By now, Jennifer Hudson is a Grammy Awards red carpet fixture, but the singer’s favorite red carpet memories are from her early years at the music awards show. And there’s one dress in particular that she still loves to reminisce about.

“It was a red dress that I wore to my first Grammys [in 2007],” she told PEOPLE. “It was a very body-conscious dress, and it kind of had a fishtail at the end. I don’t remember the material, but I loved it so much. And that was in my bigger days and I loved it. You couldn’t tell me nothin’.”

The star’s Roberto Cavalli stunner, worn before her very public slimdown with Weight Watchers, definitely put her killer curves on display, and we love that she played up the look with fun gold accessories and simple hair. We also think Hudson’s a fabulous role model for loving the way you look and dressing for your shape at any size.

Right now, Hudson is busy prepping her look for Clive Davis’s annual pre-Grammys party — not to mention shopping for a complete new wardrobe to go with her pixie.

“The hair change is almost as drastic as my weight loss! It feels the exact same way,” she said. “Shorter hair makes me look taller, so I’m still trying to figure that out. I want clothes that will elongate my body. If you are gonna wear a different style, you have to wear it, you can’t let it wear you.”

What do you think of the singer’s favorite Grammys look? What’s your favorite Grammys memory of all time?
