Most 2012 shoots feature glam and fabulous supermodels, but the Katherine Heigl Elle US January 2012 shoot will take you by surprise with its more classic, intimate theme.

The magazine features Grey’s Anatomy's Katherine Heigl as the face of the issue. It is not often that one sees her on the cover of magazines, but this leading lady proves that she has all the ingredients of a certified "it" girl. Dressed in classy 70s-style dresses and tops, Katherine ravishes in the black and white feature.

Captured by Carter Smith, the ‘Ms. Congeniality’ editorial puts its best foot forward; Ms. Heigl is even seen sipping on a glass of champagne, lending a nod towards celebration for the holiday.
