I was watching the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night, and absolutely fell in love with Christina Aguilera’s soft new look. I love the shiny short bob, I love the color, I love the subtle mauve makeup! But, I’ve also loved Christina’s various beauty incarnations throughout the decade, and admired her fearless attitude toward self-expression through hair and makeup. I’m in a festive mood today, people, so why don’t we take a look back at her various personas in celebration of her overall fabulousness?
