She has come a long way since her American Idol days, but Jennifer Hudson is still impressing us left and right. Most recently, the singer and actress dazzled on the red carpet in a vibrant chartreuse dress and red lips.
While celebrating her appearance on the cover of Good Housekeeping in New York, Hudson rocked an origami shift that hugged her recently-reduced curves just right. Her white patent leather peep-toe platforms completed her look gorgeously with a dainty mary-jane strap.
The starlet kept her hair simple - letting long waves fall across her shoulders with a few strands pinned back. The hairstyle was perfect to show off her bold makeup. Hudson grounded a metallic silver eyeshadow palette with black eyeliner, and kept her blush and bronzer natural. Her red lips stole the show, however. Using an orange-crush hue that is perfectly on-trend, the singer reminded us why we came to love her in the first place.
Choosing lipstick on the orangey side of the spectrum seems to be the choice of many stars this year, a trend that follows Pantone's announcement of the color of 2012: Tangerine Tango.
