Jennifer Hudson gathered her girlfriends for a walk around Beverly Hills yesterday. She and her pals spent the afternoon with her young son, David Otunga Jr., who has been by his mom's side practically nonstop over the past week between their quick getaways and rigorous award season schedule. Jennifer was solo, though, when she helped lead the reddish trend on the star-studded carpet at the Academy Awards. Her V-necked Atelier Versace number was a hit, and Jennifer went on to have a ball in the ceremony and at the afterparties — check out some of her post-show fun in our top 15 candid photos roundup! Jennifer's little one has been her main man recently, but she recently told fans on Twitter that she's absolutely still engaged to his father, David Otunga.
Jennifer Hudson brought along her son, David Otunga Jr., as her date to Essence magazine's annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon yesterday in LA. Little David dressed up for the event in his adorable vest and tie, while Jennifer continued showing off the hard-earned results of her new workout regimen in a tight purple dress. David and Jennifer are in California again after a quick trip away last week. The meal, which also brought out Viola Davis, Forrest Whitaker, Jesse Williams, and Gabrielle Union, was Jennifer's latest stop during award season. The Oscar winner also hit the Grammys two weeks ago, taking the stage to sing a tribute to Aretha Franklin after wowing in a chic Versace number on the red carpet.
