We really, really tried to convince ourselves on this one. We’re not entirely sure why.
Jenifer Hudson attends the premiere of ‘Call me Crazy’ in West Hollywood, California in a leopard-print blouse paired with a polka-dot mini-skirt and Saint Laurent ankle-strap pumps.
We suppose we wanted to like it because the shape really works for her and because the diva-craziness of it all has a certain sort of appeal to us. But in the end, there’s just way too much going on here. Even if we could accept a leopard print paired with a polka dot -which we might, under the right circumstances – the weird cuffs on the sleeves, with FIVE buttons AND a zipper; the totally unnecessary lapels framing the equally-as-unnecessary bra flash; the buttons on the skirt; the heavy ankle straps; the shimmery hosiery – it’s just overloading the whole look. This just isn’t working for us. But she should take it to a seamstress and have her make 5 copies in various colors, with the details simplified. The shape really does work like gangbusters for her.
