Christina Aguilera, who will release her new album 'Lotus' in November, covers this week's issue of Billboard. She looks soft and serene in a cozy cage-knit sweater, which is perfect for the just-arriving fall weather.

For her recent magazine covers, Xtina has traded her signature glamazon look -- a modern update of Marilyn Monroe's red lips and loads of false eyelashes -- for a softer, prettier, lower maintenance style. It's a makeunder for the 'Your Body' singer and she's never looked more scorching hot.

Here, she's staring intently at the camera, with those icy blue eyes as captivating as ever. Her lips are pale pink and pouty, and we think it's a much more accessible and attractive look for her. Everyone does the crimson lipped, vixenish Marilyn look, and while it's a classic, Xtina looks so much more hip with her soft, thick waves and light makeup.

The singer and 'The Voice' coach indulged in a similar look on her Lucky cover, dressing down in denim and wearing minimal makeup. Or at least she was styled to look like she wearing minimal makeup. Either/or, the result was soft and sexty in a subtle way. Xtina is a drop dead gorgeous gal and can forego cosmetics altogether and still turn heads.

The Billboard cover tag screams: "The Resurrection of Christina." Have you listened to 'Your Body' yet? It's her best single in ages, so damn right she's resurrected! She's back and better than ever.
