Christina Aguilera for Marie Claire February 2012
While Christina Aguilera is sexily styled in a Marlies Dekkers bodysuit and Agent Provocateur belt on Marie Claire's February 2012 cover, she's shielded by an Emporio Armani blazer, leaving her piercing blue eyes to seduce on the newsstands.
Inside the issue, the 31-year-old singer and single mom talks about being under public scrutiny, the importance of family and her new love interest:
"I've been through my highs, I've been through my lows; I've been through the gamut of all things in this business. Being too thin. Being bigger. I've been criticized for being on both sides of the scale. It's noise I block out automatically. I love my body. My boyfriend loooves my body. My son is healthy and happy, so that's all that matters to me."
