Little Mix have unveiled their racy new look during a photoshoot for fashion magazine, Fault.
The Move group donned leathers and PVC for the mag, with member Leigh-Anne Pinnock stealing the show in a netted black top, exposing her cleavage.
Speaking of the 'darker' styling on their second album Salute, Pinnock's bandmate Perrie Edwards explained: "I think we’re just maturing. Obviously, our style is evolving, our music is evolving and everything is moving slowly together.
"We’re not wearing hot pants, gyrating on the floor. We’re just becoming a bit more classy, a bit more grown up. We’re just doing our own thing."
She went on to add that X Factor music mogul Simon Cowell "trusts" them when it comes to their sound and image.
Edwards - who is engaged to One Direction hunk Zayn Malik - explained: "People ask us 'do you see Simon Cowell a lot?' and whether he has much of an input in everything.
"To be honest, he oversees everything and he really knows his craft, he’s done it for a long time. But he trusts us to do everything and our label trusts us in the studio."
She added: "It’s quite nice to know that everyone in our team has trust in us to pull out something good, with our fashion, with our hair & makeup.
"They never tell us what we have to do or the songs we have to write. We control everything which is important to us."
‘The Spice Girls have been really supportive of us, which is amazing because they were the best girl band in the world and we always looked up to them when we were younger,’ Perrie Edwards, 20 gushed while discussing the bands celebrity fans, adding: ‘To have their backing and their support is one of the best feelings ever.’
But the band also count some famous boys in their fan group – and not just the One Direction lads.
‘The Backstreet Boys tweeted about how they loved our album,’ Jade Thirlwall, 21, revealed, with 22-year-old Jesy Nelson adding they could give All Saints – who are to tour with the BSBs this spring – a run for their money, by revealing: ‘They said they wanted to go on tour with us!’
The girls appear in the new issue of Fault magazine – on sale today – discussing their career highlights and achievements to date.
The ladies – which include 22-year-old Leigh-Anne Pinnock – smashed the record set by their idols the Spice Girls when their debut album, DNA, became the highest entering debut album from a girl group in the USA when it hit number four in the Billboard 200 in June last year.
