Kate Hudson's Harshest Critic – Her 5-Year-Old – Loves Her in Nine

It was a solo act, but Kate Hudson dazzled the crowd in London's Leicester Square Thursday night for the glamorous world premiere of the all-star movie musical Nine.

Wearing a white strapless gown encrusted with crystals and vertigo-inducing white platform heels, Hudson – currently linked to Yankee star Alex Rodriguez – walked the red carpet by herself and told reporters that her all-singing, all-dancing role was a dream come true, not only for herself but for Ryder, her 5-year-old son with former husband, musician Chris Robinson.

"It's like the most exhilarating, joyful thing in the world – I had so much fun," said the 1998 Oscar nominee, who plays a flirtatious journalist in Nine. She told PEOPLE that the film, based on the 1982 Tony-winning Broadway musical (which, in turn, was loosely based on Italian film director Federico Fellini's slightly autobiographical 1963 ), made quite an impression on her boy, who often traveled with her to the set.

Stars Pay Tribute to Natasha Richardson

As Broadway prepares to dim its lights Thursday night in her memory, the shock and sadness over Natasha Richardson's untimely death is still settling in among the theatrical and filmmaking communities, with reactions pouring in from both sides of the Atlantic from several generations of fellow performers, including Ralph Fiennes, Judi Dench, Jane Fonda and Lindsay Lohan.

"For everyone who knew and loved her, Natasha's death is a terrible, devastating loss. She was a star. A great actress, a beautiful woman, a fiercely loyal friend, a brilliant and generous companion," said Fiennes, 46, a longtime friend who costarred with Richardson in 2001's Maid in Manhattan. "She was an adoring and loving wife and mother. She was unique. My thoughts and prayers go out to Liam and her beautiful sons, Michael and Danny and to all her family. I cannot imagine a world without her wit, her love, her mischief, her great, great talent and her gift for living. I loved her very much. She was a supreme friend. I shall miss her deeply."
