Grammy and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson’s latest role is fronting Saks Fifth Avenue’s 2011 Key to the Cure campaign.
A familiar face on the fashion scene, the slimmed-down 29-year-old models a limited edition Elie Tahari-designed T-shirt in a public service announcement that will bow in September and October magazines. The Chicagoan will also headline a launch event at Saks before the retailer’s charity shopping weekend Oct. 20 to 23 at all Saks and Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th stores, as well as saks.com. Having belted out songs at the Super Bowl and the Grammys, as well as on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” Hudson knows how to be a showstopper. In fact, her star wattage is what resonated with Tahari.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
