WERQ: Kate Hudson in Prabal Gurung

Posted on October 12, 2012

Feh. Enough Project Runway ranting. We need a hardcore dose of Capital-F Fashion and Kate Hudson is just the bitch to give it to us.

Wait. What?


Kate Hudson attends the amfAR’s Inspiration Gala in a Prabal Gurung gown.

Prabal Gurung Resort 2013 Collection/Model: Mina Cvetkovic

Miss Girl isn’t normally a name that pops up when we’re casting around looking for a fabulous bitch to feature on the blog, but DAMN. She is WERQing that bod and WERQing that slinktastic dress. And it’s red! Unlike the long succession of white looks she’s worn over the years! Love the shoulders, love the purse, love the hair, love the butt. Love it all, really. Okay, maybe not the gold platforms, but we’re willing to overlook it. You WERQ that T&A, girl! Titty Snaps!

  • GorgeousThings

    Love the necklace!

    • I totally didn’t notice the necklace – there was a lot of boob going on, and that’s all I saw. ūüėõ

      • iheartbuffy

        ¬†and they’re lookin purrrrdy fake

        • MoHub

           My thought exactly. Especially considering Mom was flat as a board in her younger days.

          • EveEve

            She had a baby last year Рgive her a break!

          • makeityourself

            She also had a boob job within the last year, and she (refreshingly) hasn’t kept it a big secret. ¬†So there’s that.

          • Zaftiguana

            Because we all have bodies exactly like our mothers, and nothing like a whole other person’s set of genes, life events like having and nursing children, or just the use of enhancing support garments can ever change that in any way.

          • alyce1213

            More to the point, so was Kate.

      • YoungSally

        Did someone accidentally put the boob tape under her armpits? Those babies are a wee bit spreadeagle.

        • I went from AA to DD with my first baby (thankfully I settled back at B), and my girlfriends tend to go their separate ways rather than hang out together. ¬†It’s not like she’s wearing a push-up bra (or any bra?).

          • YoungSally

            Separate ways — great term!!!! ¬†

      • Zaftiguana

        Seriously? Are you a 12-year-old boy?

    • merciblahblah

       YES. That necklace with that dress is a-frigging-mazing. Love love love them both.

  • teensmom99

    better than usual but still meh.

  • BazoDee

    Despite my irrational hate for her – WERQ it! (although I’m not completely sold on the hair)¬†

    • 3boysful

      ¬†I was vacillating on the hair, but decided it looks intentional, not yoga-ish, like they were going for a mermaid thing, so I’ll give her a pass.¬† (Like she cares.)

      • BazoDee

        I know it is intentional, but just not in WERQ love with it.

      • Rrroza

        The hair echoes the necklace.

      • H3ff

        Yoga beats cocker spaniel every time in my book.

  • ChiliP

    I LOVE that necklace! She looks fierce. Don’t love the obvious extensions in the pony, but that’s a minor complaint.

  • Sobaika

    She looks great! Boobs look a little squished, but that’s okay.

  • DinaSews

    The seaming on the bodice is interesting.  I wonder if the sides were intentionally meant to be slightly gathered or if that is just the way it fits her?  Flattering nonetheless.

    • LadyCelia

      Looking at the shot from the back, looks more like a fit issue than a feature.

  • Too much boobs.¬† What is with these necklines?

  • SOOOO not a necklace I would have picked out for this dress (or for her!), but it looks fabulous! Seriously girlfriend is looking good these days!

  • ChaCha_70

    Dayum – she looks amazing! “Titty snaps”…needed a laugh this morning, TLo. Thanks! LOVE that necklace with the dress. Is she still working with Rachel Zoe as her stylist? If so, nice job Rachel!

  • ecallaw1977

    If you’re going to do breast implants, this is the way to do them tastefully.¬† She looks fantastic (except for those damn platforms)!

    • MilaXX

       Kelly Rowland did the same thing. Just enough to fill out clothes.

    • EveEve

      She had a baby last year – give it a break!

      • ecallaw1977

        Give it a break?¬† I know she had a baby last year, but I also know that she got breast implants in 2010.¬† I don’t think it’s out of line to give her a compliment that she didn’t go overboard and tacky like some people do that go under the knife.

        • EveEve

          And you *know* she got implants, how?¬† She looks completely natural, and unless she issued a press release about it, I’m inclined to disregard trashy tabloid speculations.

          • alyce1213

            Please,¬†would you believe your own eyes?? ¬†Look at her in “Almost Famous” and now.
            There is no question that she had implants. ¬†It’s not tabloid speculation, it’s fact.

