You know how a new haircut can inspire you to overhaul your entire look? I’m thinking that’s what happened with Jennifer Hudson and her sassy, spiky pixie cut. She’s always been drop dead gorgeous — no matter her size or hairstyle — but once she lopped off her long hair, her outfits got a little more edgy and exciting, too. Jennifer can definitely pull of high-fashion looks on the red carpet, but her street style seamlessly blends classic menswear with fierce, feminine pieces (hello, sky-high stiletto booties!). The J.Hud twist? She almost always throws in something sporty — a satin varsity jacket, drapey jersey tank top, etc, and she loves to play with a color palette of gray and black.

I didn’t even know I was looking for the ideal sexy-yet-comfortable fall outfit, but thanks to Jennifer Hudson, I just found it. Her body-con midi dress in a deep burgundy shade (I’m still boycotting the word “oxblood,” sorry) paired with coordinating lipstick and streamlined black accessories is perfection. Want to steal her style for yourself? (Don’t mind if I do!) Read on for all the shopping details… Keep reading »
I’m pretty obsessed with the way Jennifer Hudson styled her badass leather motorcycle jacket. Paired with red lips, lavender nail polish, a casual black t-shirt and maxi skirt, it’s dripping with fabulousness; the perfect combination of edgy and classic. Want to steal her style for yourself this fall? I tracked down similar faux leather jackets in petite, regular, and plus size. The best part? They’re all 100 bucks or less.

New York Fashion Week has begun, and while we’re still waiting for the big name shows that draw legions of designer-clad starlets, the first celeb sightings are starting to trickle in. Click through to check out some photos from the front row, including Heidi Klum’s plunging neckline, Hailee Steinfeld’s gorgeous green lace dress, and proof that Cory Kennedy still exists (and stay tuned for more front row pics next week!)…
As pleased as I am to see Jennifer Hudson taking some new fashion risks (for awhile there it seemed like her entire wardrobe consisted of bandage dresses and workout pants), she missed the mark with this outfit. Between the long graphic tank, the longer jersey skirt, studded loafers, layered necklaces, cardigan, and fedora, there’s just waaaayyy too much going on. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
At tonight’s Grammy Awards, Jennifer Hudson was tasked with singing “I Will Always Love You” in tribute to Whitney Houston, who passed away yesterday at the age of 48. It was emotional and flawless, the perfect, if brief, memoriam. Watch it above.
It’s hard to imagine “Precious” without then-unknown Gabourey Sidibe. But Jennifer Hudson was riding high after “Dreamgirls” and said she turned down the role because she didn’t want to gain weight. “I had [gained weight] with Effie and as much as I was moved by this film, I wanted to try a role that had nothing whatsoever to do with my weight,” Jennifer explained, ever the Weight Watchers spokeswoman.

I’m intrigued by the idea of someone else playing such a now-iconic character. This got me thinking … are there other stars who just missed being cast in big roles? The answer is a resounding YES. Keep clicking for 23 more intriguing examples.
Jennifer Hudson duets on “I Believe In You & Me” with her larger self — the self that competed on “American Idol,” the self that starred in “Dreamgirls” — in a Weight Watchers commercial that I have to admit is kinda touching. (And that’s not usually something I would say about a Weight Watchers commercial.) The “new” Jennifer is much more polished; yes, she is slimmer but her movements less theatrical, her outfit is more chic and her hair is straightened. In short, she’s conforming to a more mainstream version of beauty — some might even say a white standard of beauty. I’m happy if she’s happy (and, perhaps, healthier, although we know people are created in all shapes and sizes and can be healthier at a larger body weight). I just thought the “old” Jennifer — who made it in Hollywood on her considerable talent despite being larger than the average starlet — was cute, too. [Essence] Keep reading »
