Jennifer Hudson is a busy woman these days!
Luckily, the actress slash singer slash designer managed to find time to chat with WWD about all the craziness!
"I designed my dress, but it wasn't the first time because I also designed my prom dress. I've always had a love for making things my own. With my wedding dress, I was like, ‘It has to be me.’ My mother used to say, ‘If you want something done right, do it yourself.’ The dress has three compartments: a coat, a dress and a train. It has its own little show."
On who inspires her work:
“Definitely Michael Kors. I love that he caters to every woman, the real woman, the everyday woman — every curve, every size, every age. I feel like I get that from him. I love Givenchy as well, and Rick Owens. I have a Rick Owens coat that feels like a bathrobe, but it’s this fierce coat. Sometimes I walk around my house in it like it’s a robe because it’s that comfortable. That’s another thing I wanted to highlight — comfort. When you’re uncomfortable in what you’re wearing, the clothes end up wearing you. That’s the attitude I’ve always had: It’s more about you wearing the clothes, not them wearing you.”
She was also asked about her 300 pairs of leggings (!?!?!?), and gushed over her new closet:
"Right now, I’m in between two homes. In one, the clothes have completely moved me out of the house. The whole house is basically a closet. At the other home, I’m building the biggest, grandest dream closet for [all my clothes]. I’m all about the clothes. I want to be able to walk in the room and see and know everything I have. I want the leggings to have their own space, the dresses to have theirs, the coats. It is the most important place in my home, period.”
Dang gurl! Keep up the hard work!!
