Julianne Hough is the cover girl for the annual InStyle Makeover issue! And if this triple threat dancer-actress-singer seems like the girl who can do everything, it’s because she is—and she’s down to earth to boot. “When I put on makeup, I’m always reminding myself that less is more,” she told us. “There is Playboy hot, and there is granola hot. Right now? I feel like I am in between.” That’s because she underwent a make-under for her makeover—gradually moving away from her glammed out days of Dancing With the Stars to fresh-faced star of Footloose and Rock of Ages. “I always had extensions and a fake tan,” she said. “It was an adjustment when I stopped wearing so much stage makeup. I kept thinking, I am so pale! I need my fake tan! Now!” Find out more about Hough—including how she is “very much in love” with boyfriend Ryan Seacrest and is a big wine lover—by picking up the new InStyle Makeover issue, on newsstands Friday, September 14th.
