Kate Hudson In Elie Saab – Novak Djokovic Foundation London Gala Dinner

Kate Hudson In Elie Saab - Novak Djokovic Foundation London Gala Dinner

Kate Hudson attended the Novak Djokovic Foundation London gala dinner at The Roundhouse in London yesterday evening.

The Californian girl with a sunny disposition opted for moody colours on this occasion, wearing an Elie Saab Spring 2013 chocolate-brown chiffon embellished dress with a high-low hemline.

Not content with the sparkle on her frock, she added Christian Louboutin spiked accessories, including the ‘Geo’ pumps and ‘Mina’ clutch.

Smoky eyes, a dark-fuchsia lip colour and a simple bun completed her look.

Someone else could’ve made me love this look, but it doesn’t work for me on Kate. It’s not summery or bubbly enough for her.

  • Bailey

    I agree that someone else could have pulled this look off better…the pink lip is a great match for the grey dress though

  • Parvati

    This is a bad look. I don’t like the high-low hemline, especially with that train and I also dislike the colour. The hair also looks bad.

  • Prudence

    Bad dress, super ill fitting and those roots are horrendous

  • Fashion Guru

    This look is quite stellar. Kudos to her for going against tupe and trying something. You look stunning Kate.

  • lee

  • Marybeth

    This dress might be stunning on the right person but it doesn’t work on Kate. Both the color and the cut are unflattering to her.
    Sandals and cleaner-looking hair would have helped.

    It’s not awful. It’s okay — just nowhere near her usual standard.

  • I know, with Naomi’s penchant for Alia, it’s quite the pain when celebrities wholly commit themselves to just one brand but Kate should have stuck with Stella on this occasion.


  • dee

    I like everything but the shoes. She should have worn sandals.

  • EmmaWoodhouse

    It’s rather a dull color (not very chocolatey) and though the details are intricate the shape is so sac-like. It doesn’t do anything for her or me.

  • AnderBoBo

    A rare miss for Kate, not a flattering silhouette nor is it an inspiring color.

    • Mike

      Agreed and Agreed

  • Lalaine

    Looks like a maternity dress.

    • Christine

      LOL. My first thought. This is not a good dress to begin with.

    • Nat39

      My immediate thought too – a maternity dress, shapeless, plus in that uninspiring colour…depressing and underwhelming.

  • Alicat

    I have been trying to work out why this dress does not work for me, and I think it is because a billowy dress has been paired with the billowy train. The dress needs to be more body skimming for the train to work. This is a difficult dress to pull off, and unfortunately she hasn’t managed to do so.

  • KatieKate

    Holy roots!! I couldn’t even focus on the rest, I got so stuck on her mile-long outgrowth. Yikes!

    • KatieKate

      Okay, I managed to focus elsewhere, and now I’m horrified by her makeup! Uggghh Kate?!?! Eyes or lips Kate, eyes or lips. Choose one or the other–not both! I think some far less fashionable intruder entered Kate’s body for the evening. I can only hope they have left.

  • jokebetweenthetrees

    I do love it on her. Something else for a change. I would have loved it even more is she had colourfull shoes and bag. As a pop of summer.

  • pene

    love the look. FIERCE

  • Alina

    It’s a big no for me.

    • Lauren

      Me too.

      The hair is the biggest offender

  • Yeliz

    It’s not very summery, I agree, but I still think that she looked great. I love the dress.

    • sailee

      +1 BDOTW for me

      • Cascia

        Me too

    • Zee

      Agreed. She looks great!

    • Jess2

      I agree also, love this different approach. She looks beautiful – especially love the lip colour!

  • Charlotte

    I don’t really like the dress especially the high-low hemline. Her make up is great though.
