Yikes! Stripes!

Katharine McPhee earns her cover girl stripes on the February issue of Lucky magazine.

As much as we love us some McPhee, we wish they left out a stripe or 10. It's just way too much!

The rest of the spread, which included looks from Valentino, Alberta Ferretti and Nanette Lepore, wasn't a huge improvement, but still would have made a better cover.

But don't let this cover fool you. Katharine's all about style! The Smash actress opened up to the mag about her style transformation over the years and her general love of fashion.

Here are some HIGHlights:

On wearing heels:
"In L.A. no one wears heels because they drive, but here in New York I get to wear heels. It’s great!"

On loving fashion:
"Actually, I’ve always loved fashion; I salivated over fashion magazines. Growing up, I learned from my best friend, who really knew clothes, that to look really great with no money took time, and I didn’t have time. I was singing."

On her American Idol style:

"But I loved clothes. On Idol, I was very strategic with my look. I specifically wore very little makeup, did very little with my hair. I wore beat-up jeans and a simple jacket and I covered my body up because I knew that viewers like seeing transformation. As a viewer myself, it was one of those things I looked forward to. It’s like when people watch Dancing With the Stars: They love to see the stars lose weight and start to feel confident. So I wanted to create that story—actually to push the story that I had no idea about fashion—which was not actually true."

On wearing clothes given to her:
"Now I look back [at paparazzi photos] and I will be like, Where did I get those pants that I was wearing? Oh, right, they were sent to me by some PR company, and you think because they’re free, they’re awesome, but then you look back at the photos and you look horrible in them. I’m like, God, what was I thinking?"

It just goes to show that owning a mirror can go a long way!

We’re glad that Katharine has finally landed a big gig where she can showcase her pipes and that it lets her express her passion for fashion more than before.
