We're used to seeing Jessica Biel as the (ridiculously gorgeous) girl next door, but the latest issue of Gotham Magazine kicks her down-to-earth image to the curb.

Biel smolders on the magazine's black and white cover in a come-hither unbuttoned oxford. For the interior shots, she trades tomboy for femme fatale, donning a body-hugging, corseted number.

Her tousled, just-rolled-out-of bed hair ups the allure ante, while fallen straps and dark shadows add instant edge and an element of mystery to the starlet's usually approachable appearance.

Biel's latest role, in a period piece called "Early Virtue," contributed to the vibe of the photo shoot. According to PopCrunch, the actress describes her character as "...fantastic and glamorous and tough." If that was indeed the inspiration, these pics are dead-on.
