At Thursday's Essence Black Women in Hollywood luncheon, Jennifer Hudson showed off her amazingly svelte figure in a curve-hugging violet Roland Mouret dress paired with Jimmy Choo suede pumps, but her best accessory was her 18-month-old son, David Daniel Otunga Jr.

Jennifer's little cutie stole the show as he rocked the red carpet in a pin-stripe vest and pale purple shirt -- which perfectly color-coordinated with his mom's outfit! Hudson joked with "Entertainment Tonight" that her son was a natural in the spotlight. "He loves it. He's my date tonight!"
In front of a crowd that included Kimora Lee Simmons, Serena Williams, Vanessa Williams, Gabrielle Union, and Kerry Washington, Hudson was honored along with fellow performers Loretta Devine, Angela Bassett, and Viola Davis. The event traditionally singles out women whose work has inspired positive images of black women around the world.
Check out the video for Jennifer's new song, "Where You At," below. (And no, that's not a typo. For some reason JHud neglected to add a question mark at the end of the song title.)
