Keke Palmer, who recently turned 22, is slowly but surely shedding her child star image, and she’s doing it in all the right ways!

Posing for this year’s October issue of Maxim, the Just Keke host sports relaxed, leisurely looks by American Apparel and Calvin Klein.

Keke serves up a fresh and dewy bad girl look in one photo — showing off her dangerous curves — while playing the perfect girl next door in a relaxed white T-shirt and socks in the next.

KeKe has been up to more than just slaying the photo shoot game, though. Later this month, the budding starlet will play a sorority girl alongside Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Ariana Grande and more Hollywood heavyweights in the upcoming horror-comedy series Scream Queens, created by Ryan Murphy also of American Horror Story.

“I did a horror movie before this, and I loved it, loved it, loved it,” says the 21-year-old actress from the set of Scream Queens. “I just want to keep doing more.”
