Kelly Clarkson: Fabulous Even Without Makeup! (PHOTOS)

As we anxiously await the October 24 release of Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger, we’ve found ourselves looking for any reason to talk about the Texas-born pop star. Sure, these may look like just a few adorable shots of the “Mr. Know It All” songbird looking super cute without even a lick of makeup as she heads into her New York City hotel — but we can’t help ourselves. We want more Kelly! If you’ve got KC Fever too, check out the fresh-faced iHeartRadio Festival performer and try to contain your jealousy that some lucky people don’t need blush to glow for the cameras.
