When Kate Hudson arrived on stage at the Savoy Hotel in London wearing a Stella McCartney Spring 2012 gown at the 2011 British Fashion Awards to present the Red Carpet Award, it was a clear indication of who the winner would be.

Before she handed out the award she told us a story about how they first met when Stella dressed her for the 2001 Oscars, which she read from her iPhone while wearing glasses.

She recalled, “Stella dressed me for my first red carpet event in 2001 for the Academy Awards. It was my first and only nomination. I was 21 years old and to have Stella McCartney dressing me – well, I felt like the hippest, coolest girl in the world. Up until the last minute Stella was still sewing the hem. I woke up the next morning, turned on the television to find out I was on every Worst Dressed list. So I called Stella and we just laughed our arses off and she said to me, “Look babe, it was the hem wasn’t it?”

She then went on to say that she will wear the dress again, but she will make a better hair choice.

Kate has no fear of appearing on any worst dressed list this time because her body, despite giving birth to Bingham five months ago, looked amazing in her black one-shoulder gown with an embroidered detail and mesh panel.

She wore her blonde hair in a top knot and opted for dewy makeup.

Many of you have been very critical of Stella McCartney’s Spring 2012 collection.

What do you think of Kate’s custom dress?
