Y’all…we are not okay. Kelly Clarkson attended the 2020 Hollywood Beauty Awards at The Taglyan Complex in Los Angeles this February, and wore a neck-to-toe latex outfit. We’re completely speechless—but not so much that we can’t tell you all about it.

The OG American Idol winner lost 37 pounds recently and, rightfully so, used this appearance to show off her stellar hourglass physique.

The dress itself is an Alex Perry creation and features pointy squared shoulders and a midi length, which she paired with square-toe latex booties and black tights to complete the ensemble. To tailor her beauty to the ‘fit, she rocked a sky-high messy bun with face-framing strands, a shimmery champagne lid, kohl eyeliner, and a bold red lip. And let’s not forget her bling. The 37-year-old talk show host wore large, bedazzled gold hoops for a little extra shimmer and shine.

While Kelly is a beauty in her own right, she was actually attending the 6th annual awards on behalf of friend and stylist Candice Lambert, who wasn’t able to attend due to a family emergency. After learning of her fashion fairy godmother’s situation, Kelly rushed to the show to accept The Jany Temime Styling Award on Lambert’s behalf. Despite being a celebrity accustomed to the spotlight, Kelly shed a tear while delivering her speech.

"I'm so nervous to mess this up," she said. "I always do this, I always cry… Oh Lord, I'm ruining it… I'm really glad I ran from work and got here within 30 minutes to do this for her because she's super special and I didn't want this moment to pass and y'all not to know how unbelievably talented she is and the fact that she chose to go to her family instead of enjoy this moment for herself."

The night benefitted the Helen Woodward Animal Center, a non-profit organization that provides therapy pets for people and adoption for homeless animals, and Kelly wasn’t the only A-lister to attend—Selena Gomex was also there. The “Lose You to Love Me” singer also rocked a face-framing bun hairdo, though she paired it with an off-the-shoulder cream cape mini dress and metallic Aquazzura platform heels.
