I am a big advocate of fuller-figured gals wearing fitted clothes. But this takes it a bit far. Jennifer Hudson looks like she can’t even breathe in this dress. Poor girl!

A few comments on the plus side: The color is lovely and the vertical stripes are slimming. But on the downside, the skirt feels a tad long and, oh yeah, it is TOO SMALL! Ripples along the waist and hips will never look good, her poor maracas are screaming for a little air, and her hairdo is dismal.

JHud does much better when she isn’t trying to be Sarah Jessica Parker.

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.
