Jennifer Hudson performed at the 12th Annual Art for Life benefit on Saturday, which was held at a Private Residence in East Hampton, New York.

She was spotted backstage looking beautiful wearing a Lela Rose cotton-threaded tulle dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

Her dress has been modified as the skirt under the cotton thread overlay has been shortened to make more of an impact as a performance piece.

I adore her Christian Louboutin Maggie leopard print pumps, but they don’t work for me with her beige tulle cap sleeve dress.

My only other compliant is that the dress appears to be too tight around the bust.
