Katharine McPhee first sparked attention when she nearly won the title of American Idol, in its fifth season. Her smooth voice landed her second best as runner up, but that didn't conclude her fifteen minutes of fame. With a new TV series and some seriously sophisticated style the singer-turned-actress has come a long way.

With girl next-door charm, McPhee started off as a meek, bright-eyed young adult eager to catch her big break. Naturally, her fashion sense was a direct reflection of her inexperience in Hollywood—somewhat lacking sophistication.

Her style has since matured—her signature look channels sweet simplicity with polished panache. She has taken her youthful, flirty look to a new level and is hitting a high note with her recent fashion choices.

As star of the new hit TV series Smash, (a look behind-the-scenes of Broadway musicals) she has been catapulted into Glee-level fame.

GQ's March cover girl is a natural beauty. She keeps her accessories and makeup simple but has been known to experiment with hair colour and a multitude of cuts. She lets her wardrobe and natural good looks speak for themselves.
