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?

Kelly is a very pretty girl either way, but the highlights and soft, natural makeup in this photo make her beautiful.

In all fairness, Kelly looks just like anyone would who had their picture taken without makeup and with a bright flash. I see people everyday who don’t wear makeup and look fine. However when you are accustomed to seeing celebrities perfectly done up, seeing them the opposite way is a bit of a shock.

That being said, if I knew I was going out and there was a good chance my picture may be taken and mass distrubted, I’d probably throw on a good concealer or foundation, a little blush, some mascara and at the very least, some lip gloss.

silly question!Glam.

Denise on

duh….now THAT is a stupid question. she looks scary and masculine “au natural”.

She looks better glammed up in this photo, but other photos of her in a natural state look better than the natural one shown here.

Uhhhh, what’s with the negative comments? We all look better with makeup. Kudos to her for being brave enough to go natural and give her skin a break. You can still see her beauty in her eyes.

ok!! well, what a difference. i have always thought natural is better but for her? some makeup would help. maybe just some foundation, blush, and a light eye shadow. that would be pretty. anything less than that is scary on her.

Nicole on

She looks like a boy in the “natural” picture

Let’s face it, unless you were born with natural
beauty, glam is always better. Few people I’ve see
look good natural, Anjoli Pitt for one.