          • Zaftiguana

            This may be my favorite comment on this whole topic. Tabloid speculation = unreliable. Internet commenter speculation based on comparing a woman’s younger body to the one she has now, two babies and nine years later = FACT, bitches!¬†

            We could all keep having this insanely stupid conversation, or we could get back to a nice lighthearted, entertaining chat about fashion. I don’t know about you, but I vote for the latter. ¬†

          • alyce1213

            I vote for the latter too. Especially for commenters who believe that someone’s breasts get high and perky after nine years and two babies.
            She has quietly admitted to it, so why the controversy to begin with?

          • Zaftiguana

            If she’s admitted to it, why the idiotic drivel about how you have FACTS because of how her body looked 13 years ago (my bad, Almost Famous came out longer ago than I thought!) before having children and an apparent ignorance of breast tape, cutlets, etc.?

          • alyce1213

            Interesting and insulting take on things. ¬†You call my comment “idiotic drivel” because I know it to be true? ¬†I didn’t say I had FACTS. ¬†I said it was a fact because not¬†only¬†is it quite obvious, SHE HAS ADMITTED TO IT. ¬†
            No more stupidity.  Fact.  End of story.

          • Zaftiguana


          • Enough with this stupid goddamn discussion about her tits. Talk about the look or talk about her.

      • alyce1213

        Having a baby doesn’t make your boobs high and perky. ¬†Nice little implants do.

  • allj

    Dress looks great on her, but I actually loathe all the accessories. I don’t know why, but the necklace is making my eye twitch.¬†

    • filmcricket

      Yeah, that necklace is one of the most hideous pieces of jewelry I’ve seen in a long time.

  • Patricia Gillett

    Don’t love the hair but the dress and necklace are fierce!

  • call_me_schmeg

    total snaps! and her makeup artist saw all that titty and ass and decided, let’s NOT do a red lippe, mmmkay? she looks sexy and fierce but with just the right touch of softness.¬†

  • Too much sternum!

  • Kyle Crawford

    She looks great, close to a best ever for her- AND it is a magic dress , cause our Miss Kate has no decolletage what so ever to speak of this this is giving her quite the bust!

    • MilaXX

       She bought some boobs shortly before she got preggers. Not huge ones, but enough to serve this dress justice.

  • I didn’t realize I knew what Blake Lively looks like until I saw Kate Hudson looking exactly like her.¬† Weird.

  • lovelyivy

    Freakin amazing. A look so damn fierce that it makes me disregard my totally rational dislike of her (she makes terrible movies, that’s all it takes for me to dislike) to stand back in awe.

    • MilaXX

      ¬†I don’t think she has made one decent movie since Almost Famous.

      • lovelyivy

         Not one. And the ones she has made are not just mediocre, they are just terrible. She and Matthew McConaughey need to take a damn vacation from each other forever.

        • H3ff

          I enjoyed The Skeleton Key. Not a good movie necessarily, but enjoyable.

  • This is why having a properly fitted dress makes all the difference. If it were slightly off this would all have gone to pot.

  • curiouserandcuriousest

    I love the detail in the shoulders, and those accessories (that necklace!) lift it again. This is very put together.

  • imspinningaround

    She really does have a nice ass. 

    I met Kate Hudson once in the bar at the Chateau Marmont.  She was actually very sweet, even to a fat peon like me from the suburbs of Philadelphia.

  • MilaXX

    Agreed, Kate borders on the verge of making my irrational hate list, but here she looks great. I can even let the gold platforms pass because everything is is on point. WERQ

  • Proof of my contention that the best accessory is a great body.

  • SewingSiren

    She should consider to not wear white more often.

    • 3boysful

       Exactly.  She needs props just for not being in an overworked white Marchesa.

    • Zaftiguana

      Right? With her coloring, she can pull off such a wide palette of colors. She looks fantastic.

  • So I guess penis amulets are back in style?

    • tereliz

      Sweet! I’m wearing mine today. ūüėČ

    • jw_ny

      ¬†Penis amulet?!¬† Her necklace pendant?¬† Doesn’t look like any penis I’ve ever seen before (and I’ve seen my fair share…;))¬† Should I feel sorry for you if that’s what you/yours has?¬† lol…j/k.¬† ūüėÄ

  • StellaZafella

    I thought it was “Sharon Stone on a good day” and I mean that as a compliment…rockin’ the body!

  • I love it when you guys say “rack” and “titty snaps”. ¬†It makes the long, empty weekends without any TLo posts easier to deal with.

