Pop icon Christina Aguilera doesn’t make many public appearances these days, but lately every time she sets foot on the red carpet she looks better and better. On April 23, the “Beautiful” singer attended the 2013 Time 100 Gala after being named one of the most influential people in the world by Time Magazine.

Wearing a black, floor-length Victoria Beckham dress, Christina showed her tasteful Hollywood glamour with blonde, side swept hair, and a frosting of diamonds.

The form-fitting dress showed off Xtina’s hourglass figure and her minimal makeup was a refreshing break from her typically heavy eye shadow and intense spray tan style.

And though she dazzled on the carpet solo, Christina was more than willing to share the spotlight with Girls creator Lena Dunham. When the actress and writer approached the singer on the carpet, both women admitted that they’re big fans of one another. 

They then stopped to pose together for photographers and their girl power was overflowing.

And though Lena looked great, we can’t get over Christina’s polished, sexy look. It’s a far cry from her purple dress at the AMAs in November 2012.
