Jennifer Hudson Covers Redbook Magazine’s December 2012 Issue; Speaks On Weight Loss And Her Clothing Line

Grammy Award winning singer and Oscar Award winning actress Jenifer Hudson flaunts her cute shape on Redbook Magazine’s December 2012 issue. Hudson styled in a sparkly dress in her Ruven Afandor photo shoot. Inside, she speaks on her weight loss and clothing line. Below are some highlights:

On her weight loss: “I’m getting used to my new self more than anything else. I got used to being plus-sized and knowing how to be that, whereas this is like, ‘Okay, who am I?’ I keep thinking that I probably need an extra-large or a large and the stylist is like, ‘No, you need a medium or a small.'”

On her own clothing line: “I know what I like, and that’s what it’s all about. It’s like, who’s your fashion icon? Me. And no one but you knows what you feel most comfortable in. I look at each piece and think, ‘Could I wear that as big Jennifer or could I wear that now?’ I want to consider every girl.”

Celebs In Paris: Frank Ocean Hangs Out With Fashion Designer Karl Lagerfeld In The City Of Light

R&B singer Frank Ocean has been quiet since confirming his bisexuality and the released of his chart-topping Chanel Orange album. The Def Jam signee booked a flight and flew to Paris to hang out with upscale fashion brands Chanel and Fendi’s creative director Karl Lagerfeld. The twosome was photo’d together at a Chanel event in the City of Light. It is good to see that the fashion industry is embracing the R&B and Hip-Hop culture. I think it will be dope to see Frank and Karl collaborate on a line together. Any thoughts?

BBWLA Laura Govan Photo Spread With Kontrol Magazine; She Speaks On Not Being Perfect & Calls Jackie “Kooky”

BBWLA reality star Laura Govan recently did a photo spread and interview with Kontrol Magazine. In the Dimitri Crowder shoot, Laura styled in a few nice looking dresses and polka dot sandals. Inside, she talked about not being perfect, shared her true feeling on Jackie and much more. Below are some highlights:

On going back and correcting her mistakes:

“If I make a mistake or I feel like I have bad judgment then I try to go back and correct it.”

On her feeling toward BBWLA cast-member Jackie:

I don’t think she’s a backstabber. I just think that she’s kooky in all the ways of just being crazy. That’s just who she is. I think when people see her they say ‘hi’ and ‘bye.’ From what I assume, that’s it. I really made a friend in Imani and Malaysia this past season. I would say that’s about it.”
