Jennifer Hudson suited up to debut her wax figure for Madame Tussauds New York.

The “Respect” actress wore a deep red suit for the occasion. The suede set featured a double-breasted blazer with pointed lapels, as well as wide-leg pants. Hudson layered a black bustier top under her suit, which featured rolled-up long sleeves. She also added edgy accessories to her look, pairing it with a gunmetal chain bracelet, two delicate gold bracelets and layered gunmetal necklaces.

The “Dreamgirls” star continued her edgy streak with sleek sandals. The black patent style featured thin toe straps, as well as pointed-toe soles and stiletto heels that appeared to total at least 4 inches in height. However, the pair’s greatest statement came from the toe straps, which included gold chain accents.

Suiting has grown as a trend to make any look instantly sharp. Hudson’s suede suit’s tone and material are ideal for fall, thanks to their dark colors and lightweight material. She isn’t the only star to don a business-worthy suit recently; Avril Lavigne, Lea Michele and Katie Holmes have all been spotted in sets by Area, Christian Siriano and Alice + Olivia this week, as well.

When it comes to fashion, the Grammy Award-winning singer leans towards bright and colorful gowns from luxury brands like Zuhair Murad, Dolce and Gabbana and DSquared2 on the red carpet. She even wore a voluminous red AZ Factory gown on the red carpet to the 2021 Met Gala earlier this week. Hudson can often be seen in shoes that are equally statement-making, like strappy sandals and pointed-toe pumps by Giuseppe Zanotti, Sophia Webster and Jimmy Choo. However, she also wears footwear by emerging designers as well, like Titi Adesa — whose sandals she donned for an interview with Oprah Winfrey last month.
