Kelly Clarkson Body Evolution
As a famous singer, it is inevitable for her to receive backlash and criticisms. It isn’t always just about the happy façade and the shining spotlight; Kelly Clarkson’s career is a roller coaster ride as her fans adore her for who she is and her bashers see everything about her as wrong so let's see how our favorite artist is doing!
STRONGER THAN EVER
What doesn’t kill you truly makes you stronger after all! Kelly’s third song to top the Billboard Hot 100 did not lie. It seems like the lyrics of the song reflected her life and her journey as an artist all along. She has encountered so many stabs, and even though it hurt her, it didn’t bring her down and she continues to rise even stronger than before.
EMBRACING THE FLAWS
The “Stronger” singer is recently and continually advocating for body positivity. In an interview, she explained that sometimes there are things that happen in life which may bum you out but then those are the things that made you be who you are.
The singer who won American Idol 18 years ago claims that she is now a very strong and confident individual. She admitted to in June 2020 that she was at her heaviest point when she joined the NBC Series. However, she said that she has accepted all the flaws and imperfections of her body and she views them as positives.
THE VOICE’S OUTFIT INSPO
Candice is still the stylist of Clarkson even in her appearances on the television. In her interviews, she said that she is thankful that Kelly is open and just wants to have fun with fashion. According to her stylist, the star loves to explore different styles and brands and she wants to try something new each time.
When Lambert was asked about the star’s next outfits, she said that they usually do a lot of pinks for the Ugly Doll’s events and as for The Voice, Kelly dresses up however she feels that day. It’s good that the pop star seems to have diverse and interesting choices when it comes to fashion.
HER FASHION STEALS AWARD SHOW’S SPOTLIGHT
Even though there were many notable moments at the 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards, Kelly’s red carpet look and change of outfits which continued to become better and better seems to have stolen the spotlights as people continued to talk about it.
The singer walked on the red carpet wearing her favorite color, black, and according to Lambert, it’s a dress which “has lace, it’s a little rock 'n' roll, a little country, a little pop, strong, and sexy.” For her performances, she wore a sequined, furry, and blue dress during her duet with Jason Aldean, and a black, mini Dolce & Gabbana dress for her song with Dan + Shay.
ANTICIPATING HER HOSTING GIG’S LOOK
In May 2018, as she was about to host the Billboard Music Awards live from Las Vegas which is her first hosting gig, people are anticipating the style she’ll wear as they remember her outfits on her debut. Her style has drastically changed through the years and she has left behind the denim and flipflops for chic leather skirts and luxury styles from Valentino, Versace, Tom Ford, and Gucci.
In her interview with USA Today days before the Music Awards, she promised to come out as a fashion force and that she will have multiple outfit changes. Since she won’t be always performing on that day, she said that she can do stuff that’s uncomfortable.
FED UP WITH PREJUDICED DESIGNERS
Nowadays, it is Candice Lambert, her stylist who is worthy of the credit for Clarkson’s outfits. Even though Lambert has no pains in dressing up The Voice judge, she admits that it’s not always easy and that she is fed up with designers who tells her that they won’t dress averaged sized girls and bigger.
Candice said that it is frustrating that there are designers who don’t want to dress all-sized women and all ethnicities. She added that things are shallow in the fashion industry which is gross and shameful. Clarkson’s stylist cannot grasp the logic of designers when they say that some artists can wear their clothes and others can’t.
SKINNY IS NOT NECESSARILY HEALTHY
In her interview in the later months of 2018, the GRAMMY awardee pointed out and reiterated that she doesn’t equate being skinny with being healthy. For her, when she is putting on weight, it represents her happiness in her emotional world. She added that it’s when she is not doing well that she goes skinny.
HER SECRET IN LOSING POUNDS
In 2018, Clarkson showed up with a slimmer figure. On the Today show, she shared that she lost thirty-seven pounds after she changed her diet and only ate non-GMOm no pesticide, and only really organic food. Well, she just looks amazing!
RED CARPET LOOKS: BETTER AND BETTER
In 2005, five years after she was released in the world of show business, the star took the punk and rocker look as she dressed in a sheer bondage black dress with a leather glove at the red carpet of Allure Magazine’s Beauty live. In the same year, she wore a golden Vintage couture collection gown at the MTV VMAs.
At the Pre-GRAMMY Awards party in 2006, Clarkson kept on shining as she carried herself in a shining gold dress with minimal red details. She accepted the Best Female Pop Vocal Performance award for “Since U Been Gone” at the 48th annual GRAMMY in a strapless gown made by Max Azria Atelier which showed all of her curves perfectly.
DRAGGED DOWN YET DRESSES UP
In her earlier days in the biz, criticism and scornful comments didn’t phase her and she didn’t let them drag her down either. Her pop diva status today was predicted by her black backless gown as it shows that the singer who’s going to shine and sparkle is on the making.
She doesn’t stick on just one style alone though. On the “Since U Been Gone” era, she took the stage vehemently while wearing a Rolling Stones shirt, studded belt, and a black skinny jean. Not to mention the piercing on her belly button and her going blonde!
CROWDS AND CRITICISMS
Fans flocked and there are big crowds who supported her concerts after Clarkson beat out Justin Guarini in American Idol. Unfortunately, fame doesn’t mean glamour alone. It also brings bashers. After she catapulted into fame in 2002, the criticisms from the public also grew louder as they pointed out her weight.
Even Kelly herself admitted that she was the biggest girl in American Idol and she wasn’t even that plus-sized that time. Not minding her own self, she says in her interview with Ellen DeGeneres that what makes her sad is that she usually meets girls who are bigger than her and they’ll always say that if she’s called big, it means that they look so fat to other people.
DENIM MAKES A COMEBACK
It seems like the popstar can’t just get let Denim go so soon as she continually wore them to important events such as the NBA All-Star Game. Even some eyebrows were raised as she wears a fold-over crotch denim skirt over her zig-zag patterned swimsuit as she was taping for MTV’s Spring Break in March 2003.
It was a surprise when Kelly dropped the baggy looks as she wears a dress fitting for a Disney princess when she attended the premiere of “Princess Diaries 2” in August 2004. However, the Denim reappeared once again at the announcement of nominations for the 32nd Annual American Music Award in September of the same year.
INNOCENT LOOK FOR A RISING STAR
After winning the first season of American Idol in 2002, she went to the Teen Choice Award on August 4 of the same year with an innocent look. As she is new to the red-carpet, she simply walked down the aisle wearing a white Tee with an American flag design on the front and knee-length denim completed her look.
Her love for denim was continually flaunted by her on the 19th of August, still on the same year, as she arrived at the premiere of “Swimfan” wearing a tube dress and a pair of denim pants! It seems like at this moment, the Idol Champion is trying to advance her fashion style.
20 years after her rise to stardom, Clarkson’s name continues to boom on the speakers under millions of roofs worldwide. As she battles the criticisms of the crowd which shames her body, she continues to speak out not just for herself but for other women also that the size and weight of the body don’t measure your value.
