Nigella Lawson has posed make-up free for VOGUE.

The curvaceous cook has landed her first magazine interview since she was forced to admit to previously snorting cocaine and smoking cannabis while giving evidence in court against her former aides Elisabetta and Francesca Grillo last December, when they stood trial accused of £685,000 credit card fraud.

The 54-year-old star appears fresh-faced on the British magazine's cover wearing just a hint of blusher and mascara, with the help of a ''little retouching'' from the art team.

Nigella said: ''I was terrified of being photographed without make-up, and I hate having my looks talked up. It always makes me feel I'm going to be a disappointment in the flesh.''

The magazine added: ''Miss Lawson received a little retouching as we do with all cover images. Oddly given that she is a woman in her fifties, less than some people decades younger.''

The TV chef - who currently stars in new Channel 4 cooking reality show 'The Taste' - also hinted at plans to branch out from cookery in the future.

She said: ''I love what I do, but there are other parts of my brain that I haven't flexed.''

The domestic goddesses, who is a long-time contributing editor for the fashion bible and initially wrote a cookery column in 1995, is set to discuss her traumatic ordeal in the tell-all interview.

Not long before her drugs scandal, Nigella's marriage to art collector Charles Saatchi came to an end in July 2013 after 10 years of marriage, just weeks after pictures emerged of him with his hand around her throat in a London restaurant.
