Jennifer Hudson wears brightly coloured outfits when she is 'extremely happy'
Jennifer Hudson only wears bright colours when she is "extremely happy."
The 35-year-old singer songwriter has admitted she chooses her outfits based on her mood and "exudes" her energy through her bold ensembles, which she calls a "colour party", and has revealed when she adorns eye-popping garments it makes her want to "go out and celebrate".
Speaking about her style, the 'Spotlight' hitmaker said: "I dress based on how I feel, and when I put on a bright colour, it means I'm extremely happy. I call it a 'colour party!' It makes me want to go out and celebrate the day. I exude my energy through what I am wearing."
And the powerhouse has revealed she loves a "sleek and classic" style because it is "classy and chic".
She explained: "I like a look that is sleek and classic, like a little black dress, but when you throw a coat over it, you're like, 'Who is that?' It creates this presence, and it's so classy and chic. Next thing you know, you're red carpet ready!"
Jennifer - who won a Grammy Award for Best R&B album in 2009 for her debut LP 'Jennifer Hudson' - has described her style as "traditional" because she regularly wears a brooch to accessorise her outfits and channel the "Old Hollywood vibe".
Speaking about her style, she said: "I'm traditional, and brooches represent that Old Hollywood vibe that I love. My son actually got me into them when he picked one out for me in Niagara Falls. Now I wear them everywhere. I love going to boutiques and finding unique things people have never seen before. I like them to feel really personal."
Meanwhile the star has revealed she is able to "explore" and experiment with clothes more since she lost weight.
She told PEOPLE: "I've made a huge transition [with my weight]. Now I'm able to explore more. I've found that some shapes work for every size, like a high-waisted pencil skirt ... You can dress it up or down, which is how I vibe, because I have so many things to do in a day."
