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.”

Best Dressed Of The Week – Kate Hudson In Gucci & Gisele Bundchen In Atelier Versace

BDOTW 11 1

It was a busy weekend with the Baby2Baby Gala, BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards, EMAs, AFI Fest premieres and two sightings of Blake Lively, so I hope you go back a few pages to catch up.

Kate Hudson swept you off your feet this week so you crowned her best dressed in her gorgeous Gucci gown.

I, on the other hand, opted for Gisele Bündchen in Atelier Versace. There were many wow moments this week, but this one made me feel very nostalgic and reminisce on the real supermodel era.

When it came to the fellas, our selections differed too. You loved Tom Hiddleston, and who can blame you? The guy knows how to wear a suit with such confidence.

Pharrell Williams got my vote in Lanvin. He looked uber cool and savvy and only narrowly beat out Gerard Butler, who looked very cool in all blue.

Kate Hudson In Gucci – LACMA Art + Film Gala 2013

Kate Hudson In Gucci - LACMA Art + Film Gala 2013

Kate Hudson stunned on the red carpet while attending the third annual LACMA Art + Film Gala held at LACMA in California yesterday evening, honouring filmmaker Martin Scorcese and artist David Hockney.

The actress showed off her toned abs wearing a blush Gucci halter-neck gown with a shimmering bodice featuring a deep plunge, embellished waist and cut-outs.

Kate styled her breath-taking gown with nude peep-toes and a nude box clutch. She completed the look with a sweeping updo, smoky eyes and pink lips.

I love how this look creates the perfect balance of sexy and sweet.

While Kate’s Reem Acra dress is still my favourite from her this year, this comes in at a very close second.

Kate Hudson In Versace – Chrome Hearts Hosts Gareth Pugh Dinner

Kate Hudson In Versace - Chrome Hearts Hosts Gareth Pugh Dinner

Kate Hudson attended a dinner for British designer Gareth Pugh hosted by Chrome Hearts at Malibu Farm in California yesterday evening.

While you may struggle to picture Kate wearing Gareth Pugh’s innovative pieces, you will have no such trouble appreciating her in this gorgeous Versace frock in a sexy bright red hue with patent-leather straps accented with buttons.

Her frock is an updated version of the Versace dresses with cut-outs which appeared on the Spring 2011 runway.

Kate styled her dress with black grommet accented pumps and a gold bracelet, allowing the dress to do all the talking by opting for a simple bun and barely-there makeup.

Kate Hudson In Barbara Bui – The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Kate Hudson In Barbara Bui - The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Kate Hudson made a guest appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, where she shared that her son Ryder is pressurizing her to marry her Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy, to whom she’s been engaged since 2011.

The bubbly actress opted for a Barbara Bui Resort 2014 long-sleeved dress with a plunging neckline, revealing her black bra, which she styled with navy tortoise Rupert Sanderson ‘Elba’ pumps.

I want to be put off by the revealed bra, but it looks like it could actually be part of the dress.

Does the bra put you off this look?
