    Didn’t Lindsay Lohan already wear this? No, Kate, no…

    Your foundation blending is awful and your dress looks like a half eaten grape lollipop.

    • Little_Olive

      I’ve come to think maybe there is a purpose to the Kardashians walking the earth after all. Those people contour and blend like there’s no tomorrow.

  • another_laura

    Jeez. I made this dress when I was a high school sophomore, I think. And it fit me better than this does her.

  • Kbear

    Wow – so cheap and unflattering. I’m not sure I would even wear this in my own bedroom as a nightie.

    • Carly Clement

      that fit is truly awful!

      • The Detonator

        If the sternum gap and all the seams are pulling, then it’s too tight.

  • Lily

    I wore a bridesmaid dress that exact color in a halter top (no plunging neckline, this was a Nazarene church!) in 2001. It was actually very pretty. For a bridesmaid dress. This is bridesmaid with lingerie top.

  • Jennnni

    Kate Hudson: “So I want EVERYONE to know that I’ve been doing sit-ups when they see me in the dress.”

    Stylist: “OK, so what else matters to you? Fit, color, hair, makeup, shoes?

    Kate Hudson: “Nothing. I don’t care about any of those things.”

    Stylist: “Ok I know exactly what to do.”

  • Kent Roby

    I would think: “Oh, the Kaleidoscope Ball; I’ll wear a fun bright pattern!”. Kate apparently thought: “Oh, an event for children; I’ll wear a sexy nightgown!” Celebs are nothing like the rest of us!

    • Pet Peeve

      Thank you for reading my mind.

    • Bellatrix Lestrange

      Sexy nightgown with an awful fit….Celebs are truly nothing like the rest of us

  • KT

    Great color, and that’s where the compliments end. That neckline/waistline situation is hellaciously unflattering, the hair and makeup are half-assed, and the overall effect is pretty underwhelming.

    But it’s hilarious that she chose to wear a boobtacular satin slip gown to a Children’s Hospital event.

    • tryinnottobetoojudgy

      It’s pretty bad when the neckline IS the waistline. This just isn’t what I think of when I think children’s hospital event. I do love the color, though.

    • Sam Smith

      I do like the color, and I’m surprised that its not wrinkled (so points for that as well).

      • Imasewsure

        Well to be fair, It looks like a mix between silk and neoprene so wrinkles were probably never gonna happen anyway

  • queeniethebold

    The fit is heinous. What the hell is going on from the waist up? Awful.

    As usual, she’s looking pretty thirsty.

    • kimmeister

      And why is it giving her twice as much junk in the trunk than she usually has?

  • Tacky as fuck. Kate, you are letting me down. I was rooting for you. I thought, “She’s not just another dim celeb offspring, she’s got something to offer.” I am wrong. Because honey, if you thought this Adult Video Awards presenter dress was just the very thing to wear to a Children’s Hospital BALL then you’re every bit as vapid as everyone said.

    • conniemd

      I’m so totally over her.

  • gabbi

    I’m no prude, but this feels a little MUCH for a children’s hospital benefit, doesn’t it?

    That could be excused, of course, if it weren’t tacky and cheap looking.

  • clatie

    of course

  • schadenfreudelicious

    Just needs some marabou slippers and a boa…..

  • Joanna

    Whatever is going on up near her hairline is tragic.

  • charlotte

    She is always so klassy.

  • oneWEIRDword

    It’s too small.

  • MK03

    Because nothing says “children’s hospital benefit” like a bikini top with a skirt hastily tacked on.

    • NBG

      That is exactly what it looked like in the thumbnail.

  • Cupcakes for Breakfast

    Hahahaha! Girl, you look like a fool.

  • Imasewsure

    Wow no mirrors….

  • Imasewsure

    And (ugly) dress aside, that is some seriously unflattering hair and makeup going on but it does complete the bathing suit vibe of her look anyway

  • MilaXX

    nightgown

  • Suh-nore….

  • Little_Olive

    Ill-fitting and nightgown-y. Gorgeous color on her tho.

    Also, she needs a new hair person.

  • MissRiss65

    Obvious nipple guard aka breast feeding pad – 3rd pic.

  • It’s the perfect dress for a Mattel event, because it looks like every Barbie “gown” I ever owned for my dolls.

  • Myra Amler

    This is doing her no favors…

  • Would it have killed her stylists to fit the bodice and iron the skirt?

  • Bittybis

    Her face looks like a completed paint-by-the-numbers canvas.

  • cocohall

    There is something very odd about her posing stance and the fit of this dress. And her makeup seems waxy or perhaps there is a little too much filler? I am no expert, but whatever is going on, doesn’t look fresh or pretty. Which seems at odd with the brand she is trying so hard to project (Pretty Happy was the book title, no?) I just don’t get this girl – she needs to go the school of JLo or Dolly P and find out how to create and maintain a brand. She’s just all over the map.

  • dschubba

    No

    • A_guy01

      And you know what? She knows it, too.

  • Bellatrix Lestrange

    The color is gorgeous and thats the only good thing about it

  • jif

    Poorly fitted and uncomfortable night gown.

  • Bish

    Keep the color, change everything else. I feel like Kate and her style team don’t understand the whole “dress for the venue” thing (see: Kate’s book tour for additional examples).

  • Catherine

    Next.

  • steph

    What is up with her terrible posing?

  • Kara Keenan

    I think my cousin bought the same dress at H&M for $19.95

  • Gatto Nero

    Anyone else thirsty?

  • DyanSwan

    Does she still act or is her job to wear tacky dresses and attend parties?

  • Notasaltine

    The thirst is strong with this one.

  • Amelia Rosenberg

    Trashy. Pretty color, but trashy.

  • frosty dufour

    Luscious color, odd posing.

  • Kaonashi

    Trashy. It looks cheap, and the seams are puckering.

  • SRQkitten

    The color is lovely but that’s the only positive thing I can say. Completely inappropriate for a children’s charity benefit. KH has been on my semirational hate list for being the epitome of getting where she is because of who her family is.
