Kate Hudson In Atelier Versace – ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

To say that Kate Hudson was radiant on the red carpet this evening for the Venice Film Festival premiere for ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, which also served as the opening ceremony, is the understatement of the century.

The actress wore a stunning Atelier Versace gown from the Fall 2012 collection.

I knew Kate would go for Versace, because Versace gowns have served her so well in the past, and what better way for a look from this collection to make its debut than at a European Film Festival?

Her nude Swarovski-crystal-embellished asymmetrical gown is giving her a breathtaking silhouette.

I love the chic wavy updo, the pearlescent Edie Parker clutch, Versace heels and the dazzling Fabergé jewels.

We all knew she would deliver, but she has exceeded my expectations. Does she exceed yours?

Kasia Smutniak now has a serious contender for BDOTW.

          +3 BDOTY for me!

    • Hannah August 29, 2012 at 23:59 #

      Breathtaking is the only word for this. Every word of this is perfection, she gets major bonus points for her posture and pose.

      • Valerie August 30, 2012 at 09:34 #

        +1. She looks so statesque!

  3. Fashion Follows Her August 29, 2012 at 18:46 #

    Fabulous gown and great colour choice! Versace do make amazing red carpet looks.

  4. Malinda Jane August 29, 2012 at 18:48 #

    WOW. This is my best dressed of FOREVER. She looks like a goddess.

    Just, WOW.

  5. Ramya August 29, 2012 at 18:51 #

    Is it just me or does she actually look better than the model??

    • Fashion Critic August 29, 2012 at 18:53 #

      Yes she does…a million time better…I forgot to write that as I was too busy picking my chin off the floor

      • Rashmi August 29, 2012 at 19:02 #

        She definitely looks way better than the model.. What a gown! Absolutely beautiful!

    • sara August 29, 2012 at 19:48 #

      Those were my thoughts exactly!!! She def looks better than the model. Beautiful.

  6. mm August 29, 2012 at 19:08 #

    Nailed it! wow I love Cannes and Venice film festivals, we get to see some consistent glamour. This BDOTY worthy

  7. Nat39 August 29, 2012 at 19:11 #

    I don’t think Kasia stands a chance against this. Kate’s look is simply gorgeous.

  8. Sandy August 29, 2012 at 19:13 #

    Sexy dress and gorgeous color. But I don’t like her hair. It doesn’t match the glamour of the dress.

    The shoes are divine. Does anyone know who designed those shoes? Where to buy?

    • charlotte August 31, 2012 at 09:37 #

      they are Versace as well!

  9. lu August 29, 2012 at 19:14 #

    stuning!! way better than the model. gorgeous dress an perfect styling.

  10. Fiona-Brasil August 29, 2012 at 19:16 #

    Absolutely perfect, without doubt, from head to toe , a winner …

  11. fromchi-town August 29, 2012 at 19:19 #

    She looks absolutely stunning. I think this is the best I have seen her look on the red-carpet. Versace and her are a divine match. Love it from head to toe – its absolute perfection!!

  12. Moxie August 29, 2012 at 19:29 #

    Kate blows Kasia out of the water! She is working that gown. I can’t imagine anyone being able to beat her in BDOTW. Is it worthy for a shot at your BDOTY list, FC?

  13. EmmaWoodhouse August 29, 2012 at 19:38 #

    Kasia’s Valentino Resort look (the ethereal gown) was more my style–Kate looks statuesque here but at the end of the day I’m not a fan of slinky gowns. So it’s not really my thing. Her posture and poise are beautiful, though.

  14. Dolly August 29, 2012 at 19:40 #

    Speechless…she looks absolutely phenomenal !

  15. Sherry August 29, 2012 at 19:46 #

    Kate hands down. I was shocked, she’s all grown up.

  16. Natalie August 29, 2012 at 19:49 #

    Amazing!:O

  17. Ela August 29, 2012 at 19:57 #

    Oh goodness!! Think this is the best I have ever seen her look. So pulled together.
    Only gripe, I was hoping for a picture with her posing with Riz Ahmed. :-)

  18. Gustavo Velasco August 29, 2012 at 19:58 #

    is she not wearing underwear?? brave!!

  19. dee August 29, 2012 at 20:05 #

    She looks great but I am not crazy about the gown itself.

    • Andrea August 29, 2012 at 20:39 #

      With that attitude and confidence she could be wearing a potato sack and still nail it :)

      • dee August 29, 2012 at 21:12 #

        Well I would prefer that I’d like what she is wearing. I am just not that blown away as everyone else seems to be.

  20. Mol August 29, 2012 at 20:09 #

    Stunning, jaw dropping, perfect fit of the star to the dress, will this be topped? I don’t think so…..

  21. Marko_M August 29, 2012 at 20:15 #

    Gorgeous in every sense of the word! She’s wearing the dress and not the other way around which is saying a lot! I predict a BDOTW showdown this week and it’s only Wednesday. And VFF is turning out to be very promising fashion wise.

  22. Andrea August 29, 2012 at 20:31 #

    Va Va Voom!
    She looks super hot but in a very untacky way. Love those golden high heels together with the dress.

  23. Rebecca Z August 29, 2012 at 20:39 #

    She does look absolutely stunning.Though nude, the dress is very interesting and she is selling it bigtime. Her hair and makeup are gorgeous.

  24. Kathy August 29, 2012 at 22:18 #

    Love, love, love. She looks gorgeous head-to-toe. The color of the gown is surprisingly flattering.

