Grammy Award winner Jennifer Hudson stopped by CBS on Thursday to discuss her role in HBO’s Confirmation and the American Idol finale. She wore a custom bandage dress from Project Runway alum, Christian Siriano, Spring Summer 2016 collection.
Nixing the fringe fabric, she opted for a full criss-cross bandage midi-length dress. She also decided to forgo the pink hue within the original design of the dress and played up the black and white stripes. Jennifer elegantly threw a long gray coat over her shoulder as she waved to fans and press.
While parlaying with CBS she brought up a story about how a fan congratulated her on winning American Idol and she had to tell the fan she did not, much to their disbelief! We often forget that Jennifer Hudson placed seventh on season 3 of the show (Fantasia was the winner). Nevertheless, the opportunity opened many doors for the Golden Globe winner.
“In everything there is a lesson and it leads to greater things.” ~ Jennifer Hudson on placing 7th on American Idol
Speak on it, Jennifer. Beauties, is this look FAB or FUG?
