KDE apps apeears worse under GNOME

I'm using Fedora 11 Gnome, and I have installed Amarok, a KDE app.
Amarok windows appears in an old fasion, such as "Windows 95" appearence.
Is there a way to make KDE apps appear as same as the Gnome apps ?

Here is a screenshot of the situation.
Left is RythemBox (Gnome) and right is Amarok (KDE).

Someone please help me on this matter.

If you use KDE 3 start Kcontrol and change the appearance there, for KDE 4 it is similar, but I don't know how to access the preference dialogs from within Gnome ...

For kde 4 it's "systemsettings". You might also want to install one or more kde styles, unless you like the default ones. I suggest qtcurve because it has native gtk+2, qt3 and qt4 engines, making all your applications look exactly the same regardless of the toolkit they use.
