Academy Museum of Motion Pictures Opening Gala: Jennifer Hudson in Alexandre Vauthier: IN or OUT?

Posted on September 27, 2021

After a long day of opinionating on some seriously high-glamour looks, we’re going to turn this one over to y’all for the final say; partially because we need some battery-recharging time and partially because we’re way too biased against one part of this dress for anyone to trust our assessment of it.



We’re anti-fringe, darlings. We’re sorry, but we can only be as God made us and we have to be honest about it. Even though we kinda love this dress for getting her a bit away from the Aretha drag she’s been sporting of late, we also can’t help thinking of car washes when we look at it. And we’re not convinced those super-matchy shoes were the right choice. They make it look more like a dance costume than a red carpet look.

Buy hey, we warned you we were biased. You make the call here:
