Kelly Osbourne used to be the punk princess.
We all remember the pink hair, heavy make-up and lots and lots of black (this princess was, after all, the daughter of the Prince of Darkness).
I was in middle school (ed note from Abby: I just fell off my chair while reading that phrase from my lovely intern. Holy crap am I old!) when she covered Madonna’s Papa Don’t Preach and am not ashamed to say that I danced to it in friends’ rooms and at school dances.
We liked that she wasn’t some twiglet and embraced her and all her many quirks, both style and otherwise.
Things sort of spiraled out of control for the singer and you could tell just by looking at her that life had gotten a bit, um, messy. But all seems to be well in Kelly’s world now and she has stepped out with a matured sense of style.
The singer has started to favor a classy retro look, and we love her new cropped blonde locks.
It’s been a gradual and quiet transformation, and what really reminded us of how far she’s come—and how good she looks now—are these photos from Tarina Tarantino’s look-book that Nylon posted. The photos are total eye-candy and feature Kelly as Glinda the Good Witch—all girly and pearly, but still with her signature extra kick.
Long live the Good Witch!
