Fellow Mickey Mouse club alum, Justin Timberlake proclaimed Christina Aguilera the strongest and best vocals of his generation. As I mentally replay her musical catalog through my head, I do have to say I agree (admit it – even Genie In A Bottle was pretty good vocally,no? Just me?).
The singer extraordinaire has been promoting her new motion picture, Burlesque (check out the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), where she shares the silver screen with an icon for many generations, Cher. When she sits down for Thanksgiving dinner this month, I’m sure she’ll be thankful for these great opportunities as well as being honored with a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
Though I am a bit saddened by the breakup of her marriage (was I the only one rooting for these two strangers?), I’m glad she’s back in the spotlight. Rocking a red lip on the regular with curve hugging styles, she seems to have figured out the magic formula of being sexy without showing too much (and while being a mom) with every red carpet.

She’s not the only one checking the books and getting their study on, though. As mentioned before, green is a very trending color in a gal’s wardrobe, and so Christina aptly had some competition. Kristin Cavallari sported a green mini, which may have outsparkled, but not outshone Christina’s flowy strapless getup. It all depends on what you prefer on your starlet, no?
The two gals stepped it up a notch and had a forest green smokey eye. I am favoring Christina’s for the presence of lime green/yellow towards the inside of the eye (whereas Kristin’s looks like a neutral tone, or just an absence of color).
Who worked it best for you?
Christina Aguilera has really come into her own over the past couple of years. The gal with a squeaky clean image became dirrty, pinup, bionic, and is now no longer a single category fit. The actress/songstress returned to a longer length of hair and has gone back and forth between waves and curls in the past two months, all in a shade that’s more white than blond. I’m not sure if she has a full time makeup team, or if she has different people in charge of cosmetics, but some of the colors she’s sported recently haven’t been the biggest compliment to her skin.

I’m all for experimentation, but I would love if she warmed up her hair color a bit and kept the bronzing to a happy medium – her face seems out of place when the colors are too light, and comical when too dark.
What do you think? Would you change anything?
Sometimes I await album covers and photo shoots with more anticipation than product releases. Something about the creativity (or the assumption of such) and craftiness of putting everything together. It also means our favorite artists are coming out with something new, of course.
I have been a fan of Christina Aguilera for a long long time. I have always felt that she had a lot more personality and talent than a lot of other acts that go in and out of the revolving door of fame every fifteen minutes. I was happy for the gal when she got married and had a kid, but I needed her to put out some more music for me! (What anticipations! lol) The girl doesn’t disappoint.
The new photos for her upcoming album Bionic and the first single have been released. I found these images courtesy of digital spy and hotcelebshome.
What do you think?
She has been doing a retro pinup-y look for a while now, and had long hair for her upcoming movie/musical Burlesque. I feel like this is the retro pinup with some attitude. I like it… and you?
How you liking it?
