The Bolero That Launched A Thousand Worst Dressed Lists
As Jennifer Hudson stepped onto the red carpet this Sunday, the world seemed to let out a collective Whaaaa? as they laid eyes on the silver bolero that would soon go down in Oscar fashion infamy. Thankfully, didn't make it on stage for her acceptance speech, but it seemed to be on the top of everyone's Worsts lists. Turns out, J-Hud herself might not have been too keen on the accessory, but her stylist for the evening, Vogue Celebrity Editor Andre Leon Talley insisted that she wear the thing. Scandal. Here's more:
"Jennifer was kind of sponsored by Talley and Vogue," said one fashionista. "Andre insisted she wear that hideous Oscar de la Renta dress with the awful, awful gold python bolero.
"Jennifer really didn't want to, and so [noted stylist] Jessica Paster got her a beautiful gold Roberto Cavalli custom-made. But when Andre found out, he went ballistic. Moments before she left for the show, there was a power struggle and Jennifer ended up putting his outfit on."
Awww, well it wasn't so bad. Plus, in a couple of months, her performance will be way more memorable than her jacket, right? Right?
