Jennifer Hudson In The Blonds & Dolce & Gabbana – VH1’s Divas Celebrate Soul Performances

Jennifer Hudson showcased more than just her singing abilities when she took to the stage at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City last night for VH1’s Divas Celebrate Soul event.

She wore a very sexy ruby mini dress from The Blonds Spring 2012 collection.

This signature corset dress is bejewelledwith contrasting sequins.

It’s a shame that the PVC strips across the front of the bodice and the straps are visible, because she really worked this look on the stage.

Her second look was simply sensational.

She donned another look from The Blonds Spring 2012 collection.

The full-length show-stopper was covered in multi-coloured crystals which dazzled the crowd.

Sporting yet another hairstyle, the diva opted for side-swept locks, a bright pink lip colour and silver strappy sandals to complete her performance look.

Jennifer’s third look was a fuchsia pink Dolce & Gabbana lace, embellished confection which she paired with Christian Louboutin ‘No. 299′ ankle strap peep-toes.

The second The Blonds look was my favourite.

    I prefer Jennifer’s ladylike side. The first looks like bad Beyonce. The second is terrific.

      Agreed. I like the wavy hair for a change as well.

      Spot on with ad Betonce! I prefer second look to all!

    I love the second look (eye-catching in a good way, sassy, young, and yet elegant) just as much as I hate the first one (cheap, customey and unflattering).

      +1. The second look is gorgeous and perfect for her, but the first is TACKY!

        add me to this opinion….

  3. TeaAtTwo December 19, 2011 at 16:38 #

    These outfits remind me alot of Beyonce. Jennifer looks divalicious.

    That sequined gown is certainly BDOTW material if not BDOTY. She looks totally fabulous in that. It is really a winner.

    • mm December 19, 2011 at 17:30 #

      I agree

  5. Alina December 19, 2011 at 16:44 #

    Second look is BDOTW-worthy.

  6. mol December 19, 2011 at 16:58 #

    I’m for sure on the second look train, her figure looks stunning in that gown.

  7. Jess December 19, 2011 at 17:01 #

    2nd = yay, 1st = nay.
    The visible pvc strips across the bust are tragic.

  8. Linda December 19, 2011 at 17:07 #

    Yuck, yuck, yuck! Don’t go down that road! The first one is cookie cutter, try hard, boring, tacky J-Lo/Beyonce material – really their stage looks have all looked the same to me for the past five years or so.

    The second one is much nicer.

    I prefer Florence Welch’s performance style – it’s amazingly gracious, ladylike, fashion forward, attractive – I could go on and on – compared to a lot of these ladies.

    That sequined blonds gown is fablicious !

  10. dee December 19, 2011 at 17:25 #

    Love the gown on her the 1st look not so much.

  11. Gaber December 19, 2011 at 17:52 #

    I am not the biggest fan of the length of the second look – I think it would have worked much better if it touched the floor.

  12. alessandro December 19, 2011 at 18:45 #

    no one talk about Dolce & Gabbana Dress. It the only ress for a youth lady……… the 1rs and 2nd ara ……. no comment

    • Fashion Critic December 19, 2011 at 18:49 #

      I just added it that’s why no one has commented on it yet

  13. imam December 19, 2011 at 18:56 #

    the 2nd blonde look will be nominated for next BDOTW :)

  14. Nat39 December 19, 2011 at 19:10 #

    The 2nd look is def. the winner, the gown looks better on her than the model. Her 3rd pink one is adorable.

  15. MJ December 19, 2011 at 22:42 #

    The first look is my least favorite, however she looks better in it than the model does! You go, Jennifer!

  16. Verena Hafner - musings of a fashion stylist December 19, 2011 at 22:56 #

    I love her in the Dolce. It’s the most flattering to her figure and she looks lovely in it.

  17. mandy December 20, 2011 at 00:38 #

    Absolutely dislike the first look. Feels like she is trying to hard. Those corsets are generally reserved for the likes of Rihanna, Fergie, Katy etc. She should stick with her best style which is the 2nd and 3rd look. She looks amazing.

  18. let December 20, 2011 at 01:07 #

    the first and second look are awful!

  19. Dhruvi December 20, 2011 at 03:41 #

    I’ve been dying to find out who made that 2nd dress! Of course, it’s The Blonds and it’s divine! Love, love …. LOVE!

  20. Valeria December 20, 2011 at 04:54 #

    What Is it that lately Dolce&Gabbana looks have been so tacky? I really dislike her third dress and the fridge makes it even more ridiculous

  21. roxana December 20, 2011 at 06:25 #

    the long dress is awesome!

  22. Jess2 December 21, 2011 at 13:59 #

    The second and third looks are awesome!! She looks great!

  23. Raquel December 21, 2011 at 15:49 #

    First look – FAIL.

    Second look – WIN.

    Third look – OK.

  24. Shaina December 21, 2011 at 16:18 #

    The second look is STUNNING! BDOTW worthy in my eyes.
