Jennifer Hudson to launch clothing line for QVC

Having fluctuated in dress size herself, Jennifer Hudson says she knows how to dress a variety of body types.

The Weight Watchers spokeswoman has just announced that she’ll hawk fashions for QVC beginning this fall, according to Women’s Wear Daily.

The 30-year-old Oscar and Grammy Award winner will debut her eponymous collection for the home shopping network in September for women of all shapes and sizes, E! reports.

"I feel like I represent every woman," she's said of her new product line, which will be available in sizes 6 through 16. "I've been on both sides of the fence. I've been a big girl and now whatever this is, the average size, whatever you want to call it. But I wanted the clothes to be where any girl could wear it - no matter what size you are - and you could feel comfortable in it."

For its part, QVC says it is thrilled to have the engaged mother of one on board.

"[She] has this great Cinderella story,” said Doug Howe, an exec for the company. “[She’s] an aspiration for different women."

    The average size of a woman isn't a 6. It's a 16. Clue in, Jen. I think your brain got too skinny with the rest of you.

    Funny how she says that she can dress women 'of all sizes' but she's only going to a size 16.

    Just saw a picture of her wearing a T-shirt with 4 mugshots on it before reading this article. Sure hope that's not the direction she'll be going....

    Somehow I bet her line doesn't include swimwear.
