Jennifer Hudson Strikes a Pose on InStyle’s August 2021 Cover

Not even a pandemic could bring InStyle to a grinding halt. The magazine dropped buzzworthy covers featuring Jennifer Lopez, Andra Day and Salma Hayek over recent months. Now Jennifer Hudson joins its A-list roster with the singer and actress fronting the August 2021 issue. Captured by Chrisean Rose and styled by Law Roach, Jennifer wears pieces from Miu Miu’s Fall 2021 collection serving up a modern spin on 20s glamour for the newsstand cover image.

Unfortunately, the cover proved to be a major disappointment. “I was very excited at the prospect of a Jennifer Hudson cover, but good god…what in the hell is this?” asked aracic.

“The saddest part about this is the absolute waste of Jennifer Hudson,” Benn98 pointed out.

“We don’t exactly get Jennifer Hudson on the covers of fashion magazines every year and we end up with this? Law Roach has to be the most overrated stylist working today!” echoed vogue28.

Urban Stylin shared the same sentiment: “They did her bad with this cover looks more like a tired woman who just did a double shift.”

“Terrible. They did her dirty here, come on! InStyle can do much better!” proclaimed WAVES.

“When a woman is badass, don’t shoot her like she’s needing to sit down from standing in those shoes,” voiced tigerrouge.

“Needs more life! I’m a bit disappointed, it’s always nice to see Jennifer getting embraced by fashion, but this ain’t it,” said FashionMuseDior.
