Kate Hudson: Fashion is art

Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson explained that while "fashion is art", it needn't be expensive.

The actress admitted that many of the red carpet dresses stars sport are freebies from designers.

The 33-year-old spokesperson for Ann Taylor chose to work with the high street clothing line as she believes looking stylish needn't be expensive.

“When you see all those celebrities, they don’t really own those clothes,’’ Kate confided to WWD. “Fashion is art, and sometimes art is really expensive and other times it’s very affordable. Everyone has the opportunity to say what they want with their own fashion statement. When you wrap a scarf around your head or your arm, you are making your own fashion statement. Working with Ann Taylor and with Kay Krill, that’s what the relationship is about. You want people to be able to express themselves and afford it.”

It was announced in January this year that Kate would be broadening her role with Ann Taylor.

The blonde first appeared in the clothing brand's spring 2012 campaign, and it was reported that for 2013, she would be guest designing a summer capsule collection with the label's creative director Lisa Axelson.

Kate admitted she didn't actually have much input into designing the range, which will be launched in May.

The star has spoken before about comfort being her priority when it comes to her wardrobe.

She named her "best girlfriend" designer Stella McCartney as her favourite designer but says she admires all high end fashion creations.

“I love everything from accessories to clothes to shoes to purses, but for me, hands down, comfort is number one,” Kate gushed. "I love all these designers. I’m excited about the new head designer [Fausto Puglisi] at Emanuel Ungaro. I want to see what he’s going to bring to the table. But for me, style, colour, shape, that’s all-important. I can’t wear anything if it’s not comfortable. I do have that mom thing and I still like to look fashionable even when I’m running after my 20-month-old. Ann Taylor has that in spades, which is every time I put anything on, whether it be a pencil skirt to a tight pant, it’s always comfortable, whether it be fabric choice or the way it’s tailored.’’
