Jennifer Hudson is casual in leggings, green jacket and baseball cap to catch a flight ... a day after glamming up for Walk Of Fame ceremony

Jennifer Hudson was glowing with radiance when she celebrated her star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame just 24 hours earlier.

And the 32-year-old actress was still walking on cloud nine as she arrived at Los Angeles International Airport ahead of her flight on Thursday.

She was amazingly svelte in skintight black leggings and a matching, loose-fitting black top, along with a sporty green jacket that was embossed with a pair of wings.

The Dreamgirls star added patent leather black boots and a quilted handbag, while a black cap was perched stylishly atop her short-cropped hairdo.

She was even dropped off in style, arriving in a large chauffeur-driven SUV.

It had been a whirlwind two-day trip, but one that Jennifer will no doubt remember.

She was a teary bundle of gratitude in Hollywood on Wednesday at the unveiling of her very own Walk Of Fame star.

On that occasion, Jennifer was a leggy wonder in a white frock and white and clear high heels.

Even with that short hemline, Jennifer had no qualms taking a pew on the starry sidewalk to pose next to her gold emblazoned moniker.

Jennifer looked like she couldn't believe her eyes as she placed a hand on the burnished stone.

She had been joined at the celebration by her fiancé, wrestling champ David Otunga, and their four-year-old son, David Jr., as well as her sister Julia.

It was a bittersweet ceremony for Jennifer, whose mother, brother and nephew were shot and killed by Julia's ex-husband in October 2008.

What an honour: Jennifer received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday and she was dressed for the occasion in a lovely white mini-dress and chic heels

Jennifer has persevered in spite of the personal tragedy, and her career has flourished.

Next for Jennifer is a role in the forthcoming drama Lullaby, due out in US theatres in December.     

She plays a nurse in the film about a man who, long estranged from his family, learns that his father has chosen to take himself off life support within 48 hours.

Who on earth decided it was a good idea to write an article about this? Utter buffoonery! More pictures of Taylor Swift instead, I think you will agree.

Taylor Swift is notorious for bad live vocals. Jennifer Hudson has sung the national anthem at the Superbowl.

True,she deserves it but they´re not given,the celebrity has to put their name down for one and if they´re chosen they have to pay a lot of cash for it.

Please, what is her talent? Dieting? Just so you know, the Star on Hollywood is no big deal anymore. Also, the Star"s actually have to pay a small fee to ge tone. Sooner or later, she gonna look like her big momma sister.

It seems they are just giving stars to anyone. Jennifer is talented but I thought they give it to those who had had some kind of career longevity. Its not even been a decade yet with her. But oh well.

She's an Academy Award winner. What do you have besides cellulite and a negative heart.

She's an Academy Award winning actress. What do you have besides cellulite and a negative heart. Life's too short to be hating on a woman who's about being positive and an inspiration to many young girls and women.
