Hudson: I don’t wear things I don’t love

Kate Hudson has recalled the joyous moment she got her first pair of heels when she was just 12.

The Almost Famous actress regularly tops the best dressed lists at red carpet ceremonies. Kate thinks her secret is a combination of luck and a passion for fashion.

“I feel really lucky because I’ve gotten to work with great designers and costume designers. I love fashion so I get excited about being able to dress up,” she told “For red carpet, I really loved the Versace I wore to the Golden Globes this year and the gold Versace I wore to the Oscars in 2003. I also loved the Valentino print I wore to the Golden Globes in 2003 and the McQueen I wore to the Globes in 2013.

“There are so many more that I really loved – it’s hard to choose just one because I probably wouldn’t have worn anything I didn’t really love.”

To accompany her interview, Kate also modelled some of the brand’s autumn/winter collection. Her favourites were a pair of pink velvet ballet heels, which hark back to her many years of dance training. The 36-year-old has always loved shoes, and can still recall the joyous moment her mother Goldie Hawn bought her her first pair of heels.

“I must have been 12, and it was graduation. My mom didn’t let me wear heels back then, but I used to go in her closet and try hers on, of course,” she laughed. “I wore a sundress that had a big skirt and it was white with little cherries on it. My mom bought me my first pair of high heels that day; they must have only been an inch or so. They were bright red and she gave them to me all wrapped up. I was so happy! So my first pair of heels were bright red pumps, which I couldn’t have been more excited about.”
