Jennifer Hudson‘s drastic weight loss may no longer be breaking news, but the fashion plate says she’s constantly surprised by her slimmer figure.

“I just love fashion now,” she told Stylelist at the New York celebration for her recent Good Housekeeping cover on Tuesday. “It’s so much more flexible, and there are so many more options out there now. I feel like my own little Barbie doll — I get to dress myself up.” And with the lighter footprint also comes fancier footwork: “I hated heels before, but that’s all I wear now.”

And though everything looks good on her (just check out the three outfits she wore over the course of two days, above), her style philosophy is rather complex. “Because it’s a new body, I’m trying to find out, how do I want to be perceived?” she laments. “Who is this new me? I knew how to be the big girl, but now I have to find out how to be this girl.”

It’s getting really old now. Good for her for losing weight, but having article upon article about her being skinny is getting old.

@ Brocklee- I totally agree with you.. Enough already, good for her but she will end up like the others who fall off the wagon, I.E. Kirstie Alley and quite few others. It’s getting really old and annoying. So what she lost weight, basically she is admitting that she needed help to do it.

You’re skinny we get it, good for you! She’s a has been trying to hold onto her 15 minutes of fame by continously talking about her weight loss. Sheesh normal folks do it all the time, why is this stik being featured by people? Slowness day?

When is Hudson going to confess to gastric bypass surgery? I don’t believe for a NY minute that she lost the weight naturally -she is a phony!

It doesn’t look good on her because her face is still big, so being that small is not flattering for her. I thought she was prettier chunkier. Some people can get away with being really thin but some can’t….

She will be fat again soon. SHe looks horrible because her head and face is way big.

Jester on

We should all have this problem…

She does not keep bringing it up, her new book was just released 4 days ago (its about her weightloss journey, written last year) Thats why its suddenly news again. Though I will admit that yes, its getting old.
