A few weeks back, an email popped up in my inbox reading “INVITE: Jennifer Hudson – Dallas Wedding Singer?” Curious and confused, I clicked on the bolded banner to realize that Addison had forwarded me the email from the SMUStyle account, and what followed was an invite to cover the incredible event that took place last Wednesday, July 8. The email didn’t include many details, but generally explained that W Hotels had teamed up with the Human Rights Campaign to celebrate the courts ruling on same-sex marriage. The two came together to throw a wedding for an anonymous gay couple in Dallas, and would be flying Jennifer Hudson out to surprise and perform for the grooms after the ceremony. Being the only SMUStylist (is that a thing?) currently in the Dirty D and the one whose most influenced by the gay rights movement, it was obvious that I would be in attendance.
Today the pictures of
Bruce Caitlyn Jenner for the cover of Vanity Fair were released and…(fill in the blank). The Bruce Jenner and Diane Sawyer interview left everyone with a lot of questions but pretty much publicly confirmed the obvious. Today the game changed: a) I totally missed when anybody announced that this was happening; b) what girl-Bruce would look like was one of the most difficult questions to answer from the whole ordeal; and c) she’s fierce!?
