We Need To Talk About Kate…
FIRST THINGS FIRST! A very Happy Birthday to my style star Femme Fatale partner in crime, Amy. May it be as fun and fashionable as you are. Enjoy being the older one for a week. xoxo.
Moving on to this very special edition of We Need To Talk About…the only special part being that it happens to fall on Amy’s birthday. There are a million Kates I could be referring to with this post. The Duchess, Moss, Bosworth, etc. But I have SUCH a style crush on the one, the only Kate Hudson. Maybe it’s because I just watched Clear History for the first time while nursing a hangover this weekend (pretty funny, btdubs). Anyway, it occurred to me that a Kate Hudson post was long overdue, I mean I voted her my best dressed at the Oscars. It’s hard to dress badly when you look that gorgeous, but Kate takes it to the next level with her outfit choices.
Since she burst onto the scene in 2000’s Almost Famous, Kate’s been a red carpet fixture. It’s not surprising, given that she’s the daughter of Goldie Hawn.
I’ll be honest, I’ve never been one to really like Versace that much, until I saw Kate Hudson wearing it. She manages to pick gowns that, while sexy, aren’t super in-your-face about it or over-the-top. That’s a lot of hyphening. Anyway, this blush color is ridiculously hard to pull off, but thanks to her golden complexion, Kate knocks it out of the park.
First, let it be known that I will forever be obsessed with metallics. Secondly, no one wears metallics better than Kate Hudson. As if this year’s Oscars weren’t enough, this gunmetal Cavalli gown is pure perfection. It’s like liquid, almost. I also love that she kept it simple with only a few bangles, letting the gown speak for itself.
YASSSS, girl, YASSSSS. In an ode to her bohemian roots, Kate shows up in this gorgeous printed Valentino gown to the Golden Globes, an event where most people stick to one solid color. Also, I can’t get over how young she looks here (she’s 24 here, younger than I am now). She’s a master at knowing when to bring the accessories out and when to let the dress speak for itself. This is just another example.
If I had to pick any dress to wear myself, it would be this one. It’s young, it’s fun and it totally allows for breathing room if you choose to eat a sandwich. The Screen Actors Guild Awards are a more laid-back event, so it makes sense that Kate would go for a less formal gown. I, for one, love it. The color. The pattern. All of it.
Kate’s really good friends with Stella McCartney, so it makes sense that she would wear her designs from time to time. What’s interesting is this dress in general. It totally looks like a Versace gown, but surprise, the sex appeal is all Stella. I love that she chose to wear a dress that shows off her super-toned legs. Let it be known this is the original Angelina pose.
