Jennifer Hudson attended the 13th Annual Saks Key to the Cure Campaign event, which was held at The Crown in New York City on Wednesday evening.

The actress/singer who lends her star power to this cancer research campaign wore an Elie Tahari Lolly dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

I love how sophisticated and chic she looks in this tweed dress with a multi-coloured digital-print silk bodice.

That grosgrain waistband does a great job of cinching in her waist.

Brown suede peep-toes, silver jewels and nude glossy lips completed her look.

This summer, many of you grew very tired of her bandage-style dresses, so you’ll be relieved that she’s working a different look.
