Two years on and more than 80 pounds down, Jennifer Hudson is no longer focused on weight loss. The Academy Award winner has revealed she is done with shedding pounds and wants the world to know, so people can stop telling her not to get too skinny. The Dream Girls star has gone from a size 16 to a size six since teaming up with Weight Watchers in 2010, but says she is happy to be her new size now and forever. "I'm at the weight I want to be," the 31-year-old says.

"But I hear all the time, 'Don't lose any more weight, you need to stop.' People are under the impression that I'm still losing but I'm not," the Chicago native told the December issue of Redbook magazine. Looking festive in a long-sleeved but flirty white and silver minidress with sparkling peep-toe heels and emerald green drop earrings, the singer and actress said while she loves her new body sometimes she forgets she is half the girl she used to be.

"I'm getting used to my new self more than anything else," she tells the magazine. "I got used to being plus-sized and knowing how to be that, whereas this is like, 'Okay, who am I?' I keep thinking that I probably need an extra-large or a large and the stylist is like, 'No, you need a medium or a small.'"

Bunny girl... with a twist!

Halloween may be a twinkling memory fading into the distant past, but Queen Beyoncé has decided to extend our enjoyment by treating us to a glimpse of how she spent All Hallow's Eve. The mother-of-one uploaded a picture of herself dressed as the famously tardy white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, and shots of her wearing a pair of fangs... diamond fangs, to be exact. The 31-year-old looked incredible as the fluffy literary anti-hero in a navy blazer with gold button detailing, a crisp white shirt and a silver bow tie. The obligatory bunny ears obviously looked chic on the Crazy in Love star, as did a pair of red-hot round glasses. A gold fob watch took pride of place on the navy blazer, B's burgundy talons holding it in place.

Lovesick Kanye West

Kanye West stopped everything to join the woman he loves. The lovestruck rapper jumped on a plane and flew all the way to Kim Kardashian's hotel door in London. In the early hours of Thursday morning the Mercy singer was spotted rushing into the grand Dorchester Hotel wearing black sweats and grey trainers, obviously the same clothes he'd worn during the long flight. Kanye, 35, had a cell phone pressed to his ear so perhaps he had girlfriend Kim on the line already, alerting her to his presence. Kim and her sister Kourtney arrived at London's Heathrow Airport on Wednesday morning and headed straight to their hotel with Kourtney's children, Mason, two, and baby Penelope, four months. "Just touched down in London-town," Kim tweeted excitedly en route to The Dorchester.
