Miranda Lambert Covers 'Cosmopolitan' In Flawless LBD, Looks Confident As Ever — PHOTO

After the year she's had, it's clear that this singer is ready for a fresh start. And as Cosmopolitan's January cover girl, Miranda Lambert is clearly killing it. Lambert covers the glossy in a gorgeous little black dress and a confident smile. Simple yet drop-dead-gorgeous, if this Cosmo cover is any indication of how the upcoming year will go, there's no doubt 2016 is going to be a good one for Lambert.

Since the news of her recent divorce with fellow country artist Blake Shelton, Lambert has certainly been in the public eye recently. But no matter what the tabloids are saying about her personal life, there's no doubt that this Texas native is ready for a new chapter in her life. And her cover shoot for Cosmo very clearly proves that.

The country crooner looks absolutely gorgeous and undeniably confident in her own skin. There's no doubt Lambert has always had effortless poise, but this cover, from the simple styling to her amazing hair and makeup, really makes it obvious that nothing is going to slow Lambert down.

Let's take a peek at the image, shall we?

That sexy smize. That plunging LBD. That gorgeous bed head. I could go on and on. But my favorite part has got to be the sexy, classic LBD. Little black dresses are no-brainers, and since Lambert looks like a total babe in this one, it's making me want to rock one this winter.

Her cover ensemble is quite simple otherwise, with some key statement bracelets, rings, and a charm necklace rounding out the accessories. Of course, her blushing cheeks, smokey eye makeup, and glowing skin don't hurt either, pulling together this beautiful look that's perfect inspiration for the New Year (it is the January issue, after all), and also for the holiday season. This is the perfect Christmas dinner or NYW outfit.

This gorgeous, winterized LBD look isn't just reserved for magazine covers or Lambert herself. Check out some equally gorgeous options below, and some accompaniments to pair them with for a classic holiday look. Don't forget to channel Lambert's confidence and poise as well!
