Jennifer Hudson, 41, smiled from ear to ear as she waved to onlookers while arriving at the Jimmy Kimmel Live show in Hollywood on Monday.
The Respect Actress – who became the 17th person to attain EGOT status in August – looked stylish as she made her way into the studios wearing a chic striped mini dress that showed off her legs paired with fuzzy purple slippers.
Her dark hair was cut just below her shoulders and styled straight with a center part.
The beauty flashed her brilliant white smile and opted for a glamorous makeup palette with cat-eye liner and a touch of lip stick.
Hudson extended her arms from under a black blazer that covered her shoulders as she showed off her bright turquoise nails while making her way down the street.

Her appearance on the show comes a month after the singer confirmed her relationship with rapper Common, 50, amid persistent dating rumors.
The loved-up couple bonded while playing husband and wife in the upcoming action thriller Breathe.
The plot follows a mother, Maya (Hudson), and her daughter, who are forced to live underground in a post-apocalyptic world after Earth is uninhabitable due to a lack of oxygen.
Hudson’s character can make short trips to the surface in a state-of-the-art oxygen suit made by Maya’s husband, Darius (Common), whom she presumes to be dead.
Hudson and Common were first romantically linked one year after he split from comedian Tiffany Haddish after 16 months of dating.
Common has never been married but is father to 24-year-old daughter Omoye Lynn, whom he shares with ex Kim Jones. The rapper/actor previously had several high-profile relationships, including Serena Williams, Erykah Badu, Taraji P. Henson, and Angela Rye.
Jennifer shares her son David, 13, with ex-fiance, wrestler David Otunga – whom she split from in 2017.
In October, Hudson was named one of Glamour’s Women of the Year alongside Angela Bassett, Aurora James, HAIM and more, along with a cover story.
The magazine’s annual honor began in 1990 and is awarded to women who have defined each year as visionaries, rule breakers and trailblazers.
For the cover, Jennifer wowed in a shimmery blue dress that cascaded to the floor.
