Gimme Moore! Demi takes the plunge on the February cover of Harper’s Bazaar.

Another day, another post-divorce celebrity cover!

After filing for divorce from Ashton Kutcher (maybe you've heard about it?), Demi Moore is getting her groove back with a beyond-sexy cover shoot for the February issue of Harper's Bazaar.

Rocking a sheer black Tom Ford dress over a plunging Calvin Klein bra, the 49-year-old (!) Moore proves that looking good is the best revenge.

Of course, it helps to have a cutout Gucci swimsuit and a Balmain Spring 2012 beaded graphic-print bustier dress, both of which the brunette beauty wears in her fashion spread with lensman Cedric Buchet, at your disposal too. 

The star also gets candid with photographer Amanda de Cadenet (her co-producer on the new Lifetime interview series, The Conversation), opening up about finding spirituality, sleeping in the nude, the guilty pleasure of watching Jersey Shore ("[it's] painful to watch, but you just can't look away!"), and making peace with her body,

"I have had a love-hate relationship with my body," the Ann Taylor campaign star says.

"When I'm at the greatest odds with my body, it's usually because I feel my body's betraying me, whether that's been in the past, struggling with my weight and feeling that I couldn't eat what I wanted to eat, or that I couldn't get my body to do what I wanted it to do.

Dynamic duo: Moore poses with her interviewer, friend, and co-producer, Amanda de Cadenet, in Bazaar.

She also hints at the recent attention her slimmed-down figure has received in the wake of her divorce.

"I think I sit today in a place of greater acceptance of my body, and that includes not just my weight but all of the things that come with your changing body as you age to now experiencing my body as extremely thin—thin in a way that I never imagined somebody would be saying to me, 'You're too thin, and you don't look good," Moore says.

"I find peace when I don't see my body as my enemy, when I step back and have appreciation and look at all that my body has done for me. It's allowed me to give birth to three beautiful children, allowed me to explore different roles as an actor, allowed me to be strong. You can't look at yourself in the mirror and tear your body apart. You have to look at it and go, 'Thank you. Thank you for standing by me, for being there for me no matter what I have put you through."

And while Kutcher himself isn't directly mentioned, the ladies address the topic of love and relationship woes, with de Cadenet calling infidelity the "ultimate fear" while Moore touches on abandonment issues.

"I would say what scares me is that I'm going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I'm really not lovable, that I'm not worthy of being loved," she tells her friend. "That there's something fundamentally wrong with me."

We think she's more than worthy!
