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?

She definately looks better with makeup.

She totally looks better glammed up. The natural look just isn’t working for her there she looks sick.

As much as I hate saying people need make-up to look pretty.. This “natural” picture is awful! Kelly has a very chubby face.. She should have a nose job… And darling, do something about those dark circles… You can afford that!

I think that Kelly looks cute with her natural look, but she looks gorgeous with her highlights and make-up.

ewwwwwwwwww she looks like a man w/o makeup

Yea, she looks better in the glam makeup, but I love the fact that she’s strong enough to go out in public with no make up on and have her picture taken. Loving yourself no matter how you look makes her the star that she is!

i think her hair is a little too dark in the more recent pic. she KILLED it on the cmt giants program, her duet w/martina mcbride gave me the chills. i’m not a fan of country music really, but i came across this and she rocked it. amazing voice. cool girl who seems to be keeping it real.

Kelly is beautiful no matter what. It is ok to have an off day, that is what keeps her real. I can not wait till she comes out with a new album!

She obviously looks way better GLAM, but in all honesty who doesnt!
Most of us need those little touch ups that MAC, Bobbi Brown and Proactive provide.
