Kate Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow & Hilary Swank For Elle US November 2010

For the Elle US November 2010 edition there are 3 cover stars.

Hilary Swank, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson appear in the magazine for the “Women In Hollywood” issue.

Photographed by Carter Smith, Kate looks stunning on cover wearing one of my favourite dresses from Marc Jacobs Resort 2011 collection which we’ve seen on Leighton Meester.

The magazine hits newstands on October 20, but here are some extracts from Kate’s interview.

On learning about parenting from her mom and dad: “My mom and dad had it figured out: They never worked at the same time, and they were very conscious of making anywhere we went feel like home. When you’re working, the hours are brutal, but when you’re not working, you have all the time in the world. That’s always a difficult balance.”

On the difficulty of finding good female roles: “They are — because in most male-driven vehicles, the female parts tend to be dispensable. I have faith that we can make female-driven films that are as interesting to men as they are to women.”

On filming Almost Famous: “One of my favorite experiences. One, because I love Cameron Crowe. And two, because it was just such a wonderful movie. The whole thing was overwhelming — in the best way.”

Which is your favourite cover?

I’m stuck between Hilary and Kate.

Who Wore Louis Vuitton Better? Kate Hudson or Lily Allen

Kate Hudson was the first to wear this Louis Vuitton monogrammed cape from the Pre-Fall 2010 collection back in April.

She wore it on the red carpet when she arrived at the Tribeca Film Festival Premiere of her movie “The Killer Inside.”

The actress teamed her outerwear with an LV LBD, Brian Atwood ‘Alix’ pumps, Hollywood waves and a gold clutch.

Lily Allen also wore hers cape with an LBD before taking her seat at the TopShop Unique Spring 2011 presentation during London Fashion Week last month.

The pregnant star managed to hide her growing baby bump under the cape.

She added black tights, heels and a red Chanel bag to her look.

I’ve never liked this cape on Kate. It looks so awkward whereas Lily it very much suits her laid back style so she wins for me.

2010 Met Costume Institute Gala Red Carpet – Stella McCartney, Liv Tyler & Kate Hudson In Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney walked the red carpet with 2 of her Angels from last year – Kate Bosworth was the 3rd angel but has jumped ship tonight.

Stella wore a black one-sleeved satin mullet dress modified from her Fall 2010 collection with black strappy sandals.

Liv Tyler’s look was two Fall 2010 runway looks in one.

She wore a black mullet organza dress over a nude burgundy embroidered dress from the Fall 2010 runway.

Fred Leighton jewels and black peep-toes completed her look.

Kate Hudson finally lowered the neckline on her dress wearing an off-the-shoulder Stella McCartney nude gown with a gold sparkling embroidery and a thigh-high split.

Her look was paired with Fred Leighton jewels and a Casadei.

Kate kinda sticks out a bit here.

I guess mullet dresses aren’t her thing.

On The “Something Borrowed” Set With Kate Hudson In Dolce & Gabbana

Kate Hudson is currently filming “Something Borrowed”, a story about a Manhattan attorney who becomes involved with her best friend’s fiancé.

The romantic dramedy co-stars Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski.

Kate was spotted on set at the Spring Lounge in SoHo, New York last night prepping for her next scene wearing Dolce & Gabbana.

That Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010 floral print made famous by Tina Fey and Sheryl Crow was worn with a trademark Dolce & Gabbana black bustier and a black cropped cardigan.

“Something Borrowed” is due out in 2011.

This look will be so out of season by then darrrrling ;)

“The Killer Inside Me” New York Premiere – Kate Hudson In Louis Vuitton

Kate Hudson arrived wearing a poncho to the Tribeca Film Festival screening of “The Killer Inside Me” in New York.

I literally recoiled in horror when I saw Kate wearing this black and white striped Louis Vuitton poncho.

It really has no place on the red carpet.

Thankfully her stunning gold clutch is beautiful enough to distract me.

Things got a little better when Kate removed the poncho to reveal a Louis Vuitton LBD.

I just wish the dress had a lower neckline.

I love the open back, but the turtle neck feels so uptight for a red carpet look, especially for someone like Kate.

Not liking either look in conclusion. The twinkle in her eye is not reflected in her look.

And whoever did her hair and make-up needs to go back to beauty school.


On the plus side her Brian Atwood ‘Alix’ pumps are fab.

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2010 Presentation – Kate Hudson In Burberry Prorsum

Kate Hudson arrived at the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2010 presentation in London yesterday wearing a military green coat with black fur lapels paired with black Burberry Prorsum strappy sandals.

After shedding her coat we saw Kate’s eye-popping mini dress.

This Burberry Prorsum green sequin mini is very much Kate’s red carpet staple: short, sassy, sequined and sexy.

As the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke….”

2010 SAG Awards – Kate Hudson In Emilio Pucci

Better On The Red Carpet Award
Kate Hudson is wearing me out as she looks outstanding wearing this Emilio Pucci Spring 2010 gown.

I love it when Kate gives us sexy glam.

Her white backless gown with crystal embellishments on the hip is so much less bridal than her Golden Globes gown from last week.

Not many can out do Natasha Poly, but I think Kate does.

Her hair is elegantly coiffed and her jewels are stunning.

More From The Golden Globes Red Carpet

Penelope Cruz wore a Armani Privé Spring 2005 black gown with a mermaid tail.

I like the lace the detail around the bust a shoulder line but I’m a little bored by Penelope in black again.

I feel that she’s trying to channel her Spanish roots here but it somehow looks a little messy.

Glenn Close sparkled in this black Oscar de la Renta floor length Fall 2009 dress.

I just feel it isn’t special enough for the Globes.

The bust line of the dress and the bare shoulders make her arms look too muscular.

Rose Byrne wore a Lanvin Pre-Fall 2010 dress in a deep purple with a bow detail at the waist.

I’m glad Rose decided to wear the dress in this colour but I apart from that I’m left feeling a little bored.

Kate Hudson walked the red carpet in a Marchesa Bridal Spring 2010 gown with sculptured band bodice and bottom flared skirt.

I just can’t make you my mind about this. Part of me is thinking “what the hell?” and the other part doesn’t mind it so much.

I’ve never really got why stars wear bridal looks on the red carpet but I’m actually quite drawn to the sculpting on the dress.

The shoes are way too heavy though.

Jaime Pressly is shimmering in this Kevan Hall Spring 2010 dress with a split up one side.

I prefer this dress on the model as I feel that it has more of an impact against brunette hair.

I don’t think the champagne coloured clutch compliments this dress at all.

Jenna Fischer wore a dress from Halston’s Spring 2010 collection.

I like it but I don’t love it. I just can’t see how this dress is event appropriate. This is a star’s chance to shine and this dress is never going to deliver that moment.

Runway To Oprah – The Ladies Of “Nine”

The cast of “Nine” were on Oprah recently to promote the musical which will be released after Christmas.

Each actress looked beautiful.

Kate Hudson wore a stunning L’Wren Scott fitted black dress with a pearl necklace.

She was very coy talking about A-Rod when questioned by Oprah.

On Wednesday People.com reported Hudson and A-Rod split a few weeks ago so that was probably why.

Marion Cotillard wore a leopard print Isabel Marant Fall 2009 dress, which has been worn by Eva Herzigova and Shakira.

Penelope Cruz wore a cute white tweed dress with tights.

Nicole Kidman was the one who surprisingly opted for the brightest colour wearing a L’Wren Scott fuchsia headmistress dress we’ve seen in black and white and teal.

Of all these looks, I’m totally in love with Marion.  Penelope’s look is my least favourite as she added tights to such a summery look.
