Jennifer Hudson In Francesco Scognamiglio – VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul

Jennifer Hudson showcased a shorter ‘do on the red carpet for VH1’s Divas Celebrate Soul event at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City last night.

She donned a head-to-toe Francesco Scognamiglio Fall 2011 look.

I’m pretty confident my opinion won’t be shared, but I kinda like this.

It’s a huge departure from what we are used to seeing on JHud.

The event is about divas and this look has diva written all over it – from the sexy shimmering knit dress to the gold-embellished over-the-knee boots.

Somewhere JLo is fuming that she didn’t get her hands on this look first.

Does this look work for you?

Who Wore Marchesa Better? Olivia Wilde or Jennifer Hudson

Back in January when Olivia Wilde was wowing us on the red carpet, she wore this chocolate Marchesa tulle gown which was decorated with gold sequins to the 2011 Golden Globe Awards.

Jennifer Hudson wore the same gown whilst taping the ‘Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade’ TV special at the Disneyland Resort in California on Friday.

With no visible accessories on either of these lovely ladies – a smart choice based on the sheer magnitude of the dress – we can only judge based on hair and makeup.

Olivia wore her brunette locks sleek and straight, with blunt bangs and smoky eye makeup. Jennifer chose to play up the princess look, with major curls and bright pink lips.

With a gown this gorgeous on two stunning ladies, it’s almost impossible to choose between them, but Olivia has the edge for us due to her inspired footwear choice.

Jennifer Hudson In Versace – Swarovski Elements And Rodeo Drive Holiday Lighting Ceremony

After failing to impress us at the 2011 American Music Awards, Jennifer Hudson joined Jessica Alba at the Swarovski Rodeo Drive holiday lighting ceremony.

We can’t see much of her pink Alice Temperley dress (which I’m thinking might be a good thing), but we can see her Versace Fall 2011 white coat.

The coat is instantly recognizable by the gold hardware.

I wish Jennifer had used the belt to pull the coat together to make it the star of this look because nothing else is working for me.

Jimmy Choo ‘Ellie’ booties completed her look.

Jennifer Hudson In Jenny Packham – 2011 American Music Awards

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.

Versace For H&M Fashion Event

Emma Roberts: I was very excited to see Emma at this event, mostly because she’s wearing strappy sandals sans tights. Her electric-blue shoes were paired with a Versace for H&M floral-print bustier and matching leggings. A studded bag and side-swept curls completed her look.

Jessica Alba: The actress added a pop of colour to her lips whilst donning a sparkling Versace for H&M top and skirt. Still not feeing Jess at the moment.

Selma Blair: The mother of one wore a bubblegum-pink Versace for H&M studded dress with gold sandals. I don’t think the racoon eyes quite work with the dress.

Kaylee DeFer: The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress is hardly recognisable with those super-tight curls. She wore Versace for H&M pink sandals with her sweetheart-print Versace for H&M dress with fringed details.

Jennifer Hudson In Michael Kors – Tokyo’s Fashion’s Night Out & Omotesando Store Opening

Jennifer Hudson was in Tokyo, Japan, on Saturday night to help Michael Kors celebrate his new Omotesando store opening and Tokyo’s Fashion’s Night Out.

The svelte singer is becoming quite the ambassador for Michael Kors and I can see why.

She donned a stunning Michael Kors Spring 2012 leopard-print long-sleeve dress for FNO.

You know I have a mild weakness for leopard print, so you’ll know that I almost passed out at the fabulousness of this look which has a gathered detail on the waist.

The actress/singer sported sleek, straight locks and added Ferragamo black pumps to her look.

Whilst recovering from the first look, Jennifer’s second Michael Kors outfit almost rendered me speechless at the Michael Kors Celebration of American Fashion at the US Ambassador’s Residence in Japan on the same night.

Her black Michael Kors Spring 2012 fishtail gown with a gold python yoke shows off all that hard work.

If she hasn’t given herself a pat on the back yet, now is the time.

She’s simply sensational. I can’t pick a favourite look.

Can you?
