New York, Nov 6 : American pop princess Britney Spears never looked better than on the cover of the December issue of Australian Cosmopolitan, thanks to a photo of hers taken five years back.
Spears, who was dressed in a slinky black strapless mini-dress in the picture, is seen tossing her tumbling blonde locks over her shoulder, the New York Daily News reported.
Photographer James White had taken the pictures four years prior to her infamous head-shaving meltdown, for an Esquire magazine cover story that ran back in 2003.
The upcoming December issue of Australian Cosmopolitan has the picture on their cover with the line, "How a broken Britney bounced back".
The fresh-faced photo had been taken before Spears married her ex-hubby K-Fed or gave birth to sons Sean Preston and Jayden James.
