Kelly Clarkson Stuns While Hosting 2023 NFL Honors
Kelly Clarkson celebrated her love of the Dallas Cowboys as she became the first woman to ever host the NFL Honors show
The Voice host, 40, dazzled in a Dallas Cowboys-inspired dress at the NFL Honors award show Thursday to signify her love for her hometown team (Clarkson was born in Fort Worth, Tx., which is just 33 miles outside of Dallas.)
The “Since You’ve Been Gone” singer took the stage to host the awards sporting a dark navy blue and white 88 jersey, which is a famous number in Cowboys history, per ESPN, having belonged to great wide receivers like Drew Pearson, Michael Irvin and Dez Bryant. It’s currently also being worn on the field by CeeDee Lamb.
Clarkson’s top flowed into a black and white striped skirt featuring the jersey numbers and last names of current Cowboys players including running back Ezekiel Elliott, quarterback Dak Prescott and defensive end Demarcus Lawrence, alongside several others.
The head-turning gown also featured white and navy blue star motifs down the skirt and on Clarkson’s arms to represent the Cowboys, along with the classic NFL logo. Clarkson opted to accessorize her NFL look with simple hoop earrings and straightened hair.
Sharing the gown on Twitter, Clarkson wrote, “Thank you so much @NFL honors! I had such a good time hosting tonight. See you at the Super Bowl!”
She was even able to get in a couple of snaps with Prescott and Dallas Cowboy alum Emmitt Smith backstage, giving them a special shoutout on social media. In one photo, she and Prescott, wearing a shiny lime green suit, smile up at the camera, while in the other, she excitedly points to Smith, who grins back wearing a simple black and white suit and tie.
