A makeup-free Christina Aguilera graces the cover of Paper’s latest edition.

Pretty much from the beginning, Aguilera became known for her crazy, eye-catching looks as much as for her music and entertaining presence.

Speaking of her “no-makeup” look and what it means to her, Xtina said:“I'm a performer, that's who I am by nature. But 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.”

The title of her Paper feature is “Transformation” and it couldn’t be more fitting. Shot by the talented Zoey Grossman and styled by Coline Bach, the publication captures Aguilera in Fendi, Burberry, and Stella McCartney, to name a few.

In the feature, Christina Aguilera also touches on how the industry has changed and become more progressive, comparing her breakthrough with those of women today. On sexual empowerment and sexism in the industry, she said: “Either women are not sexual enough or we're not fulfilling enough of a fantasy for you, but then if we're overtly sexual or feeling empowered in a certain kind of way, then we're shamed for it.”
