Kate Hudson is one of those actresses that you can guarantee will nail anything she wears on the red carpet. While her choices may be safe at times, there's no denying that she can seriously carry off a gown and this look that she wore to the premiere of 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist' during the 2012 Toronto Film Festival is a case in point.
White can be a tricky colour to pull off but the actress looked worked the Alexander McQueen gown to perfection. The make-up was subtle enough to look effortless and glowy whilst also feeling red carpet worthy and to finish off the look she teamed the dress with Tiffany & Co. jewels and an Alexander McQueen clutch. The only thing that I wish is that she'd opted for a delicate strappy sandal rather than the heavy style she opted for.
Kate Hudson fronted the Ann Taylor campaign for S/S12 and this week the brand confirmed that they've kept her on for their Tom-Munro-lensed fall campaign, which has also dropped.
'Fall is always my favourite season. I love layers and Ann Taylor is really going for more colour and pritns and fashion and stepping out of the box for their company,' Hudson told WWD. 'Sometimes when you work with big brands, you feel they have a very specific formula and I think Ann Taylor goes further with it...Ann Taylor isn't afraid of a little sexiness. I think it's about a working women who can own her sensuality.'
President Barack Obama knows how to throw a good party and deliver a good red carpet and the White House Correspondents' Dinner, which took place over the weekend was no different. Along with the usual mix of politicians came fashion folk like Tory Burch and Rachel Zoe, models like Kate Upton and Irina Shayk and major actresses like Kerry Washington and Claire Danes. As you know, Kim Kardashian never misses a photo-op was made an appearance with mother Kris Jenner making Obama joke, 'Why is she famous anyway?' during his speech.
As we count down to tonight's Oscars, we have compiled some images of some of the best red carpet moments we've had over the last few years.
Naturally Hilary Swank's Guy Laroche dress that she wore to accept the Best Female gong for 'Million Dollar Baby' is in the list, alongside Nicole Kidman in that red Balenciaga halter neck dress that she wore in 2007 and that breathtaking Atelier Versace gown that Penelope Cruz wore back in 2007.
Over the past year, Ann Taylor have worked hard on shaking-up frump mum images - and it's worked. The introduction of core fashion-led investment pieces and a string of celebrity spokespeople has really helped revamp the brand.
That said, the big unveiling today of Kate Hudson as the brand's latest face doesn't work. While - like Naomi Watts and Heidi Klum (who have both appeared in the campaigns before) - Hudson is a busy working mum, her reputation as the queen of all things boho doesn't sit well with the brand's aesthetic. Demi Moore, who Hudson has replaced, felt like a better fit.
It's been a busy week in Hollywood but that didn't stop everyone from Reese Witherspoon to Kate Hudson from attending the LACMA Art and Film Gala. This year the gala, co-chaired by Leonardo DiCaprio and presented by Gucci, honored Clint Eastwood and artist John Baladessari.
As you would expect, the majority of guests appeared wearing Gucci S/S12 and the best outfits of the night definitely go to Camilla Belle, Evan Rachel Wood and Zoe Saldana. All three actresses showed off the brand's 20s flapper dresses off beautifully.
Kate Hudson and Naomi Watts have long been loyal followers of Stella McCartney. Hudson wore a black sparkly jumpsuit by the designer with khaki gladiator sandals and Watts teamed hers with a black jacket and yellow heels for a party in Cannes.
