Sure, black and orange don’t have to be exclusive to Halloween, but we just can’t shake that spooky feeling when we spot the two hues together.

On Wednesday, October 24, Season 3 American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson channeled the upcoming holiday when she attended the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note II in NYC. To complete her bejeweled turtleneck, leather skirt, and $1345 Versace platform boots, Jen kept warm with a dramatic cape in a fiery safety cone orange.

In fact, the whole outfit, regardless of color, looked rather witchy to us. But just like most things in life, Jennifer pulled it off!

Are you feeling Jen’s Halloween-inspired look, or did she take her seasonal spirit a tad too far?
