Jennifer Hudson stepped out for tonight's American Music Awards at the Nokia Theater in LA. She slipped on a sexy Jenny Packham dress for the show, where she's a presenter. Other famous faces that are set to take the stage and hand out honors include Sarah Hyland, Jenny McCarthy, Julie Bowen, and Taylor Swift. Jennifer's been all over red carpets on the East Coast lately having also attended a charity gala and the Versace for H&M event this month.
Gathering at the Museum of Modern Art last night, some of our favorites in fashion stepped out for amfAR's second annual Inspiration Gala. Inside, Michael Kors was honored as the recipient of the organization's Award of Courage, given to recognize his efforts to combat AIDS. While on the red carpet, Kors seemed to be the designer of choice among the night's guests. Jennifer Hudson, who also performed at the benefit, opted for a short, white Michael Kors sheath and mirrored platform sandals while Heidi Klum took to the red carpet in Kors's draped, aqua-blue halter gown. Meanwhile, Alek Wek showed off a funkier style in a fringed and sequined trimmed dress, and Chanel Iman opted for rich, saturated color and dramatic eyes. Now we're putting it to you — who's your pick for best dressed?
Heidi Klum was stunning in a blue dress last night at amfAR's benefit held inside NYC's Museum of Modern Art. She was joined at the fashionable bash by other stars like Joanna Garcia-Swisher, Chanel Iman, and Jennifer Hudson, who sung "Hallelujah" for the crowd. Liza Minnelli was on hand to perform. Michael was the recipient of the organization's Award of Courage, given to recognize his efforts to combat AIDS. James Franco was likewise feted for his awareness-raising activism with the Piaget Award of Inspiration. Humble James said of his amFar prize, "I'm still a little unsure why I'm being honored, but I'm glad that I'm here and I'm glad that I can help. It's certainly a cause that I believe in." James celebrated by catching up with Ke$ha while JoAnna mingled with friends like Bravo's Andy Cohen and Lance Bass.
With days to go until the royal wedding, celebrities like Jennifer Hudson, Alexa Chung, and Lauren Conrad (those are her cool ombrè nails) have drawn their inspiration from royal blue beauty products to get in the spirit of things. Jennifer wore electric blue shadow and liner whilst in London last week, and Alexa was spotted at the Coachella Music Festival wearing blue nail polish. LC used her graduated blue nails as one of her first posts on her new beauty site, and it's got me looking for wearable blue shades. Check out some of my blue beauty finds below, and let me know which products you like most.
Last night in central London, Jennifer Hudson stepped out of her hotel looking chic and casual for the unusually warm evening. The Oscar-winning actress and singer wore a pair of denim cutoffs paired with an asymmetrical black blazer, python Christian Louboutin booties, a silky grey t-shirt, and long, beaded earrings. I also love her use of royal blue eyeshadow that she picked up from the lining of her jacket. Shop her style, and let me know what you think of her cool ensemble.
Gwen Stefani landed on the cover of Elle's May Women in Music issue. The singer is currently working on her seventh album with No Doubt and she also has her hands full with her sweet sons. Jennifer Hudson, who has her own adorable little guy, Willow Smith, Adele, and Florence Welch are some of the other artists featured in the magazine along with Aretha Franklin, Nicki Minaj and Feist. All the ladies chatted with Elle about their work, though Gwen got personal and touched on her husband, Gavin Rossdale, her appearance, and pregnancy. Here's more:
- Gwen on Gavin: “The first time we ever kissed was right around Valentine’s Day — we were in New Orleans on tour. So, yeah, I always think about that because it’s unbelievable that we’ve been able to stay together. I feel so proud of us — it’s one of my biggest achievements.”
- Gwen on her appearance: “I mean, I’m very vain. That would be my middle name. Of course I am, you know what I mean? I love the visual."
- Gwen on performing while pregnant: “It was horrible. Certain songs would make me want to puke. You feel pretty gross when you are first pregnant. You don’t feel cute, you feel disgusting. You’re getting fat. It was hard.”
- Jennifer on the changes in her life: “My surroundings and my lifestyle are different, and it’s like, what part of Jennifer is the same as 10 years ago? The only thing I have to hold on to is my voice.”
The ponytail braid has been the style of choice for many celebrities hitting the red carpet as of late. It's a chic, carefree look, but if you're searching for some more unique ways to style these types of braids, you've come to the right place.
Take Jennifer Hudson, for instance, who sported this ultralong side braid at a recent event. To get the style, snap in some thick, long extensions if your hair is not naturally this length or texture, and braid all the way down to the very end for a cascading effect. See more ideas for getting your ponytail braid on right now.
Jennifer Hudson made a show-stopping entrance in a fitted dress at the launch party for her new album, I Remember Me, at NYC's Tenjune last night. The bash wrapped up a long day for the singer, who was up early to make the morning show rounds. She stopped by Good Morning America to chat up her music and also show off baby David Jr. while he watched from behind the cameras. Her 2-and-a-half-year-old son has been by her side during her promotional tour, which happens to coincide with the current season of American Idol — fitting since Jennifer is one of many stars who got their start as a cast-off from the show.
Last night in Los Angeles, singer, actress and super skinny Jennifer Hudson celebrated the drop of her latest album "I Remember Me" wearing bright pink lipstick across her beautiful, wide smile. I am really excited to hear more from this CD as Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo and Swizz Beatz have also written music on it. Jennifer was just spotted in nude lipstick (her most common red carpet look) and bright red too recently. Out of these three options, which colour do think complements Jennifer's skin best?
