We’re used to seeing TV host Wendy Williams with full makeup and big hair, but the larger than life personality decided to to take it all off for a special ‘make-under’ photo shoot for XOJane.com.

The 47-year-old talk show host appears on the website with tousled locks and virtually no makeup, wearing just a comfy lived-in grey sweater. Williams told the site’s editors:

“My idea of made under is different than yours. ‘[I feel most beautiful] when I get out of the shower – I like what I see. I think that clothing complicates my body. Even in the most beautiful outfit I feel like, I have on too many clothes.”

The daytime diva also revealed why that she loves to wear large wigs, because big hair “offsets my big body.”

Gotta love a woman who’s not afraid to go bare-faced!
