Jennifer’s Outfit Pays Homage to ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ Character Hilary Banks
Fashion November 03, 2022
Jennifer Hudson found the right moment to wear a pair of jeans — and did so while interviewing “beloved” guest Alfonso Ribeiro!
On Thursday’s episode of “The Jennifer Hudson Show,” JHud looked casual yet chic in an ALIX NYC bodysuit, Maje cardigan, and Cotton Citizen denim.
Last week when Jenn interviewed the hilarious Cedric the Entertainer, stylist Verneccia “V” Étienne said Jenn was waiting for the right moment to wear a great pair of jeans but instead opted for a Levi’s denim corset belt.
Jenn “gushed with excitement” when she tried on the Cotton Citizen denim, V said.

“[The jeans] sat in the back of her closet waiting for the perfect guest, and it was Alfonso Ribeiro,” V explained.
V said that when Jenn found out she would be interviewing Alfonso — who played “beloved” Carlton in “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” — she wanted to wear an outfit that reminded her of another “beloved character” from the show, Hilary Banks!
In the iconic sitcom, Carlton’s sister Hilary — played by Karyn Parsons — was known for her fabulous, upscale fashion.

“What a great way to pay homage through fashion!” V added.
Jenn accessorized her look with custom boots from Etsy retailer Bling Things by Meg, which sells designer Megan Mann’s bedazzled items — from sneakers to iPhone cases.
In the premiere episode of “The Jennifer Hudson Show,” Jennifer wore pink and white Nike shoes featuring Megan’s design while she interviewed her former “American Idol” judge Simon Cowell.
