Katharine McPhee: Better Glam or Natural?

01/22/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

After getting the scoop from her hair and makeup artist, we love seeing Katharine McPhee get glammed up for the red carpet. She looked perfectly polished at the Golden Globe after parties on Monday night. Then, for a Wednesday lunch, we spotted Katharine looking very natural with minimal makeup, straight hair and dark-rimmed glasses. The former Idol seems to be one of those lucky girls who looks pretty good either way. Tell us: Which way do you like Katharine? Glam or natural?

For the latest on the new season of Idol see our American Idol 2007 blog.

She makes up well, considering her very broad nose and extraordinarily long chin and smallish eyes. Good cheekbones though.

Looks like every other person in hollywood with makeup covering her imperfections. Worst idol runner up yet.

Huge nose??Her nose is just fine. She’s beautiful no matter how much make up she has. She’s hot.
That’s all I’m gonna say.

suzanne on

She has huge cheeks!!

She looks gorgeous either way. A rare natural beauty.

She looks better without makeup than most women do with. I guess a few of the respondents here are very jealous of all that natural beauty? And then on top of that she has a beautiful soul and personality and she is also very smart and very funny. And the girl can sing and act too! Katharine is going to be hugely successfull in anything she does, unlike kate, lillie, j-dub, staci and krystal who are no doubt slovenly and plain and without charm or talent. And still haven’t got over the fact that Katharine beat out their idols and is now going to beat them again on the sales charts. You bitter, jealous hags, who cares what you think?

Katherine is beautiful either way, although she looks a bit more polished with make-up. Her hair is gorgeous and shiny!

It’s amazing what make-up can do! She’s looks just like all of us. I used to think she was ridiculously beautiful, but then I saw her in a few interviews, and her fake personality turned me right off. I found her to be aloof and conceited eventhough she kept trying to sound grounded. She talks about her body issues all the time, and goes on about how self concious she is, yet I saw her on a cover of a mag in her bikini. What the? Plus, all of her ‘red carpet’ dresses have nothing to them! Sorry, but if I had incurities about my bod, I wouldn’t be wearing mini skirts with tops that dip down to my belly button!

I agree with Simon-her hair and skin are perfect!

Hey “Simon”, Why is it that you have to be jealous of someone if you think their ugly? I think she looks just like an average person without makeup. Shes stuck up and annoying. She said she didn’t want to use her bulimia to win american idol but i guess she thinks its fine to use it to get famous. Funny, isn’t it?
