Jennifer Hudson literally became a star before all of our eyes during the past decade. Not letting her loss on the third season of American Idol detour her dreams of stardom, Hudson bounced back from her exit from the reality singing competition with a role in Dreamgirls that solidified her rise as a voice and an actress to be reckoned with.

Since that time, we’ve seen the Chicago native land big screen roles in Sex & the City, The Secret Life of Bees and Black Nativity, make her Broadway debut in the 2015 revival of The Color Purple, and churn out Grammy nominated album after album. And we watched her do all of this while overcoming personal family tragedy, giving birth to a son, and maintaining an amazing weight loss of 80 pounds since 2011.

J Hud has proven time and time again, there’s nothing she can’t do. And judging from her style, we’d say there’s also very little she can’t wear. On her 36th birthday today, we take a look back at the fabulously fashionable way Jennifer Hudson has maintained her stellar figure.
