Jennifer Hudson is giving us ‘Old Hollywood Glam’ on the brand new December cover of Oprah’s O Magazine! The timing of the epic cover couldn’t be more on point as Hudson is gearing up to hit the big stage in her debut of the Broadway production of The Color Purple! Speaking of purple- Jhud’s rocking the hell out of her purple dress for this cover! She tells O Mag “Purple is absolutely my favorite color. My closet is purple, my dressing room is purple, and I even love a purple lipstick!” For the editorial Jhud actually rocked three glamorous purple dresses by designers Tadashi Shoji, Kate Spade, and Mandalay!
On her role as the bold and sassy Shug Avery Jhud tells O Mag- “I have butterflies taking on this role, but I like that,” I never second guessed it – I just hopped right in. She is such a different funky character for me and I was very attached to book and the film.” She also dishes how her son David is a huge fan of Broadway and will be right there supporting his mamma to support her through it all.
“We love seeing musicals, We’ve made it to The Lion King and Wicked already. My son says, ‘Mommy, this feels like home!'”
Well there you have it! Peep Jhud’s ravishing editorial pics below!
Jhud is looking phenomenal right?
