We could NOT have been happier when we discovered Lucky magazine was coming out with its first-ever music issue this August (I mean, fashion + music = haiiiii), but when we realized Kelly Clarkson was the cover girl, our minds basically exploded. No one truly encompasses that all-American look like Kelly does, so of course she went for a jeans and T-shirt ensemble for her cover debut. She wore a coated tweed Rachel Comey coral jacket with a burgundy scoop neck Michael Stars top, a brown Lucky belt, Diesel jeans and tons of beaded jewelry.This is an outfit Kelly would TOTALLY wear IRL, and we love that! She even said in her Lucky interview, “In Texas, we practically come out of the womb in jeans.” Now THAT’S commitment. #denimdiapers

But Ms. Clarkson does have an affinity for some more fashion-forward things like bandage dresses, which she says are “like built-in Spanx.” Smart girl! She also is “obsessed” with YSL lip glosses and has them in every color. Her typical beauty routine is (not surprisingly) quite simple—she blow dries her hair, puts on mascara and lip gloss, and she’s “ready to go.” Um, JEALOUS. But when it comes to some beauty trends, Kelly can’t always get on board. See: Extra long finger nails. “They’re so Edward Scissorhands.” Welp, looks like someone won’t be sporting stiletto tips any time soon! (But, psst, what about nail art? That can TOTES be worn on short tips! We’re here to guide you into the world of nails, Kel. Just take our hand.) For the full interview and more pics from her cover spread, be sure to check out!
