Jennifer Hudson’s new album JHUD is out today! And in celebration of her newest release, we thought we’d take a look back at her transformation from budding singer on American Idol to glamorous Oscar winner and sleek R&B diva. We all fell in love with Jennifer during her time on Idol, when her style was all cute girly dresses. And while she didn’t break the Top Five during her season, she ended up scooping up a Best Supporting Actress Oscar just a few years later, wearing a gorgeous gold gown to match her new status in life.

Since then, Jennifer has been taking more and more fashion risks, opting for sleek bobs and messy braids to match her svelte figure. She experiments with bustiers and bondage dresses, all to compliment her somewhat recent hair chop — yes, she can rock an edgy pixie cut. No matter what turn Jennifer’s style takes, we’re always going to be in love with that incredible voice — just as we have been for the past decade.
