Macy Gray's Big New Makeover

03/27/2007 at 10:30 AM ET

At times, R&B singer Macy Gray unique, craggy voice is overshadowed by her, uh, unique fashion sense. Remember when she wore a dress to the VMAs emblazoned with the release date of her album? On her best days, there was still that poof of hair and crazy, fur and feather-accented coats. Well, Macy is ready to put those wacky duds to the side and debut a new sleeker look to complement her winning new album, Big, out today, which features guest work by Justin Timberlake, Fergie and will.i.am (of the Black Eyed Peas). Gray recently told Entertainment Weekly, “It was like, enough already with the Afro, so I cut it all off.” The singer also raved about her love of gowns — and promised to step things up a notch in the glamour department. Fingers crossed that she’s serious!

i am a fan of Macy but girlfriend what happen to your outfit, i can’t see your eyes! i love suits but there’s a certain way to wear them and that’s not one of them. Common Macy???

Tatiana on

can she see anything? i do certainly hope she isnt going to be doing alot of driving :-) crossing the street could become a very dangerous task as well.

This woman was in desperate need of a makeover. The old and new hair both suited her. Although I don’t know how anyone can stand to wear their hair in their eyes. The clothes she used to wear were so tacky! This outfit is actually cute on her.

I am sorry I hate being brutally honest, but you call this a make-over? Okay she got rid of the afro. It still doesn’t make her look good.

I guess Macy and I had the same idea ” enough with the fro” I also heard her style is a little more R and B this time around, I think that is refreshing. Thank goodness she’s not a one trick pony.

OK, this one looks like crap too. Don’t celebs have stylists?

Ashley on

She reminds me of Melinda Doolittle in the face a little.

I think she’s pretty cool (with good or bad styles choices), she’s a talented singer and actor and keeps a nice low profile too! I was throughly impressed by her small role performance in “Shadowboxer” with Cuba Gooding Jr. She was terrific!

Go Macy!! She is on the right track. I love stars that look a little different. She seems like a beautiful person on the inside.

enigma on

opps! my spelling/grammar error…I meant thoroughly….
excuse me…laters!!!

j on

‘makeover’ ?! gross.

KT from Cda on

Just awful!

t williams on

Love it. Love it.

Wouldn’t work for most but if you know her then you know it works for her.

Jen on

Ummm. Ewwwww. Not I good look…if you ask me.

jen stone on

She needs a decent stylist VERY badly. Just b/c she is no longer dressing like a wacko, it doesn’t mean she looks good now either.

She’s getting on the right track. I like that she got rid of the afro and is doing something different, but I don’t like this haircut. The hair is too much in her eyes. I’m not a fan of the suit neither. I love suits and the professionalism of them, but I don’t like this suit on her. I would love to see her soften her look up more, and I hope she keeps her promise on dresses. Anyway, she could have softened the suit look a little more. Get rid of the tie, and get a different style of jacket. This looks too much like a lawyer man’s suit. The shoes look ok though.

I like the color and cut of her hair but the suit looks ugly on her. She should ask Britney to let her borrow the hat to cover her face of shame.
