Susan Boyle Gets Another Makeover

Susan Boyle may have gotten a (subtle) hair-color update a few months back, but that’s nothing compared to the number Harper’s Bazaar has done on her. The Britain’s Got Talent runner-up channeled Michelle Obama in a photo shoot for the September issue of the magazine, which hit newsstands today, donning the first lady’s designer favorites J. Crew and Michael Kors alongside pricier gowns and shoes. The result? An elegant editorial spread shot outside London, and a poised yet candid Boyle, whose break from the media madness has clearly come as a relief. “It was good,” Boyle told Bazaar of her time in the headlines, which sent her briefly into a clinic following a meltdown. “But overwhelming. It was too big for anyone to handle.” As for the appearance overhaul—one that would surely garner the What Not To Wear seal of approval—Boyle said she’s not too concerned with further improvements. “For now I'm happy the way I am—short and plump,” she said. “I would not go in for Botox or anything like that. I'm content with the way I look. What's wrong with looking like Susan Boyle? What's the matter with that?”
