Jennifer Hudson Covers 'Lucky' January 2013

Jennifer Hudson Covers 'Lucky' January 2013

Jennifer Hudson is casual chic on the cover of Lucky magazine‘s January 2013 issue, on newsstands December 11.

Here is what the 31-year-old singer and Smash actress had to share with the mag:

On her biggest fashion inspiration, her grandfather: “The most stylish person in my family was definitely him—he’d take you into his closet and be like, ‘Hey! You need to wear this, Jenny!’ He was dressed down, honey, his closet, his clothes, they were sharp. He would pick things out of his for me to wear, and they were always perfect. That’s why I love menswear.”

On the first time she was asked to slim down: “The first time I was asked to lose weight [on American Idol], I was like, ‘What??’ Where I come from, I was never considered particularly heavy.” After a number of crash-diet attempts, Hudson found success with Weight Watchers because it wasn’t about Hollywood-style deprivation. “You have what you’re craving,” she says. “Chocolate is what I love—I have it every day.”

On her new clothing line: “Being a celebrity, you sort of have to look—decent—when you go out, but you don’t necessarily want to be always dressed up, totally perfect. I have to be flexible, comfortable. I still can’t believe I have my own line. Us ladies, we don’t always get cute if we’re getting comfort. You want both. I hate when you see a guy and girl out together, and he’s walking along, feeling great, and she can’t walk in her heels and she’s freezing in her dress … ”

FYI: Jennifer is wearing a 7 For All Mankind denim jacket, a DKNY top, and an H&M skirt on the cover.

  • wtf

  • Love The Shoes

    So proud of her. She took control of her life even when she had every reason to give up. I marvel at how she deals still with the tradgedy of those she loved the most being murdered right when so many wonderful things were happining in her life. She’s a classy woman and I’m awed by her strength. Her friend Beyonce basically said it too in something I read the other day. They are the Virgo Girls. I loved finding out they were buds and it made sense. Class.

    her body looks great, but her face looked a lot better when she was bigger.

  • Rocky


    Totally disagree. The BEST and will ALWAYS be the best is Kelly!! Jennifer can’t hold a candle when it comes to Kelly’s pipes.

  • Rocky
