Kate’s not exactly someone who dresses with the idea of bring the drama, but she’s done us proud on that front this time.
Kate Hudson attends the Novak Djokovic Foundation London gala dinner at The Roundhouse in London, UK in an Elie Saab dress from the Spring 2013 collection paired with Christian Louboutin pumps and clutch.

Because if nothing else, at least it’s not bland.
We kinda-sorta dig this. We’ll never fully embrace the mullet hem but we can appreciate the effect it brings on a windy red carpet. We like the beading on the dress, and we love the shoes and bag. We just think the latter items are fighting with the look. Shoes and bag with that much attitude need to be deployed judiciously, and paired with less attention-seeking garments. There’s also the fact that she’s the same shade of pewter-gray from head to toe. Even her nails and eye makeup are silver-grey. A little breaking up of the color scheme (such as it is) would’ve gone a long way. The lips are standing out because they’re the only color to be seen – and we’re not convinced that’s the right lip shade for the look. And finally, we’re just not in love with the overall shape.
But, positive reinforcement, Katie! This is good, hon. Seriously. We have quibbles, but we can’t deny you’re bringing it.
