Colton Underwood is seen in nothing but a leather jacket in shots from a brand-new photoshoot.

The shoot is one of The Bachelor star's first since coming out as gay in an interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America earlier this year.

The images have been captured by celebrated fashion photographer Damon Baker, who has photographed the likes of Troye Sivan and Taron Egerton for the cover of Attitude magazine in the past.

"A little wiser"

Colton, 29, also shared some of the pictures to his Instagram account, alongside the caption: "A little different. A little better. A little wiser."

The photographs were taken at the home of Nicola Formichetti, who also worked on the shoot. ("I’m coming back for the disco ball," Underwood told Formichetti in an Instagram comment.)

The shoot precedes Underwood's upcoming Netflix reality show in which he'll be starring with Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy.

Discussing his sexuality with Variety back in May, Underwood said: "I was ‘the Virgin Bachelor,' but I did experiment with men prior to being on The Bachelorette... When I say ‘hookups,' not sex.

"I want to make that very clear that I did not have sex with a man, prior to that."

The Attitude Summer issue is out now.
