Jennifer Hudson Wears Leopard Short Shorts At Taste Of Chicago Festival: Yea Or Nay? (PHOTOS, POLL)

Who wears short shorts? Jennifer Hudson does.

The award-winning singer/actress hit the stage in a pair of sassy leopard-print shorts to perform in her hometown Wednesday night at the 2012 Taste of Chicago festival.

Hudson paired the cheeky bottoms with a leather peplum top and glammed-up combat boots for an edgy look. To add a bit modesty to the potentially overly-revealing ensemble, she threw on a pair of sheer black tights under the shorts.

J.Hud's slimmed-down frame is plenty reason to get a bit more daring when it comes to her personal style -- if we'd lost 80 pounds, we'd probably be strutting around in hot pants, too -- but we're not quite sure if we're feeling this look. On the other hand, there's the print to take into consideration. The last time we spotted the 30-year-old star wearing leopard, It was a complete fashion fail.

Fingers crossed that Jennifer's new QVC clothing line doesn't take a walk on the wild side; she should probably lay off the animal prints for a while. What do you think?
