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.”

What lies are people believing? She isn’t skinny. Period. I think shse has quite a ways to go to be put into the skinny category. I mean, look at those thighs. Gheesh, and some people are calling other people jealous! Get a grip!

I am really tired of hearing about her losing weight. Yes, good for her but it’s been how long and that is the only thing we are tlaking about involving her…I don’t like the way she poses…looks weird. And sheis not skinny-skinny. More like normal. Yawn…

I’m still stuck on the fact that she was so in love with the boyfriend (love of her life) who was a nobody when she became famous & she was going to be with him forever and the next thing I heard she had the famous boyfriend. What happened to the other one?

Enough already. It was great when she first announced it but now enough already. I could lose weight to if I had her money.

BET on

OMG, enough already. She looks good and very happy for her but the weight loss topic with her needs to end. It has been used and abused. Has her Weight Watchers contract not expired yet??? She’s a singer – pls Jennifer, sing and quit yacking about your darn weight!!!!!!! It is getting really old and is now a major turn off where you’re concerned.

she’s so pretty, what a dramatic weight loss. good for her! she’s advertising ladies! not her fault she’s in the news, she is being paid by weight watchers to inspire others.

This woman can afford to eat at any restaurant she wants but, she goes on a diet to shed weight. You people don’t get it.
Many of you have not had the problem. She should scream to the heavens about her weight loss. Every time I see a photo of her I think, I can really get rid of the pounds. I am pleased to read about her success because, indeed, losing weight and keeping it off is not easy. You go girl.

Wow, a ton of haters on this website…she has every right to be proud of herself…if it was me I would shout it from the rooftops…especially with everything she’s been through emotionally, it would be easy for her to give up and gain the weight back. Maybe there’s some skinny envy here? I don’t know, but there are a lot of haters on People today!
