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.”

I don’t get it. Why do you all pick on Jennifer Hudson? Why are you even reading this website. It’s entertainment news. You all are just reall sad or just really jealous of people like this. I feel sorry for all of you.

I admire Jennifer – she’s been through a lot – and there’s no denying she’s talented, but if I read one more article or see one more commercial or one more interview about her weight loss, she’s lost me as a fan. Reading the comments, I don’t think I’m the only one who feels this way. That should be an indication that people are sick of hearing about it.

I have to say — celebrities losing weight does not impress me. Even if she did it 100% naturally, she has the time/money to do it that none of us regular people have. She has personal trainers & personal chefs. If I had those things at my disposal, I’d look great too.

Also – those obnoxious commercials with her singing about her weight loss? They need to stop.

I think it is great that she lost so much weight, and she is healthier. But having these celebrities show how they can lose weight on weight watchers, Jenny Craig etc. it does not impress me, because I would like to see someone without money, trainers, chefs… who has huge obstacles to go through that can lose 100 plus pounds, now that would impress me…

I am happy that she is skinny and all but she is not a nice person at all.

I’m really getting sick and tired of hearing about her weight loss and the incessant screeching as she tries to sing during the commercials. Enough is enough. Try going through life without relying on your changing body. Such a mega loser and I’m definitely not referring to weight.
