What was with Jennifer Hudson’s dress at the Grammy’s on Sunday?
I’m the furthest away from being relevant in any fashion circle and I have fallen casualty to my share of fashion misfires (I can vividly recall dressing myself for my grade 6 class photo. I was decked out in yellow pants, a blue shirt and a leather tie. One kid in the class asked me if I bought my pants at a yard sale. Undeterred by my fashion mistake, I punched him the nose. Adding some blood splatter to my ugly yellow pants. But I digress) but really what was Hudson thinking about with this get up?
(Blog Note: Before some of you jump down my throat about her recent run of family tragedy, I get it and I my heart goes out to her and her family. But that doesn’t preclude her from criticism, dig it?)
Without a word of a lie I turned to the First Lady when Hudson stood up to accept her award and declared “Oh my god I think 1 of 2 things has just occurred”.
- She had an emergency dental procedure done right before the telecast and forgot to take off the mandatory dentist paper splash guard. OR
- She was running late from the pre ceremony meal and forgot to untuck her napkin that was dangling from her neck line.
In either case were true I could offer Hudson a pass. C’mon that could happen to anyone. However I am told this wasn’t the case and she was of sound mind. What is more astonishing is that she was lauded for her gown selection in some parts. Thus proving again, what the heck do I know?
