Christina Aguilera isn’t exactly a style icon in the Fashion Spot forums, and her especially questionable outfit choices of late haven’t helped matters. So it comes as no surprise that forum members ventured into the thread for the February 2012 issue of Marie Claire with trepidation upon reading that Ms. Aguilera was the cover girl. That being the case, it was a pleasant surprise to see Christina actually looking really pretty and tastefully dressed on the cover. It feels like it’s been a long time since we saw an image where she wasn’t shoving her boobs in our faces, and truth be told, I could do without the “I love my body…my boyfriend loooves my body!” quote on the cover, but I’ll take it if it means she’s going to keep that body somewhat under wraps. She always finds a way to sneak in some overt sexuality; at least with the text it’s not as immediately obvious.
“I LOVE THIS. She looks great. A good angle with ANYONE can produce a wonderful photo,” [J.]Oliver posted.

If Christina would just take these hair, makeup, and styling tips and apply them to her public appearances then there’s a good chance she would become a lot more likable. Or at the very least she would be a lot less distracting. I don’t want to have to watch the next season of The Voice and continually wonder if her chin will get lost in her cleavage, or debate with my sisters over whether she is or isn’t actually wearing pants.
