Jennifer Hudson Heads To The 2016 Met Gala

BEST DRESSED

Jennifer Hudson slayed at the 2016 Met Gala in a white and silk H&M toffee colored gown featuring a long, feathery train. Jen revealed why she wore the H&M gown for her first appearance at the Ball since 2011.

“To me, H&M is a bridge between the everyday girl and the Hollywood girl,” she told People Style. “It represents every girl and every woman, and I feel like we all connect to it. So I feel like I’m representing every girl. I really do.”

“It’s a bit nerve-wracking,” she said of the massive red carpeted stairs. “The stairs they are huge. I swear the bannisters are blocks apart from each other! But I told H&M, ‘Don’t you worry, because I am going to display this dress.’ I’m determined to. I get a little nervous when I think about being in the middle of everything. And this is a dress that you will notice in the middle of everything. So I must be focused and ready.”
