  • Sophie

    Hate the make-up. I don’t like the rest either, but the make-up is the worst part.

    • Rhonda Shore

      Me too! Her body looks great but the hair and make-up are awful.

    • GorgeousThings

      What is UP with makeup artists doing the Jersey Shore fake-bake look? Do she, JLo and JLaw all share the same stylist? If so, they need to fire his/her ass.

    • Let it out

      Yep. I never understood the either a nude eye/strong lip or vice versa. On the red carpet, particularly on a blonde, nude-anything makeup just looks washed out and tired.

    • Sobaika

      I don’t hate the makeup (I find it rather refreshing for her) but it’s depressingly off-season.

      • fursa_saida

        I just can’t buy it from her. She’s so very…not black lipstick. I also think the contouring on her cheeks is making it look like her face is dirty, but that’s an execution problem.

        I just can’t shake the feeling she’s been pranked by Wednesday Addams.

    • judybrowni

      No one could make that lipstick shade work, no one.

      Looks like the aftereffects of some awful disease.

    • Man Dala

      It belongs to Lorde #lizardlips

  • RussellH88

    This doesn’t even look like her. This entire look looks like something that would get Sharon Stone a lot of attention at a Golden Globes in the 1990’s.

    • Kent Roby

      It’s weird how SS at her wackiest never annoyed me (like Hudson does), perhaps because she is so talented.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Kate seems to be better known at this point for being so disgustingly toned and fit, as opposed to her acting career. Sharon Stone at least gave some very fine performances (see Casino)

  • Hallie

    the lipcolor ruins an otherwise fierce look

  • kipper

    This so should work ….. but its just not….

  • Daisy Walker

    Girl, that is not your look.

    • Introspective

      girl that’s DEFINITELY not your lipstick.

      • Heather

        I had that lipstick in 1998.

        • kimmeister

          EVERYONE had that lipstick in 1998.

      • AnnaleighBelle

        We slender-lipped ladies need to be careful with matte/dark color.

  • Hoik up the top, make it a little looser so she and the girls both have room to breathe, and lay off the bronzer. Then, go show Mr. Franco how a star dresses for an event.

    • marlie

      That’s right. OMG, she’s at the same event as the asshole in dirty jeans and sneakers. I get that if he’s not in the movie, he doesn’t have to dress up quite as much as the cast, but at least try to make an effort to not look like you haven’t changed your clothes in 2 days. He’s even more of an asshole, now.

      • Thomas

        What really bothers me about James Franco is that so many girls find him so dreamy. I’m in college and all of my girlfriends swoon over him. They even wait in line at book signings in NYC just to meet him or catch a glimpse of him. And these are smart, well-grounded girls too. They can’t see that he’s a pretentious twat for some reason.

      • Danielle

        Mandy Patinkin is in the movie!! Here’s hoping he showed up to the premiere RC and TLo will feature him. He could wear a rebozo and lederhosen and I’d die of happiness.

  • mjude

    not at all

  • Alison

    She might be able to pull off that lip if she threw on some black liquid eyeliner…maybe? Is balance the problem? I’m conflicted.
    That dress fits like a dream, though.

    • kimmeister

      I get that she was obeying the “eyes or lips, not both” rule, but it’s a problem when the lips are the only that even show up on her face.

  • Anna

    Because nothing dresses up a bistro apron better than a sequined bustier with a midriff window.

    She get’s a half a point for not wearing her signature “just worked out” hairstyle, but this is the barest minimum of hairstyling effort. The lipstick is horrid.

  • Lex

    Wow, that is the worst makeup job I’ve ever seen on her. Also, the dress seems a bit tight? She seems to be sucking it all in and looks uncomfortable.

  • Here’s the 90’s icon missing from that Gwyneth/Max Factor shoot.

    • Imasewsure

      As pointed out previously… it’s a total Sharon Stone in the 90’s look… so what we have here is Kate doing Gwynnie doing La Stone… and it’s still a no

  • charlotte

    Alternative caption: Kate Hudson in The 90s at the “Wish That’s Where I Was” screening?

  • FibonacciSequins

    I’d like to see the top of this dress worn with wide-leg trousers, maybe tuxedo pants. Don’t like the skirt.

    This is not Kate’s makeup or hair. Sexy beach girl is much better on her.

  • NBG

    This is her make-up person’s letter of resignation. She wrote it on Kate’s face.

  • Darcy H

    Rihanna’s team clearly got lost on the way to dress her for her next event, panicked, and dressed the closest woman they could find.

  • Wink

    It’s not quite right, but it’s far better than her usual blahness. Her body looks great.

  • Janet B

    This doesn’t look like her usual style or her style at all.

  • MilaXX

    Okay so lord douche comes dressed for a beer run & Kate looks like his? WTH?!
    She looks okay. I like the dress, but she’s over tanned and over made up. I like that she worn lipstick with color, but I think a red would have been a better choice . The dark wine color feels a bit a Fall/Winter and doesn’t go with a strapless dress with cut outs.

