Jennifer Hudson's 'Project Runway' Jumpsuit Shows Up Heidi Klum (PHOTOS)

Confession: we haven't seen "Project Runway" in a while, limiting our consumption to the rare scandals (contestants fleeing, bullying, etc) that crop up each season. But today we found a completely positive, uplifting reason to tune in: Jennifer Hudson joined the judges for today's live runway show and she looked a-mah-zing. Like, so amazing she blew Heidi Klum out of the water.

How is it possible that the "American Idol" alum outshone the telegenic supermodel under the bright lights of the runway? By dressing to perfection.

After the models walked the catwalk in the three finalists' collections, Jennifer, Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Michael Kors posed for photos on the runway. On the left was Heidi in a seriously plunging, cut-out sequin gown (perfect for daytime, right); on the right, Nina in an elegant but restrained LBD embellished with crystal detailing; and in the center, Jennifer in a head-to-toe aqua jumpsuit and matching blazer.

Her figure looked amazing, the color popped, she was trendy yet tasteful... honestly, we have no words.

Check out photos -- do you think J-Hud outdressed Heidi and Nina?
