Last week, Britney Spears was making headlines as she was announced as the new face of Kenzo.
This week, it’s Christina Aguilera. Is it 2002? Someone pinch me.
You see, Aguilera is back on the cover of a magazine and to be honest, we hardly recognised her.
The Beautiful singer covers the latest issue of Paper Magazine in barely-there makeup, a far cry from the heavily made up Xtina we’ve long been used to seeing.
Her lips are free from her signature red pout, her lashes bare and her skin delicately freckled.
Of course this isn’t totally makeup free – there’s a makeup artist credited and shoots like this nearly always involve some kind of grooming, lash extensions and extensive skincare prep – but it’s certainly the 37 year old as we’ve never seen before.
She’s stripped back. Raw. Born again.
