It was an evening full of glam, gals and ... margaritas!

Kate Hudson – along with girlfriends Nicole Richie, Molly Sims and Rachel Zoe – came together in West Hollywood last week to celebrate the launch of her new book, Pretty Happy.

"I think we all need support," the actress, 36, told PEOPLE at the Feb. 23 launch party, hosted by the athletic clothing line she cofounded, Fabletics. "The book is really about connecting to the things that make you happy when life kicks you off your feet – instead of sort of aiming for things that seem unattainable, to actually aim for things that feel more accessible."

The tight-knit group of friends and family spent the evening munching on vegan Mexican cuisine, sipping on tasty margaritas, crowding the photo booth, and shopping at the tiny Fabletics pop-up that was on site.

"I see Katie as someone who will continue to grow. What I'm loving is her love of what she's doing – she's inspiring people, which I think it's really important," Hawn said. "It's one thing to be an actress, it's another thing to be able to go out and be an inspiration for others. Take off the coat of actress and show who you really are. I'm very proud of her for that. That's an important thing because it's who you are, not what you do."

Not only is Hudson an Oscar-nominated actress, cofounder of Fabletics, and mom to two little boys, she can now add New York Times best-selling author to her list of accomplishments.

"If you would've told me 10 years ago that I'd be doing this, I would've been, like, 'No I'm doing a period piece in England somewhere,' " said Hudson. "But here I am and it's more rewarding than anything I've ever felt. It's amazing."
