May 28, 2008 at 7:40 pm (Jennifer Hudson, Metallic) ()

There seems to be a boom in the metallic fabrics — and, more often than not, I don’t like it. It is really hard to make a metallic fabric not seem too cheap/glitzy/1982/solid gold dancer.

I love that Jennifer Hudson embraces her figure. And I love fuller-figured women wearing clothes that fit, rather than a shapeless muumuu.

But I don’t love this dress. The cut (other than the neckline) is ok, but you need to wear sunglasses to look at it, and the stripe detail on the sleeve looks matronly.

Most of all, I don’t like the neckline. I wouldn’t mind a little of the bustier peeking out (although that look is a little dated) but this bosom-baring cut doesn’t connect with the otherwise demure dress cut.
