KATE HUDSON'S IRIDESCENT GLOW
"I'm really in love with this non-traditional, blue-grey shade," says her manicurist Ashlie Johnson. "Its iridescence is subtle but unique, so it will work with all your festive frocks – and will probably be a fun conversation starter at parties, too."

Sure, there are other blondes with curls in Hollywood. But it's kinda hard to remember who they are when looking at this pic of Kate, whose look is more or less the ultimate version of that.
We predicted loose waves, and the star didn't disappoint! Nor did she let us down with her dress choice: a pretty, floaty, blush Valentino gown with a coral motif, shining golden clutch by Lee Savage and House of Harlow 1960 cuffs from pal Nicole Richie.
Some people love Hudson because of her rewatchable movies (How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, anyone?), some people love her because of her amazing style, some people love her for her charity work. The bottom line? Everyone loves Kate Hudson.
Kate Hudson and rocker fiancé Matt Bellamy looked no farther than their own folks when they named their son, born July 9, 2011. "For those wondering, Bingham is my mum's maiden name and Bing Russell was [Kurt Russell's] dad," Bellamy Tweeted. "Family connections all round!"
The actress produces Hudson-Bellamy wines along with her longtime fiancé Matthew Bellamy and even has a winemaker cameo in FarmVille 2: Country Escape. "So, how do we celebrate our #hbwines launch?? Uh...we drink it!" she wrote on this Instagram shot.
All that glitters is…Kate! The actress, who just streaked her hair pink for a good cause, dazzles from head to toe in a blush, sequined strapless Jenny Packham gown and a pearly Edie Parker clutch at the American Cinematheque Award gala honoring Matthew McConaughey.

KATE HUDSON'S ATELIER VERSACE
Andrea Lavinthal, Style & Beauty Director: I think traditional wedding dresses are beautiful, but if I ever walk down the aisle, it won't be in a frou-frou tulle-and-lace confection. It'll be in something slinky and sexy like what Kate wore to the Oscars. The dramatic open back was accented by a draped bolero that covered her shoulders (like a mini-cape). And while it showed a lot of skin in the front, it still felt elegant and glamorous enough to get married in (although I'm sure my mother would disagree).
There's something so Midwestern girl-from-the-farm-next-door about Kate's faded denim shorts and tied short-sleeve Ann Taylor button-down. But, of course, this girl's not on a farm, she's in Hollywood, so she goes for luxe add-ons like pale pumps and a nude chain-strap Maison Martin Margiela bag.

KATE HUDSON'S SWEATER DRESS
"Finally, a mini that actually looks warm. I need this, like, yesterday." – Louise
Ditto. But be glad you didn't buy it, like, yesterday since right now the Ann Taylor cable sweater dress is on sale for $55, down from $129. (Psst, order down since all the reviews say it runs big.)
MEET HER BEST ACCESSORY
That would be her flat abs, which she shows off in between a Houghton crop top and coordinating black pants. Though, to be fair, her other accessories, a quilted bag and bright-red pumps are a close second and third.
The only disappointing thing about this black-and-white Roland Mouret halter onesie? That Kate didn't save it for a major red carpet (she wore it for a TV appearance, but we deem it utterly premiere-worthy).
LEGS FOR DAYS
Lest you think she spends all her time at the gym working out her midsection, Kate slips into a tiny printed Zimmermann romper and sky-high raspberry Rupert Sanderson pumps.
The pale-peach letterman-inspired jacket and the perfectly coordinating heels take this jeans-and-a-tee look from Basic Bitch to ... uh, what's the opposite of Basic Bitch?
We've never been so excited about the color khaki. She makes it look cool thanks to a military-inspired cinch-waist jacket worn over itsy-bitsy matching shorts and a white top, plus enviable add-ons: reflective aviators, a beaded necklace and stacked Aruna Seth peep-toes.
We've always thought of the actress as a traditional girl of summer: beach waves and a body chain suit her well. But Kate is more warm-weather vamp than California coast in a sequined Michael Kors gown with a cutout and a dark lip for an N.Y.C. screening of Wish I Was Here.
KATE & MATTHEW
Length of engagement: 3 years, 2 months
Three months after announcing her pregnancy, Hudson shared the news of her engagement to Muse singer Bellamy on April 27, 2011. But even though baby Bing is nearly 3 years old, the "I dos" are still on hold. "Hopefully next year," Bellamy told Extra in 2013. Added Hudson, to E!, "We are together quite a bit just planning. It will happen eventually."
ALEX RODRIGUEZ: ATHLETIC BLONDES
The disgraced baseballer likes them blonde, strong and ripped. He dated super-human Madonna in 2008, a workout buddy Cameron Diaz in 2011 and 2012 and Kate Hudson, who showed off her sporty side while dating the former Yankee. Now, Rodriguez is dating the buffest blonde of them all: former wrestling diva Torrie Wilson.
