Ariana Grande achieves the impossible: looking sexy AND demure.
Well, heyyyy there, Ariana Grande looking sooo cute ?n' coy on the February issue of Cosmopolitan! (#YouKnowYou'veMadeItWhen) Can we just say how much we love this look? When most celebs pose for their Cosmo cover, they're wearing, like, NO clothes, and whatever they are wearing is probably covered in leopard print and/or made entirely of silk. But PROPS, Ariana! This strappy black dress thing is not only sexy ?n' strappy, but it totally agrees with your trademark princess thing! #Approve! You're officially a good girl gone (a little bit) bad!
So demure. So pretty. So... JELLY.

The "Right There" singer didn't just pose seductively for the Cosmo camera -- she also talked about everything from climbing the music industry ladder to her relationship with The Wanted's Nathan Sykes to how she admires classy ladies like Barbra Streisand: "I think I'm an old soul," Ariana revealed to Cosmo. "What excites younger people doesn't excite me… I’m kind of a boring, normal girl who likes Harry Potter and to sit in her pajamas and sing."
"...I like Barbra Streisand, and when was the last time you saw Babs getting, like, turnt up? That’s kind of the road that I, as a lady, would like to go down." Hear that? Ariana's a LADY. (Whoa, whoa, whoa, she's a lady.)
20 bucks says Ariana's not actually that warm in that sweater.
Later, when it came time to spill the deets about her BF, Nathan, Ariana described their first date: "We were going back to his hotel to watch a movie, and he had Ladurée macarons and sunflowers waiting -- I love Parisian baked goods, and sunflowers are my favorite flower. He had taken the DVD player out of the bedroom and into the living room, because he said he didn’t want to take me into the bedroom on the first date." SUCH A GENTLEMAN. *Cries*
Even though Ariana is a self-proclaimed Bah-bra Streisand / Parisian baked goods connoisseur, she'll always be, well, the girl next door: "People often mistake my kindness for weakness, and they didn't expect much from me, because at the end of the day, I’m just a nice Italian girl from Boca." Guhhhh, can we just say... We'd really hate Ariana if we didn't already love her to death. That's all. Carry on with your day.
Pretty, pretty princess.
