Jennifer Hudson’s Slim Braid

MyOWnjudge - Jennifer HudsonJennifer Hudson was looking regal in purple as she performed for the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education’s 15th Grand Slam for Children benefit concert held at the Wynn Las Vegas. Her purple Michael Kors gown hugged all her slimmer curves to a T. Sure the neckline and shoulders looked a bit plain, but the bright purple made up for all errors.

The singing bird had a subtle smokey eye with a neutral glossy lip and a matching mani. Her nails looked like they could’ve had China Glaze in Grape Pop on. Right before she went out the door, she must’ve taken a quick look in the mirror and seen how great she looked, so she made sure her hair looked fab as well.

A severe side part with a sleek wave into a braid on one side and some wispy waves on the other end. Want to do it yourself?

  1. Brush your hair and style as usual (use either a curling or flattening tool to create subtle waves).
  2. Create an uneven part, taking about 80% of the hair to the side you want the braid on. The remainder will be your sultry wisps.
  3. Use the rest of your hair to create the braid. Start braiding at the nape of your neck, shifting in a diagonal to the front. 
  4. Use a color similar to your hair color to secure the braid.
  5. As always – use some shine spray to keep it glossy (my favorite is Palmers).

Do you like it enough to recreate it?

Hot Mama!

BET Awards 2010 Alicia KeysMy honey and I have a running joke that pregnancy is as contagious as the flu. When we are at family functions he jokes about holding too many children and when we go to Babies R’ Us to buy gifts for showers we kid about something being in the air. So you wouldn’t find it hard to imagine that watching the BET Awards was full of storytelling between us!

Miss soon to be Mrs.Kasseem Dean (Swizz Beatz) aka Alicia Keys is Miss Baby Bump performer of the moment. She hit the stage in a minidress and high heels that I would think twice about rocking and I have no bun in this oven.

Alicia Keys rocked out to her own songs, followed by a tribute to Prince and got on top of a piano no less! If you asked me, the first dress was a bit too short for that belly, but being that she looked so darn gorgeous, I’d say this is one of those times when the preggo lady is always right!