    • I do not know who did this to her face, and I cannot think of a punishment suitable for them.. it is just awful.

      That is most definitely not her face. 🙂

  • Noah

    What could you even say to your makeup artist to piss them off enough to do that to you?

  • In the thumbnail I thought she was Tori Spelling.

  • Dreamwr8tr

    Pseudo goth lite is not in Kate Hudson’s wheelhouse. She needs to wipe off the bronzer and maybe go with a classic lip and more eyeliner.

  • Ashleigh Weatherill

    That lipstick needs to head straight back to the 90s from whence it came.

  • Meh!

  • Heather

    Why does she look like a wax figure of herself?

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Way too stark and severe for her.

  • Constant Reader

    She looks so spectacular in the dress that it’s making me forget I’m bored with the exposed-midriff trend. I like the sleek hair. However, the makeup is unfortunate and I wish she’d worn fewer pieces of more interesting jewelry.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Is she in drag as Gwyneth Paltrow?

  • MartyBellerMask


  • kimmeister

    Well, the clutch is super cute, there’s that.

  • Stella Zawistowski

    That is some strange makeup. The bronzer makes her look sun-kissed; the purple lips make her look like she’s freezing.

  • decormaven

    What the what? That makeup job is so scary. Don’t ever let that MUA near you again.

  • boweryboy

    The hell? On the right woman, this could be a spectacular look. On Kate, not so much. And what’s up with her lip color?

  • @Biting Panda

    Fire them, Kate. Fire them all.

  • BobStPaul

    Is it just the horrible make-up or has she had work done? Regardless, it’s an unfortunate look.

  • HeisenbergHattie

    I always think she needs “softening”. The realities of her physique/body type and her facial bone structure tend to read “hard” on camera. My husband pays attention to film lens softening. Have you ever wondered why Kate looks better on film than on runway? Film lenses/cinematographers are her friend.

    • DuBey2

      Actually I have wondered that very thing, about her and a few other actresses. Thank you for educating me. Makes sense.

      • HeisenbergHattie

        There has been only one actress that my H said looks better in person than on film. Elizabeth Hurley. He said Hurley’s face is utterly and perfectly symmetric. I quote: “Film cannot capture that level of perfection. It must be gazed upon.” I’m like …. “What the hell?”

  • Anapestic

    I don’t know why everyone’s complaining about the makeup. I think the funeral director did a fine job. She almost looks alive.

    • RedRaven617

      Favorite response!

    • Thomas

      She does have the glow of formaldehyde that says she was recently embalmed.

  • Lilah

    I’m sure I’m in the minority here, but I kind of dig it.

  • Imasewsure

    Absolutely no to that makeup on her… and one look at that boring and cheap-looking gown and I thought… “must be Michael Kors, right?” And it was….

  • lunchcoma

    50-year-old singer doing a Las Vegas show she despises to pay for her last divorce.

  • Glam Dixie

    When she gets a load of these pictures some poor makeup artist is going to be looking for a job. Holy smokes, that’s bad.

  • StrandedFashionista

    That lipstick and stick straight hair is giving me eye-twitches and the dress color sucks all the life out of her skin.

  • holla

    hate the cut out and hate the lips stick

  • Kbear

    She looks like a vampire

  • Kitten Mittons

    If Rooney Mara shows up in some floaty beachy thing, then I will feel confident that the above look was just some giant Hollywood mix-up.

  • suzq

    Dear Michael Kors:

    Love you madly but leave the cut-outs to Stella McCartney so that we can hate her exclusively.

  • marlie

    Makeup courtesy of 1998. The bodice of the dress looks like it’s a smidge too tight and a smidge too short on her. Otherwise, I might kind of like it, despite the random stomach skin showing. But girlfriend better make sure she doesn’t sneeze while she’s wearing this.

    • DuBey2

      Oh, its driving me CRAZY — I want so badly to hoik it up & then attach straps to KEEP it up & keep the girls where they should be.

  • homofascist

    I for serious thought this was Tori Spelling when I first saw the thumbnail…

  • cocohall

    Now that Gwynnie is pretending to be Brigitte Bardot and Madonna in that cosmetics ad, Kate is pretending to be Gwynnie? I’m all for recycling, but not personas. And if you are going to pick someone to emulate, choosing someone who gets mixed PR at best, is not the wisest choice. I feel like Kate is trying to rebrand herself but isn’t quite sure how to proceed. To be sure, she has it a bit tougher than most in that her mother practically invented the kookie, lovable gal and hasn’t quite relinquished it despite being in her 60s. Kate has been a sort of Goldie 2.0 and it has served her reasonably well, but I can see why she wants to strike out in a new direction (Look what it did for Matthew McConnaughy – her frequent co-star). But girl, you need to get back with your marketing and styling teams and try again. You don’t look bad, you just look a bit generic. Paltrow, Aniston, and even Bullock have already planted their flags on the continent that is flat-ironed hair and body con sheaths.

