Todrick Hall has made a name for himself online, where his elaborate musical creations regularly draw millions of views.

What the Heck Is Jennifer Hudson Wearing?!?

15 hours ago | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Look, we love Jennifer Hudson around here. She's an amazing singer, humanitarian and mom ... but we need to talk about this outfit.This is what the former "American Idol" contestant-turned-Oscar winner decided to wear to the W Hotels' "Turn It Up For Change" Ball benefiting Lgbt equality on Tuesday night in NYC.With a slit way up her thigh and her black bra exposed for all to see, the 33-year-old mother-of-one certainly showed a lot of skin while wearing what amounts to a black silk robe. She did sing at the event, so maybe this was more of a performance outfit than a red carpet look ... but it was definitely eye-opening.Courtney Love also attended the bash and looked pretty incredible in a sequined dress and some killer hair and makeup. How unexpected, right?What do you think of both their outfits? Sound off below! Read more »