  • filmcricket

    Hate, hate, HATE that necklace. And is it me or is the dress a skosh too tight? It seems to be pulling around her ribcage so the zipper doesn’t lie flat.¬†

    That said, it is an amazing colour on her and her ace and bod look amazing, so kudos on your genes, Ms. Hudson.

  • halleygee

    She looks amazing, I love her lately. I want boobs like that – I know they’re paid for but they’re pefect.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    She looks awesome, but I hate the hair.

    • Dot

      I agree. It resembles a rat tail to me.

    • alyce1213

      It’s awful — ratty, fake. ¬†I wouldn’t want to touch it.

  • newtonGOTbeaned

    I hate when I can see implants, and the neckline and squishiness of this dress are making hers pop. She looks great otherwise. Her makeup is really flattering and her tush sure is perky.

    • Dot

      Really? She has implants? Her breasts look very natural to me. I’d love to know how you can tell; I’m terrible at spotting that kind of thing.

      • iheartbuffy

        it’s basically about how high up the girlies sit– look at Kate vs. the model. If you look like you’re wearing a push up with no bra, THEY’RE FAKE. It’s super obvious when someone’s walking and. they. don’t. move.

      • alyce1213

        Yes indeed. Compare her now to “Almost Famous” (2000). ¬†They are definitely implants. ¬†She was smart to keep them smallish, but this neckline does make it more obvious than usual.¬†

  • iheartbuffy

    That dress belongs to Nina Dobrev.

  • Janet B

    Fierce look.

    I’m not loving the wide v neckline that seems to be a thing lately, but Kate’s managed to make it work (or WERQ)

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Hot!  She looks amazing!

  • petalfrog

    Divine head to toe. Love her makeup and love the necklace!!!

  • “Titty snaps.” Laughing and wincing at the same time. Those sound painful!

    Katie! You got a WERQ, honey! You’re a big girl now!

  • EttaKit

    Do you think stylists started putting women in platform pumps so they wouldn’t have to hem the dresses? ¬†That’s the only excuse I can see for wearing platforms with a gown.

    • tereliz

      So many of these stars are much more petite than they seem on camera. So I understand why Kate and say, Salma Hayek love their platforms. If I was only 5’2″ I’d probably live in them, as well. Doesn’t make the hooves photograph any less ugly, though.¬†

  • Judy_S

    Agreed. Definitely a palate cleanser after contemplating the PR semi-finals.

  • Kayceed

    Badaboom! Whatta tomato!

  • jw_ny

    Kate looks fantastic.  I like it all except I do feel the need to criticize the boob over-exposure. An inch more coverage on each would look so much more classy..as on the model.  Her boobs look well placed and symmetrical at least, unlike the wonky boobs that Dania Ramirez was showing off the other day.

  • Anathema_Device

    Titty snaps, indeed! Titty-Titty Bang Bang!

  • This is an amazing look and normally I loathe the cliche of red. Hair ‘n’ all, perfect.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    Dayum, girl! She is working that red, didn’t know she possessed that kind of bitchface. It’s a great balance for her, with that slinkiness that really suits her sylphlike shape but a bit of structure around the shoulders for interest and gravity. The hair is really lovely and interesting. I love being able to see her ears. Perfect touch of makeup. Fab fab fab.

  • pookiesmom

    Wow, she looks fab! Werq, indeed!

  • Clueless_Jock

    It’s a bit trashy but I love it.

  • Zaftiguana

    Katie, lookatchu! It’s so nice to see her breaking out of her need to constantly go for either white minimalism or patchouli-stink boho chic and just decide to look good.¬†

    And I don’t know what titty snaps are, but I’m going to play it safe and decide that I want nothing to do with them.

  • sk8tfan

    Can’t stand her or her movies but day-um, lately she’s been bringing it. Girl’s earned your snaps.

  • EEKstl

    Va-voom!  Nicely done!

  • TieDye64

    She looks great, but the boobage is a bit distracting.

  • VRuss

    Don’t really love the dress, but she looks stunning!

  • EveEve

    Seems completely natural to me – natural especially for a woman who had a baby last year.¬† It’s not like they are two baseballs attached to the clavicle.

  • theblondette

    Eee, she looks like a Wicked Queen! Awesome.

  • poggi

    I also think the neckline is a little wide, but she looks great.

  • shawnhunter

    can’t even hate, so fierce

  • AlinaValero

    she looks awesome. also titty snaps sounds painful.

  • mom2ab

    I always wondered how you kept a dress like that in place now I know-titty snaps

  • alyce1213

    Can’t be a WERQ with that raggy fake ponytail (whatever happened to sleek and polished?) and that way too wide neckline. ¬†It’s also too long.

