Jennifer Hudson Has Never Looked Better

Though Jennifer Hudson may have come in seventh place on American Idol, she's certainly more than a seven in the looks department. We've watched her go from a reality star to an Oscar winner (the only reality star to do so), and sing ballads that give us goosebumps. And, while we always thought Hudson was a dime, her style seem more and more to be matching her monster talent. Last night, at the 7th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball, she flaunted a figure that had us saying wowza. Not only has she lost 54 pounds through Weight Watchers, her fashion seems to have cranked up a notch or two—we're living for the strappy heels with buckles, Dolce & Gabbana velvet dress, and Kara Ross cuff and ring. Oh and that plum lipstick...."Dreamgirl" indeed.
