Here’s your Pretty of the Day: Kate Hudson for Harper’s Bazaar. We’re surprised too.
Kate Hudson covers the December 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine in Lanvin photographed by Alexi Lubomirski.
On her red carpet style: “People think we own all these dresses, but we borrow them! I can’t afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it’s very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition. I’m not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could but the truth is things are just so expensive. Before Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable.”
On her favorite red-carpet looks this year: “The black-and-gold Alexander McQueen dress she wore to the Golden Globes and a red Stella McCartney and a red Prabal Gurung. I haven’t really done Valentino yet, but I want to.”
On the beaded denim Balmain minidress she wore to this past summer’s premiere of “Clear History”: “It was a bit intimidating,” she recalls. “The workmanship is amazing. It brought me back to being a little girl looking at anything sparkly.”

Not that Kate isn’t pretty; just that she’s rarely demonstrated the kind of work-that-camera skills that gets people designated T Lo’s Pretty of the Day. But this is a fun editorial that plays to her strengths and pushes her envelope a bit. Who knew she could work a ridiculously exuberant McQueen dress like that? And she’s seriously making that Givenchy sing. It’s a surprise they put the Lanvin shot on the cover, since it’s the least interesting of the three looks here.
