Under $150: Jennifer Hudson in Abstract Elie Tahari

A radiant Jennifer Hudson was spotted in New York City at the 13th Annual Saks Fifth Avenue "Key to the Cure" campaign event wearing an Elie Tahari dress that perfectly fit her newly svelte body.

Why We're Obsessed:  Jennifer's dress was a perfect combination of textures and hues. The colorful threads created a wonderful hatching pattern, and the silk abstract bodice kept her look young and playful.

Adding the basic black peep toe pumps,  Jennifer creates a sleek finish to the her textured, bold dress choice.

We also love that she chose to coat her nails in red—it adds just the right amount of pop!

How To Get This Look: To become a texture and pattern blending pro like J-Hud, try on this Chaus tweed skirt with forest tone threads, a BKE Burnout Dolman Top, a pair of Charles Albert black peep toe pumps, and to add pop,  paint your nails with "Laquered Up" by Essie.

John Galliano's Verdict: Guilty As Charged

John Galliano

John Galliano’s fate was decided today in a Parisian Court.

The verdict?  Guilty as charged.

The 50-year-old British designer (formerly for Dior and his eponymous label) was on trial for making anti-Semitic and racist statements.

Galliano admitted drug and alcohol abuse was why he made his “I Love Hitler” comments. In France, insulting a person based on their race or religion is a crime.

The punishment for Galliano?

A fine of $23,200 in court fees as well as a suspended $8,400 fine. The maximum charge for a crime like Galliano’s is a fine  around $32,000 and 6 months in jail.

If you’re thinking his punishment was a slap on the wrist, consider this: The $24,600 fine Galliano must pay, pales in comparison to the price Galliano has already paid for making foolish statements publicly.

He’s lost his job, his reputation, his career, probably friends, and Padmé called him disgusting, publicly. Not to mention his record is forever stained.

Will he rebound? Who knows?  Like the rest of us, Galliano IS replaceable.

But as disgusting as his comments were, I must say, thank God we live in America where we can say what we want freely.
