Jennifer Hudson recently announced that she designed an eponymous collection for QVC. And last night, the Oscar-winning American Idol alum gave us a first peek at the looks! “I wanted to focus on being comfortable, but being cute at the same time,” she told InStyle.com. “I was [inspired by] Michael Kors, because I feel that he focuses on the ‘real woman,’ you know? Every curve.” Hudson’s lineup boasts classic styles like cozy sheaths, tailored coats, and slimming leggings—”I am loving those,” she said—all for less than $170. Click through to preview the Jennifer Hudson Collection for QVC, launching this Fashion’s Night Out, September 6th.
Dakota Fanning showed off her summer style in a Topshop swan-print skirt and matching cut-out top while out and about in Los Angeles this week. While her cropped tank has sold out, we think her swingy mini would look equally great with a simple white blouse. Score the style for $68 at topshop.com.

Don’t call it Big Ben—it’s now Elizabeth Tower! Parliament just approved the London landmark’s renaming in honor of Queen Elizabeth‘s Diamond Jubilee—her 60th year on the throne. Fun fact: “Ben” only refers to the giant bell at the top of the tower, though the nickname has extended to the entire structure in recent years. So technically, it hasn’t had a proper name until now—and perfect timing, too. Congrats, Lilibet! Click through for our favorite moments from the Diamond Jubilee.
