It’s great to see a real looking woman out there looking fantastic.

I think she is absolety beautiful. She always looks great, and has confidence in herself which is also a very important quality.

Too tight huh???? Don’t think so – this lady is gorgeous and should show off her lovely curves.

Rock on Jennifer!!

Is it me or did anyone else realise that her breasts are lopsided, it showed up especially at the Grammys
Other than that she wears clothes that suits her figure :-)

i was so mad when jennifer lost to someone else during her “IDOL” days…i thought she was fantastic. but losing the competition in american idol did her great…it’s like she just popped into the hollywood scene all of a sudden. i’m excited for her especially after DREAMGIRLS. i think she’s really awesome and truly deserves the best. she looks better than ever! go jennifer! she looks lovely in her gowns…they’re perfect for her body. very classy!

She should really stick to sleeves… and/or try jogging or something…

Good for her. I’m tired of everyone thinking you have to be a size 2 to be beautiful. It puts too much pressure on women and gives a lot of men unrealistic expectations.

She’s awesome! I LOVE her syle! Everything she wears is lovely and looks GREAT in her! Go Jennifer!

Elda on

I agree with you Marissa she is awesome!!

I am so sick of Jennifer Hudson already. Sure she has amazing talent and a certain star quality but she is full of it. I’m all about different shapes and sizes being beautiful, we all come in different packages. But this full-figured woman claiming to be a size 12? That’s about as believable as Kirstie Alley saying she weighed 145 when she appeared on Oprah. If you want to be celebrated for having something to grab onto, then fess up about your REAL stats or just omit them completely, but don’t lie.
