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?

Well, let’s see. Natural she looks like rest of us do when we have our “natural” faces on. Glam she looks beautiful, of course, as any of the rest of us would if we had a team of people working on us.
To those who say she “ugly” or “horrific” looking in the natural pic, … Get a life.

Her makeup artist does such a great job glamming her up that her “natural” picture does no justice to her pretty facial features. Instead, she ends up looking exactly like a GUY. Maybe a lighter haircolor and a little lip gloss would change that. (Or even tinted lip balm for that matter!)

Glam, most definitely!

Like you’re really gonna tell me you don’t go out without makeup on or your hair fixed? Come on! She may be famous, but she’s still human!!!!

OMG, she looks hideous! I like her, but without make up she’s just scary!

Probably 90% of celebrities look like that without makeup. Big deal! I think she is still a cutie and a fabulous singer.

I don’t wear make-up everyday only on special occasions, but I never leave home without my mascara and lip-gloss. IT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE!!! Her lips need some moisturizer. They look dry. She looks like Rosie O’Donnell ‘s daughter.

she looks like a boy on the right (natural) side. it’s the size and shape of her face…she needs big hair to take away from it

I saw other pictures from last night when she went out to the Broadway show without makeup and she looked cute, You guys always manage to pick out the worst ones. Anyways, more power to her to enjpy a night out without putting on a ton of makeup. 95% of celebrities would look just like that without makeup. I just saw Britney without any and she sure looked different.
