Kate Hudson, the quintessential all-American girl, has grown up in the spotlight as the daughter of actress Goldie Hawn and her long-time love, Kurt Russell. All the while, we've watched her distinctive, glamorous style evolve on the big screen and on the red carpet.
Out of the spotlight, the Almay brand ambassador favors a down-to-earth bohemian street style. She'll throw on jeans and a tee to take in a baseball game or a flowy summer maxi-dress for running errands.
But at awards shows and screenings the bubbly actress goes high-wattage glamour. She tends to favor white or spangled column dresses, and every now and then she flashes some of that boho sensibility. While her choices are mostly drop-dead chic, she has had the occasional red carpet fail.
Hudson's breakout role in "Almost Famous" in '00 earned her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination and catapulted her into stardom. Since then, the beautiful blond has been almost as famous for her love life as for her big screen turns. After her '07 divorce from Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson -- father of her son Ryder, 7 -- came a string of famous liaisons -- with actor Owen Wilson, Yankees' slugger Alex Rodriguez and Muse frontman Matt Bellamy, her current boyfriend and soon-to-be baby daddy.
America's sweetheart will soon no longer be all ours. News broke earlier this year that she's purchased a London home in order to spend half the year near Bellamy. We still love you, Kate, and will welcome you home with open arms.
Today, Hudson's 32nd birthday, we celebrate the blond bombshell's evolving boho-glam style.
