She’s never shied away from her sultry side.

But Bella Thorne took a more chaste approach to fashion while filming her new project Habit in LA on Monday.

The 22-year-old actress was spotted wearing a nun’s habit and standing in front of a classic car as the cameras rolled.

Interestingly, she paired the religious attire with some classic Converse sneakers.

With her, Bella carried a handbell and a teal bucket which was decorated with a cross.

Cameras followed the multihypenate as she confronted a male character, who appeared to cover at the nun’s feet in fear.

There are scant details about the upcoming project, which doesn’t even an IMDB page at this point.

But Bella has tons of other projects in the works right now. The star is currently filming the Malin Akerman-fronted action comedy Chick Fight, in addition to the thriller Masquerade.

Meanwhile, Thorne has four different film projects in the post-production stage: Leave Not One Alive, Southland, Girl, and The Babysitter 2.

In the new image Roddy’s eyes were still bruised and swollen however her new face shape appears to be taking shape following the treatment.

The media personality was wearing a pink velvet robe with beaded detailing around the collar for the image, highlighting her flair and love of glamour.

On Monday, Roddy filmed herself in the hairdresser’s chair, having her golden locks styled as she indulged in some self-care following the surgery.

Sipping champagne, Roddy looked in great spirits, determined to feel her best as she undergoes the gruelling surgery. 

Roddy – who came out as transgender recently – is in Belgium, previously telling MailOnline that the £25k surgery will ‘make me look like a super model!’

She told us earlier in the week: ‘I can’t speak very well because they removed my Adam’s Apple so I have a sore throat. My eyes are very purple and swollen, I can’t see anything. I can’t see my new face.

‘If I want to see anything I have to hold my phone up in order to read.

‘My pain threshold from one to 10 is four, I look dreadful but my pain is very low. I just have discomfort.’

Discussing the surgery she said: ‘My hairline is much lower , my temples are much bigger as I have two titanium implants on my temples to make my face much more feminine. 

‘Hopefully I won’t get mistaken for being a man anymore. My face will change a lot, will be smaller. This surgery has given me the diamond face that I always wanted.  

Roddy exclusively told MailOnline that she had jetted to Belgium to have her jawline, forehead and the bones around her eyes shaved in a bid to feminise her face.

The media personality was transformed by Dr Bart Van de Ven from 2pass clinic, who specialises in Facial Feminisation Surgery, in what she said would be her ‘most painful surgery yet!’       

Praising the surgeon and aftercare, she said: ‘This surgery was pretty intense, it was four hours. I couldn’t be at a better place than here. I am being very well looked after.’ 

Roddy looked glamorous in a crushed pink velvet dress adorned with jewels and a black top as she spoke to her fans.

Roddy is now looking to the future and is excited about wearing bikinis on the beach in the summer and discovering her signature style as a woman.

She told the publication: ‘In my opinion I started modelling way too young. I was still growing and my confidence wasn’t fully matured. I didn’t love myself, or didn’t necessarily think I was worthy of all of the recognition I was getting.

‘When I was younger, I would see photos of myself that I hated and would be mortified that people wanted to work with me, because I was so self-conscious.’

Instead the model said that she had only been interested in fashion if it involved horses, such as when her supermodel mother Yolanda bought her new Hermes riding saddle for Christmas one year.
