Britney Spears covers the December issue of Lucky, the magazine about shopping and style. December is Brit Brit's birthday month (her big day is Dec. 2), and what better way to celebrate her 31st year than with a magazine cover?

Brit looks quite the mom on her cover, pairing a sheer black top embellished with polka dots and a red skirt. The pink belt with a bow that she wears is just darling, too.

We know, she is a mother of two, but she's a far cry from the red latex catsuit-wearing vixen of her early days. And what's up with her hair? Her hairline also comes down far on her forehead. It almost doesn't look like real hair -- and maybe it's not.

In her spread (quotes courtesy of Extra), Brit Brit revealed that her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James think she is out of this world, with all kinds of fantastical powers. She shared, "They try to figure out where I go when I go film 'X Factor.' They’re like, 'Mommy’s going off to be a superhero.'"

You know, for Brit's charges on the show, that's not too far removed from the truth. She is their superhero too. Can't you just picture Brit, in a superhero's catsuit, with a big "S" on the chest?

Brit also revealed which fellow pop star she admires, in terms of fashion. She called Jennifer Lopez a "classic beauty" (which she is). She also adores Sarah Jessica Parker's style, since "her looks are really bright and funky and young." We could say the same thing about you, Brit Brit!

Brit also looks sweet as sugar in a powder pink top inside the mag. Check out that blinged out bracelet and her soft, petal-hued makeup.
