With every new gig comes a new look! Megyn Kelly got a pretty big (but subtle at the same time) makeover to star on her new NBC show Megyn Kelly Today. And we're not just talking her hair and makeup — it's even stemmed down to her body language and wardrobe!
Things were different for Megyn back when she was an anchor sitting behind a desk. Now that she's mostly standing and sitting in a chair with her hands exposed, her gestures have changed a lot. "Her movements and how she talks seem very unnatural," body language expert Blanca Cobb told In Touch. In a review of the talk show, The Washington Post even said she "moved stiffly and waved her arms around in broad gestures in a bizarre attempt to generate excitement from [the] audience." Awkward...
And now that she's on the air at 9 a.m. instead of 9 p.m., the 46-year-old switched up her beauty routine as well. Celebrity makeup artist Shalini Vadhera says Megyn looks "less glam than before." She added, "She’s shifted from the glossy lips and shimmery makeup and dramatic eyes to a more monochromatic, natural look." Remember Megyn's slick back? That's a thing of the past, too. "It was a tough, hard-edged look," Vadhera added of Megyn, who's switched to flowing waves. "She has a much more fun girlfriend vibe."
As far as her wardrobe, Megyn has taken it down a few notches since Fox News — and is now totally conservative! "The hemlines are longer, the cleavage is covered," fashion stylist and blogger Melanie Pace said. "Megyn’s appearance has changed, most likely in an effort to please the masses."

Despite her efforts to change up her appearance, the show is still getting a lot of negative reviews from viewers (especially after a few super-awkward celebrity interviews). A source previously told In Touch, "Megyn hasn’t been able to book any big-name stars that haven’t been on Today during the first two hours. Hollywood hasn't exactly put the welcome mat out for her. Megyn has left a lot of people cold." Hopefully Megyn has an idea up her sleeve to save her show!
