It has been over a year since we acknowledged a fashion-forward celebrity mom worthy to receive our elusive Posh Mom Style Icon designation. The last mominista recognized with the honor, which identifies the few who are effortlessly stylish with or without the help of a celebrity stylist, was pop songstress P!nk in 2012. Before her, First Lady Michelle Obama was dubbed an icon in 2011. Other designees include, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Ripa, Victoria Beckham, Tichina Arnold and Christina Milian.
Our newest inductee on the list is an alum finalist of the American Idol TV singing competition and recently severed ties with Weight Watchers, a company for which she served as a spokesperson over the course of her 80+ pound weight loss after giving birth to her son David Otunga, Jr. in August 2009. Since then, Hudson has become a fashion muse for many a designers and has been seen in couture and custom pieces by Roberto Cavalli, Versace, Balmain, Michael Kors, Christian Dior and others as well as some imprints and up and coming design houses.
The singer and Academy Award winner has one of the best stylist team around because they do a wonderful job of outfitting Hudson in clothes to flatter her curvy shape and her relatively tall stature makes it so that she always has clean lines and looks very polished. She experiments with color often and also does patterns and geometric shapes along with various textures. She has a versatile style aesthetic and can wear almost anything.
The Think Like a Man singer has also become a regular fixture on magazine covers and has been one of the few to land a coveted Vogue cover.
Recently, the Dream Girls and Winnie biopic actress trimmed her locs and forewent wearing wigs and extensions and has been able to carry off the chic look well and show off her elongated neck line well. It was an A+ move. As we all know, not everyone can get away with short hair.
The multi-award nominated and winning artist balances a music and acting career, several charities, spokesperson duties and touring all while caring for her son and being a partner to long-time fiance David Otunga, and supporting her family still recuperating from a devastating loss of Hudson’s mom, nephew and brother a few years back.
The Spotlight singer is currently working on her third studio album “It’s Your World” to be released in the coming year.
But she handles it all with style and grace and for this reason, we have selected her to join our other elite and limited listing of celebrity posh mom style icons.