  • I detest¬†those gowns¬†that expose such wide expanses of chest, such as that awful Lea Michele magazine cover last year. Just not pretty at all. From the back, looks much better.

  • RocknRollmom

    I generally find her irritating but she has definitely upped her game as of late.¬† I am impressed by the slink and the red and the overall structure of the dress. But I HATE that necklace (though it probably costs more than I earn, but expensive does not equal beautiful), the too wide cleavage, and the ratty pony tail.¬† But shoulders up and waist down—stunning.

  • ccm800

    Putting jaw back where it belongs. Wow. 

  • AthenaJ

    She looks absolutely stunning, even with the borderline trip into nippletown.

  • B_C_J

    Overall a fabulous look.¬† However, I dislike the “handkerchiefs” hanging from the shoulder straps. They are distracting and unnecessary. I also have a slight issue with the fit in the bodice. There is also a lot of decolletage going on here.¬† Thankfully, her bust is modest and therefore the look steers clear of vulgar. The color is wonderful and the hair is divine.

  • jmorino08


  • mhleta

    I want to say something about all the chest she’s showing here. THIS is the way to do it and this is pretty much the ONLY sort of body that can pull this off. If your boobs have pancaked or need to collapse on your chest whenever you sit down or if you fail the pencil test (I don’t need to explain, do I?) then you shouldn’t wear this look. Ms Kate however gets the Golden Titty Pencil prize. Well done.

  • JaneDC

    I think we’ve transitioned from the push ’em up, squeeze ’em together cleavage to the spread ’em out, flatten ’em down era. There was another dress that did this the other day. I think it looks odd.

  • kimmeister

    I like the interesting shoulder treatment, and that it fits just right so that she’s not getting the dreaded underarm bulge-over.

  • Lilithcat

    Not a WERQ in my book. ¬†She’s about to fall out of the top, and her hair is a straggly mess in back.

  • Dagney

    I am kind of willing to overlook the “TITS!” issue because her stylist had the brains to use that general area to create an entire picture. ¬†The combination of the necklace and the sleeves on the dress paint an interesting look.

  • Trisha26

    Vulgar all around. Hate the exposed chest, hate how tight it is, hate the hair. No snaps from me.

  • glennethph

    She’s had work done.¬† That face looks almost as fresh as her Penny Lane days.

  • Glad you clarified the color b/c in some of those shots it looks like a rich coral.¬† She looks great!¬† How DO they get bods like that after popping out multiple kids?¬† Damn good genes, I guess.¬† (And a personal trainer & shapewear.)

  • guest2visits

    Fits a little differently on her and the model; but looks very good on both.

  • up with pod people

    So lovely.

  • And STILL I can’t stand this bitch on Glee.¬†

  • Like her moms, she’s got a kick ass bod, and the dress is smashing. ¬†Hair, not so much.

  • PeaceBang

    Oh my God! Miss Hudson! I’m in shock! Shock and awe! Love everything (well, the hair is a bit silly) but I think it’s the amazing necklace that takes it into WERQ for me.

  • bellafigura1

    Am I the only one who hates the word “titty”? I know I’m not the boss of anything but something about that particular piece of slang just grates and I wondered if it was just me …

  • Cautiously Pessimistic

    I don’t know, I think every girl needs gold shoes.¬† I… may have two pair.

    (True story: last time I went to the opera, I was feeling kind of lazy and didn’t dress up that much, but as I walked through the lobby I heard this woman say to the man with her, “Oooooooh, look at those gold shoes!”¬† I felt vindicated, for whatever it’s worth.¬† ūüėČ )

  • ¬†LOVE IT. Fierce, sexy, and a great color!

  • Jennifer Coleman

    I do believe this is a BDB. Well played, Kate.

  • AngelaGreen

    Woman is looking more like her mom by the hour, and that’s a good thing!

  • quiltrx

    It’s a little too much in the titty snaps department, but she does look fabulous.¬† And she’s wearing a COLOR, which automatically gets a smile from the Bitter Kittens!

  • She looks fabulous, but all I see are the titties – I didn’t even notice that fabulous necklace. ¬†So to me, it means that’s a bit much in the titty department. ¬†It’s an amazing dress, though!

  • DAYUM!

  • Laylalola

    I just find a foot-wide exposed bust line … odd.¬†

  • neofashionista

    Love it Phenomenal Love her!!

  • SuYin Wong

    T&Lo~~ You guys… Now you’re in my head whenever I look at everyday female (and male, but mostly female) fashion~

  • She has been werqing everything lately. Don’t like the ponytail pieces.
