Jennifer Hudson‘s drastic weight loss may no longer be breaking news, but the fashion plate says she’s constantly surprised by her slimmer figure.

“I just love fashion now,” she told Stylelist at the New York celebration for her recent Good Housekeeping cover on Tuesday. “It’s so much more flexible, and there are so many more options out there now. I feel like my own little Barbie doll — I get to dress myself up.” And with the lighter footprint also comes fancier footwork: “I hated heels before, but that’s all I wear now.”

And though everything looks good on her (just check out the three outfits she wore over the course of two days, above), her style philosophy is rather complex. “Because it’s a new body, I’m trying to find out, how do I want to be perceived?” she laments. “Who is this new me? I knew how to be the big girl, but now I have to find out how to be this girl.”

Wow…Jealous much. Why do you have to be so cruel. She is proud of her accomplishment. And who cares if its in the news more than once a week – why does it bother you? And way to go for encouraging her – instead you are bringing her down. Its people like you that people “fall of the wagon and get fat again”. All the insulting comments bring people back to where they were. Maybe you shouldn’t read the article.

So this is what I would say “Good for you” and its pictures like this that make me motivated” so keep them coming cause it is possible for everyone !!!”


Miss Hudson looks really good but enough already…talk about something else

What a bunch of haters posting messages. It’s disappointing to see how mean people can be. If you’re done with following Jennifer’s progress, then stop reading the articles. You go Jen!!!! You look great! You are a beautiful person inside and out. Keep up the great work and enjoy each day.

Good lord, is she ever going to SHUT UP about this already? I’ve already lost a ton of respect for her for conforming to society’s standards instead of just being herself and I’m losing more by the day when she says silly things like losing weight is more important to her than winning an Oscar. Time to get back to what made you famous in the first place – your TALENT not your waist size!

she’s one of those women who when she was fat had a “pretty face.” and then when she lost the weight, it turned out her face wasn’t very pretty at all. too bad…

Haters…she looks damn good. It’s a huge accomplishment to lose that much weight. Let her rock that body in every magazine for how ever long she wants.

Ugh….enough already! Yes you’re skinny, yes, it’s great. Go sing something.

Why do women have to hate on each other so much? Good Lord! I know some of you are trying to be funny, but you just sound bitter and jealous.
