Jennifer Hudson In Maria Lucia Hohan – President Barack Obama’s 50th Birthday Celebrations

Jennifer Hudson attended a fundraiser for President Barack Obama at the Aragon Ballroom in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois yesterday.

The fundraiser doubled up as his 50th birthday celebration, so Jennifer led the crowd in singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to the president.

She also performed some other songs including the Beatles‘ classic ‘Let It Be’, wearing a Maria Lucia Hohan LBD.

The delicate dress with gold shoulder straps and a gold belt was paired with Miu Miu crystal-heel suede pumps which have a sliver heel and silver platform.

I’m not a fan of mixing metals, so I wish she opted for a different pair of heels.

The dress however is outstanding.

It’s nice to see her wearing a different silhouette.

    I don’t mind the mixed metals here. Her figure looks great, I have no complaints.

    Wow, Maria Lucia Hohan has come a long way! She’s a romanian designer, i once bought a dress of hers cause she has pretty, classic models but i must say i would have never expected to see one of her dresses featured on this site! Good job for her. Jennifer looks good.

    Love this! So glad Romania finally has a talented designer to show off in the world. :)

    She looks fantastic. The dress is perfect on her and her hair and makeup are to die for. Much prefer this look to the usual super body-con dresses she likes.

    I feel so proud of my fellow Romanian. Her designs have been worn by celebrities like Joanna Fath,Chelsea Kane,Selena Gomez,Jennifer Hudson – this is HUGE!
    I hope that other celebrities will also discover her great work.

    The dress is stunning and it looks so good on Jennifer.Hair and makeup are also perfect.
