Sk8er girl Avril Lavigne goes sexpot for Vanity Fair Italy

She didn’t make the cover, but Avril Lavigne’s photos did make it into this issue of Vanity Fair Italia 

Newsflash: Avril Lavigne is all grown up. She’s sexy in an adult way now, looking like a vampy version of Taylor Swift. The reformed sk8er girl is hoping to make a major comeback with a new album, which is why we’re seeing a lot more of her these days, including this sexpot spread in Vanity Fair Italy.

No, we didn’t know there was an Italian Vanity Fair, and no, we didn’t know that Avril had an Italian following, but we guess that she’s happy to remind anyone of her existence after a lengthy professional sabbatical. So far, the reception to her new tunes has been mixed (her first single hit 13 on the U.S. charts). Meanwhile, the eternally complicated pop tart is doing her best to stay in the headlines with controversial statements—“don’t compare me to Madonna”—and even more controversial hair. Maybe we should compare her to Rainbow Brite instead.
