Jennifer Hudson deserves waaay more than just our makeover of the year award: The Grammy and Oscar winner not only went from a 16 to a svelte size 6, she also had a baby, planned a wedding and cut a new album! So how is she commemorating all of this change? In addition to a self-confessed shopping problem, she told us: “I’m actually thinking about shaving my head. I am! Because I feel I’ve got a good structure now [gingerly feels cheekbones]. My cousin’s a beautician, and she always tells me, ‘You could wear any hairdo.’ So I’m thinking, What if I shave my hair? Not completely off, but low. I think that would be so hot.” And while reaching her goal weight hasn’t been a piece of cake, she’s confident that she got it just right. “I don’t want to lose any more weight, and you’re never going to see me skinny. I think this is a good, natural size for me. David [Hudson’s fiancĂ©] doesn’t like change. He tells me I have no breasts anymore. He tries to feed me.” Want more scoop on Hudson’s incredible makeover? Check out the new issue of InStyle Makeover, on newsstands this Friday.
