Over a decade later, Christina Aguilera is channeling the title of her career-defining album, Stripped. After previously teasing "new things on the horizon," the 37-year-old multihyphenate was just revealed as the cover star for Paper's Spring 2018 issue. The stunning shoot oscillates between pictures of Christina wearing avant-garde makeup and nearly no makeup at all.
In the interview, Christina said she is in the process of reassessing her beauty look and embracing a more natural look. "I'm at the place, even musically, where it's a liberating feeling to be able to strip it all back and appreciate who you are and your raw beauty," she said. Without missing a beat, however, she added, "I mean, I'm a girl that likes a beat face, let's not get it twisted."
Christina's barefaced cover look has made us realize a couple things: For starters, she must be a time traveler, because she looks like she hasn't aged since her "Genie in a Bottle" days. Second of all, who knew she had such sweet freckles? Ahead, see all the stripped-down pictures from her shoot, plus all the edgy ones, too!
