Rashida Jones looses her “girl next door” image for new photoshoot
Rashida Jones who has always been typecast as the girl next door and daughter of legendary music producer Quincy Jones, has said goodbye to her “girl next door” image as she vamps it up in her latest photoshoot for Flaunt magazine.
And flaunt it, she does folks. The 36-year-old is seen in a number of steamy shots that doesn’t have “girl next door” stamped anywhere near it. In one shot, the brunette beauty wears a sheer top embedded with crystals designed by Naeem Khan and pairs it with high-waisted black underwear by American Apparel. She appeared to be letting the tiger out of the tank in this shot but not quite. Take a look at the next shot. In this one, she is all legs as she stands on a balcony overlooking a city skyline as she poses in black retro bottoms and a black silk lace bra by Dolce & Gabbana and on her feet she wears platforms by Giuseppe Zanotti. The whole shoot reeks of sex-bomb and the not-so glamorous Ann Perkins character who she plays on NBC’s comedy, Parks & Recreation is forever out the window.
The actress has said in her interview for the magazine that she still gets star struck when celebrities come to the house even though she is no stranger to fame and fortune herself. When asked about her dream dinner guest, get this, she said: “Albert Einstein was always on that ‘dinner list’ for me – just because of his facial hair ……. I’d just love to have known what it was like to be him and to have to make those decisions. Yes, girl next door trying to make a comeback but only for a short while.
Rashida will be making the red carpet rounds for her role in the upcoming drama “Decoding Annie Parker” which also co-stars Aaron Paul, Maggie Grace and Helen Hunt and she will also star in Cuban Fury, a comedy which is scheduled for release next year. This is one actress whose star is rising and one to watch in the coming years. One last note, the bombshell image suits you just fine, Ms Jones.
