Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson hit the red carpet earlier this week for the LA premiere of Respect, a biopic on the late legend Aretha Franklin. J.Hud stunned in a custom purple sequined Dolce & Gabbana gown, channeling the Queen of Soul.
Franklin personally picked the two-time Grammy winner to play her, one that Hudson calls her dream role. “For her to pick me to do this is beyond a blessing, a dream, an honor,” Hudson said on the big night.