  • Mothra

    The first picture I looked at quickly and I was sure there was a highball glass in her hand. Maybe there should have been.

  • conniemd

    Apparently the new fashion trend – bronzed vampire. Different.

  • snarkykitten

    Holy fuck the 90s are back with a vengance!

  • another_laura

    She’s on my hate list – and I think it’s completely rational – so I’m never going to completely love anything with her. However, the ill-fitting bustier (reach in there and pull it up, girl!), the flattening makeup, the really bad lip color. Trashy. Yuck.

  • The dress is too tight at the top, but if that were fixed I could be okay with this look…if she had some big bright jewelry. A honking necklace to fill some of the real estate between clavicle and bust. She does have a lovely clavicle, so maybe some big earrings with brightly colored stones. Her purse is awful, ditto her headsuit. The dress is so visually dark and heavy, she just fades into the background. She could use more eye makeup, something to make her eye color pop. That lipstick is twenty kids of wrong in this season and this year.

    The more I look at the dress, the more I think it doesn’t have the structure to support itself. Strapless dresses support themselves at the waist, and this one has been structurally compromised by a keyhole. Someone obviously thought the tightness would help it stay up. Someone was wrong.

  • SusannaGA

    I’ll put in one good word for the makeup: brows. Wish I could get mine to look exactly like that.

  • Danielle

    I.. don’t hate it but I’m not wild about it. It’s different than her usual beachy, Kors-esque style, and it was probably chosen to get people buzzing about her again.

  • judybrowni

    Is there anyone who can wear that shade of lipstick?

    Looks like the symptom of an awful disease.

  • Belvane

    What I’ve always liked about her is she has the same beautiful posture and elegant carriage that her mother has. This outfit shows that off well.

  • crash1212

    Girl, that is not your makeup…or your hair. Dress is cute though and great clutch.

  • E. D.

    No on the lipstick especially in combination with that hair. The mid-90s shouldn’t come back.

  • Deedles


  • maygoon

    She borrowed Paz de la Huerta’s chocolate frosting lipstick

  • ashleysissell

    All I see is this.

  • KT

    I’m actually totally digging the dress, but GOD that is some horrible styling. Atrocious makeup job, tacky/cheap looking bag, wrong hair, wrong jewelry. Thank you for not being boring, Kate, but you can do much better.

  • Judy_J

    What’s with that makeup? I hardly recognized her.

  • LJCdoc

    Sure, but put her next to her douchebag looking costar, and suddenly, she looks totally glamorous.

  • connie238

    Why do her eyes look so squinty? is it the make-up? Or are they naturally that way? Don’t like the makeup, and the matte skirt and sequined top don’t work together for me.

  • smayper

    The top seems to be more about binding and restricting than enhancing.

  • Fanny_Trollope

    My God, she looks like a corpse. That is the worst makeup ever.

  • evave2

    I think the corset-booblet should have gone a little bit higher and covered more of her chest area. It looks as if she lifts her arms just to put on more lipstick while she’s having a bathroom break her breasts would lift out. So I think that is a design flaw. OR she might’ve ordered her corset-booblet to be cut that way (this is one of the few times I don’t have a runway model to judge original look by).

  • Jaeda Laurez

    Kate Hudson as Basketball Wife. She’s not too far deep, but she’s just THIS side of Aubrey O’Day for it to be cute.

  • John11581

    The only way I knew this was Kate Hudson was because you told me. What the hell happened?

  • sunflower

    I think the dress is fine, and actually could be styled well for her, but that makeup is a crime!

  • demidaemon

    Well, I hate the lipstick and the bodice, and, since the skirt is a nothing, that means I pretty much hate everything here.

  • Mr. J.

    Would she just go away?

  • quiltrx

    Here’s a smidge of my torso, and here’s my SCARY MAKEUP.
    No, Kate. Not ever again, please.

  • MandyM

    If there had not been a title, I honestly would have thought this was Sharon Stone. That is a huge compliment for Sharon and a huge slam on Kate. She is much too pretty for this.

  • Little_Olive

    Off point, but did she get a (totally unneeded) nose job? Or is the contouring that bad?

  • Man Dala

    Gurl, that’s not your make up. It belongs to Lorde.

    On a positive note, she’s got the abs.

  • kfizz

    Guh. This is tough. My first instinct was that she looked kind of awful, even if the dress is kind of awesome. It’s just SO not her dress. But then every detail is perfect for the look. Like, it’s entirely not her look, and it’s impeccably put together. Stylist, this is not your client.

  • JynxTheCat


  • Skippymom1

    I don’t get the two fingered ring thing? Is this the ladies’ version of diamond encrusted brass knuckles? Stupid.

  • Kim Elmore

    *Is* it just the makeup/tanner then? I was worried she had done something permanent to her face 🙁

  • lalahartma

    Not another bad cutout!?!

  • jonnyf8

    I’ve never seen a human that color before.

  • Fannie Wolston

    she should try to find a wine with less tannins?

  • lilazander

    She looks like Gwinne here. The make-up sucks all the way.
