Earlier this month we got our first look at the cover artwork for Christina Aguilera‘s new album Lotus. Today we get to check out a stunning promo photo released to promote the album and I have to say … THIS is the kind of photo that should’ve been used for the album art. Honestly, the cover art for Lotus isn’t my favorite. I don’t hate it but I didn’t really respond to it when I first saw it (actually, I’m still not responding much). This photo, I’m responding to. Check it out in full below and see what you think.
Soft make-up, cute flower usage … this is a very pretty photo. This is the kind of softer look that I really would LOVE to see from Xtina more often. She usually overdoes it with the garish make-up and it sometimes makes her look cheap. Look how lovely she looks in this photo. Don’t get me wrong, I hate a lot of Britney Spears album covers, too (Femme Fatale? Blagh!) and as long as the music on the disc is good, I’ll be a fan. But this is the kind of image that I’d love to see Xtina put out more. I am in LOVE with this photo, aren’t you?
