Kelly Osborne, co-host of Fashion Police on E! and mega cool style maven, is in her prime and proud of it. All grown-up in a chic wardrobe, with a hot bod and daringly coiffed lavender hair – she’s come a long way since we first saw her as daddy Ozzy Osborne’s little punked out princess. Kelly graces the cover of Glamour Magazine for the January issue and indulges readers with a little Q&A too! Here are some FDM loves take-aways from the sit down with Miss O.
Glamour: You grew up in such a unique family. How did they impact your style?
Kelly Osbourne: Because [of them] I’ve seen the world and been exposed to all walks of life. It has a major impact on how I dress and who I am. I have this ability to really not care if people don’t like what I’m wearing.
G: In that vein, when did you start using your hair to express yourself?
KO: When I was 13, I had hair the color of gold down to my butt. I had an argument with my mom and yelled, “F–k you!” and chopped off half my hair. My dad could not look at me without pissing himself laughing.
G: Your mom’s not a fan of your new trademark lavender either, right?
KO: She wishes I would go back to blond. She’ll call me, really serious, and say, “I think it’s time for a change.” I’m like, “Mom, you have hair the color of a fire engine.”
G: What do you say to people who snipe about your own risky, fabulous hair?
KO: I dyed my hair shades of gray because I like it, and it pissed a lot of people off. Now I get tweeted 20 pictures a day of girls coloring their hair like mine. So if you don’t like it, sorry—you have housewife hair.

When it comes to fashion, Kelly is as much into dressing the part as she is getting involved with other aspects of the biz. In 2006 she became the campaign face for the chain Accessorize, later that year she catwalked for Heatherette, and in 2010, she modeled a Chris Benz dress for Naomi Campbell’s Fashion For Relief runway show. 2011 was a stellar year as she became a fashion correspondent for the cable network E!, presented the Miss USA pageant, and was signed to replace Taylor Momsen as the face of Madonna’s little girl Lourdes’ fashion line Material Girl. This past year Osbourne received the coveted “Ultimate style icon award” at the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards in London. Written by Sarah A. Freiseis. Photos: Peggy Sirota.
