Jennifer Hudson graced the red carpet wearing a very different silhouette at the 2011 American Music Award, which were held at the Nokia Theatre LA Live in California last night.

The singer donned a Jenny Packham Fall 2011 mini dress.

Her platinum metallic jersey drape-front dress is a refreshing change to those fitted dresses she loves to wear.

Unfortunately the praise stops there.

I don’t know what possessed her to wear those Christian Louboutin Daffodile Strass gunmetal-grey pumps.

They are unappealing to start with but they also weigh down her look.

It’s such a huge shame because I like everything else that is going on here, especially the pink lip shade.
