Kelly Clarkson's Dallas Cowboys dress at the NFL Honors' 2023 ceremony absolutely won the night. Forget any of the players competing in the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 12. This dress is the winner.

Clarkson hosted the NFL Honors on February 9 and arrived in style (i.e. a lavish, Dallas Cowboys-themed ballgown with a train). Her navy blue satin skirt was decorated with white striped patterns, and she sported a jersey long-sleeved top with the number 88 in the center. She fittingly had names of players sewn into the skirt.

Clarkson also rocked her honey blonde locks in a pin-straight hairdo that was swept to the side, accented with dark fluttery lashes and some subtle lip gloss.

In the first snapshot Clarkson posted of the look, she's seen proudly posing towards the camera with her hands on her hips. In the second photo, her crew stands around her, while one person adjusts her massive skirt. And in the third, she stands in front of a large crowd with blue and purple lighting, while the camera faces behind her.

“Thank you so much @NFL honors! I had such a good time hosting tonight. See you at the Super Bowl!” she captioned the post, tagging her stylist, hair, makeup, and photography team. See the full dress here

In other good news, Clarkson is soon returning to Season 23 of The Voice. She took a brief hiatus for Season 22, but we can’t wait to see her back in action. So far, she has taken home four wins: Bryn Cartelli (Season 14), Chevel Sheperd (Season 15), Jake Hoot (Season 17), and Girl Named Tom (Season 21).

“I am so excited to be back with my Voice family!” Clarkson said in a statement. “Let’s do this, Team Kelly!”

"It feels really good to be back on The Voice. I didn't know I would miss it this much. I loved getting a team together. It's very inspiring. I missed it!" Clarkson also said in an interview with NBC Insider.


Clarkson is known for her playful rivalry with fellow Coach Blake Shelton on The Voice. And although he announced that Season 23 will be his last, that doesn’t mean she’s going down without a fight.

"Will I go any easier on Blake knowing it's his last season? Do you know me at all? No!" Clarkson said in an interview with NBC Insider. "Do I hope secretly that he wins his last season? Maybe. But am I going to let him have it? No! I'm going to work for my Artists, and I hope they win!"
