KATE HUDSON

Most Beautiful 2008: The natural beauty confessed to PEOPLE at the time, "I don't even remember the last time I got a manicure." Her priority: spending free time with then-5-year-old son Ryder rather than in a salon. Still, when she did get a facial or leg waxing, "I always think, 'I should do this more often.'"
Now: At 37, the mom of two (she welcomed second son Bingham in 2011) tells Self, "Some of my girlfriends get lasers and things, and I say, go for it, babe. It's important for women to find confidence. Whatever makes people happy."

Say you have a little too much fun this weekend and need a Sunday brunch outfit that requires no effort but doesn't broadcast your "bagel emergency" status to the universe. Why not give Kate's look a go? The oversized, fur-trimmed Smythe jacket and twisty topknot are no-brainers, while the Versace aviators and Koolaburra shearling-lined booties add the right dose of comfy-cool.

"I think it’s fun to wear [clothes that show] little peeks of skin," Kate said of her sexy, playful, and affordable Fabletics line. We're obsessed with the low prices, but we also love that she created a line that mimics her personality: free-spirited with a sexy twist.

KATE HUDSON: THE FOUR-AND-A-HALF HOUR PUSH

Four and a half hours of Hudson's 18-hour labor with her second son, Bingham, were spent pushing – the rest of the time, apparently, was spent dealing with her hands-on mom, Goldie Hawn, who showed up to the delivery room with pizza and Doritos and lots of advice, like, "Imagine your va-jay-jay as a large magnolia flower blossoming."

In the movie, Hudson played a band groupie and guitarist Crudup's love interest, and Stonestreet had a bit role as Sheldon the hotel desk clerk.

A month after going public with her pregnancy, Hudson put her bump on display at the February 2011 Grammys, prompting her beau, Muse rocker Matthew Bellamy, to say from the stage, "I'd like to give a shout-out to my beautiful, pregnant girlfriend over there." The couple celebrated more milestones when Bellamy proposed that April and they welcomed son Bingham that July.

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).

Just when we were about to put all our leather skirts into storage until fall, Kate gives us a reason to keep them out. Because, without tights and with bright shoes and a silky, skin-baring tank, her mini (from Ann Taylor) feels as summery as it gets.

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.
