Jennifer Hudson says losing weight has opened new doors for her into the wonderful world of haute couture.
"I feel like my own little Barbie doll -- I get to dress myself up," Hudson said. "I hated [high] heels before, but that's all I wear now."
People magazine said Hudson's trimmer frame helped land her a recent cover spread on Good Housekeeping, and she's not finished yet.
"Who is this new me?" she said. "I knew how to be the big girl, but now I have to find out how to be this."
