You are KILLING US here. More importantly, you are KILLING this dress. We would have liked to have seen more divatastic makeup, because a show-stopper dress like this deserves it, but you cut such a strikingly fierce figure standing there that we can’t help but shout “WERQ that body, girl!”

      FIERCE. Full stop.

      Absolutely LOVE that dress–and she does it justice.  You go, JH!

      She looks really, really good here! Certainly werqing it!

      Would kill her for to at least have some bright lipstick but that dress on her! Fantastic. Very happy with the minimal jewelry – any more and it would detract from the dress.

      Holy American Idol, Batman!

      I have GOT to start doing Weight Watchers.  I hope they’re paying her enough, because she is the best advertisement for that organization EVER.

      She looks absolutely stunning! 

      • http://twitter.com/DarthGail Gail Kwak

        WW absolutely works.  I’ve lost a lot more weight on it than JHud, so I’m here to tell you that it you work The Plan, it will work for you.  She does obviously have loose skin issues, and I can totally relate to that! 

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          I’ve lost 85 total.  IT WILL NOT WORK OVERNIGHT THOUGH!  :)  They never announce the spokesperson for it until they’ve already lost a sizable amount, so it can distort the amount of time it takes — my 85 (though I had some medical issues that slowed it down in the beginning) took about 2 years, with a pregnancy and a third in there as well.  Of course, I don’t really workout either, so that probably didn’t help:)

            Awesome loss!  It’s inspirational stories like your’s and JHud’s that keep me going to my WW meetings.  I have lost 62lbs. since January, another 30 to go, but getting there, slowly but surely!

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              Oh, I hear you!  I’ve got another 18 to do if I’m ever NOT pregnant again!  (This one added to the others makes 1 and 2/3 in two years:)

        JHud and I had our baby boys just days apart. She had already lost the weight and WW was launching her as their spokesperson when I joined WW eight months later. She is an inspiration.

      And WERQ those spanx!  Seriously, could her team not figure out a way to soften that undergarment line (pic 2) a bit for the amazing dress?

    • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

      There’s a bit of bulging at waist itself in some of the shots, and I don’t know if it’s the fit is off and she’s hiding it in some shots or if her posing in the bulging shots is off and it’s giving her a weird bump.  And having been through the same diet and loss, I’d be pissed if I looked that great most of the time but had that one little flaw — ’cause I promise, THAT’S the spot she’s going to zoom in on!

      She needs to see a good dermatologist, too — her skin is displeased with her for the high weight loss. 

      And I’m not trying to nitpick the girl or complain about her efforts;  I thought she looked good before, and I think she looks good now. 

      • http://profiles.google.com/thisiscelia Celia

        I think the slight “bump” is from her support garments. Nobody–not even Madonna–wears a dress like this without something underneath.

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          That might be, I know a lot women — particularly ones with really curvy bodies — tend to have that kind of thing in the waist.

      Did Kors steal that neckline from Josh? :)

        I know, right??  That’s the first thing I thought when I saw that.  No wonder they were fawning over him all season, even though his line was crap.

          Oh, sure, like no one ever made a neckline like that before Josh.

      Holy Crap On A Cracker!  That’s some massive WOW right there.  And I normally hate mermaid dresses.  It is a shame about the make-up, but I think the real missed opportunity is the hair. 

      • Anonymous

        I agree about the hair.  When a dress has an interesting neckline, why hide it behind your hair?

      So… did Kors get the idea of the neckline from our favorite little Clinique Counterboy Josh??

      • Anonymous

        The other way around.  This collection from MK hit the runway before Ms. Clinique Counter did her tragic appearance.  It is a little telling as to which of the judges he was hoping to suck up to…….

      She looks like a bombshell here.  But the lines around her month are weird.  But at least we know she didn’t take a knife or a needle to her face!

    • Stefanos Mantyla

      Great body, but the longer I stare, the more I find wrong with it. The body and fit is what apparently takes it into WERQ territory, but the makeup as you said, the gold fabric, which is not very expensive-looking, and the dimples on her face, of which there are too many for some reason. Goes to show how good fit can take one a long way!

      no comments on the hair?!?!  No extensions! Hallelujah!!!

    • CQAussie

      Jennifer looks amazing.  Stunning, in fact.  Also….that dress IS beautiful.  But I am sick to death of the slow SUCK of personality as she loses more and more weight until she ends up a giant head on a stick body.  Look at her – no spark, no sizzle, just skinny bitch in a tight black dress.  Has she eaten anything since July?  And the pin straight BORING AS FUCK hair is just icing on the BORING cake.  Grrr.  I’m sorry, I just hate it that curvy and already BEAUTIFUL women go to Hollywood and all of a sudden decide they have to be a size 00 or the world will fall apart and nobody will ever love them ever ever ever.  OK, rant over, I’m going to go slap someone before I swear on the Internets some more.  

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GQIN74TNNQROY5JFPOWWBGJWEM andy

        Well, she didn’t exactly decide that on her own… She wants to work, Hollywood only wants skinny pretty girls. Therein lies the rub; she has more talent in her finger than most have in their whole bodies, but can’t get cast as anything other than sassy girlfriend because of her weight. Don’t hate the player, hate the game.

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          Once upon a time, Hollywood only wanted WASP girls like Julie Andrews — Streisand held her ground and kept her nose and made it — enough talent, enough brains, and enough spine and you can be the exception.

          It’s a rare combination, though.

          • Anonymous

            Good comparison. Streisand was never zaftig, though. 

    • Jennifer Rosen Heinz

      She needs to stop getting skinnier.  Right now.  

      • Anonymous

        Ay, there’s the rub. For some, it’s fairly easy to get skinny by drastically reducing one’s food intake.  The hard part is normalizing the intake and stabilizing the weight.  I’ve ridden the yo-yo train and it is one scary ride.   For this lovely young woman’s sake, I pray she has a solid for nutrition and exercise plan.

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          IF she’s following the Weight Watchers plan for maintaining, she does — but a lot of people don’t really.

    • MilaXX

      She looks great but I don’t think the hair and makeup are keeping up with the fierceness of the dress.

      That dress looks cheap. Or “chip” as Heidi might say.

      I can’t not say that her smile lines look like double parentheses. I think she’s gorgeous but I can’t ignore the punctuation. It had to be said!

      • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

        Dramatic weight loss tends to spur that on — especially if she didn’t want to have extensive procedures to prevent them.  Everyone always thinks of the sagging skin in the body, but your face (even if you don’t really show weight there) does have a thin fat layer that as it shrinks, your face may not change but the skin certainly does. 

        Such a bummer… That’s where my first smile line came from too…

    • amanda crow

      This is the best she has ever looked! And I don’t mean that in a passive-aggressive “she’s never looked good before” kind of way. This is just “I need to pull out my fainting couch” fantastic!

      Her face looks really oddly plastic here. And the hair looks REALLY flat.  She’s lucky she’s got a slammin’ bod and a fierce dress on because otherwise… this is kind of an “out” for me.

      She looks fantastic…and so tasteful, especially when comparing her to some of her boobtastic past looks.

      I like the minimal makeup look…perhaps a bit more eyeliner and a smokier lid would have punched up the eye a bit. Her lip color works well for her.
