Jennifer Hudson looks slimmer and trimmer than ever

23 March 2011

The actress has had one of the biggest weight loss transformations ever, but on Monday night, Jennifer Hudson’s toned and trim figure really dropped jaws.

 

 

The ‘Dreamgirls’ star showed off her svelte physique with an optical illusion dress that hugged her curves in all the right places while making her appear leaner than ever.  The black and white zig-zag pattern draws in the eye to her tiny waist.

More celebrity weight loss transformations

The 29-year-old was pictured in New York City at the launch of her newest album, ‘I Remember Me’. The album is a follow-up to her 2008 self-titled debut, which came on the back of an Oscar win for ‘Dreamgirls’.
The Oscar winner says her new trim physique is all thanks to the Weight Watchers diet and exercising five days a week, which helped her drop from a US size 16 to a size six.

In February, Hudson appeared on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ and said she’d lost 80 pounds thanks to the popular weight loss plan.

"It's like a brand new me," she told Winfrey. "Sometimes I don't even recognize myself."

She said she decided to lose the weight while she was pregnant with her now two-year-old son.

The singer says she prepares all of her food and engages in lots of cardiovascular exercise like basketball, jump rope and workouts on the treadmill.

Dozens of Hudson's family and friends from across the US joined her on the weight loss challenge, and it was revealed that collectively the group had lost 1,935 pounds.
