Kate Hudson In Stella McCartney – 2013 Elle Style Awards

Kate Hudson in Stella mccartney - elle style awardsKate Hudson certainly put the red in red carpet when she posed for photographers at the 2013 Elle Style Awards, held at London’s Savoy Hotel on Monday evening.

The actress has been longtime friends with Stella McCartney, so it’s no surprise she had her designer pal dress her for the fashionable night.

What was more surprising was the intensity of this strapless dress, what with its sculpted, backless bodice and illusion lace panels that followed the length of the entire gown.

To go with this va-va-voom moment, Kate swept her hair back into an effortless updo, which nearly seemed a bit casual for this look. She did avoid the temptation of a too-sparkly necklace, only putting on drop earrings and carrying a black Stella clutch.

Stella won the event’s best International Designer award. And, you guessed it: The prize was presented by none other than our lady in red, Kate.

    Gorgeous. And not characteristic of Stella. And cleavage. She looks spectacular

    Love! She has been looking so radiant lately. This is the hair I wish she had worn for her McQueen gown.

    Wow. Excuse me while I swoon over that dress.
    The earring and clutch leave something to be desired, but DAT DRESS.

    Not the best choice of accessories perhaps a bit prettier earrings and a gold metallic clutch would’ve worked better, but the gown is lovely, she looks statuesque and certainly has the poise to carry it off.

    She looks gorgeous! The dress looks soooo good on her.

    Reminds me of the vintage Versace she wore awhile back w/o the illusion neckline. This look isn’t a favorite of mine. Sitting too low and a too revealing top. The rest is just OK.

    She looks good in red but not in this. I prefer her Prabal Gurung Red dress to this.

      +1. The dress is good, but I preferred her in Prabal Gurung. She was radiant there.
      In here, I guess the make up doesn’t brighten her up.

    She looks stunning, I love the colour and I love it on her.

    Wow! A Stella McCartney may actually end up on my BDOTY. Dare I hope that someone looks this amazing at The Oscars?

    Wow for the look–and love for that bright playful smile on her face :)

  13. Louise February 12, 2013 at 09:34 #

    She looks absolutely amazing!

    Wow she looks stunning! The red backless strapless is very Jesica Rabbit (without the extra clevage). I also prefer her other red dress but she looks great here, she has such a poise.

    Kate looks stunning in this beautiful gown.
    The gown is by itself is so darn lovely that anyone would look as beautiful as Kate does. Simply beautiful gown needed no accessories to take it further. Love stella’s creation.

    Gorgeous… she has been stunning on the red carpet lately. She is glowing!!

  17. Moxie February 12, 2013 at 15:46 #

    Beautiful, but missing that pop. Maybe a brighter lip color? Close, but not quite there.

    The lace panels of the dress are what make this dress perfect!
