See Susan Boyle’s Amazing Harper’s Bazaar Makeover

Susan Boyle debuts another new look in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar (on stands Aug. 18).

In glam photos, the Britain's Got Talent runner-up dons Michelle Obama's favorite designers: Michael Kors and J.Crew. The comely Scotland native — who lives with just her cat, Pebbles — also wears pricey, studded Giuseppe Zanotti pumps.

In the interview, she opens up about how her life has changed since becoming a YouTube sensation for her rendition Les Miserables' "Dreamed a Dream." "YouTube? What's that? A tube of candy? I don't think so!" she jokes. "That was a shock. The YouTube thing was like a demolition ball.

"It was just overwhelming — to find TV stations camped outside your door and the phone ringing 24 hours a day," continues the singer, who briefly checked into a clinic in London after losing the show. "It was good. But overwhelming. It was too big for anyone to handle."

This isn't her first makeover: Boyle first debuted a darker dye job in April.

"Maybe I'll consider a makeover later on," she said a few days before showing off her new look. "For now I'm happy the way I am — short and plump. I would not go in for Botox or anything like that. I'm content with the way I look. What's wrong with looking like Susan Boyle? What's the matter with that?"
