You know what they say haters gonna hate, and some have said that The Voice judge Christina Aguilera has flaunted her sexy figure a bit too much for the cameras this season. In recent weeks, however, the gorgeous and talented singer has gone for some more demure ensembles and — guess what — she looks just as gorgeous! Take that, haters.

And didn’t you just love the headband braid last night? Not everyone can pull that look off without looking like an ad for Swiss Miss pudding pops but the pop princess managed to do it with ease. As her hair stylist David Babali said, “One of the many things I love about working with Christina is that she will always let me express my creativity!” Babali said the makeup and styling team went for a look that was “sleek and editorial.” Mission accomplished!

Celebrity Stylist Simone Harouche said Xtina’s look was “inspired by the classic school girl look.” And while she didn’t bare her (ample!) cleavage, the grey rag & bone sweater with leather collar over a Dolce & Gabbana skirt still managed to show off her sex appeal.

The makeup, as always, was flawless but toned down as compared to past seasons. Celebrity Makeup Artist Scott Barnes called the look “Purple Passion,” designed to offset the deep burgundy of her wardrobe.

A report surfaced a while back that said Christina had been asked by the powers that be to tone down her look this season, and while she could have been offended by the advice, she took it to heart.

An inside source reportedly told In Touch, "She is recording a new album that she wants to be a hit, so the new image can't hurt. She thinks she looks great and isn't hiding behind 10 lbs of hair extensions."

We can see where it might be tempting to show off that newly svelte figure each week but we adore the more classic looks she’s been sporting as of late. What do you think? Let us know!
