She should have known from this shot...high fashion doesn't always translate into cute!Jennifer Hudson
apparently revealed this morning on The Today Show that she didn't want to wear the gold Star-Trek-eque Oscar De La Renta
Bolero but as the NY Post
reports, Andre Leon Talley
[Editor-at-Large of Vogue] had a conniption and she caved...she's green, she'll learn
His co-star, Jennifer Hudson, did win big - but lost big, too, because of the much ridiculed metallic bolero Andre Leon Talley made her put on. (Post fashion editor Serena French said it made her look "lost in space.") "Jennifer was kind of sponsored by Talley and Vogue," said one fashionista. "Andre insisted she wear that hideous Oscar de la Renta dress with the awful, awful gold python bolero.
"Jennifer really didn't want to, and so [noted stylist] Jessica Paster got her a beautiful gold Roberto Cavalli custom-made. But when Andre found out, he went ballistic. Moments before she left for the show, there was a power struggle and Jennifer ended up putting his outfit on."
In all honestly, the brown dress was fine alone, the pockets were very trendy but the bolero killed it...lessons learned!
This is what it looks like on the stick figure model...Spotted @ YBF
