paid her respects to the late legend

Rebel continued: "You were so kind to me and it was such a blessing to know you Olivia. I'll never forget us singing at the piano in our lunch break on set together - what a complete legend you are! I am so sad you are gone. Love and Light always to you ONJ, Rebel xoxo."
