She famously said she doesn't care about her weight, and just eats what she wants.
But it appears newly-thirtysomething singer Kelly Clarkson is cutting a slimmer figure these days.
The original American Idol winner, who turned 30 a few weeks ago, looked more confident with her body than ever as she arrived at the Entertainment Weekly and ABC-TV Up Front party in New York last night.

Clarkson's yo-yoing weight has attracted a lot of media attention over the past few years, but the star has always tried to ignore it.
She said in a 2009 interview with Self magazine: 'When people talk about my weight, I'm like, “You seem to have a problem with it; I don't. I'm fine!”
'I'm never trying to lose weight – or gain it. I'm just being.'

She also criticised her record label for 'Photoshopping the c**p out of me' on her All I Ever Wanted album cover.
Meanwhile, also showing off her slimmer figure was former Charmed actress Alyssa Milano,
The 39-year-old has regained her trim figure after giving birth to her son Milo nine months ago.

She completed her look with a black top and wore her hair in an updo.
Alyssa – who welcomed son Milo with her CAA agent husband David Bugliari back in August – revealed last year how she was struggling to lose the last 15lbs of baby weight.
She shared the news with her fans on Twitter, writing: 'Working out while @dbugliari is out with Milo on a walk! 15 pounds of baby weight left to lose. #WontComeOff.'

However, five months after the Twitter post, Milano appears to be winning the battle of the bulge.
She was joined by a host of other stars at the glitzy event last night, including former Desperate Housewives star Vanessa Williams, Ginnifer Goodwin and Krysten Ritter.
Heroes starlet Hayden Panettiere was also in attendance and looked sexy in a red devil dress.
