Jennifer Hudson is a Purse Girl

Jennifer Hudson is a Purse Girl

Jennifer Hudson works out her curves in Peter Sororen at the premiere of Sex and the City: The Movie at Radio City Music Hall on Tuesday in New York City.

The 26-year-old Oscar actress recently talked with USA Today about her obsession with fashion:

Are you into shoes or bags? I’m a purse girl. I remember, I had a scene where you didn’t see my feet. So I took my shoes. Michael Patrick’s like, ‘Put those heels back on. You’re not fully in character unless you’re in heels.’ He’s serious. I had to put my heels back on. It’s hard. The heels are mandatory.

How many purses do you own? I have about 14 (bags) that are extremely expensive that were given to me. My mom says, ‘Don’t touch nothing you can’t pay for.’ My favorite is my Jimmy Choo bag – I got that one first. Another one of my favorites is my Valentino, which Valentino himself gave to me when I was in Rome last year. It has my initials on the side.

    Hudson is hot, just not in that particular outfit, thats all I meant

  • OMG

    her skin looks fabulous. her hair is also looking HOT. you know she has tons of make-up on but it looks so natural. i actually like her outfit – just not the color or the material if that makes sense. it really flatters her figure. i must say though, it was a mistake to pose next to sjp. it makes her look like an amazon. i hope sjp is wearing flats or jh is one big gal.

  • rae

    Ha. The heels comment is hilarious and so SaTC.

  • L

    At first glance her face looks good, but on second it really looks awful. She is too shiny and I guess they were going for a natural look but it just doesn’t work. The outfit is also terrible. She just can’t get it right. Though, I do have to agree with others that say she is a one hit wonder. That Oscar was a fluke.

  • Erin

    She looks really really pretty!!!! I like that she doesn’t wear as much make-up.

    Why doesn’t she lose some weight?????????????????
    It’s bad for her health!!!
    And she would look MUCH better in these hideous dresses she insists on wearing.

  • jing

    She has huge breasts, that’s what making her look big.
    Besides, she seems healthy enough to me.

    Let’s stop the whole proana-crap. Im over it.

  • Ely

    Is this her? or some wax figure. She looks like a hershey kiss with the top part opened slightly…

  • http://justjared Victoria

    I’m glad she loves herself the way she is. She is beautiful the way she is. Let’s leave her alone. More women should be happy eating what they want, then picking and moving food around on their plate, so their size 0 and 2′s will fit. Go, honey. You look good.

  • barbie

    Jennifer Hudson looks a million times better than SJP. She is an amazon! With her height, her full figure is fine. And to the person who says, why did she win an Oscar…because of her fabulous singing and character in Dreamgirls, matching totally the star calibre of beyonce, eddie murphy and jamie fox.

  • olsenfan

    Jennifer looks huge next to Sarah Jessica Parker in the same way that the other “Samantha” and “Miranda” always did. Especially, in the scene they show in previews where they’re stalking down the sidewalk and “Samantha” is wearing shoulder pads. She looks like a monster next to “Carrie.” Sara, she’s just a tiny woman. So, it’s no big deal. Jennifer looks great. But I don’t think they needed her in the movie, simply because I bore of the stereotypical brassy black assisstant. Why couldn’t Jennifer have been an editor or journalist covering Carrie’s nuptials or any other good thing?

  • oakling

    that is so crazy about the heels. makes me worry a little bit about the directing ;)

  • Sharon

    Ms Hudson is a big beautiful woman who pays no attention to the nuts who envy her success. She looks amazing, but best of all, she looks like she is proud of herself. Go Jennifer!

  • jane two

    She looks FANTASTIC !!! Whether a few people think she is fat or not, she is going to have a great career following in the footsteps of another black beauty – Queen Latifah. She can sing like nobody else and she more than deserved her Oscar. Her performance in Dream Girls was beyond Oscar winning.

    Too bad if you don’t like women who look like women are supposed to look. Plenty of others will do the looking and applauding and enjoying her beauty and talent.
