Just in case it wasn’t already obvious from her recent public appearances, Britney Spears is back baby!

The X Factor USA judge is striking a fierce pose for the October issue of Elle US, while showing off her slim and toned figure in a sexy studded Versace dress.

Britney is a bit awkward in front of the camera these days, but that definitely didn’t come across in the cover shoot. Readers are going to be in for a treat this month, as Brit Brit dishes the dirt on her relationship with Jason Trawick, and also tells us that she really is OK with being snapped out in her tracksuit bottoms.

“I love my jeans and my sweats-I’m really just a tomboy at heart,” she said. “So it’s really hard for me to be like Kim Kardashian and be makeup-and hair-ready every time I go out of my house. I’m not a believer in that, you know?

“On the other hand, when you do wear those sweats, you’re like, Oh God, I should step it up a notch.”

Aw, Britney. Sweats or no sweats (hell, even hair or no hair if we’re casting our minds back to the dark years) we love you! We predict this issue is going to fly off the shelves!
