Kelly Clarkson wore a red power suit with a statement T-shirt tucked in while on her daytime talk show on Wednesday.
She looked slender in the matching vibrant blazer with the sleeves pushed up and wide-legged slacks as she added black platform heels.
The songbird also had on two gold necklaces and hoop earrings as she wore her dirty blonde hair down in soft waves with wispy bangs.
The Texas native has lost a dramatic amount of weight this fall after finally moving on from a messy divorce from Brandon Blackstock, with whom she has two children.
The 41-year-old American Idol veteran had Taika Waititi, John O’Hurley and author Jason Reynolds on her Wednesday show.

Waititi dished on his wife Rita Ora’s idea to dress up in full ogre costumes while visiting the Shrek Airbnb in Scotland.
And he shared a video of them cosplaying as Shrek and Fiona.
Waititi then chatted up his new movie Next Goal Wins, which follows the underdog story of the American Samoa soccer team, who suffered the biggest loss ever in an international football game.
Taika opened up about his mission of showing indigenous people on screen, and tackling diversity without tokenism.
The director also teased his new Star Wars movie, and shared how he incorporates music into all of his movie sets.
During a conversation about John O’Hurley first joining The National Dog Show, Taika was dragged off-stage by one of John’s furry companions.
O’Hurley then said a dog peed on him during the National Dog Show. ‘It’s kind of self-disqualifying, unfortunately…’ he said. He has hosted The National Dog Show for 22 years.
Clarkson then performed Down To You from her new album Chemistry on Kellyoke.

The star has slimmed down after making ‘better life choices’ in the wake of her messy divorce and brutal custody battle, DailyMail.com shared exclusively last week.
The slim-down fueled speculation that she had turned to surgery – or the new celebrity favorite, Ozempic – to shed the pounds.
Kelly has yet to publicly address her transformation, but a source has insisted that she will speak openly with fans if she has used Ozempic.
‘If she were to have taken Ozempic, or if she were to take it in the future, she would be the first person to share that with the world,’ they said.
‘She wouldn’t keep that a secret. She is very transparent and real, and that is the person she always has been. Kelly doesn’t BS anyone.’
Her divorce, relocating from Los Angeles to New York City, and wanting to be ‘healthier’ for her children – River Rose, nine, and Remington Alexander, seven – are all thought to be behind her decision to focus on her well-being.
‘She is now in New York, and the stresses of divorce and those who talked about the toxic work environment at her show have really taken all the toll they could, and now her well-being and health are more of a focus for her and that improvement is now happening,’ the source continued.
‘She is making better life decisions and making decisions that are right for her and her family.
According to a source close to Kelly (pictured left in March 2022), she likely had ‘a little nudge from somewhere’
‘Now that she is a single mom, she wants to be healthy for her kids and be around for a long time, so just like everything else, she has maintained her new life and her weight with a structure of doing things the old-fashioned way, through hard work.’
Kelly first flaunted her new figure on Instagram on Saturday as she prepared for an appearance on Jimmy Fallon.
Predictably, fans were quick to comment on the sizzling new snap, with many questioning if she had used Ozempic – a medication used to treat type 2 Diabetes but also has a weight loss side effect.
Celebrities including Sharon Osbourne, Tracy Morgan and Amy Schumer have all used Ozempic.
Kelly, who won the first season of American Idol in 2002, also showed off her slimmed down form while attending the We Can Survive concert in support of mental health awareness on October 14.

In 2020 she admitted that she felt ‘more pressure’ in the music industry when she was thin.
The Since U Been Gone singer said that she used to be shown naked magazine covers of women and told ‘this is what you’re competing with.’
‘I felt more pressure. It was more of magazines shoved in front of you and, ‘This is what you’re competing with and we’ve got to compete with it.’ I can’t compete with that. That’s not even my image. That’s not who I am. That’s who they are,’ she told Glamour UK.
Kelly and her ex, Brandon, were married for seven years before they split in 2020, setting off a protracted bout of legal squabbling over money.
The divorce dragged on for a year and a half before it was ultimately finalized in March of 2022. It led to a brutal custody fight between the exes, with Clarkson eventually securing primary custody.
Kelly released a bitter break-up album earlier this year called Chemistry that detailed the ‘good, the bad and the ugly’ of her relationship with Brandon.
She recently moved to New York City with their children for a ‘fresh start’ and will now host her self-titled talk show out of the Big Apple.
