New York: Jennifer Hudson had to engage a man to help her with her dress to make her way into the Oscar awards night.

The Oscar winner had her manager, Damien Smith, behind her all night carrying the long train of her knockout, tangerine Atelier Versace dress at the Kodak Theatre.

"I do need a bit of help with this dress, so he’s kindly helping me out," the New York Post quoted Hudson as saying.

She paraded through the crowd at the packed Vanity Fair party at the Sunset Tower Hotel, with Smith dutifully following behind, dress in hand.

"I don’t mind holding her dress. It is a big night for her," Smith said.
