Titled "Lucy Hale Like Never Before," the shoot and accompanying interview is meant to show everyone Lucy is "not the timid little girl she plays on TV."
And boy, did they get that point across.
The photos shot by James Lee Wall (the cousin of Hale's trainer) show the 26-year-old actress and singer exploring her darker, sexier side in some bondage-inspired frocks including thigh-high mini dresses, bustiers and lingerie sets complete with garter belts.
Another shot shows the "Lie A Little Better" songstress wearing nothing but a black blazer and Christian Louboutin pumps, revealing a hint of her backside.
"We came up with this idea to do something really raw and a lot more grown up and edgier than I was used to doing," Lucy tells V. "It was something for fun, and something just to experiment a little bit."
She continued, "What a lot of people don’t know about me is that I do have two sides. I’m very professional and I’m very Type A when it comes to work, but I also have this pretty dark, almost provocative side to me as well. I’m just a petite girl with big eyes that looks really innocent, so they’d definitely be a little shocked to know certain things about me."
