It was reported some weeks ago that Jennifer Hudson had done a photo shoot for Vogue Magazine and now official word has come down that Jen not only did a shoot but will also be gracing the cover of the March issue.Rumor has it that Andre Leon Talley himself oversaw the session which was shot by Annie Lebowitz at the Apollo Theater and also includes original Supremes member, Mary Wilson.No pics have been made available so far but when they are we will of course post them here.
Vogue Editor Anna Wintour is not known for putting Black women on the cover of her magazine and definitely not a full figured one.The last Black woman to grace the cover was Halle Berry back in 2002 and I believe Oprah Winfrey, who was forced to drop 50 pounds, some years before that.
I don’t usually buy Vogue regardless of who is on the cover but I will definitely pick up this issue just to support Jennifer.
[Update] I just got these pics of Jennifer below but I cannot say for sure what they are for or when they were taken.
[Update2] Photos from Jennifer’s shoot were released today and I have added them below.
