Women of Style: JHUD and Miley

I have been watching The Voice on NBC and I am totally mesmerized by Jennifer Hudson and Miley Cyrus. Not only are these two young women vocal powerhouses, but they are both beautiful and have their own unique style. I typically only spotlight one woman in this monthly “Woman of Style” feature, except for when I featured my favorite looks from the Oscars and the Emmys. I know these two ladies may be a mismatched pair for this “Woman of Style” feature, but their passion for both their music and their fashion make them perfect to be featured together as this month’s “Women of Style”.

Jennifer first popped up on my radar when she was on American Idol in 2004. In 2006, she went on to win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Effie White in Dreamgirls, a role which also garnered her 28 other awards from film critics. She has appeared in other movies {including Sex and the City and The Secret Life of Bees} and had guest roles on several TV shows {including Smash and Empire}. She was the first Africa-American singer to grace the cover of Vogue. Her 2012 autobiography detailed her weight loss journey, and earlier this year, she released her fourth album, aptly named JHUD. I don’t think I would have considered myself a fan of JHud, although she has an amazing voice, but since watching her on The Voice, I am now a fan of hers.

Miley is most notably known in some circles as Hannah Montana, but in other circles she is known as the twerking, gyrating, child star Hannah Montana who went off into the deep end of trying to find herself. Those crazy years – between the first time she dated Liam Hemsworth {they reportedly broke up in mid-2013) to her now being “engaged” to Liam Hemsworth – were controversial and full of wild and crazy outfits, photos of her smoking a bong, and even some photos of her kissing another female. But Miley has returned to her roots, in a way, with her latest album, Malibu. She had a boho country style in her early years, followed by some wild/grunge/punk/way-out-there years. And although her style is still kind of “out there” at times, she also shows a toned-down style, which is a nice mix of her boho country style and wild side. Miley really is a natural beauty, and just like Jennifer, she has an amazing voice.

These two young women have so much more flair than I could put in today’s post, so go check out more of their unique, individual styles in any fashion magazine they may be featured in, or check them out on Pinterest. I could have literally lost myself in Pinterest looking at their photos!
