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.”

Soooooooooooooooo VERY TIRED of hearing about her!Focus on something else already….how about helping people in need with all that money you deposit in the bank instead of spending it all on your favorite person…yourself.

Can we talk about something else now? All the press is making Ms. Hudson appear vain, shallow and attention-seeking.

What’s wrong with you people? What’s wrong with needing help to lose weight? At least she did it. And predicting she’s going to just gain it back? Shame on you. What bitter hags.

I so agree – this is getting really old. If this is the only way that she can stay in the spotlight then she needs to go away! Who cares if she was overweight and then she was skinny. Like the others in a few years when she is not getting paid by Weight Watchers she will gain the weight back – they always do!

Wow,so many negative comments today! Yes, Jennifer lost 85lbs and she should be proud of it. WW is using her to promote their business and so are the magazines. As women we should support each other not be so judgemental of someone’s success or failures. Jennifer, keep doing what you want to do and not worry about the haters!

Seriously, congrats to you Jennifer Hudson and to all those whom have achieved this great accomplishment in their lives. There I said it —— NOW CAN WE ALL GET OVER IT, PLEASE!?!?! I’m happy for her and all but enough is enough! God forbid she gains it back, is she going to be so vocal about it then? So can we just let it be…. You look great and you feel great now just go out there and be great about something else! :D

Really enough. She has not and will not be the last person to lose weight! Come on…. Why are we hearing about this every singal day?

La Tasha on

How about everyone stop being haters, she struggled half her life with a weight problem so give her a break….Go ahead Jennifer keep flaunting your new body!!!
