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?

Wow. Glam. Natural is for ppl like Jessics simpson and others. Pretty ppl only could do Natural. Very few hollywood can pull off Natural. So far Jessica Simpson have my one and only vote.

okay, fine on

The dark hair is too overpowering for her face. She doesn’t look well in super blond hair, but medium brown hair with higlights is a good look for her. Also, the cut is a little wrong for her. She looks good with a medium cut, almost shag-like, with a little wave.

Oh my gosh, she’s NORMAL!! ahhhh!! i think everyone forgets that a good 80% of celebraties look this way. it means that they are real people and dont actually have that unattainable beauty they portray. in other words, if we all had make-up artists, we’d all be supermodels. she’s just another person, like you or me.

I’m sorry, but no female should step out into public without a touch of powder, blush, and mascara. these three SIMPLE, 5-minute, touches add so much.

Although I do prefer the pic on the left, it’s nice to see that she’s not afraid to go out in public without make-up like most Hollywood starlets.

She defintely looks much BETTER all glammed up!!

dude, thats not even a question. obviously its glam. her skin is aweful otherwise. she looks like crap. i think she should go back to her old look ASAP.

That just goes to show you that anyone can look like a pop star with the right makeup and hair…I think it is awesome! Kelly is a great role model for young girls.

She’s lovely with make-up but if she would put her highlights back into her hair and maybe just mascara and lip gloss, she would look nice more natural too. Her hair is too dark/flat in the natural picture.
