In or Out: Kate Hudson
Why? Well it’s complicated. We love this dress and we love it when someone eschews the normal red carpet prom gowns and attempts to wear something that takes a little work.
Kate Hudson, for all her charms, just ain’t the girl for this dress.
Maybe that’s harsh because she looks good. In fact, she looks better than she almost always does. Then again, that’s all the dress. It’s doing all the work and she’s not holding up her end of the bargain by bringing the poise, the styling and the attitude that a dress like this requires. Let’s start with styling because that’s the easiest.
While we agree with the idea that a complicated dress requires toned-down styling, we can’t agree with the choices here. The hair is a step above “taking the kids to soccer” and the shoes are just too clunky and heavy. Makeup’s good.
But the problem is she just isn’t bringing the bearing that a big ol’ dress like this requires. She needs to be bringing her “I am a MOVIE STAR” pose and the problem is, she just doesn’t have one. What we’re trying to say is that the dress is wearing her and not vice versa. It doesn’t seem fair to give her an out because she’s trying so hard and it IS a fabulous dress. We’ll give her a pass for trying, if not pulling it off.
