And we most certainly love it!
Though not as festive of a cover as far as December issues go, the timeless beauty still looked fab in a navy blue three-piece suit that she complemented with a handful of silver jewelry.
Her cover look was then completed with her perfectly wind-blown ombre locks and fresh-faced makeup.
The spread stuck to the natural theme with Julia posing in an alleyway in just an oversized white blouse and lace-up oxfords.
Ooh, doesn’t it just remind you of Pretty Woman??
We only wish we could see what the rest of the spread looks like now!
Check out the a peek of the spread in the gallery (below)!
