Kate Hudson for Harper’s Bazaar US December/January

Kate Hudson for Harper Bazaar

Kate Hudson is the latest cover star of Harper’s Bazaar US, shot by Alexi Lubomirski for the December-January issue who captures the blonde star wearing Lanvin for the newsstand cover and Givenchy for the subscriber cover, plus a dazzling array of Spring 2014 looks from the likes of Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Roberto Cavalli and Fendi are featured in the editorial.

She talks to the mag about fitness, family, high-end shopping and my favourite top red-carpet fashion.

On high-end clothing: “People think we own all these dresses. But we borrow them. I can’t afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it’s very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition. I’m not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could but the truth is things are just so expensive. Before Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable.”

On the beaded denim Balmain minidress she wore to the ‘Clear History’ premiere: “It was a bit intimidating. The workmanship is amazing. It brought me back to being a little girl looking at anything sparkly.”

On her favourite red-carpet moments this year: “The black-and-gold Alexander McQueen dress I wore to the Golden Globes, and a red Stella McCartney and a red Prabal Gurung. I haven’t really done Valentino yet, but I want to.”

On staying active: “It really is a vital part of my day in terms of energy. And I mean just by putting a sports bra on. Then maybe you’ll do something. Even if it’s a few squats in the backyard and back to the couch.”

    FC, I just saw a pic of Kate Bosworth in that Fendi dress that Kate Hudson is wearing in this editorial. I fell IN LOVE with it, and was going to ask you about it, if you knew the designer. Then, sure enough, I am catching up on some posts from last week, and here it is!!! You never disappoint! 🙂

    Love the cover, she has such a gorgeous smile and always comes across like an upbeat person. Like the clothes but the pics look very dated and kinda cheap. Agree with the comments on how “thrifty” she has to be, seriously lol

    can afford.

    Great shot, I love her!
    On the other hand, if not even a movie star can’t afford designer clothes, then who can?

    Beautiful clothes even if the editorial itself is not that beautiful. She seems to be a grounded woman, but who believe that she can’t afford Isabel Marant? She’s a movie star, her boyfriend is probably one of the richest rocker and she thinks about saving money for her kids’s university?

    I think she must have been styled by Zoe on this spread.

    This is such a stunning cover! So vibrant and happy. Definately makes me want to pick it up.
    I love the cheerful editorial too. Not that you’d want it all the time, but it’s a nice change to just have fun with fashion.

    I expected better from Harper’s Bazaar. These photographs look like they belong in Glamour or Lucky. The styling is ostentatious and very amateur-looking.

    She looks like a million bucks in all the pictures!!! That Givenchy dress is giving JLo/Bey tease! Its a stunning dress.

    Great editorial and interview.

    Gorgeous, fashionable and down to earth (apparently). What’s not to like?