    • admmgz August 30, 2012 at 15:56 #

      +1 BDOTW contender!

  25. Jess August 29, 2012 at 22:38 #

    its a bit mono-toned for my liking, plus I fear that I can see her actual bum-cheek in the rear view? Tacky!

  26. shaun August 29, 2012 at 23:01 #

    firstly let me say FC thanks for including the upclose pics of the dress bc from far away i thought the dress had nude illusion/sheer cutout. upon farther inspection it is actually beading, i am floored. amazing beadwork done on that dress. attention must be giving to that.

    i dont love this sort of neckline on a dress bc it can have the tendency to make even the most perkiest boobs like saggy, but this is amazing. this dress is beautifully done.

    Versace will always rank highy on my list of best dresses of all time. Elizabeth Hurley black saftey pin dress from the 90′s is the reason i went into fashion, and wanted to be a stylist.

    FC im interested to hear if you had to do a list of your fav dress of all time what would it be?

    • shaun August 29, 2012 at 23:03 #

      * sorry meant your favoriate dresses

    • Fashion Critic August 29, 2012 at 23:04 #

      Oh…the list is pretty long…I would need to think on this one.

      • EmmaWoodhouse August 30, 2012 at 01:58 #

        Cate Blanchett’s vintage Christian LaCroix, Zoe Saldana’s Armani Prive from Cannes 2011, Gisele Bundchen’s pink Versace from the Costume Gala (2007?) and Angelina Jolie’s yellow Ungaro (2007) would be a few of my guesses for your faves FC! :)

        • Fashion Critic August 30, 2012 at 06:33 #

          that is pretty much spot on :D

          You know me so well x

          • EmmaWoodhouse August 31, 2012 at 02:02 #

            haha I’m a fan of reading the archives! :D

  27. Christine August 29, 2012 at 23:16 #

    She looks smoking hot. Damn, she looks good! Glad to see her return to the RC :) Definitely BDOTW

  28. Jones19 August 29, 2012 at 23:58 #

    Wow I don’t think I’ve ever been this floored by Kate Hudson! Her best look ever? I think it just might be.

  29. Dhppy August 30, 2012 at 00:38 #

    I usually think Versace tends to overdo it and border on tacky, but Kate Hudson knows how to lift it to another realm. Damn girl! Just… damn!

  30. Sam August 30, 2012 at 01:11 #

    Isabella Ferrari also wore a versace dress, but kate looks much better

  31. achebe August 30, 2012 at 01:39 #

    Gorgeuos!

    Is she wearing underwear? haha

  32. CreoleLady August 30, 2012 at 03:40 #

    I am looking at awesomeness here. This does not surpass Kasia’s dreamy Valentino for me but does equal it. Trying to remember when (if?) Kate has ever looked better.

  33. CC August 30, 2012 at 04:02 #

    wow. she looks amazing!!! it’s been a long time since i’ve seen her look this good!

    CC

  34. Wong Hiao Hiao August 30, 2012 at 04:13 #

    I am just going to add another sound to the chorus but I. Just. Had. To. Say. Something. In. The. Face. Of. Such. Fabulosity…. Kate, you rock!!!

  35. Tasha August 30, 2012 at 05:27 #

    Stunning look! Amazing dress, lovely Kate. Fantastic styling job Sophie Lopez!

  36. anne August 30, 2012 at 06:45 #

    she looks absolutely sensational

  37. roxana August 30, 2012 at 07:05 #

    STUNNING!

  38. Alina August 30, 2012 at 08:00 #

    BDOTY-worthy!

  39. Manolia August 30, 2012 at 08:44 #

    Wow best dressed of the year for me …. Kate u had my vote girl ;)

  40. charmedsage August 30, 2012 at 11:18 #

    This dress was on my Pinterest! Really ecstatic that it made its debut in all its beauty by Kate. Add me up on the voting poll to put this on the BDOTY list, FC. :)

  41. Nat August 30, 2012 at 11:20 #

    Wow, the closeups really show how stunning the embroidery on the dress is!
    She looks great, but the back of the dress is a bit too revealing, one can actually see her butt, and that can never be a good thing.

  42. AngeV August 30, 2012 at 12:26 #

    OMG ! This is a MAJOR fashion moment .
    She has shut it down!

  43. Amy August 30, 2012 at 12:39 #

    the dress is fantastic, the mazing details save it from being another nude sparkly dress. And Kate’s body looks banging in that dress.

  44. Pene August 30, 2012 at 13:04 #

    WOW!My first BDOTY contender.

  45. Aline August 30, 2012 at 13:07 #

    I’ll file this under: reasons why I love Kate Hudson and her flawless style. She looks so incredibly stunning!

  46. robbie August 30, 2012 at 13:46 #

    from the neck down this is utter perfection, but from the neck up its messy. would have loved if she went for some old hollywood style hair.

  47. Christopher Teoh August 30, 2012 at 15:55 #

    Ladies, learn something from Kate Hudson!! The mom of two wows the crowd in this nude fully embellished gown by Verscae which flaunts her assets to perfection!! Her makeup and updo are flawless which goes well with the outfit!! Not even a single fault we spot on you, Kate!!

  48. Dan Oliver August 31, 2012 at 23:15 #

    Flawless absolutely stunning the dress itself is just amazing BDOTW for sure

  49. Rebecca September 1, 2012 at 12:23 #

    Pure perfection!!
    The dress suits her so well!
