Jennifer Hudson In Atelier Versace – 2011 Oscars

Too Much Bling Award
Jennifer Hudson looked gorgeous on the red carpet at the 2011 Oscars tonight.

She just gets better and better.

The actress/singer opted for a tangerine Atelier Versace Spring 2008 gown.

Her plunging halter gown had a dramatic structured detail on the hip and a dramatic train which glided behind her as she worked the red carpet.

I think she overloaded her look with too many jewels, but other than that this is a great look for her.

Purple Versace platform heels completed the look.

    dress and color look great on her, but I find the showing of her chest distracting and not a great view. love the color on her the most.

  4. Laura February 28, 2011 at 01:35 #

    I agree with you about the jewels. And one more thing. I wish the neckline was a v-neck and not so square. The color is beautiful on her. And her body is as slamming as always. She looks gorgeous. Versace and her are a great match.

    The hair was too stiff and the jewels were too many but I love the dress.

  6. HAUTESTUFF February 28, 2011 at 01:43 #

    gorgeous color and beautiful gown! but I too find the fit around her breast a bit off… and I really want a BAN on lacefronts!

    • Fashion Critic February 28, 2011 at 01:55 #

      I agree…I had to look past that

  7. jen February 28, 2011 at 01:45 #

    so much chest exposure makes it look trashy for me

  8. Ev February 28, 2011 at 01:47 #

    I think the fir around the bust is really bad. Plus she overdid it with all the jewelry.

    • Ev February 28, 2011 at 01:47 #

      I meant “the fit”.

  9. VB Lover February 28, 2011 at 01:47 #

    when I first saw Jennifer Hudson a few hours ago I just said “WOW!”. I think this might be the best she has ever looked!!! I was so taken with the dress that I didn’t notice the jewels, but I totally agree FC!

  10. PamG February 28, 2011 at 01:48 #

    She looks great in this dress. I think the jewels are fine for this event, and she has the stature to carry it off something dramatic.

  11. Ariel February 28, 2011 at 02:04 #

    The dress & color looks good on her. The fit at the bust isn’t the best though.

    • Marvel February 28, 2011 at 12:09 #

      I agree. The bust looks too awkward but I love the colour on her.

  12. Raquel February 28, 2011 at 02:15 #

    Ok, the twins are being smashed, smashed! But, ladies and gentlemen, this is infinitely better than that foil paper cape Andre Leon Talley forced on her years ago.

    • Fashion Critic February 28, 2011 at 02:21 #

      amen

      • Emi February 28, 2011 at 10:06 #

        Everything would be better, compared to that monstrous thing she was forced to wear by one of the supposed most capable men of the fashion business.

  13. Alicat February 28, 2011 at 02:18 #

    The gown in beautiful and she has been brave enough to opt for a striking colour. I really like the structuring and the way the fabric falls to the ground. That is what makes the ill-fitting, halter neckline all the stranger. It is unflattering and unfortunately draws your eyes to this area.

  14. fabiana February 28, 2011 at 02:22 #

    the fact that shes showing some parts of her breasts and those parts are a lighter skin color makes her look really tacky.

  15. Marlyn February 28, 2011 at 02:25 #

    I don’t like this dress at all. Not sure if it is the bust area or hair and make up but i’m not feeling.

  16. Katey February 28, 2011 at 02:26 #

    I think Her boobs are ugly in this dress. I don’t like it at all. For me She is/was the worst dressed of the Oscars 2011.

  17. KateS February 28, 2011 at 02:54 #

    I agree with the general consensus about her poor breasts, which look dreadfully squished. I love the colour on her, but I think there’s too much of it in that fabric.

  18. mochababe73 February 28, 2011 at 03:09 #

    I don’t like the way the boobs look in the dress.
    The gown is stunning. The color is pretty, but I can’t get over the fit.

  19. Ethne Blist February 28, 2011 at 03:27 #

    The only thing I don’t like, as everyone has already said, the twins are halter-awkward and she should have just had one blingy bracelet instead of two wrist-worths. But other than those two, I like this look on her.

  20. msd February 28, 2011 at 03:30 #

    The colour is fantastic, if only it wasn’t doing such awful things to her breasts! It’s hard not to stare once you’ve noticed which then cheapens the whole look.

  21. candice February 28, 2011 at 05:38 #

    the boobs have tan lines on them, and they are smooshed together. sometimes if ur boobs are a certain size, it is best to keep the under wraps than all exposed.

    ugh.

    I agree that the fit at the breasts wasn’t the best but its not like she did a Drew Barrymore lol. The color is beautiful but the hair was too costumey

  23. Kristie February 28, 2011 at 06:27 #

    Is it just me or is anyone else thinking possible boob job? They just don’t look natural to me…

  24. Andreea February 28, 2011 at 08:09 #

    I’m horrified.I don’t want to be,but i am..

  25. Emi February 28, 2011 at 10:10 #

    My eyes goes to her breast, she’s thin, now, why didn’t she hide it inside the dress like the model? The halter dress has been modified, but in the wrong way, there’s too much fabric on the side of her breast, while the “problem” is in the middle. There’re too bracelets. This gown isn’t particularly beautiful, too me, let it stay in 2008.

  26. Mary February 28, 2011 at 10:27 #

    I don’t really like this look now that I see it still, but it translated so beautiful on the screen last nigh. She was litterally glowing and I think it has a lot to do with her smile and personality

  27. Kimma February 28, 2011 at 11:18 #

    I like everything about this look – the colour, the cut, the make up… but she just doesn’t have the breasts for a plunging neckline.

  28. Stylerep February 28, 2011 at 14:21 #

    Is there any way that you can post a pic of her shoes Fashion Critic, pls..

  29. Annaa February 28, 2011 at 14:51 #

    I mean.. what happened to her breast?

  30. Colleen February 28, 2011 at 15:34 #

    I love the gown, I love the color, but her breasts are too distracting. Was it really necessary to have the ladies out front like that? They ruined this dress for me. (She does look fabulous, though!)

  31. marian February 28, 2011 at 16:11 #

    i’m amazed by all the criticism. on tv, she looked stunning and was one of my favorite of the night. i’m not a huge fan of the hair but am not bothered by the bling or the boobs at all. seriously – the color, the drama, and the fit all worked for me. where’s the love???

  32. pam March 1, 2011 at 02:21 #

    Can not comment on her hair, makeup or jewels because all I can see are the tits. Sorry, but she looks seriously “playboy playmate” here.
