American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson boasts a classically beautiful visage, not to mention an impressively toned body. The singer recently put those two attributes on display while taking on the role of Tiana for a stunning Disney portrait.
Disney is in the midst of putting together a Dream Portrait series, in which talented artists take real people and turn them into fairy tale princesses. Their latest featured beauty? None other than Jennifer Hudson, a beautiful Tiana lookalike from The Princess And The Frog. Now, with the help of the new portrait, Jennifer is Tiana not in voice, but in appearance. Photographer Annie Leibovitz put her skills to good use, capturing a truly magical moment. Appropriately enough, the caption for the portrait reads, “Where you always follow your heart.” After all, gotta have the standard Disney jargon!
Jennifer Hudson says that she was definitely eager to be a part of the Disney Dream Portrait project. “What made me want to be a part of this project is … (playing) the first black Disney princess!” And it’s true Jennifer did make history when she played Tiana, so it’s only right that she would do so again with her stunning portrait!
Of course, Jennifer’s just one of many prominent actresses to take part in the Dream Portrait project, with such familiar faces as Queen Latifah, Olivia Wilde and Scarlett Johansson also receiving the princess treatment. Okay, okay, Olivia Wilde and Queen Latifah actually received the villain treatment, as they played the witch from Snow White and Ursula from The Little Mermaid.
