Kelly Clarkson: Do You Like Her Glam or Natural?

01/10/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Since winning American Idol in 2002, Kelly Clarkson has been no stranger to mixing up her look — from blond to brunette, from sweet to sexy, from long to short — but we still couldn’t help noticing the dramatic difference between her most recent red carpet look and her off-duty style. At the CMT Giants event in late October, Kelly sported a perfectly curled coif and polished makeup. But this week, she visited the Broadway musical Avenue Q with no visible makeup and a newly cropped, darker do. It’s always intriguing to see stars with fresh faces, and this former Idol is no exception. Tell us: Do you like Kelly glam or natural? Which look is her strongest?

No makeup isn’t a “look.”

Jennifer Aniston’s makeup from the People’s Choice Awards is a “natural look.” Going without makeup is just going without makeup.

No one looks great without makeup on,unless, you are truly a natural beauty.Kelly deserves to go out in public without makeup if she wants to. I prefer the glam look just the same.

Judy, you’re right!!

Some people just need glam to look better! And, I agree with some of the comments here….about this is the worst photo comparison possible!!

Plus, this photo was probably taken at some odd hour in the morning in some random hotel she was staying at!

I am sure she looks okay either way!

I love Kelly. I saw her in concert, and her show was amazing. She is a beautiful woman, however, I think the black is too harsh for her. The bridge of her nose looks like it was injured, too. I think it was brave of her to go out with no make-up on, and face the cameras, and subject herself to all of your negative comments. Just proves herself once more, that she is a kick ass girl. And just like myself and millions of other ladies, she looks much prettier with make-up.

HOLY HIDEOUS! She definitely needs a little make-up because the no make-up “natural” is not working well for her

You know the answer to that question- look at her- and I agree with Carolyn- that is not a natural look, that is sans makeup.

i went to school with kelly, and that is just her being herself with no makeup. Its good to see fame has not changed her. But I do agree glam is more appealing.

Definitely glam looks better, she looks too boyish otherwise!!

Caroline on

Well lets face it girls, we can all use a little help to look our best.However,I can’t believe she was brave enough to go out in public being a celebrity,without cover. Good for her.I could never be that brave knowing I would be photographed.
